january monthly motif

The Monthly Motif Reading Challenge theme for January is Diversify Your Reading. The challenge is to read books with a character (or written by an author) of a race, religion, or sexual orientation other than your own.

If you’re not sure what to read for this topic – check out 15 Diverse Fantasy Novels to Read ASAP. I highly recommend #1 on the list – The Wrath & The Dawn, Renee Ahdieh.

Also, feel free to partner with some other Diversity Reading Challenges happening this month.

January 1-15, 2017 is the Dumbledore’s Army Readathon. And there is the yearlong Diversity Reading Challenge with the theme for January being diverse folklore / mythology. They have a fantastic recommended reading list.

When you’ve completed your January read for this challenge, link to your review using the linky below. The linky will remain open until February 10th.

    One of the books I got for Christmas from my family fit right in with this theme. I just finished it and added my review to the link. Now to start thinking about next month!
