Book Riot 2015 Read Harder Challenge

I recently came across the Book Riot 2015 Read Harder Challenge & even though it is the middle of July I've decided that I want to give it a try! I think it will be a great way to motivate myself to read books that aren't the norm for me. I'm excited to explore some different genres/authors. I'd love to have others join with me, so comment on this post if you plan on trying it & share some of the books you've read! You can also join the Goodreads Group here!

Below is the list of categories for this challenge. I will be posting the book I've read (along with my review link) next to each category once I've finished it. I will not be adding any previous books I've read this year, these will all be books that I've read after my start date (July 18th).

A book written by someone when they were under the age of 25
A book written by someone when they were over the age of 65
A collection of short stories (either by one person or an anthology by many people)
A book published by an indie press
A book by or about someone that identifies as LGBTQ
A book by a person whose gender is different from your own
A book that takes place in Asia
A book by an author from Africa
A book that is by or about someone from an indigenous culture (Native Americans, Aboriginals, etc.)
A microhistory
A YA novel
A sci-fi novel
A romance novel
A National Book Award, Man Booker Prize or Pulitzer Prize winner from the last decade
A book that is a retelling of a classic story (fairytale, Shakespearian play, classic novel, etc.)
An audiobook
A collection of poetry
A book that someone else has recommended to you
A book that was originally published in another language
A graphic novel, a graphic memoir or a collection of comics of any kind (Hi, have you met Panels?)
A book that you would consider a guilty pleasure (Read, and then realize that good entertainment is nothing to feel guilty over)
A book published before 1850
A book published this year
A self-improvement book (can be traditionally or non-traditionally considered “self-improvement”)
