My 2016 Literary Loners Reading Challenge Sign-Up

Thanks to Jamie at the Whatever I Think Of! blog for hosting the 2016 Literary Loners Reading Challenge!  Here is some info from the site:

There will be two options for this challenge and you may choose one or both.  The first option is to read books featuring a character identified as a loner, outcast, recluse, wallflower, or introvert. This can be the main character (such as Bella from Twilight or Charlie from The Perks of Being a Wallflower) or a secondary one (such as Miss Havisham from Great Expectationsor Boo Radley fromTo Kill a Mockingbird.  The second option will be to read works written by writers known to have been loners or recluses. The great poet Emily Dickinson was very much a loner as was author J.D. Salinger,  and this link says the ancient Greek playwright Euripides was something of a loner.  A biography of such writers may be read as well.

Visit the blog for more details (such as links to lists of books and authors who would fit the loner category) and to sign up!


There are no levels per se in this challenge, so completely arbitrarily, I will list 6 reads that would fit this category.

  1. Hi, I'm doing this again next year if you are interested. My post has been up for two weeks now (I know, I'm ahead of the game!) I'm also doing three other new challenges next year. Here are the links:
