The 52 Book Club Reading Challenge

Shutterstock 397015858

I mentioned in a previous post that I was doing the 2022 PopSugar reading challenge, one that I typically do every year. While I was impatiently waiting for the prompt list to be released, I came across another similar challenge entitled “The 52 Book Club Reading Challenge.” This one has 52 prompts and like PopSugar, runs from January 1 to December 31st; that is to say, you read 52 books in 52 weeks. I found a few books that meet both the PopSugar and the 52 Book Club challenges but I’m mostly going to try to read unique books for each challenge. I tend to read about 140 books a year so I should be able to pull it off (though I do read a lot of ARCs and New Releases).

There is also a Goodreads Group for the challenge so you can find ideas for books to fit the prompts as well as discuss books and share your progress with others. There is also a Facebook Group as well, if that’s your bag.

I’ll post the prompts below and if you like what you see, then feel free to join in on the fun!
