Reading Challenges I’m Participating In This Year

Hi everyone! So I guess this is the first year I’m deciding on really challenging myself this year to do some reading challenges. Last year I didn’t part take in any reading challenges, any read-a-thons really… and this year is the year of change. 2020 is going to be the year I really challenge myself. SO I figured we start off with going over the challenges I’ll be participating in this year.

Now these challenges will take place over the entire course of 2020. I’m not really rushing to get them over with since I have 365 days to try and get through this. So here’s the list of all the ones I will be participating in this year.

A to Z Challenge

So this challenge is pretty self explanatory, pretty much just trying to read books with titles that start with each letter of the alphabet. Obviously there’s going to be some tricky letters to cover (u,z,x, etc.) but I think that will honestly just push me to go out of my comfort zone, so I think this will be a fun one to do.

Little Inklings 2020 Reading Challenge

If any of you have her planner, this is the reading challenge she put out for this year in her planner. There’s a lot of fun props in this one like a book involving a heist, a book set in space, a book with a cover you don’t like, the last book in a series and the list goes on and on. This will definitely be a little more tricky for me, but I am super excited to challenge myself with this. I’ll link the printable here and she also has a template for instagram im pretty sure too, so definitely check that out.

Reading Rainbow Challenge

Pretty easy in my opinion, but this challenge is all about reading books with covers of every color in the rainbow. Here are the colors:

  • Red
  • Orange
  • Yellow
  • Green
  • Blue
  • Purple
  • Pink
  • White
  • Black
  • Gold (Bonus)
  • Silver (Bonus)
  • Bronze (Bonus)

I don’t think this will be too hard to complete, but still fun.

On The Cover Challenge

This is just a challenge where you have to read books with these things on the cover. These things are:

  • A Tree
  • A Sword
  • 2 or More People
  • An Animal
  • Mountains
  • Fire
  • Water
  • Mythical Creature
  • Wings
  • Moon Or Stars

I think this is pretty do-able too.

Goodreads 2019 Winners Challenge

I’ll be posting a total seperate post on this, but basically, you read all of the 2019 winners from Goodreads. Soooo.. let’s see how this goes because there are some genres I am just not into.

2019 Reading Goals!

Hello everyone! Hope everyone had an amazing New Years. With every January 1st, comes our new year resolutions. I have separate resolutions from just books like simply just making my bed everyday, being more positive in life etc. But this year especially, I have a few more reading goals than I did last year. So let’s start the list!

1. Goodreads Reading Challenge

So in 2018 I was able to surpass my goal of 20 books read, reading 27 for the year (I started my goodreads in May so I’m definitely missing some books). This year I set my goal for 40! This is a little more of a challenge for me than last years challenge, but I think I can do it. Last year I set my goal so low because I was reading full, 400 page books, but towards the end of the year I got back into mangas/graphic novels, which I’m still on a bit of a kick to read them so that’s why I feel like I can definitely make 40 books work for the year.

2. Reading 50 pages per day/ 1 hour of audiobook

This is something different I’ve never done, but I’m excited to try. I found myself reading on some days a full 300 pages and then for a week after not reading at all, so I really wanted to make this resolution so I can learn to pace myself and not get burned out from reading. If I reach 50 pages or that hour mark, I can either stop or keep going if I’d like, but I can still feel accomplished if I at least read those 50 pages. In my reading journal I will be marking all the days I accomplish this on the monthly calendar view with a simple check mark.

3. Read the Harry Potter Series

Guys, I know. I’ve never read the Harry Potter series, but this year that will change. I don’t plan on accomplishing this right away, maybe towards summer/fall time, but it will get done this year!

4. Stay on top of Library book due dates

I just recently started using my local library to help read books because, my bank account from buying books was suffering! One issue I’ve always had though, was late fees. So I plan on getting better with this this upcoming year.

5. Reading Journal Upkeep

So this isn’t really a resolution, because I’ve been doing this since last year July, but I really want to include it because I don’t want to give up on it! Annotating in my books for me is a big no no, so I use a notebook/journal to keep track of all my notes from my reading. I love it! It’s so nice and organized and I really want to keep up with it!

What are some of your New Years resolutions? Any book related ones?
