How to Complete the Challenge

Twelve Books, Twelve Months...

Getting Started

You can start the challenge at any time in the year. Your first book should relate to the month you start. So if you pick up the challenge in June you'll be starting by reading Jill by Amy Dillwyn. All our classics are available from your local bookshop, but you can also buy them online and they are all available as eBooks too.

Reviewing Your Read

Reviews make a huge difference to small presses. Leaving a review on sites like Amazon, GoodReads and Kobo allow our books to reach new audiences which helps us continue our work. By leaving a review of one of these titles you are helping us promote Welsh Women's voices to a new generation of readers.

Getting Connected

Follow us on social media to stay connected with the challenge, or subscribe to our newsletter to hear more about the classics. We love to hear updates on your progress so tag us @honno or #HonnoClassicsChallenge and we can cheer you on. You can also join our Clwb Honno group on Facebook and chat with other readers doing the challenge.

What Next

There are over 35 Welsh Women's Classics for you to discover and we continue to publish at least one Classic every year so the content will keep coming. Take a look at our Classics page for more titles and of course don't forget to take a look at our other books for your next favourite read.
