The 2019 Reading Challenge is here with 12 new book reading challenges. Every month is a different genre of book that we love to read already! Each month we will be releasing a list of books we recommend that correspond with the challenge. We will also be listing the books in each category that we hope to tackle for the month. Looking to get a head start? Let’s chat about January, shall we?

January Reading Challenge Preview
We both have done a lot of reading from celebrity book clubs in this past year. Reese Witherspoon’s Book Club included some of our favorite picks of 2018. Last year in Havanna by Chanel Cleeton and Where the Crawdad’s Sing by Dehlia Owens are selections of hers which made our top 20 books of the year list. With that in mind, we decided to start the challenge in January by reading a book from a celebrity book club. If you haven’t read either of those books, start there, otherwise look for a full list in January.
There are so many other months that I’m so excited about as well. With open-ended categories, I’m finding that some books on my list fit more than one month. The Case For Jamie by Brittany Cavallaro is a Sherlock retelling and a book from a series that I already started. Decisions, Decisions…..whatever is a girl to do?
