Out of Your Comfort Zone Reading Challenge 2021

OutOfComfortZone Reading Challenge 2021

What is the Out of Your Comfort Zone Reading Challenge? 💗

The aim of this challenge is to read books that you consider to be outside of your comfort zone. The Challenge itself is tailored to your goals, so it’s going to be really relaxed and individual as everyone has a different definition of their comfort zone. You can set yourself a number of books to read in a particular genre (or subgenre, age range, etc.) or make a TBR with books you hope to get to!
