2015 HAS OFFICIAL STARTED! And since it’s a new year it means that for this book reader there is a whole year of new challenges! I will be participating in two year long reading challenges this year that I have already established for myself as well as one challenge on BookTube. So let’s dive right in with what the challenges are!
The first challenge I am setting for myself is the Goodreads reading challenge for 2015. This is a common challenge for most people who are on Goodreads. The idea is to set a reading goal for yourself, whether it be 20 books or 100 books and then attempt to read that many books throughout the year. This last year I set my goal at 50 and it was a bit high for me. I think if I would have started at the beginning of the year with the goal I would have been find but I decided to set it a bit lower this year. So for 2015 I set my goal at 30 books and I might update that if I end up hitting it before the year is over.
The second challenge is one that I found while searching Pinterest for some reading challenges for this year. The one that I found originated on PopSugar and has a long list of different types of books to check off as your read things in 2015. My idea for this is to supplement my Goodreads reading challenge with this one to get me to read more diverse books that I probably wouldn’t pick up otherwise. I normally stick to a pretty predictable set of genres and I am making a goal for myself to branch out and explore more genres in 2015.
The last reading “challenge” that I might be participating in on BookTube is the 2015 TBR Jar challenge which was created by Katytastic. The video she created has all of the qualifications for books that you can submit to the TBR jar for the year. Each month, one book on my TBR list will come from the TBR jar that I will be creating! Hopefully next week I will have a post about making my jar and deciding which books to put in it! So keep an eye out for that 🙂
If you want to participate in any of these challenges let me know below and we can chat about them as the year goes along! Happy 2015 everyone!
