Reading Challenge Progress: February, 2019

I’m participating in two reading challenges in 2019. First, I have dedicated myself to reading 100 books this year on Goodreads. Last year I only made it to 70, so I am hoping that this year I can make it all the way to 100. See my current progress here.

Since 100 books is quite a lot, I have challenged myself to read 52 Books in 52 Weeks, in accordance with the following categories. This will challenge me to step outside my normal comfort zone and explore books that I otherwise would not read. See my current progress below. If you have any suggestions for me, I’d love to hear them!

2019 Reading Challenge + FREE PRINTABLE

I am totally down for this challenge!

mommy mannegren

It’s that time again!

After the huge success of last year’s challenge, I am beyond excited to announce that the 2019 Reading Challenge is here!

This year’s challenge will take on the same format as last year as we attempt to read our way through 52 books in 52 weeks. In the graphic below, you will find fifty-two different categories. Some of my favourites from this year include: “a one-word title,” “an author who uses a pseudonym,” and “a family member’s favourite book.” Many of these categories were suggested by readers who participated in last year’s challenge and I can’t wait to dive in!
