I’m still working on a 2018 Reading Challenge wrap-up, but I’m already looking forward to these new challenges. This year, I’ve created separated pages to keep track of most of the challenges, all linked up there in the menu bar.
Children’s Literature Challenges
- 12 Children’s Classics for 2019 is hosted by Book Hippie. One book is already selected for each month. I’ll be keeping track on my 12 Children’s Classics for 2019 page.
- The 2019 Middle Grade Reading Challenge is hosted by Becky’s Book Reviews. There are different ways to complete the challenge; I’ve opted for six or more books to fill categories on the checklist.
Genre- and Period-Based Challenges
- Back to the Classics is hosted by Books and Chocolate. I’m taking books from my Classics Club list to fill the 12 categories.
- The Georgian Reading Challenge is hosted by Becky’s Book Reviews. The goal is a minimum of four books – fiction or non-fiction – related to the Georgian era (I’m using the 1714-1830 period – sorry, William IV). I’ve earmarked some possible titles.
- The Victorian Reading Challenge is also hosted by Becky’s Book Reviews, with options of a BINGO card or a checklist of 20 titles, as well as a couple more self-directed themes. I’m going for the checklist. Of course.
- Cruisin’ Thru The Cozies is hosted by Socrates’ Book Reviews. My goal is “Level 1 (Snoop)” – 10 cozy mysteries), and I totally using the checklist.
Expanding My Reading Horizons Challenges
- Read Harder comes from the fab folks at Book Riot. Some of the 24 tasks are going to be more challenging than others, but I’ve got #14 covered.
- The Reading Women challenge comes from the Reading Women podcast. It also has 24 tasks, and some of these will definitely be challenging.
- The Official TBR Pile Challenge is hosted by Roof Beam Reader. I’ve already picked out my list of 12 books (plus 2 alternates). I completely forgot about the check-in posts in 2018: another thing to improve on in the new year!
Outside Category Challenges
- Blogger Shame Challenge: Hosted at Herding Cats & Burning Soup, this is a challenge meant to nudge those of us who read advance review copies to actually, well, review the books. I’m hoping to improve my NetGalley feedback rating a lot.
- Reading Challenge Addict Challenge: If you’ve made it this far down the list, you already know why I’ve signed up for this one. My goal is “On the Roof” (6-10 challenges entered and completed.
- Classics Club: I’ve put this in “Outside Category” because it’s a multi-year challenge. I have a list of 50 books that I plan to read before the end of 2023.
How about you? Are you doing any of these challenges? Or different ones?
