2018 Reading Challenge

A common goal I hear is the desire to read more books (it’s always been my goal too!). This year if you’re looking to make a dent in your reading pile and discover new books, consider joining the @PhillyBookClub 2018 Reading Challenge!

The Challenge

Let’s keep things simple and select a theme for each month. Each month read a book that fits the topic below and share what you’re reading by posting a photo on Instagram and using the #PhillyBookClub hashtag! Each month I’ll do a post sharing books for each topic (here on the blog and on Instagram). Keep an eye out for January’s list coming soon!

The Topics

  • January: Memoir (See book suggestions here)
  • February: A book that features a POC main character.
  • March: A book written by a POC woman.
  • April: A book that’s been made into a movie
  • May: Mental Health
  • June: A book that’s been sitting on your shelf.
  • July: Written by a person who identifies as LGBTQIA.
  • August: True Crime
  • September: A book written by an immigrant.
  • October: A book featuring a character with a disability.
  • November: Political Book
  • December: A book published posthumously

Share What You’re Reading!

One of my favorite parts of doing a communal reading challenge is that you get to share and see what others are reading as well! This is a great way for us all to discover new books and expand our reading horizons! To join in on the fun post a photo on Instagram using the #PhillyBookClub hashtag! I can’t wait to spend this new year buried in good books : )


For a visual way to keep track of your progress download this free reading challenge worksheet! Write down the title of the book you selected each month and hang it in a place you pass by daily as a reminder of your reading goal. I’m hanging mine up by my desk.

  • These two bring me so much joy. I was thinking about how much Molly would have loved this hike. Miss my old girl.
  • “True belonging doesn’t require you to change who you are; it requires you to be who you are.

True belonging is the spiritual practice of believing in and belonging to yourself so deeply that you can share your most authentic self with the world and find sacredness in both being a part of something and standing alone in the wilderness.” @brenebrown

  • This year I signed on as a marketing columnist for my local newspaper The Mountain Ear!

My first column came out last week and talks about the beginning steps toward setting up a social media marketing plan for your small business. As a digital-driven millennial, it's fun to see my words in print. 😊
  • Decisions are not isolated events. They point us in the direction we're headed. While I feel like I've made a lot of progress this past year, there are things in my past that are holding me up. I'm making a commitment to let go of that hurt instead of trying to make it better. Saying goodbye was always the right decision. I just wish I'd realized that sooner.
