2024 Romance Book Reading Challenge with She Reads Romance Books

Join me for the 2024 She Reads Romance Books Reading Challenge – THE reading challenge devoted exclusively to the romance genre where we read romance all year long!

This is the fifth year of the challenge, but the underlying premise stays the same – read ONE romance book a month while having fun and exploring the genre.

That’s it! But of course, I have a few things up my sleeve to make this year’s challenge even more fun and exciting so read on to find out more.

The 2024 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.

For this year’s challenge, I’m presenting two options for each month to guide your selections. Each month has a specific romance category as well as a fun reading challenge. Use either (or both!) to pick your book of the month.

2024 Romance Book Reading Challenge Themes

JANUARY– Dark Romance / 2023 Title You Didn’t Get to Read Yet

FEBRUARY– Spicy Romance / Romance Novella

MARCH– Contemporary Romance / New Author to You

APRIL– New Adult Romance / Read a New or Favorite Trope

MAY– Romantic Suspense / Read a BIPOC Author

JUNE– Sports Romance / Choose a Book by its Cover

JULY– Summer Romance / Listen to an Audiobook

AUGUST– Romantic Comedy / Read a Book That Inspires Travel

SEPTEMBER– Historical Romance / Read a Book Made into a Movie or TV Series

OCTOBER– Fantasy or Paranormal Romance / Read an Indie Author

NOVEMBER– Young Adult Romance / Reread a Favorite Book

December – Holiday Romance / Pick a Social Media Recommendation

BONUS Challenges!

This year I’m also including two BONUS Challenges which you can do instead of the main challenge or in addition to it. These additional challenges will help you dive even deeper into the romance genre by exploring popular romance book tropes and micro-tropes.

Each bonus challenge has 12 new prompts to help you select a book. They aren’t listed by month so you can pick and choose to read them whenever you want in whatever month you choose.
