About the 2019 #WotNReadingChallenge:


Well, here we are again. This is the second annual #WotNReadingChallenge. Since this series didn’t kill me last year, I figured I might as well give it another chance. In 2019, we are shaking things up a little bit. All of the prompts are brand new, and they’re a little less graphic-novel focused. In fact, there aren’t any prompts that tell you to pick a particular format of book. Feel free to try graphic novels, audiobooks, ebooks, or plain old print books. No one is going to yell at you, just so long as you’re reading. If you decide that some of the prompts are silly, that’s fine too. Make your own fun.

Without further ado, here are next year’s prompts for the 2019 #WotNReadingChallenge:

The 2019 #WotNReadingChallenge:

January: A book adapted from another medium

February: A book under 300 pages

March: A book that features the undead

April: A book about the climate

May: A pop culture history

June: A book with an amazing title

July: A YA novel from the last 5 years

August: A book that won a major SFF award

September: A book in translation

October: A book of genre fiction by a person of color

November: A book by/about a presidential candidate

December: A SFF book of short stories

The prompts are set up by month to let you know when Word of the Nerd (read: still me) is going to have suggestion posts up on the site. Feel free to read the prompts in any order. As stated above, challenges are for you, not me. There will be no grade at the end, nor will there be a test.
