Beyond The Bookends’ 2022 Reading Challenge

Novel Ideas 48

The 2022 Reading Challenge is here and we are SO EXCITED to be launched our 5th reading challenge since we started the blog.

Last year’s reading challenge was so popular we knew we needed to do it again. We took your feedback and created an amazing list of prompts for 2022.

The 2023 Reading Challenge is now live!

We think we have the perfect combination of fun and thought-provoking reads. As always, there are so many books in each category, we are sure you can find one that you love.

2022 Reading Challenge by Month

We have actually been thinking about the 2022 reading challenge for a few years. I know that it sounds crazy but, when we come up with ideas, they don’t always work in a given year so we save them to use in future years.

We never want too many of one genre and like to have a mix of heavy and light books. We also did some polls on Instagram to find out what you guys wanted to read.

The final line-up of prompts is below where you can also find a few trackers to mark off your progress. We will update this post with links of book lists at the beginning of each month.
