The 2023 Romance Book Reading Challenge

Read 12 Books in One Year!

The goal with this reading challenge is to read ONE romance book each month, for a total of 12 romance books for the year.

I always keep things simple with this challenge, but this year I’m keeping it super simple with this year’s reading challenge theme.

We are going to stick with the main categories of the romance genre (with some fun categories too!).

This will let you take each month’s theme in whatever direction you choose and with whatever romance trope you choose.

The goal is always to encourage readers to explore the wide variety within the romance book genre.

But, as always, if you find you don’t care for a particular month’s theme, no problem. Just change it up!

Remember all Your Reading Challenge Favorites

You definitely don’t want to miss out on the free 2023 Reading Challenge Tracker. But, if you’re looking to track even more about your favorite romance book reads this year, then grab yourself a copy of the Romance Book Reading Journal!

Check out the Romance Book Reading Journal - the only journal dedicated to the romance book reader.

The Romance Book Reading Journal is a reading tracker, planner, and journal all in one with over 100 pages in either paperback or hardcover.

I created it exclusively for romance book readers who want to remember everything about their most favorite books.

With pages such as the monthly reading tracker, favorite quotes tracker, book series list, book review form, and pages to track your favorites in over 20 categories and tropes, it has everything you could possibly need and want (plus more!) in a book journal.

Where to Find Books for the Reading Challenge?

To help you pick your monthly selections, check out all of the book lists on the blog. I guarantee you’ll find a great book on one of my lists.

Don’t be shy in using the search bar above to help you get right to what you need.

Plus, by joining my list I’ll email you book recommendations for each month’s challenge as we progress through the year.

Local Library

As far as getting your selection, I’m all about reserving books at my local library to save some cash so my first suggestion is to check your library first and even reserve some titles for the upcoming months ahead of time!

Kindle Unlimited and/or Audible

Another great option is to grab a subscription to Kindle Unlimited or Audible if you’re an audiobook fan.

Kindle Unlimited is FULL of great romance book titles and you can’t beat the price for a monthly membership though I’m always snagging multi-month deals!

Black Friday is a great time to look out for membership deals to either Kindle Unlimited or Audible so you’re set and ready for the challenge in the new year.

Romance Book Subscriptions!

Another option for finding great romance books that I LOVE is a romance book subscription box.

There are so many options depending on your favorite category of romance and budget.

Many send more than one book selection and lots of fun swag too!

Check out my favorite romance book subscription boxes.

Share Your Reading Challenge Selections on Facebook

I not only want you to participate, but I want to know what you’re reading as well.

Follow me on Facebook

Every month there will be a specific post on the She Reads Romance Books Facebook page for Reading Challenge participants to share their book selections for that month’s theme.

Comment on each month’s post with your book selection, engage with other readers, or even link up with a buddy reader!
