2018 Reading Challenge #2

2018 Reading Challenge #2

The next reading challenge for next year is the 2018 Reading Challenge 52 Books in 52 Weeks.

Now, I don’t know about you, but depending on the size of the book and how well I like it, I can read three books in a week or one book in three weeks. I can easily read 52 books in a year, but it definitely won’t be one per week.

Regardless! Here’s the list:

  1. A book by a Canadian author
  2. A childhood favorite
  3. A novel that is considered a “classic” (who decides this? English teachers?)
  4. A mystery novel
  5. A book you’ve been meaning to read but haven’t gotten to
  6. A science fiction novel
  7. An adventure/espionage novel
  8. A biography
  9. A book that challenges your viewpoint
  10. The first book in a trilogy
  11. A book with over 600 pages (in a week? with my schedule? probs not happening)
  12. A book you can read in a day (ok, combined with the one above, these can both be read in two weeks)
  13. A book that has won a Pulitzer Prize
  14. Any book from the 2017 Good Reads Choice Awards (well I completely missed out on voting…)
  15. A book that has been made into a movie (so many choices)
  16. A book chosen solely by its cover
  17. A book on theology
  18. A celebrity memoir
  19. A book with a six word title (are we counting “the” and “and”?)
  20. A book set in a country you want to visit
  21. A book that makes you laugh out loud
  22. A book you read in school
  23. A book with a green spine
  24. A book with a character that shares your name
  25. A book published in 2018
  26. A book recommended by a friend
  27. A book recommended by a librarian (can I recommend one to myself?)
  28. A book written by an author under 30
  29. A book written before 1920
  30. A book that makes you cry (or almost cry because I don’t do that)
  31. An e-book
  32. A book with bad reviews (this shouldn’t be hard)
  33. A YA bestseller
