The goal is to read 1 non-fiction, and 1 fiction book for each of Henry VIII's wives. This is a master list of the books that I am planning to read for this challenge. Once read, I will link them to my book reviews, and post the date that I finished reading them. They do not have to be read in any particular order.

The object is to read some of those books collecting dust on your bookshelves. Sounds like a plan to me. There for a while, I collected books without reading them! A fetish me thinks. ;)

Each month has a theme, which you can completely ignore if you want to, but you have to review it on the third Wednesday of the month. Here are the themes, and the books that I have chosen for the year:

January 19 - We Love Short Shorts! (category romance, short stories, novella etc.)
February 16 - Series Catch-Up (a book from a series you are behind on)
March 16 - Recommended Read (a book that was recommended to you)
April 20 - Contemporary
May 18 - Something Different (outside your comfort zone, unusual setting, non-romance etc.)
June 15 - Favorite Trope (a favorite theme - amnesia? secret baby? fairy tale? friends-to-lovers? etc.)
July 20 - Award Nominee or Winner (links to past RITA finalists and winners TBA)
August 17 - Kicking It Old School (publication date 10 years or older)
September 21 - Random Pick (a built-in off-theme month - go where your mood takes you!)
October 19 - Paranormal or Romantic Suspense
November 16 - Historical
December 21 - Holiday Themes

Weekend Warrior - My goal is to listen to 5-10 audiobooks in 2016. I haven't chosen them yet, but I am thinking they will be the 'Outlander' series. :)
