Books This & That

2019 Reading Challenge

*This post may contain affiliate links.

As our year comes to a close and we get ready for another trip around the sun, I’ve been thinking about my goals for 2019. One goal I have this year is to read more books that are outside of my comfort zone. I typically stick to the same genres, so I thought I would tap into my competitive side and try out a reading challenge to encourage myself to read books that I might usually overlook.

I will link my choices for each theme over time as I choose them to give you an idea of what you could look for. You can also find my choices in my monthly reading lists.
