2023 Book Riot’s Read Harder Challenge

My ninth year doing this challenge! Last year I didn’t complete it, but it seems a lot easier this year, nothing really out of my normal reading: Asian? African? Indigenous? Microhistory? Classic Retelling? Manga? Maybe they realize they overdid it last year, and decided that a graphic novel of a classic retelling drawn by an indigenous artist who is also LGBTQ is a bit too challenging?
