For Reading Addicts 2018 Reading Challenge

By December 10, 2017Cwts Club Book Club

A New Year, A New Challenge

OK, Reading Addicts, in 2017 we’ve travelled around the world and hopefully, if you’ve joined in, you’ve read some new authors and maybe revisited some old favourites.

For 2018 we decided to do something different and asked you to vote for your favourite categories for this year’s challenge.

The results of the top 12 look like this

A biography or a memoir
A book of short stories
A novel set during a war
A dystopian or speculative fiction novel
A play
A poetry collection
A mystery or thriller
A children’s or YA book
An epistolary novel
A gothic novel
A story with an unreliable narrator
A book nominated for an award in 2018

There are no rules how you should complete this challenge, we will post suggested reading lists for each category and in the discussion group I’m sure people will share their own suggestions too. If you want to download a printable version to tick off you can do that here (pdf).

Happy reading, get over to Cwts Club Discussion Group to see how everyone plans to tackle the challenge.

This year’s reading challenge is a bit different and as promised each month we’ll give you a list of suggested books for each category.

This year’s reading challenge is a bit different and as promised each month we’ll give you a list of suggested books for each category. For March I asked the Cwts Discussion Group to recommend “A Novel Set During A War”. The response was once again completely overwhelming, these are just a few of the many that didn’t already feature in one of the many lists we already have over on FRA. I’ve included links to the other lists at the end. Read More

The 9 Circles of Book Club Hell

Anyone who has participated in a book club with their friends and neighbours will know there are certain aspects of it that are less than lovely. Sometimes all we want to do is read a book together and discuss the plot and character development… Sometimes other people have other ideas.

Let us know on Facebook or Twitter if you have any other book club annoyances that we have left out…
