2017 Reading Challenge


Who loves to read? If you’re a voracious reader like me, you may find yourself in the same situation that I frequently find myself in. I tend to gravitate towards authors I know that I like, genres I know that I’m into, or re-reading books that I loved.

Sometimes, I find myself stuck in a reading “rut” and don’t know what to read next. I figured this challenge would make it easier for myself and others!

With the new year just around the corner, I wanted to pose a reading challenge for both myself and my readers.

I’ve compiled a list of my favorite reading challenges I’ve found on the internet, and am aiming to complete the entire list throughout 2017.

Sidenote: These books CANNOT be books that I have read before 2017.

Are YOU ready to take on the challenge?
