2017 Reading Challenge

Monday, January 30, 2017

This weekend I was strolling through a local used book store searching for books for little's library. This has become a hobby of mine since finding out I was pregnant as I try to track down as many books as I can from my own childhood. 

When we were at the checkout counter I came across a pamphlet for a reading challenge. The categories caught my eye right away. They were a little different than the ones I've seen on other challenges like this, and since I've been spending a lot more of my weekend time lounging on the couch these days I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to knock a few books off my reading list before baby gets here. 

Here are the categories for the challenge and the books I've chosen to read for each... 

That you can read in one day // Talking As Fast As I Can by Lauren Graham. 
That was published the year you were born // Along Came a Spider by James Patterson. 
In which the protagonist is an animal // The Tale of Despereaux by Kate DiCamillo. 
With the name of a color in the title // A Spool of Blue Thread by Anne Tyler. 
That takes place on an island // The Search by Nora Roberts. 
That was banned at some point // Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll. 
That everyone said is "so much better than the movie" // The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown
A random stranger suggested to you // The Girl Before by J.P. Delaney. 
That you weaseled out of reading in high school // Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury. 
That you think you will hate // Wild by Cheryl Strayed. 
That you think you will love // The Book of Speculation by Erika Swyler. 
That you have already read and loved // Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling. 

I hope you'll join along! What are some of the books you'd read for each category?


  1. I am so excited that I will be able to read for fun soon! I've missed it.

  2. Ooo fun challenge! That looks like an awesome one!
