This challenge will hopefully help me go through some of these books that have been on my shelf for a long time.
Review copies: 17
Bookshelf at home: 59
Bookshelf at school: ** About 10?**
The damage is better than I thought it would be!
I want to read 35% of my TBR bookshelf this year, so at least 30 books.
BOOK RIOT’S READ HARDER CHALLENGE 2016
I liked this one better than Popsugar’s this year. And, I have to admit, some of these might be harder for me to find. This should also help me knock out some of the books that are already on my bookshelf!
- Read a horror book
- Read a nonfiction book about science
- Read a collection of essays
- Read a book out loud to someone else
- Read a middle grade novel
- Read a biography (not memoir or autobiography)
- Read a dystopian or post-apocalyptic novel
- Read a book originally published in the decade you were born (the 80s)
- Listen to an audiobook that has won an Audie award
- Read a book over 500 pages long
- Read a book under 100 pages
- Read a book by or about a person that identifies as transgender
- Read a book that is set in the Middle East
- Read a book that is by an author from Southeast Asia
- Read a book of historical fiction set before 1900
- Read the first book in a series by a person of color
- Read a non-superhero comic that debuted in the last 3 years
- Read a book that was adapted into a movie, then watch the movie. Debate which is better.
- Read a nonfiction book about feminism or dealing with feminist themes.
- Read a book about religion (fiction or nonfiction)
- Read a book about politics, in your country or another (fiction or nonfiction)
- Read a food memoir
- Read a play
- Read a book with a main character that has a mental illness
And I’m not sure how invested in this one I am, as I mentioned above, but I’d like to look at it every now and then to make sure I’m diversifying my reading.
It’s a good thing so many of these are overlapping!
What (if any) challenges are you participating in this year?
