monthly motif challenge

I'm attempting the monthly motif challenge!  hahaha  We'll see how well that goes.

Hosted by Bookmark To Blog every month you read a different book that fits into the assigned category.  Only one book a month!  Should be manageable, right?  If you'd like to attempt with me you can do that here.  The awesome things about this challenge is that I can read them out of order, which is awesome because I've already read February's!

Here's the categories:

JAN- Book to Movie or Audio
Read a book that has a movie based off of it. For an extra challenge, see the movie or listen to the audio book as well.
FEBAward Winner
Read a book that has won recognition or a literary award.  Here's a list of literary awards to help you get started on your search: Literary Awards.
MAR-  Genre Jumble Read a book in a genre that you've never tried or that you're least familiar with. For example, if you typically reach for romance novels, try a mystery this time. Ask your local librarian for great suggestions on the genre your least familiar with.
APRMystery, Murder, and Mayhem 
Read a murder/mystery book, a book in which someone dies of mysterious causes, or a book in which the truth must come out.
MAYLibrary Love
Show your library some love and visit your local branch. Choose a book to read that they have on display.
JUN Take A Trip 
Choose a book to read that takes place in a country different than the one you live in or choose a book written by an author that is from a country different than your own.
JULStanding Up
Read a book in which the main character stands up for themselves, stands against an enemy, or stands up for something they believe in.
AUGAlternate Reality
Read a book that's set in the future, on another planet, in another dimension, or in an unknown world. A Dystopian book will count this month as well. 
SEPFurry Friends
Read a book that includes an animal either as a main character or supporting character. Horses, cats, dogs, insects, bird, etc. The book doesn't have to be about the animal but the animal needs to play some sort of role in the story or be mentioned several times throughout the book.
OCTGoblins, and Ghost, and Ghouls, Oh My!
Cozy mystery ghost stories, paranormal creeptastic, funky fantasy creatures- it's up to you!
NOVAn Oldie but a Goodie
Pick a book published before 2000 that you've always wanted to read, but just never got to. Or pick a book set in the past (before 2000). 
DECThat's a Wrap
Finish a series you've been meaning to finish or read the next book in a series you started but never finished
