This challenge lasts for 1 year from the date you start



You ever wondered what everyone else is reading in a certain genre? Are you in a funk and just need some suggestions? Or have read through all your TBR and you are looking for your next favorite book?

In this Challenge Theme, we will take a random week and list all the most read books that week in Goodreads for various genres.

Explore the different books your fellow Goodreaders are reading to find your next book.
