Hi guys! How are you all doing today? I wanted to post about reading challenges that I’m taking part in this year. Last year, I joined the book blogging community quite late (December) so I didn’t have a chance to take part in any challenges. However this year, I’m jumping in headfirst and I hope I complete all the prompts by the end of the year.
The three challenges I’m taking part in are:
Popsugar’s 2019 Reading Challenge
Goodreads’ 2019 Reading Challenge
& Mommy Mannegren’s 2019 Reading Challenge
We need more creative names for these challenges.
Popsugar’s 2019 Reading Challenge:
We’re more excited than ever about this year’s reading challenge, and we can’t wait to show you our fresh batch of 50 book prompts. These include the standard 40 book challenge prompts plus 10 “advanced” prompts for those overachievers out there who are looking for even more ways to push their reading boundaries in 2019.
Popsugar has been hosting a reading challenge since 2015 and I just became aware of this recently. I’m glad to announce that I’m joining the 2019 challenge. There are 50 prompts, 40 of which are standard and 10 are bonus prompts.
The prompts are interesting and its going to be fun looking for books that fit each criteria.
Goodreads 2019 Reading Challenge:
Another challenge that I’m taking part in, is the Goodreads reading challenge. I completed the challenge for the first time last year and I’m excited to join again this year. Last year, my goal was 40 books, but this year I’m taking a huge leap with a goal of 100 books.
The rules are simple and straightforward. If you’ve read a book this year, even if it’s a re-read, it counts towards your goal. (Maybe I should just read one book a hundred times 😎) You can read anything and everything and Goodreads will keep track of the books you read for you. They even suggest other books based on the ones you’ve already read.
Wish me luck guys!
Mommy Mannegren 2019 Reading Challenge:
This year’s challenge will take on the same format as last year as we attempt to read our way through 52 books in 52 weeks. In the graphic below, you will find fifty-two different categories. Some of my favourites from this year include: “a one-word title,” “an author who uses a pseudonym,” and “a family member’s favourite book.” Many of these categories were suggested by readers who participated in last year’s challenge and I can’t wait to dive in!
I found this challenge when I was searching for the Popsugar reading challenge. 52 books in 52 weeks with different prompts that are very simple. There is a Facebook group and a printable sheet to help you keep track of your progress.
All the prompts are pretty easy and you can interpret them however you want. If you think a book fits a certain prompt, then by all means, read it and use it for the prompt.
There aren’t any rules (all these challenges don’t have rules, LOL). The challenge was created to help you read books out of your comfort zone and to help you open doors to other genres.
It’s going to be fun doing these challenges and using one book to mark off prompts on all three challenges. What challenges are you guys taking part in this year? How many books do you plan on reading? Let’s chat in the comments below!
