A while back, I posted about the 2019 POPSUGAR Reading Challenge and included a list of how far I’d gotten at that point. (I had completed 18 of the prompts.) The entire list of 40 (or 50) prompts can be found here.
I am just doing this for fun. I don’t actually care if I finish it, other than as a random tick-box of accomplishments. This isn’t anything I had signed myself up for early enough for it to be on my list of 2019 goals.
At this point I have completed 41 of the 50 prompts.
41 is too many to list here. I would get bored writing them, and you would get bored reading them. Instead, here’s a list of the prompts I have not done yet, with books I have either started, decided upon, or considered possibly reading for that prompt. If you’re interested in seeing how far I’ve gotten, my list is here on Goodreads and (for those of you not on Goodreads) here on my blog.
|1. A book becoming a movie in 2019||Good Omens by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman?|
|7. A reread of a favorite book||The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien?|
|14. A book you see someone reading on TV or in a movie||The Princess Bride by William Goldman|
|23. A book set in Scandinavia|
|24. A book that takes place in a single day||The 7 1/2 Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle by Stuart Turton?|
|29. A book with LOVE in the title|
|44. Read a book during the season it is set in|
|(The)/Invisible Man by H.G. Wells & Ralph Ellison||yes|
|50. A book set in an abbey, cloister, monastery, vicarage, or convent||The Name of the Rose by Umberto Eco||yes|
Fortunately, this is still fun! Looking at a few of those prompts, I’m not sure they’ll all be as fun. Some of them are a bit hard for me to come up with a book that would count which I actually want to read.
I’ve read Wells’ The Invisible Man at this point, but not Ellison’s Invisible Man. And okay, I cheated, Good Omens was made into a TV show not a movie, but I’m counting it anyway. Unless I change my mind and decide to read something else instead.
Do you have any books that fit the categories I have left? Any recommendations?
