For the last 3 years, I’ve been participating in Goodreads reading challenge. This year is no exception, I’m doing the Goodreads reading challenge and setting my goal at 55 books. In 2015, I managed to read 54 books due to reading slump that hits me on January – June (is it a slump if it lasted 6 months? lol), so this year I’m aiming higher.
However, this year I also want to diversify my reading so I join the Book Riot read harder challenge. This challenge consists of 24 tasks and … I have to say that this will definitely be challenging to me, but that’s where the fun is at, right?
I also add two other reading goals, mostly for fun.
The first one is to read all Brandon Sanderson’s published works. If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you will definitely know that I’ve become mildly obsessed with his books. Originally, I thought this goal is going to be easy seeing that I’ve read many books of his. But NOPE. It turns out that this author has a total of 35 published works in the span of 10 years since Elantris (his first published novel). And there’s also the problem of The Wheel of Time.
The last goal is what I’ve been calling The Door-stopper Reading Challenge. Basically, you try to read as many door-stopper books as possible. I defined door-stopper books as books with 1000+ pages, but it cannot be a bundle or a collection of stories. This idea came to me because I am that person who takes into consideration the ratio of number of pages to price when buying a book. I know, I know, quantity doesn’t guarantee quality, but when I am in love with a book I don’t want it to ever end. I’m sure you know what I meant. So yes, door-stopper reading challenge.
Last, but not least, because this year I have a resolution to being more organized, I’m keeping tracks of all these goals (minus the GR challenge) on a special page HERE. I even made tables and all that.
Let me know, are you doing any reading challenge this year? What are they?
