2023 Read Your Bookshelf Challenge


This is one more that I feel I can actually accomplish, lol! Details are below:


This year each of the prompts are going to play off of the book you chose for the previous prompt which is a lot of fun!

If any of the prompts need more explaining, watch the video, hopefully that will help clear things up.

Also, you can head to this page to share which books you’re reading for each month!


We’re kicking things off by reading a book that starts with the word “a” or “the”. This should give you lots of options and be a good place to start for the year.

Great Audible Deals!


In February the prompt is to read a book where the cover or spine is in a complementary color from your January book. There is a cool complementary color generator here you can use.


For the next prompt the title has to start with the next letter in the alphabet from your February book. So if your book in February started with the letter C your March book will have to start with the letter D. (If your February book happened to start with Z just start back with A for March.)


April is pretty simple, just read a book that is in a different genre than your March book.


This month we will just be reading a book that is longer than our last one. One of my goals for 2023 is going to be to read some bigger books and this will help me for that I think.


The title for your June book will have half as many letters as your May title.


This book needs to be set in a different country or world than your June book.


If you watched my video I originally skipped August somehow. Well, I’m pretty sure I know how, I was prepping for this video while we were babysitting our former foster kids and they were sick with fevers and I was running on little sleep and then I filmed it in the morning they went home so I was exhausted. Anyway, I had to slide something in for August so I decided to keep it simple and we’re just going to read a book that is the same genre as our July book.


In September we are going to be turning to page 50 in our August book (or 49 or 51 if your page 50 is blank) and our September book has to have one of the words from that page in the title.

Old Favorites Made Modern - a modern Anne of Green Gables


For October the title of our book will start with the first letter of the author’s last name from our September book.


Choose a book from a different time period from your October book.


And for the last month your book has to be within 20 pages of your November book (so if your book had 300 pages your December book will need to be between 280 and 320 pages).

  1. This sounds like a great challenge! Having the opportunity to read more books is a great way to expand your knowledge and develop new skills. I'm excited to take part in this challenge and look forward to seeing what books I can find!
