Hey guys!

After checking out my Goodreads to-read list and my general bookshelves and wish-lists, there are so many books that I simply want to read, and yet for some reason or another I haven’t had a chance to get around to reading them. And quite simply, I love lists! So I set about diversifying my reading list with a reading challenge, as that is bound to motivate me to read all those books I’ve been wanting to delve into.

I had a look online (mainly through Goodreads, other book blogs, Pinterest and Google Images) but I found that most of them were really short, or not diverse enough. Therefore, I took some ideas from the ones I liked best and blended them all into a master reading challenge list.

Note to reader: While some of the ideas are my own, I don’t take any credit for the ideas that have been used elsewhere. I just want to share them in a list in the hope they may also inspire you also in your reading journey.

It also turns out that my friend, Polly has been struggling with the same thing. So together, we compiled this epic list and inserted some of the books we are planning to read this year to reach our reading goals.

Note from Polly: Hey guys! Because Sally started asking me for suggestions for this list I decided to join it, because I realised it would be cool to have an actual idea of what to read – plus I trust her taste in books. 😉 Generally I feel like I spend too much of my time reading YA contemporary for an easy read but with my lil’ reading buddy  who will no doubt yell at me if I get behind I know I can deffo read almost anything. :’)

(Also, since for some of the categories either Polly or I have already read one of the books, they may be marked in a different colours to indicate who they are for.)

Key

Black: both of us
