The Ultimate 2018 Reading Challenge

They're enough challenges designed to help you read more books in the year however reading isn't just about quantity, it's about quality. For those who want to learn more about the world here’s a reading list that will defiantly broaden your horizons and challenge your beliefs. Warning: this is not for the close-minded or easily daunted.

An original myth translation rather than mytho-fiction
From Percy Jackson to Marvel's Thor, the ancient tales of some cultures are very much alive and adapting. However the originals can be very different from the modern perspective and it's interesting to see the values represented and how they've evolved over time. Warning: they will probably be far more traditional than their modern counterparts. Make sure you find a translation that doesn’t gloss over the gore and horrors of the time.

Something that won three awards since its release
Unlike catchy songs, award winning books are rarely overrated, it must contain something worth absorbing if so many bodies consider it worthy of an award.

A book from the point-of-view of something other than a human
From aliens to animals to death itself, seeing the world through someone else’s perspective can give you insight to the limitations of yours and seeing humans from their eyes can be downright fascinating.

via GIPHY

A book not from a first world country
The bestseller charts and the literary world in general is dominated by white authors and white protagonists. If not, it's about a minority race in a first world country. Try reading something set in a different place with a character you can't even imagine to discover their world.

A book your parent loved when they were your age
If your parents didn't read, ask a friend's parent. It'll give you perspective into generation and life in that time and the fiction that shaped them. It might surprise you to learn how similar or dissimilar your parent and you were around the same age.

A current bestselling children's book
This will be a quick read and a pleasant break from the heavy thought-provoking books advised in this list. Also it gives you great insight into the changing world, after all we were shaped by the books that we read growing up, its nice to see what thoughts are being encouraged in kids these days.

A classic from a genre you haven't explored
Some of us have never tried a Sci-fi while some might have never read a political memoir. Try one of the books known to be a classic in that genre this year, just to see how the trend started. Keep in mind the year of release when reading.


Booklovers what's on your 2018 reading list? Tell us so that we may keep an eye out on them!
