The Book Riot 2015 Read Harder Challenge

This post is going to be used to track my progress for this Book Riot 2015 Read Harder Challenge that I pledged to complete in my 2015 Bookish Resolution post:

A book written by someone when they were under the age of 25

A book written by someone when they were over the age of 65

A collection of short stories (either by one person or an anthology by many people)

A book published by an indie press

A book by or about someone that identifies as LGBTQ- The Picture of Dorian Gray Oscar Wilde

A book by a person whose gender is different from your own – Die Trying Lee Child

A book that takes place in Asia

A book by an author from Africa

A book that is by or about someone from an indigenous culture (Native Americans,Aboriginals, etc.)

A microhistory

A YA novel – Bloodlines Richelle Mead

A sci-fi novel

A romance novel – Perfect Strangers Tasmina Perry

A National Book Award, Man Booker Prize or Pulitzer Prize winner from the last decade

A book that is a retelling of a classic story (fairytale, Shakespearian play, classic novel, etc.)

An audiobook

A collection of poetry

A book that someone else has recommended to you – A Hopeless Romantic Harriet Evans

A book that was originally published in another language

A graphic novel, a graphic memoir or a collection of comics of any kind (Hi, have you met Panels?)

A book that you would consider a guilty pleasure (Read, and then realize that good entertainment is nothing to feel guilty over)

A book published before 1850

A book published this year

A self-improvement book (can be traditionally or non-traditionally considered “self-improvement”

Over the course of the year, or the reading challenge, I am going to update this post to reflect the books I have read and the challenges I have completed. As I read, some of the books I have chosen may replace the ones that already fulfil the challenge requirement – mainly so the same authors don’t appear over and over again!

There will some inevitable overlap with my 2015 Reading Challenge.
