Another day, another reading challenge? Can that be how we try our best to do 2018? Sounds great to me. This list comes to us from Modern Mrs. Darcy, and if you’ll bear with me, we’ve got one more reading challenge tomorrow.
Three reading challenges.
In the year I swore I wouldn’t do a reading challenge.
A classic you’ve been meaning to read – Jane Eyre, by Charlotte Bronte
A book recommended by someone with great taste – Crossing to Safety, by Wallace Stegner (recommended by creator of this here book challenge, Anne Bogel, who used it with her book club)
A book in translation – Anna Karenina, by Leo Tolstoy (Do you dare me?)
A book nominated for an award in 2018 – TBD, because we’re not in 2018 yet
A book of poetry, a play, or an essay collection – Upstream, by Mary Oliver
A book you can read in a day – Anything is Possible, by Elizabeth Strout
A book that’s more than 500 pages – Far from the Tree, by Andrew Solomon (been meaning to read it forever)
A book by a favorite author – Better than Before, by Gretchen Rubin
A book recommended by an indie bookseller or a librarian – TBD
A banned book – Their Eyes Were Watching God, by Zora Neale Hurston
A memoir, biography, or book of creative nonfiction – The Art of Memoir, by Mary Karr
A book by an author of a different race, ethnicity or religion than your own – Long Way Down, by Jason Reynolds
