Ahhhh the beginning of the year. New calendars, new goals, new reading challenges! I get so excited when the end of the year comes, because it means I’m about to be picking out the next batch of challenges I’ll be taking on.
You know I love me a good challenge, so this is always exciting to me… and there are so many to choose from. You can always guarantee that there will be TBR challenges, classics challenges, cozy mystery challenges, and YA challenges. And then there aresa ones with a variety of genres, and I always get a kick out of seeing what they picked this year…
So how do you get started?It's a brand new year, which means it's time for a new round Reading Challenges... did you sign up for any? Click To Tweet
And believe me… you can spend hours going through those sites, because there are dozens, maybe hundreds of these reading challenges. Every year I think… ehhhh I’ll just sign up for a couple… and next thing I know I’ve signed up for a dozen.
The good news is, that most of them permit crossovers with other challenges. For example, let’s say one challenge asks you to read a book that’s been turned into a movie… and you choose Murder On the Orient Express. And then another challenge asks you to choose a cozy mystery, and another challenge asks you to choose a book involving travel, and still another says to choose a book with a 5 word title… your original selection works for all of those challenge prompts as well. Huzzah!
You have to read each challenge carefully though, because they all have their own rules. Some only allow physical books, while others allow physical, ebook, or audiobook. Some just want you to drop a comment as your sign-up, and others want you to write up a blog post. Some let you get away with a comment on the blog about which book you read for each prompt, while others want Goodreads reviews, and others want you to write a blog post for each book. What’s your limit? What are you willing to do? Choose accordingly.
Next week I’ll be sharing which reading challenges I’ve signed up for, but for now I’d love to know… do you do these too?
