So remember when I said I wasn’t doing any reading challenges (other than Goodreads) in 2016? Well, I lied. Because I can’t resist this one! It’s the Reading New England Challenge created by The Emerald City Book Review. I fell in love with New England when I went off to Boston for college. It’s seriously one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been to! And since I’m currently stuck in California, I thought this would be a really fun challenge. Plus, I have a ton of books on my TBR that are set in/inspired by New England. Fun fact: my apartment in Boston was in the same neighborhood as the former homes of Louisa May Alcott, Robert Frost, Henry James, Michael Crichton, Sylvia Plath, Henry David Thoreau, Anne Sexton, and Nathaniel Hawthorne.
You can check out my challenge page here (or using the link in the menu bar). I’m tentatively planning out which books I’d like to read, and I will start updating as soon as the challenge begins in January.
Let me know if you’re planning to participate, too – I’d love to see what’s on your reading list!
