Hello, everyone! Happy New Year! Since we are already a few days in 2021, it's time to set the new reading challenge. If you have been following this blog, you already know what my reading challenge is all about. It is a difficult one that is sure to make you read diverse books.

  2. a novel from the Middle East
  3. a novel from East Asia: 
  4. a novel from North America: 
  5. a novel from South America:
  6. a novel from Oceania: 
  7. a novel from Africa:
  8. a novel that won the Man Booker Prize: The Remains of the Day, by Kazuo Ishiguro
  9. a novel that won the Pulitzer Prize:
  10. a novel written by a Nobel Prize recipient: Klara and the Sun, by Kazuo Ishiguro
  11. a play:
  12. a book of poetry: The Princess Saves Herself in This One, by Amanda Lovelace
  13. a collection of short stories: After the Quake, by Haruki Murakami
  14. a manga:
  15. a superhero comic:
  16. a non-superhero comic: The Shadows, Vincent Zabus, Hippolyte
  17. a classic:
  18. a non-fiction book: But is It Art?: An Introduction to Art Theory, by Cynthia Freeland
  19. a memoir/biography: 
  20. a novel that won the Nebula Award:
So, this is it! Even though it is quite demanding, you can use the same book for multiple categories. Let's make 2021 a year full of interesting reads!

Feel free to join me!


  1. That's a really interesting challenge!
    good luck with completing it!


    1. Thank you! It's one that I'm trying to do every year :)

  2. This is ambitious and fun at the same time (see: manga, comic). I don't do challenges of any kind, nor do I set a yearly reading goal for myself, because I want my reading to be the least stressful it can be (and believe me, with the ARCs I request from NetGalley and/or Edelweiss, it already is enough LOL), but I'll check on your progresses! Good luck and happy reading - and of course, happy 2021!

    1. I try to include a bit of everything, because my reading is always sooo diverse lol

  3. Good luck with this challenge! What a fantastic way to expand your reading :)

    1. Thank you! You are well aware that I'm always struggling with this challenge, but this year I will definitely make it!

  4. Happy New Year Konna! Good luck with your challenge :)
