When I started book blogging, i was doing tons of reading challenges, up to about 12. Then less and less. I was considering doing only the Classics Club for 2019, but then, I discovered another one I could NOT resist.
So here are my
2019 Reading Challenges
Click on the icons to know more about them.
I will also be doing some readalongs:
- Don Quixote, with One Catholic Life and Silvia Cachia
- Berlin Alexanderplatz, by Alfred Doblin, with NYRB Classics Goodreads Group – DNFed
- Les Misérables – this is a re-read, in French again, with one of my French students

LAST EDIT on 12/30/2019:
I read 32 mysteries in 2019, and most of them are crime fiction [see here], but I’m not going to waste my time trying to fit the titles with the chart for this challenge. It contains categories like the author’s birth month. I have no idea, and for me, it’s totally irrelevant. I should have paid more attention before launching into this challenge.
