2017 Reading Challenges
We’re almost a week into the new year, meaning everyone is starting their new year’s resolutions. Which means it’s a great opportunity to creating a resolution dedicated to changing up your reading habits. Maybe you want to read novels with more diverse characters or read in other languages. Maybe you want to read a minimum number of pages every day or have a set number of books you want to finish by the end of 2017.
Whatever reading goal you want to accomplish this year below are some reading challenges to keep you on track and diversify your book list:
2017 Popsugar Reading Challenge
This year you can go through 40 book prompts PLUS and “advanced” section for the hardcore readers. Some are pretty vague like, “read an audiobook” while others a more specific like, “a book with a cat on the cover.” The great think about the Popsugar Challenge is that you’re not expected to finish the whole challenge but just have a good time throughout the year.
Book Riot’s 2017 Read Harder Challenge
This will be the third annual 2017 Read Harder Challenge. Just like previous years, there are 24 tasks, averaging to two per month. It’s meant to help readers, “…explore topics or formats or genres that you otherwise wouldn’t try.”
Retellings Reading Challenge by Once Upon a Bookcase
To participate in this challenge you have to share your thoughts on retellings. These can include anything from fairy tale retellings, classics, myths and legends and folk tales. You can get more info on the challenge here and use the #RetellingsRC2017.
Banned/Challenged Books Reading Challenge by Book Dragon’s Lair
Whether you’ve decided to pick up a classic banned novel like “The Catcher in the Rye” or a more recently published book like “Thirteen Reasons Why” you’ve officially joined the Challenged Books Reading Challenge.
The Goodreads Around the Year in 52 Books
If you’d prefer a more relaxed reading challenge then why not check out Around the Year in 52 Books. All you have to do is read 52 books of your choice. This can include anything from graphic novels to picture books. It’s up to you.
