2019 Reading Challenge - The Award Winner Challenge

It's that time of year again! The reading challenges are being set for the year ahead, and one of my favourites to join in with is run by the lovely Paul over at The Book Vipers over at GoodReads, who always sets amazing challenges to get you reading a wide variety of books over the next 12 months.

And 2019 is a corker!  The challenge this year is to read books that have won the  book prizes and made the short and longlists over the years.  You can choose to read from 1 to 21 of the categories below - it's up to you!!

So my head is already hurting trying to work out which books to pick for each topic.  I've made a preliminary list of books I already have that will fit with topics, alongside ones I plan to get from the library, although I am sure my list may change over the year! And I'm still struggling for a few topics so if you have any recommendations that you think I need to read then please let me know as I'd love to hear them!!  I need help!!!!
