2020 Read Harder Challenge

Hosted By: Book Riot
My Goal: 12 of 24 Tasks
Challenge Progress: 5/12 Tasks

Books Read

 1. Read a book about a natural disaster: The Silent Land by Graham Joyce (about a couple who get caught in an avalanche)
2. Read a book that takes place in a rural setting: The Turn of the Key by Ruth Ware (takes place at a house in the middle of nowhere in Scotland)
3. Read a retelling of a classic of the canon, fairytale, or myth by an author of color: Pride by Ibi Zoboi (Retelling of Pride & Prejudice, by an author of color, and all the main characters are people of color as well) (I don’t understand what they mean here by a “canon story” because canon just means anything that is officially part of the story, but I’m counting this one because it’s a retelling of a classic written by an author of color.)
4. Read a doorstopper (over 500 pages) published after 1950, written by a woman: Empire of Storms by Sarah J. Maas (704 pages, published in 2016)
5. Read a picture book with a human main character from a marginalized community: Octopus Stew by Eric Velasquez (The main characters are Black and Latinx. I read a lot of picture books to my son, but I do not list picture books in my main reading challenges, but I will list this one here, since this challenge specifically states to read a picture book.)
