Hosted by The Bookshelf Gargoyle
The Challenge will run from January 1st to December 31, 2017.
- Challengees must read at least one book from each category (listed below). Challengees must read a DIFFERENT book for each category – even if your book title might fit a number of categories, it will only count towards a single category. Challengees are free to choose which category best suits.
- Books selected can be from any genre and aimed at any age group. Picture books, anthologies, nonfiction, graphic novels and audiobooks are all okay to include.
- The categories listed are a loose guide and creative interpretation of the categories is not only encouraged, but applauded.
- Challengees should link their reviews/progress under the relevant linky lists on this page. If you don’t have a blog, you could link to your Goodreads shelf/reviews, or simply comment on this page as you go.
