It’s July already and I don’t know where the year has gone. I made my own reading challenge in December last year because why not. I did the same the year before. And I really loved putting it all together. Doing them on the either hand is somewhat trickier. Especially when you forget about them, haha!
I have yet to look at this so let’s see if I actually remember them all or not.
Let’s see how well/bad I’m doing on the challenge then 🙂
A translated fantasy/magical realism book ✅
A book written by a comedian ❌
Not yet, but I got Ali Wong’s book in mind for this
A book chosen based on the title alone ✅
A book set on an island ✅
A book about a small community ✅
A book written in English by someone who learnt English as a second language ❌
Oh shit! I completely forgot about this one. I need to do some research on it. I have no idea if any of the books I’ve read qualifies for this.
An own voice SFF from three different continents ❌
So far I’ve got North-America (Native American), South America (Ecuador-American) but I did get a Central American feel from this book so maybe that’s where it’s kind off set, and Africa (Nigerian-American). Do you think I can do all 7 continents?
A queer SFF ✅✅
Yeah, I think I got this one covered…
A social media recommendation ❌
I’ve almost completely forgotten about my bookstagram account. The last photo I posted was back in February, pre-covid apparently. I need to get back into it.
+800 page classic ❌
Not yet, but I have decided on The Count of Monte Cristo and it’s been on my TBR since April…
5 books I bought in 2018 (including Audible purchases) ❌
Only The Hazel Wood and The Tigers Daughter so far. I need to pick up a few more. I had forgotten this one though so now I should go through all the books I bought in 2018 so I have a list to tick off.
A 2019 GoodReads People Choice winner ✅
Recursion by Blake Crouch. I have to admit I didn’t know this was a winner… haha! how lucky 🙂
A penguin modern classic ❌
Not yet and I haven’t made up my mind either for this one. I had forgotten about this one.
A book by an author who past away in 2018 ✅
Ursula K LeGuin
Pre-2000 SFF written by a female author ✅
Left Hand of Darkness
A book about writing ❌
Not yet, but I bought one…
I might be able to fill several of these with books, but the ultimate goal is to to have no repetitions of books per challenge. So I have some work in front of me 🙂
