2024 Goodreads Lists

Need some help finding books to fit your 2024 challenge? We’ve created a Goodreads List for *almost* every prompt on our 2024 Reading Challenge. These lists are an easy way to gather ideas and see what other 52 Book Club members are reading for each prompt!

In addition, this page will be updated with the release of any 2024 mini-challenges — making it an excellent resource for the entirety of 2024! Feel free to add your book choices and suggestions to any of the lists below!

Note: Anyone is welcome to add suggestions to these lists! Keep in mind that some 52 Book Club members may interpret the prompt differently than you, and that’s okay. Some of us like to be very literal and strict with our interpretations, and some like to be creative and stretch them a bit. Use these lists for helpful suggestions, but note that not every book on the list will fit your personal definition for the prompt.
