2018 is the year for ALL the challenges. While I like to think I am a mood reader and sometimes I am, I can get too overwhelmed if I am left with a lot of choices. This has in the past, resulted with me not picking up a book for days, wasting valuable reading time!
While I would LOVE to meet all the challenges below, I may not, and that is okay as well. Reading is, after all, meant to be fun and enjoyable. So my main goal, despite all the ones below?
To read, every single day.
Not to be confused with reading a whole book every day. This goal may be achieved by me just reading on my commute, this may be achieved by listening to a bit of my audiobook, this could very well be me holing up on the weekend with a stack of books. No matter how little or how much, as long as I strive to read SOMETHING every day this year, I will have achieved THE GOAL.
Each year I like to set an achievable target on GR. While I also track my reading in different ways, GR is always my single point of truth and what I check on a daily basis, mainly use the app on my phone. This year I have set my goal to 100 (#roadto100). The link below will take you to the page where I will keep track, on my blog, everything I read in 2018, including the books I haven't reviewed. Add me on Goodreads and let's support each other to achieve our reading goals, no matter how small or big they may be.
This is the first year I will trying to complete the Book Riot Read Harder Challenge (BR RH). The list is designed to make you read diversely and pick up books you might not have tried otherwise. Click below to find out what books I will be reading for the prompts and how I am going throughout the year.
Reading Women is biweekly podcast by two amazing women. They have decided to do a reading challenge this year and when I saw the prompts, I could not resist. Click below to find out out the books I will be reading for the prompts - I promise NOT ALL picks will be double ups from the BR RH challenge. Reading and celebrating the works of women? Yes Please.
If you are an Australian or New Zealand book blogger or reader, you can join the Australian YA Bloggers and Readers Group on Goodreads. They are hosting the AusYaBloggers Reading Challenge this year with four prompts each month for YA reads. The fourth prompt has to be a LoveOZYA or a LoveNZYA book but the other three in the month you can choose whatever YA book you want, from whatever country you want, as long as it fits the prompt (though bonus if you can match OZ YA to all the picks, you smart thing you!).
