Year-Long Reading Challenge
Hey all! This is a short post, but I just wanted to make sure to begin the month with a Year Long Reading Challenge to go along with our monthly challenges!
It may seem daunting, but I actually managed to reach my goal this year- so, naturally, I want to challenge us further! I aimed for 25 new books last year and made it in JUST the nick of time (12/30 I finished The Well of Ascension by Brandon Sanderson and capped off the sweet, sweet challenge). It’s not about pages read or following trends, in my opinion (“Read just Young Adult novels! Whee!”… no thank you). To me, setting a reading challenge is supposed to keep your brain active and open-minded. When I am constantly filling my time with books, I find myself happier, more productive, and more creative.
So, why don’t we give this a shot!
I figured I would raise my number to 30 books this year. I’m not going to set any limits on how big a book should be or if audiobooks count or not (they totally do, by the way). As long as I get through a story by a published author, I will count it. You can all participate with me, too!
I’ll be posting my progress and to-be-read books on Goodreads. I’ll write posts once I’ve reached the completion of a novel, give honest reviews, and chat up whoever feels like joining/ whoever has read what’s on my shelf. Goodreads is such a convenient website/app, you can go ahead and download it for your phone/tablet/whatever and send me a friend request.
Click the link below if you want to join me, and let me know how many books you plan on reading this year! It’ll be easier with a good support system, especially when you’re reading a book you particularly don’t like or need help finding something to start next. And don’t limit yourself! Choose different genres you never would’ve chosen, authors you’ve never heard of, and mediums you’ve never tried. Audiobooks, graphic novels, anthologies, all of them are your friend in any reading challenge.
Until next time, friends!
