Reading Challenge- 12 Books in 2018

One of my goals this year is to read 12 books. I used to love reading and I still do but it has become increasingly harder for me to get through enough books or to put in the time I used to. To be honest a lot of my time last year was spent on social media and that needs to change. So I’m returning to my first love.

I came across a great reading challenge on Adventurous Kate that sounded really fun and would get me back into the habit of reading again. The challenge is to read books within a particular theme. Some suggestions she listed were

  • books by women of color
  • memoirs from people you admire
  • books about food
  • books about privilege in America

My challenge: 12 books by women of color (not only Black authors)

I’ve begun reading Swing Time by Zadie Smith and it just seems logical to continue along that vein. I also want to expand my horizons and get to know more contemporary women writers. This challenge will be a great way to do so.

Check out Kate’s post to come up with some ideas of your own.

Happy reading!
