The 2016 Reading Challenge will continue the concept of this year's challenge, with 52 weekly topics. Users then choose a book fitting each topic in order to complete the challenge.

How it will work:
The topics for the 2016 RC list will be determined through 13 mini-polls. Each user will vote for their favorite 4 topics in each mini-poll, which will then add up to the 52 topics (13 polls x 4 topics/poll=52 weekly topics). Suggestions for each poll will be open for one week (or until 20 suggestions are received) and then opened up for voting.

Rules:
- One suggestion per poll per user
- If you suggested a topic for the 6th mini-poll, please wait 2 days before suggesting a topic for this poll.

Ooh, good one Laura! That may be tough to find!!


my suggestion would have to be....

A "prequel" to a book series i.e. the hobbit came before the lord of the rings

Jenny (pagelady) | 155 comments A book with a redundant phrase in the title (i.e. Crooked Letter, Crooked Letter)

A book with a plant (tree, flower, etc) on the cover.
I already found 3 listopias on Goodreads :D

I like your suggestion Laura, the self-published books I read are often under 100, so I'd have plenty of choices for a category like this :)


message 7: by Ella (new)

Ella | 234 comments A book from the Rory Gilmore challenge.


message 8: by Aline (new)

Aline (thousanduniverses) | 53 comments a book that takes place underwater

Jennifer Barstad (maidenoflight) The 16th book on your to read list.


message 10: by Charity (new)

Charity (faeryrebel78) The first book in a new to you series.

Krishna > this one is already in the 2016 list :)


message 22: by Peter (new)

Peter Going to try this suggestion again and see what happens

A book with an anti-hero as the protagonist.

Again, by anti-hero all I mean is a main character who does not adhere to the normal "hero" archetype. It doesn't mean a villain or bad guy as the main character (although, those would also work).

The Perks of Being a Wallflower was on my mind because a teacher there gives his student a list of books to read even though it's not required. There's a lot to choose from in that one.


message 24: by Silvia (new)

Silvia Turcios | 304 comments To kill a Mockingbird is mentioned a lot in others books, especially in those about high school life


message 25: by Zaz, Mood Minion (new)

Jeanie, I totally forgot to include your suggestion. I have family visiting right now so I'm a little out of it and I posted the survey when I first woke up this morning. So I have to plead temporary insanity. But I can include your suggestion in the next mini-poll and it won't count as your single suggestion for the poll. So essentially you can suggest two themes in the next poll if you want to. I'm sorry!

Thanks, Laura. I'll accept your offer of 2 suggestions please but feel free to veto this, my second one, if necessary.

A book about an obsession

Thanks, Zaz. Missed that one on an earlier poll, clearly!
