My 30 Books List for 2019 Reading Challenge

New Year! New Hope and New Challenge.

And now I am beyond excited to announce that top 30 books in my Reading Challenge pile of 2019!

This year’s challenge will take on the format as I will attempt to read my way through 52 books in 52 weeks. In the list below, you will find thirty different categories for now and I’m planning to add twenty-two more books from review requests to this list as it goes. Some of my favourites from this year’s categories include: “A book about a cult,” “True crime novel,” and “A book featuring a false confession.” Many of these categories were suggested by readers who participated in last year’s various online reading challenge and I can’t wait to dive in!

If you’re like me, you’ve got big plans for 2019. Reading plans, the list is here. With the new year upon us, it’s a great time to set a new reading goal. To help you get started, you can also make use of below categories I’ve come up with. Some are fan favorites from past challenges, and others are brand new! Check out my list below and get reading!
