2018 Reading Challenge!

After finally having a successful year of book reading after having children - I decided to try the Modern Mrs. Darcy Reading Challenge for 2018. My thoughts are I'd like to chip away at my TBR list. So my choices for the Reading Challenges will mostly be from my TBR list, not something new.

I normally have 3 books going at once. One "real" book, one audio and one kindle. So at least one of those will be from this list at all times. Here are my choices:


A Classic You've Been Meaning to Read: Little Women - Louisa May Alcott
A Book Recommended by Someone With Great Taste: The Graveyard Book - Neil Gaiman
A Book in Translation:  Shadow of the Wind - Carlos Ruiz Zafón
A Book Nominated for an Award in 2018: TBA
A Book of Poetry, Play, or an Essay Collection: Ariel - Sylvia Plath
A Book You Can Read in A Day: House on Mango Street - Sandra Cisneros
A Book that is More Than 500 Pages: Beneath A Scarlett Sky - Mark T. Sullivan
A Book By My Favorite Author: After Alice - Gregory Maguire
A Book Recommended by a Librarian or Indie Bookseller: If The Creek Don't Rise - Leah Weiss
A Banned Book: The Handmaid's Tale - Margaret Atwood
A Memoir, Biography or Book of Creative Nonfiction: Escape - Carolyn Jessup
A Book By an Author of a Different Race, Ethnicity or Religion Than Your Own: Between the World and Me - Ta-Nehisi Coates

Do you like to plan out your reading for the year? Or just read what you feel like? Having any book recommendations? I'd love to hear them too!
