Let’s Talk Bookish – Reading Challenges

Good morning. Welcome to another Let’s Talk Bookish post! Let’s Talk Bookish is a weekly meme, created and hosted by me, where we discuss chosen topics, share our opinions, and spread the love by visiting each other’s posts.

Today’s topic is: What are your thoughts regarding reading challenges?


I’m just tired right now. I was sick Monday, and again yesterday (migraines are the absolute worst), so I’m trying to catch up with my school and college work. I’ve got two essays, a science discussion, one test with a paragraph response for literature, and I’m just not in the mood to write this post, nor do I have the time.

I’ll probably be posting next month’s topics sometime next week before Friday. If you have any topic ideas, please do share them. It’d be so helpful. My Wrap-Up is probably going to take forever to appear, and I’m not able to read, which is frustrating, because I’ve got Blood Heir* (that I’ve been waiting so long for!) which is due in 3 days. So I’ve got to either sacrifice my time to read the book in one go, or wait a few months to get it again. Neither option is good or helpful.

So yeah, that’s been my week so far.

*If you want to hear my thoughts regarding the drama surrounding Blood Heir by Amélie Wen Zhao, check out my post on Diversity and Representation in YA ft. a rant about ‘Americanism’

Some questions that you could answer about this topic:

  • Have you ever taken part in a reading challenge? If so, which ones?
  • Did you enjoy it?
  • Do you think reading challenges help you read more, or do they add unnecessary stress?

This Week’s Participants:

  1. Get well, Rukky! I hope you’re able to catch up on your school work just alright ✊🏽.
    Reading challenges always intrigue me, but I’m too moody of a reader to ever commit to them 😅.

    1. Thank you Belle ❤ I was able to thankfully!
      Haha, yeah. You could try doing reading challenges that are pretty broad in the genre (like a Mystery challenge, and then you can read romantic mysteries, horror mysteries, YA mysteries, fantasy mysteries etc. and you’ll have a broad range)? Maybe that would help 🙂
