2019 Literary Loners Reading Challenge

Mayor Sonni at Readeroplis is now hosting this challenge which I began at my blog in 2016. 

The overall goal of the reading challenge is to read books connected with loners, outcasts, recluses, wallflowers, and introverts. The challenge will run from January 1 to December 31, 2019. There are no reading levels. You decide how many books to read.

There are three reading options for this challenge. You can choose any or all of them.
  • Read books featuring a character identified as a loner, outcast, recluse, wallflower, or introvert. This can be a main or secondary character.
  • Read works written by writers known to be outcasts, recluses, wallflowers, or introverts.
  • Read books about real people known to be outcasts, recluses, wallflowers, or introverts.

 The new host has also provided a list of suggestions for books at this link.
