New Year’s Challenge: A Book a Month

This month’s study break posts are simply lists of twelve New Year’s goals – one for each month of the year.

Every blogger remotely interested in reading eventually composes a New Year’s booklist. So I suppose it is about time we announced a reading scavenger hunt. The 2021 reading challenge includes:

  1. A book from every continent.
  2. A novel made into a movie you’ve seen.
  3. A book of mythology (or other topic) from a culture you haven’t read from before.
  4. A book by a scientist first published at least a hundred years ago.
  5. An autobiography by someone you have something in common with.
  6. A book with an invertebrate in the title or on the cover.
  7. A collection of essays.
  8. A Pulitzer, Aventis, or AAAS/Subaru Prize winning book.
  9. A book about a subject you’ve always thought is kinda silly.
  10. A book including camels.
  11. A book with purple on the cover.
  12. A book with opening lines in a language other than that of the text.

Whether or not you end up using this reading challenge, you can share your current booklist below!

  1. This looks really fun!
    I’m currently reading (slowly) War and Peace by Tolstoy so will bookmark this challenge for another time 😁

    Two books on my list that I’m super looking forward to reading: Killing Commendatore by Murakami and The Courage to Be Disliked by Koga and Kishimi. Seems to be Japanese author time coming up!
