2019 Reading Challenge

I love to read. Every year I set myself a challenge to read at least 12 books and I always complete it. For my 2019 reading challenge I’ve decided to do things a little differently. I’ve made my own reading challenge. I’ve seen lots of reading challenges online, but they’ve always contained one or more thing subject that has put me off of taking part. So this one appeals to all the things I like and I thought I would share it with you.

I tend to buy most of my books on Amazon because it usually has the best prices, but nothing beats wandering around a bookshop. I find the displays often give me inspiration if I’m not sure what I want to read next. Another great place for reading inspiration is Goodreads – this is where I usually take part in a yearly reading challenge.

As a huge fan of The Gilmore Girls, I have wanted to push myself to read Rory’s reading list, but I still haven’t gotten round to doing it. So I’ve decided to include Rory’s list in my reading challenge.
