2022 Reading Challenge

Another year, another reading challenge to complete. Every year I set myself little tasks and targets I want to achieve in my reading, and given last year’s success I’m rather hopeful for this year.

As per usual, I’ll be setting myself a target of how many books I want to read, as well as attempting the PopSugar Reading Challenge for the sixth time. This year, though, there’s another one I want to try out – the Buzzwordathon from Books and Lala. Have I taken on too much?

2020 Reading Challenge Wrap Up

The year is finally over, and that means it’s also the end of my reading challenge. I love how much it pushes me to read more, and to discover books I wouldn’t ever have beforehand.

Down the TBR Hole: Chick Lit Edition

This year I’ll be making a really conscious effort to control my TBR. The Down the TBR Hole challenge was created by Lia over at Lost In A Story and it’s a great way to take a look at your shelf and make some pretty tough decisions a little easier.

  • List it in ascending order.
  • Pick the first five (or ten if you feel adventurous)
  • Decide whether to keep the book on your TBR or remove it.

Before I start the cull, I need to make it clear. Though I might be clearing a lot of books from my shelf this time, I do really enjoy chick-lit as a genre. I’m going to do eight in this post.

Down the TBR Hole #1

I’ve made a very startling discovery. I have quite a lot of books on my Goodreads TBR. So, I’ve decided it needs a bit of a cull. Thankfully, the lovely Lia from Lost in a Story has put together a little challenge to help make your TBR a little bit shorter. Down the TBR Hole is a simple way to get rid of some of the books that you will never read on your TBR and maybe lessen the load a little.

At the moment, my TBR has 317 books on it, which is kind of a lot. So, time to get a little harsh with the ones that are on it.
