My 2018 Reading Challenges

Yes, I know January is almost over. I usually decide which challenges I’m participating in before the end of the previous year, but there was too much going on and I was in a major reading slump.

But, all is well now and I’m ready for some challenges. I narrowed it down to four challenges, though one is really a catchall challenge. You’ll see what I mean in a sec.

Here are the challenges I’m doing this year:

  1. The BookRiot Read Harder Challenge. I’ve attempted this challenge before, and it really is a challenge because it forces me to read outside my usual genres and often outside of my comfort zone, which is great. This year, I’m determined to complete it.
  2. The Modern Mrs. Darcy Reading Challenge. Twelve books, across a variety of genres and lengths and subjects. This should be a good one.
  3. The 2018 Graphic Novel & Manga Challenge. This is hosted via a FB group and I’m looking forward to it a lot. My comics reading slowed WAAAAY down last year and I missed them. This will help get me back on track and hopefully I’ll read some stuff I haven’t considered trying before, thanks to the other members’ recommendations.
  4. The GoodReads Reading Challenge. This is a catch-all. My goal is to read 100 books this year. It’s been a couple of years since I’ve managed it but what with all of the other challenges I’m doing (60 books altogether, to complete my other 3 challenges) I should be able to do it. I just need to get on track and be willing to set things aside if they’re not working for me so I don’t get into a reading slump again.

So, that’s the plan. It should be a good reading year and while I’m a little bit behind already, I don’t think it’ll take much to catch up again. I’m excited about all of the good books I have ahead of me.
