2018 Read Harder Challenge

Can't believe it's already a new year with new resolutions (lose weight, as always) and a new challenge!  

Like I did for 2017, I will pick the books I will attempt to read for the 2018 challenge.

Again, I will most likely end up picking 2-3 books for each challenge (in case I fail at one of them LOL)

Here are the challenges:
1) A book published posthumously.
2) A book of true crime.
3) A classic of genre fiction (i.e. mystery, sci fi/fantasy, romance).
4) A comic written and illustrated by the same person.
5) A book set in or about one of the five BRICS countries (Brazil, Russia, India, China, or South Africa).
6) A book about nature.
7) A western.
8) A comic written or illustrated by a person of color.
9) A book of colonial or postcolonial literature.
10) A romance novel by or about a person of color.
11) A children’s classic published before 1980.
12) A celebrity memoir.
13) An Oprah Book Club selection.
14) A book of social science.
15) A one-sitting book. (what does this even mean...? aren't all books technically one-sitting as long as you have the time/energy to power through?)
16) The first book in a new-to-you YA or middle grade series.
17) A sci fi novel with a female protagonist by a female author. (this is going to be a long list, I can tell already)
18) A comic that isn’t published by Marvel, DC, or Image.
19) A book of genre fiction in translation.
20) A book with a cover you hate.
21) A mystery by a person of color or LGBTQ+ author.
