Wild and wacky prompts abound! This challenge is a great way to attempt to diversify your reading through the different (and some, wildly specific) prompts offered! 

Challenge prompts

1. Read a book with red letters on the title (56 books added)


Note: It can’t just be a book with a red cover, it must have a red title!

2. Read a book with a person on the cover (81 books added)


Yes, I know they can be ugly, but don’t judge a book by it’s cover! It doesn’t have to be a face, it can be something like hands or feet or any other body part, it just has to clearly belong to a person! 

3. Read a book that is commonly challenged/banned (35 books added)

Here’s a master list of 100, according to the American Library Association. You can read any book on this list, whether it be Capitan Underpants or To Kill a Mockingbird. Sometimes these are classics for a reason! Don’t be afraid to dive in to a controversial choice! 

Note: Make sure to look up TW before reading books off this list!  

4. Read a book that takes place in another country. (68 books added)


Do you want to travel but don’t have the money/means to do so? Well look no further than a book set in another country. It doesn’t matter which country it takes place in, just as long as it’s not your country. 

5. Read a book from one of your least read genres (41 books added)


Look on your reading profile and find your least read genres and pick one to read a book from. You never know if you like it until you try it!

6. Read a book that isn’t in your comfort zone (45 books added)


Look at the typical length, emotions and genres you usually read and find something completely different.

Example: 
You typically read books considered emotional, mysterious, and adventurous, your favorite genre is fantasy, and your average length is 500+ pages, read something completely different, like a lighthearted romance novel between 300-499.

7. Read a book with the word “book” in the title (23 books added)


Books about books… need I say more?

8. Read a book you’re terrified of. (30 books added)


It can be a long book, it can be a classic, it can be a translated work, it can be a book you know will completely destroy you, just conquer your fear and read it!

9. Read a book you think you’ll hate (43 books added)


Some of the best books I’ve ever read are ones that I thought I wouldn’t really enjoy. So pick out a book you think you won’t enjoy or maybe not as much as you hoped and read it!

10. Read a book written in multiple perspectives! (53 books added)


Multiple POV books are really fun to read. You can hear the story from several different perspectives from different characters.
