2018 Reading Challenges

2018 Reading ChallengesSince 2018 will be my first full year of blogging, I am going to be participating in some reading challenges. I’m really excited because I’ve never done a reading challenge before, but I think that it’s a great way to read more diverse books and genres than I would normally.

I’m going to participate in three challenges (as of now) and my hope is that they will be a fun encouragement for me to keep reading throughout the year.


Mount TBR Challenge

One of the challenges that I’ll be participating in next year is the Mount TBR Challenge, hosted by Bev at My Reader’s Block. The goal of this challenge is to whittle away books in your TBR pile; however, only books that you own prior to January 1, 2018 will count for this challenge.

The challenge levels (or “mountains”) are as follows:
Pike’s Peak: Read 12 books from your TBR pile/s
Mount Blanc: Read 24 books from your TBR pile/s
Mt. Vancouver: Read 36 books from your TBR pile/s
Mt. Ararat: Read 48 books from your TBR piles/s
Mt. Kilimanjaro: Read 60 books from your TBR pile/s
El Toro: Read 75 books from your TBR pile/s
Mt. Everest: Read 100 books from your TBR pile/s
Mount Olympus (Mars): Read 150+ books from your TBR pile/s

I will only be attempting Pike’s Peak this year because I don’t want to burn myself out on my first year participating in challenges. However, this could change. To keep up with me on this challenge through out the year, visit my Mount TBR Challenge page.

A-Z Reading Challenge

Another challenge that I’ll be participating in is the A-Z Reading Challenge, hosted by Megan at Ginger Mom and the Kindle Quest.  The goal of this challenge is to read a book that starts with each letter of the alphabet. I’m excited about this challenge because I definitely do not have a book for each letter in my review index yet.  The neat thing about this challenge is that books that I read for other challenges can easily count for this one, too. You can keep up with my progress here.

POPSUGAR Reading Challenge

The last challenge (as of now) that I’ll be participating in is POPSUGAR’s 2018 Reading Challenge.  Apparently they do one every year, but this is the first year that I heard about it.  There are 50 prompts such as, “a book with an ugly cover” or “a book about time travel,” and then you simply record which book you read that answers that prompt. You can see the books that I read for this challenge here.
