I’m not super big on New Year’s resolutions. We’ve all been there. Eat less; exercise more. Spend less; save more. Yada yada yada. But when it comes to books and reading I can always get behind a fresh initiative and some goal-setting.
If you’re like me, you tend to read a lot of the same kinds of books. I tend towards escapist fiction, whether contemporary or historical. I also love a well-plotted mystery, so long as there’s not too much nightmare-inducing gore. But we all know that there’s so much more out there for us to sink our teeth into.
So I got the idea to run a Reading Challenge for 2020 where I will join you in broadening our horizons. Let’s challenge ourselves this year to read from a wider variety of genres.
I have identified 12 different categories of books, one for each month of the year. (Scroll down to see the graphic with my picks!) Join me as we pick up books that are not just women’s fiction (like mine…mark your calendars for May 5th when Hello, Summer hits stores!), but also from the genres of history, self-help, non-fiction, historical fiction, short stories, romance, thriller, mystery, fantasy, science fiction, and young adult.
To make this challenge a little extra fun, I have identified one book in each category that I am adding to my own personal TBR (to be read) pile for 2020. Of course, because I love giving away free stuff, I am offering you all the chance to win each book!
Over the next couple of weeks I will do a post per day on my Instagram feed featuring each category one by one. Each day my followers will have the chance to enter to win not just that book, but also a signed copy of my book, Sunset Beach.
So follow along on Instagram as I feature a wide variety of books day-by-day over the next couple weeks. Join the conversation each day and maybe you’ll be one of the lucky 12 winners!
