2019 Reading Challenge

2019 Reading Challenge

Stop me if you’ve heard this one…

There are so many reading challenges that come out this time of year. Whether it’s a number to top, a genre to try, or just wrapping your head around the Rory Gilmore Reading Challenge.

This year, I’m making one for myself. I’d love it if you joined me! You’ll see this challenge is totally customizable, depending on your own life experience and what new authors you find!

And away we go! Here’s my reading challenge for 2019:

  1. A New York Times Bestseller from 2018

  2. A self-help book on creativity

  3. An historical fiction novel set in a time period I don’t know much about

  4. A novel in a new genre (for me, that’s horror! eep!)

  5. A book written by someone younger than me

  6. A nonfiction book about a female historical figure

  7. A book that teaches me a new skill

  8. A book written by a woman of color

  9. A book picked up at a used bookstore

  10. A book set somewhere I’ve never been

  11. A book set somewhere I want to go

  12. A book being adapted for the screen this year

  13. A book with 5-star reviews on Goodreads

  14. A book that challenges me

  15. A book in a YA fantasy trilogy

Could this challenge have more books on it? Sure! But I want to challenge myself to read differently this year, not necessarily to read more (although I’m certainly not opposed to that prospect!).

I would love if you joined me on my reading quest this year! If you do, be sure to tag me @christinedtrant.

Happy Reading!
