I’ve decided to take on a new reading challenge in 2021 which I’m calling my Novel Travel Quest ๐Ÿ˜€

The Reason

I love to travel and I love to read so the idea for this quest was perfect as it combines two of my favorite things. With the ongoing pandemic, travel is not currently an option so being able to travel even in my head and visit countries through Christian fiction stories made this quest really appealing.

The Goal

My goal is to read a Christian fiction book based in every country of the world and review it here on the site.

The majority of the story needs to be set in the specific country to count. I don’t know if there is Christian fiction based in every country in the world, so it will be a journey.

There are 193 countries based on the United Nations member states list which I’m using as my reference. It’s unlikely that I’ll find Christian fiction based in each country but I’m certainly curious to see how many countries I am able to “visit”.

For the timeline, I do want this quest to be fun and not feel too much pressure to hit a number in a specific time. That said, I function better where there is a date set so Iโ€™ll see where I am in one year’s time. Then I can adjust as needed.


Hereโ€™s a list of FAQ about the challenge.

I'll start by reading books on my TBR list as a way to start to decrease this. Where I'll be purchasing books, I use suggestions and recommendations to see which story appeals most to me.
I'm open to reading books from most genres, however, I generally find that I read contemporary, mystery and suspense
My plan is to read about actual places and sites that exist in real life as much as possible. It would be awesome if I am able to physically visit the place in the future. However, I do realise that this may not be possible with every book.
I will choose 1 book from those that I've read to count towards this quest. In the book review, I'll share more info on how I chose the particular book
My plan is to read all new books, however, depending on options in some countries, it may be that I need to re-read books
Not necessarily, I'm quite open to country hopping all around the world (especially as I don't have airfare to worry about lol)
Where I can, I will try to read books by local CF authors however, the main criterion is that the book be based in the specific country.
