Most of these prompts reflect uncompleted prompts from my 2018 Personal Reading and Abandoned Book Rescue challenges and various other challenges I foolishly took on. Some of them are clearly summer-themed (if you tried the Goodreads summer reading challenge, you may recognize many of them), but I'm not making them summer-specific for the challenge. The asterisk indicates that I've failed it at least two years in a row. I must complete those (and three Alphabet Soup letters) before I can count any other books as completed. (You are perfectly welcome to ignore this self-flagellation.)

A few of these prompts are ones I created based on books I read that didn't fit any of my 2018 challenges.

* A book that scares you
* A book set in a hotel
A book translated from its original language
A book that unleashes your creativity
A book that features summer recipes or outdoor summer activities
A book that takes place on the water
A book that features fishing or fishermen
A book that features a popular summer sport
A book that puts a spin on a well-known fairy tale
A classic or contemporary Western
A book from the bottom of your TBR pile
A book that's been sitting on your Goodreads shelves for a while
A Choose-Your-Own Adventure novel
A book about the end of the world as we know it
A book you were forced to read in school
A book you were supposed to read in school but didn't
A book that features letters or journal entries
A book about your country's independence
A book that has the words red, white, or blue in the title
A book that takes place in outer space
A book that takes place at a nudist colony or features nudists
A book that takes place on an island or in which the characters find themselves stranded
A book that you picked up at a library sale or thrift store
A book that you bought while on vacation
A book by an author of color
A book that is becoming a movie this year
A book published posthumously
A book of colonial or postcolonial literature
A book of social science
An assigned book you hated (or never finished)
An anthology of poetry

I will be posting threads for the individual prompts over the next few days.

This is an informal challenge, so signing up with a goal and a shelf is completely optional. If you want to shelve your reads for this challenge on the same shelf as I'm using, it's stina-challenge-2019.

Have fun!
