The 2019 Reading Challenges are here! Are you struggling with what to read in the Choose-Your-Own-Adventure Challenge categories? We can help! Throughout the year, we will highlight several juvenile, YA, and adult fiction (or non-fiction) books in most of the categories.
These aren’t the only books we have available in each category but are ideas that can help you spark inspiration, help clarify the category, and (hopefully) make your decision easier!
We’re continuing our discussion of books with the category “A book set in a country you’ve never been.”
We’re traveling the world through books from Mexico to Antarctica to Ghana.
Where will you go?
Ghana: Homegoing by Yaa Gyasi
Egypt: Cleopatra: A Life by Stacy Schiff (This book can also be counted for the category “A nonfiction book about history before 1500)
Laos and Thailand: The Latehomecomer: a Hmong Family Memoir by Kao Kalia Yang
Antarctica: The Comet Seekers by Helen Sedgwick
Australia: The Dry by Jane Harper
Guernsey (an island off the coast of Normandy in the English Channel, a UK Crown dependency): The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows
Columbia: Reputations by Juan Gabriel Vásquez
