It’s already February, where did January go? We hope you are enjoying this year’s challenge and are managing to read along during this difficult time which, here in the UK at least, doesn’t seem to be getting any better.
Just a reminder of this year’s challenge, we wanted to stick to the inclusive style of the 2020 challenge but have different categories. We’re still going to have the three options, Easy, Hard and Super Reader but this year’s monthly category will be “Read Around the World”. Hopefully, this will mean that everyone can join in, whether you read one book a month or three or more!
February’s categories are:-
EASY – ALPHABETICAL CHALLENGE
Read a book with a title that begins with a B or N
I’m not going to list recommendations this year as obviously, the number of books fitting these categories are endless.
HARD – MONTHLY CATEGORY CHALLENGE
Read a book set in or by an author from North Africa.
Here are a few suggestions:
The Ardent Swarm – Yamen Manai
Caravan – Dorothy Gilman
Destination Mecca – Idries Shah
Tangerine – Christine Mangan
What is the What – Dave Eggers
The Book of Two Ways – Jodi Picoult
Suggested authors from North Africa included Leila Slimani, Alaa Al-Aswany, Naguin Mahfouz, Mahi Binebine, Basma Abdul Aziz, Waghui Ghali.
SUPER READER – READ HARDER CHALLENGE
Read a book with a title beginning with B or N (or both) and read a book set in or by an author from North Africa.
As usual pick a book from our list, pop along to your local book shop or library, order something online or pick up something that’s already in your TBR pile.
