Wicked Good Reads

Hosted by Girlxoxo.com (tanyajpatrice and chapteradventure on instagram), they start reading through the prompts in September on their Wicked Good Reads bingo card and then do a posting event all October long. Share what you read on your blog or Instagram or just join in the discussion with other book lovers. Use the hashtag #WickedGoodReads on Instagram to see what they and others share.

I love book bingo cards, it’s a fun reading challenge and a creative way to motivate yourself to read more.

I’ll be doing this one, so you can see my goal, progress and what I’m reading on my 2022 reading challenges page.

RIP Reading Challenge

Hosted by Readers Imbibing Peril (R.I.P.), this is an annual readathon or fall reading challenge. This year’s RIP Reading challenge runs from 9/1/22-10/31/22. This is the 17th year and I have joined in on and off since probably 2013. The goal is to read books from the creepy genres like mystery, gothic, supernatural, thriller, and horror.

Fall Travel the World in Books Reading Challenge

Is there ever not a good time to travel the world in books? This is the reading challenge I host as I love to encourage people to learn about other cultures and countries. My Travel the World in Books Reading Challenge is flexible…you choose your own adventure…how many countries and cultures you want to read about, how long you have to complete your goal and how you want to share those great books!

Though this is a fun reading challenge to do any time of the year, here are some fun places to visit in the fall through books….

Books Set in Beautiful Fall Landscapes

Here are some books to travel for beautiful fall scenery. These are either recommendations of books I’ve read or want to read.

  • Fall foliage in the Appalachian Mountains -Sarah Addison Allen writes some fantastic fall and foodie books set in the NC mountains. My favorite is First Frost.
  • Prince Edward Island, Canada – Anne of Green Gables (I’ve never read it!)
  • Hawaii – Diamond Head
  • Scotland – Outlander
  • Germany – Abby’s Journey
  • Austria
  • Norway – experience the Northern Lights! – The Storm Sister has a stunning cover!
  • Switzerland
  • Alps
  • Loire Valley France
  • Ireland – In the Woods would be perfectly creepy for fall

Books Set in Tropical Locations

Try one of these books set on an island or books set in Greece, I’m always ready for a hurricane free tropical adventure in books 🙂

Supernatural books worth reading from around the world

Death, ghosts, vampires, witches, oh my!

Books set in the Southern Hemisphere

It intrigues me how the seasons are opposite in the Southern and Northern Hemispheres of the Earth. If you’re tired of fall in the Northern Hemisphere, you can always head to the Southern Hemisphere in books where it’s spring! Here are a few I’ve read/want to read to get you started.
