The 52 Book Club’s 2022 Reading Challenge:

Ready to challenge your reading? To try new authors or genres you haven’t read before? To push yourself to read at least a book a week, all the while having a ton of fun? Then you’re in the right place. Our fifth annual reading challenge is here, and we at The 52 Book Club couldn’t be more excited to share these brand new prompts with you all. So, let’s get started!

What is the challenge?

52 Books in 52 Weeks is an annual challenge made up of 52 unique prompts. Match one book to each prompt for a total of 52 books throughout the year. The goal is to try new authors or genres, push ourselves to read more, read differently, and most importantly… to have fun!

How does it work?

  1. Follow The 52 Book Club on social media. You can find us on Facebook, Goodreads, and Instagram.
  2. Using the list below, match one book to each of the 52 prompts. (52 books total.) Get as creative as you like with interpreting the prompts!
  3. When January 1, 2022 rolls around, start reading!
  4. Once you’ve finished one of the prompts, check it off the list and share your read! The Facebook group is our most popular spot for posting your recent 52 Book Club reads. When sharing on other social media sites like Instagram or Twitter, don’t forget to use the hashtag #the52bookclub2022 and #the52bookclub. This helps us find everyone!
  5. How often you share is up to you! You can share after every read, share all of your reads at the end of the month, or even just at the end of the year! Some participants chose to track their reads privately and simply follow along in the groups to find amazing recommendations. How you decide to participate is up to you. We’re just glad you’re here!
