The 2019 Reading Challenges are here!  Are you struggling with what to read in the Choose-Your-Own-Adventure Reading 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 where a character goes on a spiritual journey.”


Books about spiritual journeys don’t have to be unequivocally religious or Christian, but they can be. They may involve a visit to a holy site or a special revelation about one’s spiritual beliefs. Below are several fiction and non-fiction books in the APL collection that feature characters who go on a spiritual journey.
