Ready to diversify your reading this year? Join the best Reading Challenge of 2024 and read a book a week with the Booklist Queen!
Want to up your reading game in 2024? Then I have the ultimate goal for you – The Booklist Queen 2024 Reading Challenge.
Join thousands of others as we read a book a week in 2024. That’s right, this 2024 Reading Challenge has 52 different categories to expand your reading selection.
When I originally launched the reading challenge a few years ago, I worried I would be the only one crazy enough to want to do a 52 book challenge. Oh, I was so wrong.
Since then, I’ve been joined by thousands of readers who are just as crazy as me.
If you feel overwhelmed by 52 categories, don’t worry. It’s okay if you don’t finish the challenge. I want this Reading Challenge for 2024 to be aspirational. I want to push you to read more – whether that’s 12 books a year or 52. I want you to get out of your reading rut and try new genres.
Don’t like one of the categories in the 2024 Reading Challenge? Change it or skip it. Double count a book for multiple prompts. Interpret the prompts any way you like. Do what you want to make this reading challenge your own.
As long as you’re happy, I’m happy.

Printable Reading Challenge
While the bookmark is great for Pinterest, it’s way too small to write your book selections on. I would know because I’ve witnessed my husband try it.
That’s why, exclusively for my newsletter subscribers, I’ve created an awesome printable handout for the 2024 Reading Challenge that has space for all your book selections.
Not a subscriber yet? Just enter your email below to join the weekly newsletter. You’ll stay up to date on the reading challenge, my blog posts, and receive exclusive content just for you. Every week I highlight one of the reading challenge’s prompts with book suggestions just for my favorite readers.
Social Media Templates
Want to share your progress on social media with amazing graphics?
Newsletter subscribers also get access to a collection of social media templates through Canva. Canva is a free online graphic design program that is extremely easy to use. I pay for a pro account for my blog, but most people will be perfectly happy with the free version.
Whether you want the full checklists, monthly challenges, single book reviews, or to share your monthly wrap-up, I’ve got you covered with easy-to-use templates. Just throw in your book covers and share them on your social media accounts.
If the full 2024 Reading Challenge feels like too much, you can break it down into monthly segments. Feel free to do the Reading Challenge in order or skip around. If 52 books are too many, just try one of these monthly challenges and do it instead. That’s only 4 or 5 books to read in a year.
Need a little more challenge than that but not ready for the full Reading Challenge 2024? Just pick one category from each month for a 12 book challenge.
Personalize my 2024 Reading Challenge as much as you want. The goal is for you to read more and to have fun doing it!
