2024 Reading Challenge Sign Ups

It's a new year and a fresh start for annual challenges and I'm signing up for two reading challenges this year.

Non Fiction Reading Challenge 2024

First up is the Non Fiction Reading Challenge hosted by fellow Aussie book blogger Shelleyrae at Book'd Out, but I'll be increasing the difficulty level this year.

Instead of committing to read 6 books from any 6 categories, I'm tackling the highest level of the challenge to complete the Nonfiction Nosher level. For this, I will need to read and review 12 books, one book for each category in the list below.

Here are the categories:
True Crime
The Future
Published in 2024

Some of these are going to be hard, so if you have any suggestions I'm happily accepting recommendations. In the meantime I have plans to read The Pulling by Adele Dumont for the biography/memoir or health challenge prompt.

You can join in too! Social media tags: #ReadNonFicChal @bookdout (Twitter) @shelleyrae_bookdout (Instagram).

Historical Fiction Reading Challenge 2024

Hosted by Marg at The Intrepid Reader, today I'm signing up to complete the Medieval Reader level of the challenge, one level higher than previous years.

Last year I aimed to read 10 books but this year I'll need to read and review 15 historical fiction books in order to successfully complete the challenge.

So far, I'm planning to read The Bee and the Orange Tree by Melissa Ashley and The Tea Girl of Hummingbird Lane by Lisa See.


Are you challenging yourself in 2024? Do you plan to borrow more books from the library, read more or less about a certain topic or spend more time reading? I'd love to know and feel free to track my progress through the year over on the Challenges 2024 page.

  1. I'm going to try the nonfiction reader challenge again, I haven't managed to read my 3 three books in past years, but I'm trying again. I'm going to read Larrimah by Caroline Graham & Kylie Stevenson as my True Crime read.

    1. So glad you'll be joining the Non Fiction Reading Challenge again Claire, your choice sounds perfect for the challenge. I enjoyed watching the Last Stop Larrimah documentary last year, such a fascinating case, isn't it? Good luck with the challenge!

  2. Excellent! I look forward to seeing what you choose to read this year!

    1. Thanks Shelleyrae, I'm hoping to discover a few new favourite non fiction reads this year!

  3. I’m doing the non fiction challenge again and Read Around the World where you read authors from different countries. So far I’ve read a Nigerian author, currently reading a Belgian author and have an Indian author lined up. I’ve read The Art Thief for the true crime prompt in the non fiction challenge l

    1. Hi Diana, I think Andrea has done the Read Around the World challenge in the past, not sure if she's doing it this year though. It'll be fun to do the non fiction challenge together again and well done for getting in early with your first challenge prompt completed!
