2015 Book Challenges

Friday, January 9, 2015
 Ok... I am a few days late in posting this, but I am just now going through all the challenges out there and which ones to join. First up of course is the goodreads challenge which I participate in every year.  Goodreads was one of the first websites that really got me into reading and had things take off for me.  So of course I joined some.  I guess you can't embed the goodreads challenges anymore???






The next one I really loved this year that I have been seeing bloggers participating in is the Pop Sugar Book Challenge!!  I didn't even know that site had Challenges so I am actually looking through all of them.  You will have to click on the image to enlarge it since I couldn't really size it right for the webpage.


 


I am going to participate in the Snagged @ The Library Challenge where we read 12 books from the library this year.  It's going to actually be pretty easy for me since I get all my books from the library.  But we'll see since another one of my goals is to read books I own this year too.  So we'll see!!

And finally I will be participating again in the 2015 Graphic Novels Challenge!!!  I actually created the button for this year's challenge!  Woot!

 


Lory @ The Emerald City is hosting this Challenge.  I really really want to read the books I own this year.  I have a few that I have bought over the past two years that keep getting put to the side because of library books.

I am going to finish a bunch of series this year!!

Are there any challenges you are doing this year???  I am looking for a finish series challenge but haven't found one yet... do you happen to know if anyone is hosting one???

  1. I'm doing the Discussion Post challenge, as I want to write more discussion posts. I have a difficult time keeping up with challenges, so I didn't officially sign up for anything else. I do get a lot of books from the library though, and I want to continue reading a lot of graphic novels.

  2. Is this series ender challenge what you're looking for? http://wordsfueledbylove.blogspot.com/2014/11/2015-series-ender-reading-challenge_8.html

  3. These challenges are new to me! If I didn't have enough on my plate this year I'd definitely join the graphic novel challenge. The only two I've joined so far is the Goodreads challenge and a book buying ban challenge.


    Good luck meeting your challenge goals!

  5. I'm just terrible at doing challenges, but most of my reads are library reads, so maybe I should sign up for that one!

  6. I'm the same with Goodreads :) It was my first foray into e-life for a reader years ago :) I always join in on that one too. You can embed it still but holy cow they made it HARD to find.

    Go to edit your profile > widgets >scroll WAY down and there's code to add. Took me a long while to find that. Whew!

  7. The PopSugar one looks really fun! I was thinking about unofficially participating in it just to see how many books I could mark off. Good luck!

  8. This is the first year I have actually signed up for challenges and wanted to actually push through them. That pop sugar one really looks entertaining to me so that is the one I am most excited about participating in. I really love it!

  9. Oh thank you so much for pointing me in the right direction. There are so many challenges I wish there was like a master list somewhere.

  10. The one I never have to participate in is the book buying challenge because really I don't ever buy any books. It's almost like I need a challenge to make me buy books. LOL! The library being free is just so amazing to me!

  11. I hadn't heard of the Read Harder challenge. Or I did and then I just skimmed it. I am going to check it out and see which one I like better.

  12. LOL.. I had to sign up for that one even though I guess it's technically cheating since I do it anyways. Might be a challenge though since this year I am also trying to read all the books I own.

  13. Yeah... I can't find the embed ANYWHERE so thank you so much for that info. I also didn't really put a lot of time into finding it so there is that too.

  14. Good for you with the audio book challenge. I still can't really get into audio books. I have tried. On road trips I usually can listen to them but at home and what not I just can't concentrate on it. Good luck!

  15. I just want to participate in the other challenges that Pop Sugar has. Who knew they had so many!

  16. I'm doing the Back to the Classics challenge, and the Book Blog Discussion Challenge to get me to add some variety to my post. Plus Put the Library on Hold of course. Good luck with all of these!

  17. I want to do the Book Blog Discussion Challenge too!! I need to think of some discussions soon. I just haven't had any come to mind yet.

  18. I always participate in the goodreads challenge, just to keep track of what I am reading and it's fun to see if I read as many books as I planned to at the start of the year.


    The Pop Sugar challenge sounds like a lot of fun. I saw it around a few other blogs, but I don't read enough to participate in it. It sounds fun though!


    Good luck with your reading challenges!

  19. Thanks!! We'll see if I get to that Pop Sugar challenge. My big challenge this year is to read all the books I own... so I am not going to do anything else until that is done!

  20. Yay! I didn't realize you did the button for the Graphic Novel Challenge. I am participating again this year too :)

    ReplyDelete
  21. Yeah I totally made that button!! ahahaha
