Read at Midnight hosts the cutest of reading challenges (remember The Reading Quest?) and this December brings a casual Animal Crossing themed one. I have not been playing the game because I know what a time suck it will be if I start, but that won’t stop me jumping on board with #ReadersCrossing!
I kinda want to do the Natural path but I don’t think I have any Wilderness books on my TBR and I can’t really buy anything this time of year. So I’m going to do the Cute path for starters. For most of these I have a lot of choices so my list isn’t set in stone. This runs from 10th to 31st December.
Graphic Novel or Manga: Monstress: Awakening by Marjorie M. Liu + Sana Takeda
Pink Cover: Moxie by Jennifer Mathieu
Main Romantic Plot: The Geek’s Guide to Unrequited Love by Sarvenaz Tash
Middle Grade or Children: La Belle Sauvage by Philip Pullman
Contemporary: Love, Hate & Other Filters by Samira Ahmed
Further ahead are challenges for 2018. I’m hosting my own, so of course I will be ploughing through Science Fiction vs Fantasy Bingo. To be honest, it’s not too challenging as they are mostly things I read anyway. I am also tempted by the POPSUGAR list, which I might do casually like I did with my 2017 challenges. I am keeping an eye out for Book Riot‘s Read Harder but I suspect it will be a bit too obscure to fully enjoy completing.
One I have picked out is Beat the Backlist which is pretty aligned with what I wanted to do next year PLUS it has weekly bookstagram prompts. It’s an easy one to combine with the prompt-based challenges too. Win win!
My TBR is over 500 books so I’m sure I’ll have plenty to read for this! I will aim to read at least 30 backlist titles next year and spend a bit of time talking about books I’ve read and loved in the past.
