My Reading Challenge

(Page updated Dec 2017)

My TBR list is absolutely out of control. I’m currently consolidating my reading lists from Evernote, Google Drive, and Amazon all into Goodreads, so if you want to see the full scope of my obsession, please keep checking here!

I’ve decided to map the new year into 12 overall themes to guide my book choices, knowing myself enough to accept that probably not all of my posts every month will match up. I’m also planning on following the 2018 POPSUGAR Reading Challenge in the new year, as well as pledge to read 45 books on Goodreads!

Here’s what I’m thinking for the new year:

JAN 2018 – Inspirational books
FEB 2018 – Isn’t it romantic
MAR 2018 – Girl heroes
APR 2018 – Literary tourism
MAY 2018 – Fantasy/Sci-fi
JUN 2018 – YA books
JUL 2018 – Books that were gifts
AUG 2018 – Classics
SEP 2018 – Murder mysteries/True crime
OCT 2018 – Supernatural/Horror
NOV 2018 – Winter/Christmas
DEC 2018 – Winter/Christmas/Best book I read in 2018

I’m not going to lie, I could almost definitely work my way through this challenge with books I already own, BUT I love to hear suggestions!!

Leave a comment, send me a message (see contact info here) – I’d love to hear from you!





  1. These are great! A large percentage of them are either on my TBR bookcase – Rebecca, The Secret Keeper, The Happiness Project, or I’ve read them… and liked some of them. Didn’t love Owen Meany but can appreciate why others do. I sighed a large sigh of relief when I finished 1984 (took me 5 tries!) LOVED The Night Circus.
    Awesome list.


    • Thanks (: I think I’ve acquired a few gems over the years, but the pile never seems to go down! I’ve given 1984 a couple of tries, myself, and I think I’ve realized I like the idea of it more than the actual reality. My Goodreads wishlist is absurdly huge, so I had to limit my bookshelf to the stuff I already own.


  2. Oh Coraline is brilliant! Absolutely love the film too. Have you read anything by Gillian Flynn yet? I’ve just finished Gone Girl and really enjoyed it. Haven’t read Dark Places yet and not sure about Sharp Objects- apparently it’s meant to be really twisted :/


    • Omg yes!! I adored Gone Girl, but it was supremely disturbing. I don’t want to accept that people can be so twisted. I picked up Dark Places the last time I was at the bookstore, but I haven’t started it yet. I heard that Dark Places and Sharp Objects aren’t as good as Gone Girl, but if they’re just a fraction as engrossing I think they’re worth a read.
