I came across this challenge on Becca's blog (here), although I believe it was originaly posted (here). I thought, what a great way to read a wider range of books and to expand my reading. I'm going to attempt it, I can't promise that it'll be complete though! I've decided to try a lot of things in 2016, so let's see how it all goes. I feel like I'll just forget about half of it!

Here's the challenge, I can't wait to see if I can complete it! I will cheat a little and cross a few off with one book, but hey life still happens you know!

A book based on a fairytale The Wrath and the Dawn (it counts, ok?)
A national book award winner
A YA bestseller
A book you haven't read since high school 
A book set in your home state The Girl on the Train 
A book translated to English  
A romance set in the future 
A book set in Europe Prisoner of Night and Fog
A book that's under 150 pages
A New York Times bestseller
A book that's becoming a movie this year
A book recommended by someone you just met 
A self improvement book 
A book you can finish in a day 
A book written by a celebrity
A political memoir 
A book at least 100 years older than you 
A book that's more than 600 pages
A book from Oprah's Book Club 
A science-fiction novel
A book recommended by a family member 
A graphic novel 
A book that is published by 2016 
A book with a protagonist who has your occupation 
A book that takes place during Summer The Girl on the Train 
A book and its prequel 
A murder mystery Prisoner of Night and Fog
A book written by a comedian
A dystopian novel
A book with a blue cover
A book of poetry
The first book you see in a bookstore
A classic from the 20th century
A book from the library 
An autobiography
A book about a road trip 
A book about a culture you're unfamiliar with The Wrath and the Dawn
A satirical book 
A book that takes place on an island
A book that's guaranteed to bring you joy  

I'd love recommendations for any of these challenges! Especially for some of the ones I'd find a little harder to read (Political memoir, a book by a celebrity, a graphic novel, a book 100 years older than me(what) and autobiography etc). So recommendations are more than welcome!:)

Are you doing the 2016 Reading Challenge?


  1. I really want to do a reading challenge! Couldn't read that many though, it'll take me forever hahaha! 🎀

    1. I'm honestly terrified I'm not going to complete it and everyone will laugh at me hahaha :(

  2. I did the 2015 one but I failed XD So I don't think I'll be joining this one, since I felt so much pressure last year to complete it and I don't want to feel it again :D Goodluck!

    1. Ahh that sucks! I don't want to feel pressure, but I'm motivated to do it (for now) ahahah!

  3. I'm doing the challenge for the first time this year! I'm quite excited to see how I've done by the end of the year.


  4. I would love to a challenge like this, but its hard enough for me to stick to basic TBR let alone specific challenges (laughing emoji)

    1. That's the same with me! I suck with all of it, but this year I want to give it a try and see!

  5. What a challenge! Good luck! x
