I used to go a little bit crazy with the reading challenges, but as the years have gone on my life has gotten busier and I don’t have the time to dedicate to reading like I once did. Despite that, I’d still like to take part in a few challenges other than the usual Goodreads Challenge (I’m aiming for 5 books. lol.) and I figured I’d share which ones I’m doing!
A to Z Reading Challenge
This challenge is a popular one that has been around for years. I’ve not taken part before, but I’ve decided that I own enough books now that I can realistically take part without spending any more money on books to fill in the letters. I’ve dedicated an entire shelf to this challenge and I’m really looking forward to trying it out!
Beat the Backlist 2018
This is another challenge that’s going to help me reduce my TBR. I’m planning on reading a tonne of books that I already own, which means I’ll be reading books released before 2017 and therefore I will COMPLETELY CONQUER THIS CHALLENGE. Maybe. I hope.
Debut Author Challenge
I take part in this challenge every year because I really enjoy promoting and supporting debut authors. I think I’ve done this challenge six years in a row now and I’m not planning on stopping. I figure that since I’m only aiming for twelve books, it won’t have too much of an effect on the other challenges that aim to reduce my TBR pile. I haven’t decided on which debuts I want to read yet because there are so many out there.
A Series A Month Challenge
The A Series A Month Challenge might be a little bit ambitious considering I’m not the best at continuing on with series… or at reading. But I have a tonne of series starters that I figure I could try to get through some of them.
Let me know what challenges you’re looking forward to doing this year! I might add some more if I get the inspiration!
