Ready, Set, Go! Reading Challenges for 2020

For 2020, I’m planning on four challenges and one regular meme.

I’m continuing with my personal creation, #TheClassicsEight, in which I aim to read eight classics from my own shelves over the course of the year.

#AWW2020 is a given. For those who aren’t aware, I coordinate the challenge and editorial team, while also functioning as Historical Fiction Editor. I am, however, lowering my target for this year. I’ve been going with 80 books for the last few years but I’ve decided to drop it back to 52, which of course equates to one book a week. I like the neatness of that.

#BookBingo2020 with Mrs B’s Book Reviews and The Book Muse has already been launched, but just to refresh, here’s our card:

#2020ReadNonFic is a new challenge created by Book’d Out. I have signed as a up as a Nonfiction Nibbler to read 6 books over the course of the year. Each book needs to fit one of the following themes:

1. Memoir
2. Disaster Event
3. Social Science
4. Related to an Occupation
5. History
6. Feminism
7. Psychology
8. Medical Issue (incl. Mental Health)
9. Nature
10. True Crime
11. Science
12. Published in 2020

You then share your review with other challenge participants by posting your name/blog name and title of the book with a direct link to your review in the monthly Linky over at Book’d Out, which will be posted on the first Saturday of every month.

My last commitment is to the #6degrees of separation meme hosted by booksaremyfavouriteandbest and it too is a first Saturday of the month post. I started this one part way through this year and have really loved it.

In addition to these challenges, I hope to throw in a few buddy reads with my Page by Page Book Club which lives over at Facebook.

So, there you have it. Challenge plans laid. Each month I’ll aim to check in with my progress.

Happy New Year!

  1. The nonfic challenge sounds good but I think I’ll take it easy this year and only commit myself to two challenges – the international male author challenge with Amanda and continue with my own personal challenge which is that dreaded coffee table TBR pile, I aim to complete it this year, it’s a must or else….
