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?

Bookish Resolutions for 2021

This post is part of Top Ten Tuesday run by Jana from That Artsy Reader Girl.

I love sitting down at the beginning of the year and setting myself some goals for the coming year. With the year we’ve just had, I have had a rethink about some of my goals – I don’t think I’m going to be able to “visit a new place every month” in 2021 either.

Luckily, book resolutions are still something I can set and (hopefully) achieve. There are just a few things I would love to do by the end of the year.

2021 Reading Challenge

Every year I set myself some reading goals to see me through the next year. With the success of last year behind me, there’s a lot to build on for 2021. Who knows how much time we’ll be spending indoors to be able to read, anyway?

With a brand new 365 day stretch ahead, it’s time to think about what’s to come for my reading goals. As per usual, I’ll be taking part in two reading challenges – the Goodreads Reading Challenge and the Popsugar Reading Challenge. Again, I’ll be marking off everything I’ve read towards the Popsugar challenge on this post.

Reading Challenge 2020

This is the fifth year I’ve regaled you all with my reading challenge successes (or failures), and I’m really excited for this one. I really love looking back over the year and seeing how many of the prompts I’ve crossed off. I’m then wrecking my head in the later months trying to find a book to clear up the ones I’ve yet to tick.

I’ve once again decided to forego the Modern Mrs Darcy reading challenge, though I have looked at the prompts and they seem really interesting. For 2020, however, all my energy will be on the PopSugar reading challenge.

It’s the one challenge I look forward to every year, and it’s been a staple of my book blogging since I revived it in 2016. I really like this challenge as there are basic prompts, with 40 to complete, but there’s also an extra 10 for if you want to let your inner Matilda Wormwood shine.

2019 Reading Challenge

Here we are at the start of another new year. So, the first thing to say is Happy New Year! The next thing to think about is, how my reading year went in 2018 and how it’s going to look in 2019. This time, I actually spent time to think about where I wanted my reading to go in 2019. Do I want to speed through 120 books I can barely remember the plot of in December? Am I taking part in every reading challenge under the sun? Time to find out. . .

I say this every year, but it doesn’t feel like a whole year has past since I put together my reading challenge for 2018. I spent the year in a flurry of books, travelling, reading, and buying books I could barely afford or house. In terms of my reading challenges, 2018 was pretty successful. I bossed a couple of the challenges, while others needed a lot more work. That was something I took into account when I thought about my 2019 reading challenge.
