Royal Reading Challenge 2019


The Royal Reading Challenge is a 2019 reading challenge where you read royal themed books. It is hosted @ She's Got Books On Her Mind.

Gasp! I'm bringing back the Royal Challenge I created back in 2016. I added "reading" into the name which I think looks better. I created my Pick-a-Theme Challenge for 2019 and while I was doing so I started thinking about my other two challenges. I know someone does a challenge like my past Reading Road Trip challenge so I didn't think it would be a good idea to bring that one back but my royal challenge is something I've never seen anyone else do. I love reading stories with princesses or corrupt kingdoms. I know there are a lot of historical stories on real life royalty which could be interesting to read about as well. So why not? 


Read books that have a royal theme.

Examples: Books that center around anyone with a royal title (Prince, Princess, Queen, Duke, etc.), knights, castles, kingdoms, or heroic quests. 

  • You can read any type of books for this challenge. Picture books, graphic novels, manga, and audio books are allowed in this challenge.
  • Re-reads are allowed as long as you don't use the same book twice.
  • You may join whether or not you have a blog. You can join through Goodreads, twitter, or any other appropriate site. 
  • Every month there will be a wrap-up post available. You can add reviews, discussions, and view other readers progresses through that post. If you want you can just comment what you've read as well. 
  • You can use books you've read for other challenges for this challenge. 
  • Knight: 1-3 books
  • Baron or Baroness: 4-6 books
  • Earl or Countess: 7-9 books
  • Duke or Duchess: 10-12 books
  • Prince or Princess: 13- 15 books
  • King or Queen: 15+ books

I've added the link for only a month. If you add your sign up post in the comments I'll add your link afterwards. 




If you have any questions let me know down below. 
Please share this challenge if it's something you like.
Are there any royal reads you would want to read that comes to mind?

  2. Fun idea. I don't know that I've read many "royal" type of books. I like that you can read any type though - picture book, graphic novel, etc.

    1. I usually read princess/fairy tale retellings. I love anything with princesses and castles. I'll probably try to read some manga or graphic novels with princesses. We will see.

  9. I'll probably take part in this as I have Tudor and Plantagenet fiction to get stuck into as well as non fiction on our UK Royal family. I won't be posting my first blog post until the start of January though.
