Today, I am sharing the 2017 Literary Loners Reading Challenge hosted by Jamie at the Whatever I Think Of blog: http://jannghi.blogspot.com/2016/10/literary-loners-reading-challenge-2017.html.
I will be reading from both challenge options. The first two books I will be reading for this challenge are KINDRED by Octavia Butler (option 2) and GREAT EXPECTIONS by Charles Dickens (option 1).
What books are you planning to read? [CLICK TO TWEET]
The challenge will run from January 1 to December 31, 2017.
Option 1: read books featuring a character identified as a loner, outcast, recluse, wallflower, or introvert
Option 2: read works written by writers known to have been loners or recluses
OR you can chose to read from both options.
Check out the blog post link above for challenge rules and reading ideas. Jamie has provided some option examples and reading list links on the post.
