Reading Challenge 2023

As we bid farewell to 2022, it’s time to plan our 2023 reading challenges. I’m setting myself a target of 40 new books to read on Goodreads in addition to the 11 individual challenges below. I also want to read all the unread books currently gathering dust on my bookshelves (about 35 in total). Do you have any reading challenges planned for 2023?

  1. A book documenting a non-human perspective 
  2. A book with a name in the title
  3. A modern re-telling of a classic
  4. A book published in 2023
  5. A book about someone taking a trip or a holiday
  6. A book with a title beginning with the first letter of your given name
  7. A book whose main character loves to read
  8. A book that takes place in at least two different decades
  9. A book with more than one author
  10. A book with the name of a town or city in the title
  11. A piece of Brontë-inspired fiction

In Loving Memory of Bob the Bichon (2007-2019)

A lover of life, the Brontës, and Haworth who knows that I’m just going to write because I can’t help it.

  1. Glad to have found your blog and coincidentally one of my goals for 2023 is to read and in some cases reread all 7 of the Bronte novels. I am particularly interested in rereading Wuthering Heights which I read many years ago and it’s a brilliant book. I knew that as I was reading it but it went over my head a bit. So I am thinking a second reading will help me see things I didn’t see the first time.

  2. Oh, I like these prompts for reading in 2023! I may borrow them, I think…

    My plans? To let certain memes and events help plan my choices but not to let them disappoint if I don’t get to complete them! Hopefully there’ll be a range of genres and a smattering of new publications, plus a couple of events I always commit to. And there’ll be those missing Brontë titles to dig out, hopefully! Happy New Year to you. 🙂

  3. I completed my goal of reading at least 30 books this year. In 2023, I’m going to try and read 40. Sadly, I only read one Bronte book so I’ll read at least five in 2023. More Brontes in 2023 for me.

  4. A month late but I love your goals, especially the ‘book that takes place in at least two different decades’. That one sounds like a real challenge! I have a few goals but my main ones are read more off my shelves and finish some series!
