Reading Challenge

Reading Challenges 2021

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.

150 books (I hope I find this total easier than I did last year).

Pretty Mess Reading 2021 Reading Challenge

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

The Nerd Daily’s 2021 Reading Challenge


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.
