If you love to read, I would like to invite you to join me in this challenge and lets read 52 books during 2019. No shame involved if you don’t read 52 books. To be honest, I am not sure I will be able to achieve such a challenge, but I for sure try my best. This list is just to help you decide what books to read, not set in stone. Also, some you will be able to cross several prompts with one book, and that’s ok. You’ll have room to read more!
One thing I would like to remark is that you do not need to be on a craze if you decide to this challenge. Read at your own pace and enjoy what you are reading. If you are not into horror, for example, read a book genre you love instead. While writing this reading challenge prompts, I tried to be as inclusive as possible and to read books I would not read otherwise.

Yeay!!! Glad you are joining, Sharon. Cheers to Happy Readings!
I like the prompts!
I am going to try this challenge!
I’m sure we are going to have fun finding books together! Welcome!
Oh this sounds awesome! I use to love reading but after kids I kind of put it on the way side. Good luck!
Thank you,Jennie! Yes, same happened to me. Last year I decided to read more and so I did. Sometimes I fell asleep after reading a page or almost burn food while trying to read and cook, but I got my reading in. Happy to be reading again, hope you are able to join us!
What a great reading list. One of my plans is to read at least 52 books this year. Your challenge is perfect. I just have to figure out how to save your list where I can find it.
Thanks, Nita! I’ll be glad to send it via email. The more the merrier participating and discussing the search for books. Happy reading!
I’m a little late, but I’d be interested in joining this challenge. 💛
Hi, Katricia, sure! I’m happy you like the challenge list and joining! We just cross off the books from the list as we read them. If you need help finding any book from the categories, I’m working on a post giving options of books. I’ll tag you as soon as I finish it. Welcome and happy reading!
