This is a little late, I know. I haven’t had much time or headspace to think ahead to the New Year since Blogmas took up so much of my time. Since four was too easy and six was a little too hard, I’m going for five challenges this year.
I haven’t picked strict monthly challenges this time. Only one of them have a time limit that’s shorter than the end of the year. I think some flexibility would do my reading good.
Goodreads 2021 Reading Challenge
150 books (I hope I find this total easier than I did last year).
My own challenge! I have until 12th February to read the following:
- Exercise More: Once Upon A River by Diane Setterfield
- Learn A New Skill: The Thursday Murder Club by Richard Osman
- Save Money: Ninth House by Leigh Bardugo
- Reduce Stress: Heartstopper Volume 3 by Alice Oseman
- Travel More: Grave Importance by Vivian Shaw
- Spend More Time With Friends and Family: Surrounded by Idiots by Thomas Erikson
- Stop Procrastinating: The Prince and the Dressmaker by Jen Wang
- Focus on Self-Care: How I Learned To Make Friends With The Dark by Katherine Glasgow
- Screw Resolutions, I Quit!: The Bear and the Nightingale by Katherine Arden
I haven’t planned ahead very much with this one. I haven’t had time and I want a bit more flexibility in my picks. I’ve opted for the monthly version and have picked my January books, though.
- 2020 Bestseller: Girl, Woman, Other by Bernadine Evaristo
- Reread a Favourite Book: Every Heart A Doorway by Seanan Mcguire
Another one I haven’t planned thoroughly for. I’ve picked a couple of titles off my TBR for the challenge but the rest will just have to be figured out as I go.
- An Audiobook: Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert
- 2020 Goodreads Choice Nominee: The Midnight Library by Matt Haig
- Two Word Title: Red Rising by Pierce Brown
- Part of a Trilogy: The Wicked King by Holly Black
- Title Starts with ‘G’ or ‘K’: Gideon the Ninth by Tamsyn Muir
- Written by a Queer Author: Trans Like Me by CN Lester
- A New Author to You: Traitor’s Blade by Sebestian de Castell
2021 Popsugar Reading Challenge
I honestly haven’t the foggiest on what books I’m going to read for this one! I haven’t even tried to pick the books yet and I don’t think I’ll try just yet. I might as well keep my options open.
Are you doing any reading challenges this year? Are you regretting your decisions already? Let me know in the comments below.
I hope to see you again very soon.
