My 2019 Reading challenge

If you read yesterday's goals for 2019 post you will know that one of my goals for 2019 is to read 60 books which works out at 5 books a month. I've set my goal up on goodreads and I've now decided that I want to challenge myself with some prompts to get me reading a more diverse range.

There are so many reading challenges and I've actually found the choice quite overwhelming so instead of joining in with a particular one or few I've taken some ideas from a range of challenges and made my own prompt list up.

So here is my little challenge:

  • A vintage classic 
  • A book published in 2019
  • A fantasy 
  • A historical fiction
  • A book I wouldn't usually read
  • A book about books
  • A book about friendship
  • A fairytail retelling 
  • A self help book
  • A book by a new to me author 
  • A young adult fiction
  • A book that's been turned into A film
  • A book from a favourite author I've not yet read
  • A series 
  • A book based in another country
  • A Horror

I thought I’d also share my current TBR pile, i.e. the books that I’ve bought or been given as gifts recently and haven’t had a chance to read yet. There are currently approxamtly just under 20 unread books sitting on my bookshelves, including the following:

  • In the Dark by Cara Hunter
  • True places by Sonja yoerg
  • Everything I never told you by Celeste Ng 
  • One thousand stars and you by Isabelle Broom
  • Nine perfect strangers by Liane Moriarty
  • A spark of light by Jodi Picoult
  • The Great alone by Kirstin Hannah
