Hi guys! So for this year I will be partaking in the unread shelf project of 2019! The whole point of this challenge is to read books on your shelves that you haven’t read yet. For each month there is a prompt for the unread book you will read for that month. This is hosted by Whitney(theunreadshelf) so make sure to check her out!
So first I had to count all the unread books on my shelves and that number is *cue drumroll* 77 unread books out of 290. This actually isn’t as bad as I thought, I thought I had like 100 to be honest. Anyways, I’m hoping to knock this number down during this challenge! So without further ado, I shall give the prompts and the books I’m planning to read for those prompts.
January: any unread book. For this I am reading Poison’s Kiss by Breeana Shields
February: a book gifted to you. I will be reading The Lady of the Rivers by Philippa Gregory which was gifted to me by my grandma.
March: a book that’s been on your shelf the longest. For this I am doing The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas. Though I am currently reading this, I do not project me finishing it before March so I am going to count it, if I do end up finishing it though, well, then this book will change
April: the book you most recently required. For this I will be reading Silent Murders by Mary Miley. (This book is subject to change)
May: a book you bought because of the movie/TV/theater adaptation. I will be reading Every Day by David Levithan
June: a book about travel or set in a country you’ve never been to. I will be reading Sekret by Lindsay Smith. This takes place in Russia and I have never been there though maybe one day
July: a book from a series on your shelf. I will be reading Isla and the Happily Ever After by Stephanie Perkins. This is the last book in the Anna and the French Kiss trilogy
August: a book voted for you to read by Bookstagram. As of right now I do not have this book picked out but when I do I shall add it
September: a book you can buddy read with someone. I will be reading A Very Large Expanse of Sea by Tahereh Mafi
October: a book that scares you, whether because of length, content, or actual horror level. For this I think I am going to read The Night Bird by Brian Freeman because this seems like a spooky read
November: a book from your favorite genre. My favorite genre is historical fiction so I am going to be reading Orphan Monster Spy by Matt Killeen
December: the shortest book on your shelves. The shortest book on my shelves I’ve already read so I’m going to go with a close maybe 5th one which is Peril at End House by Agatha Christie which has 191 pages in all
So there you have it, all the books I will be reading for the Unread Shelf Project. I am excited to be taking part in this and can’t wait to read all these books I’ve been meaning to read, for a long time!
