An Adventurous Reading Challenge

Reading is a way for someone to travel the world without leaving the comfort of their home. Books can showcase different cultures, adventures, and turmoils so you can view the world from a new perspective. After looking at other challenges and not really finding one that I was really liked, I created my own! This challenge is called An Adventurous Reading Challenge! There are 50 different countries and regions listed along with books that you can read that take place within their borders! I will update this page as I cross each book off my list and also post a link to their reviews. There is also a gorgeous graphic that you can print or pin so you can embark on this grand adventure as well!
