Bungo Stray Dogs Reading Challenge

 

Bungo Stray Dogs

Hey everyone, I wanted to create a reading challenge based on Bungo Stray Dogs. I finished watching season two today and I am so excited to see how this anime will continue once season 3 arrives. Because I felt inspired, I decided to do a reading challenge. I am not sure if anyone has made this challenge yet from what I’ve seen on the internet. Anyways, the characters of Bungo Stray Dogs are named after Japanese authors, and their powers are based off their literary works. The inner bookworm in me was excited!!  So, this will be my project that I’ll try to continuously update as more characters are introduced!! Anyone is free to join this reading challenge.

*For some of the characters, it was hard finding a particular book that relates to their power. I’ll try to associate books with each character.

**Some books are difficult for me to find online.

365 Days of YA: Book Challenge

Team Epic Reads posted this wonderful chart of books recommendations to read for the year. It’s quite challenging for me at the moment since I’m still in school, but nonetheless, I’ll try to at least read more in 2015 than last year. Last year, I read more manga than anything else. I was reading One Piece, Tokyo Ghoul, and several others, also I kept reading a lot of stories on Wattpad as well, but this year, I want to try and focus more on fiction. I’m really loving young adult literature at the moment, and that is why I think this is the right challenge for myself. I’ll try reading a total of 50 books this year. I’m really stoked that there is a lot of books to chose from, and it will be easier to focus on what book I want to read.

Here is the link for a pdf file of where I got the chart from:
