Today I wanted to share the 2016 Reading Challenges I’m participating in, in case they’ll help you pick what to read next (as they help me).
If you are anything like us, you are absolutely addicted to books and perhaps even book challenges. In fact, if you ask me, there is no better way to ring in the New Year than with a fantastic book challenge for 2016. Book challenges are great ways to keeping yourself reading as well as discover new and exciting books. I know that I have a bad habit of only reading certain genres that I know I love or books by authors that have never left me disappointed. Check out Popsugar’s Reading Challenge for 2016!
Did you participate in this book challenge? How did you do?
Can you believe it is already almost time for the Semi-Charmed Winter 2015 Book Challenge? I know we can’t! Megan, the amazing book blogger behind the challenge, hosts this seasonal book challenge every year — she has challenges for spring, summer, fall, and winter! The Winter 2015 Book Challenge is set to begin November 1st and end January 31st. In order to qualify, the books you read must be at least 200 pages in length. To read more about the rules of this challenge, go here.
The challenge categories are:
5 points // Read a book that has between 100 and 200 pages.
10 points // Read a debut book by any author (the book does not have to be a 2015 debut).
10 points // Read a book that does not take place in your current country of residence.
10 points // Read a book that someone else has already used for the challenge.
15 points // Read a book published under a pseudonym.
15 points // Read a book with “boy”, “girl”, “man”, or “woman” in the title (plural of those words is okay too).
15 points // Read a book with a one-word title.
20 points // Read a book with a person’s first and last name in the title.
20 points // Read a food-themed book.
20 points // Read a book with a verb in the title.
30 points // Read two books with the same title by different authors.
30 points // Read a nonfiction book and a fiction book about the same subject.
The total number of points you can earn is 200!
To help you keep track, Megan will be publishing a check-in post on the first day of each month beginning on December 1st. You can comment with your progress there! Megan will also include a scoreboard from the previous month on each check-in post so you can see where you rank so far.
