2018 Reading Challenges

Goodreads Reading Challenge

I’m participating in the Goodreads challenge again this year. Last year my goal was to read 100 books and I read exactly that! This year I decreased my goal to 90 books. I feel like I have lots more going on in 2018 and I want to read books because I love reading not to meet a challenge. (However, if I read more than 90 books I will be very happy!)

Other challenges

I’ve decided to participate in a few other challenges this year. Last year I didn’t take part in any reading challenges so I’m ready this year to jump in. It’s always fun and I usually read books I might not read otherwise. Some of these challenges need me to not only read the book, but also post a review. Thus, I’ve decided to do at least a mini review of the books I read. Hopefully this will get me to write a little about the books I’m reading.

Cloak and Dagger Challenge

Hosted by Stormi @ Books, Movies, Reviews! Oh My!

I can read any type of mystery for this challenge. I like that about the challenge. I had a lot of fun when I did this challenge a couple of years ago.

Goal: Inspector Level–26-35 books

Monthly Link-up for mysteries read each month.

Discussion Challenge

Hosted by Nicole @ Feed Your Fiction Addiction and Shannon @ It Starts at Midnight!

Discuss books and book blogging. Talk about whatever you want as long as it’s relevant to book blogging. Discussions can be book related or book blogging related (or generally blogging related).

Goal: Discussion Dabbler–1-10 discussions

Monthly Link-up for discussion posts each month for giveaways and see what discussions other people post.

POPSUGAR Reading Challenge

Hosted on the POPSUGAR website.

I participated in this challenge two or three years ago and it was lots of fun. I did read types of books I don’t often read by doing this challenge last time so I hope to do the same this year. There’s also a Goodreads group that I can join. (I’ll think about that for now.)

Goal: to broaden my reading horizons by trying to read all 40 of the book prompts plus there are 10 extra book prompts in a more advanced listing. I hope I can complete at least 80% of the list.

Swords & Stars Reading Challenge

Hosted by MsNoseinaBook

This is a new challenge and it sounds fun. There’s a list of twenty science fiction & fantasy prompts. I’m looking forward to how many books I will find to fit the different prompts.

Goal: I would like to read a book for each challenge on this list, but would be happy with finishing 80% of the list.

…………………………

I plan to create a page on my blog for each of these challenges so that I can keep track of my progress.

Are you participating in any reading challenges this year? Do you like reading challenges? What are your favorite challenges?

I love to read--especially mysteries, science fiction and fantasy. I also love blogging, photography, gardening, playing Mah Jonng, reading with a cat on my lap, throwing a ball for a dog, creating cards to send to family and friends, reading book blogs, using my computer.

  1. Best of luck in your reading challenges:). I’m going to stick with trying to read and review 100 books, though there’s a chance I won’t make it this year as I have a very heavy writing schedule. Other than that, I’m keeping it simple – just trying to continue with my New Discovery Challenge, reading a minimum of 2 books a month from women writers I haven’t previously read and trying to clear more of my backlog:). I love the idea of your Sword and Stars Reading Challenge, though!

    1. Thanks, Sarah. I’m hoping the challenges will get me to do at least mini reviews of my books. I am trying to read more of my backlog of books, too. I have lots of really good books and I want to read some of them!

      Good luck with your reading and your writing. It’s great to have a heavy writing schedule even if it does take up a lot of your time.
