Reading Challenge 2015

I usually try to join a couple of reading challenges every year. This year, I found one that combines several ones here. I will give this a try but might only fulfill it partly this year. I might do some that fit in two or more categories but you never know. Looks interesting in any case.

1.    A book with more than 500 pages
2.    A classic romance
3.    A book that became a movie
4.    A book published this year
5.    A book with a number in the title
6.    A book written by someone under 30
7.    A book with nonhuman characters
8.    A funny book
9.    A book by a female author
10.    A mystery or thriller
11.    A book with a one-word title
12.    A book of short stories
13.    A book set in a different country
14.    A nonfiction book
15.    A popular author's first book
16.    A book from an author you love that you haven't read yet
17.    A book a friend recommended
18.    A Pulitzer Prize-winning book
19.    A book based on a true story
20.    A book at the bottom of your to-read list
21.    A book your mom loves
22.    A book that scares you
23.    A book more than 100 years old
24.    A book based entirely on its cover
25.    A book you were supposed to read in school but didn't
26.    A memoir
27.    A book you can finish in a day
28.    A book with antonyms in the title
29.    A book set somewhere you've always wanted to visit
30.    A book that came out the year you were born
31.    A book with bad reviews
32.    A trilogy

  1. I'm doing a couple of challenges this year, but would like to give this one a try too.

    1. Now, that's the spirit. We can always give something a try. I am not sure whether I will have 50 different books for the list but I will see that I fill it.

      Happy reading,

  2. It's an interesting challenge... many of the categories were in the Reading Bingo 2014 which I did in December as a kind of summary of last year's reads.

    Apart from the perpetual challenge Read the Nobels, I signed up for two reading challenges this year: Back to the Classics Challenge 2015 and 2015 Women Challenge. A Japanese Literature Challenge may follow later provided that Bellezza Mjs will host it again...

    1. Thank you, Edith, your challenges look highly interesting, as well. I would love to do them all, especially the first two (well, I already contribute to the Nobel site, as well, I think that's where we "met") but I really think I should stop with doing any more. I have not read that many books this year, yet, mainly due to the fact that they all seem to have about 900-1,000 pages each. So, I will keep this in mind for 2016. Thank you so much.

      Have a good day,
