It’s time once again for Connect Five Friday, hosted at Book Date by Kathryn – the meme where we share five book/reading things that connect in some way.
I love reading challenges and I participate in a number of them. I’m still trying to finish some of them but hope to by the end of December. I love the challenge of finding a book that meets criteria for categories from at least a couple of the challenges. And, I have read many books that I normally never would, leading to finding new authors I now enjoy.
Many of these challenges are already posting their new challenges for 2022. Here are 5 I hope to participate in. Why not join in the fun? (Popsugar is my favourite challenge but they normally don’t post their new version til December.)
52 Books 52 Weeks.
I’ve done this for a number of years now and really like the variety in their categories. They now have their own blog – here.
Check here for their guide which even gives suggestions for each of the 52 categories.
While I was Reading 2022 Reading Challenge
This is hosted by Ramona Mead and has 12 categories.
Beyond the Bookends Reading Challenge 2022
Each month they post a different genre or category. Another fun one. Check here.
Memoir Reading Challenge 2022
They provide a list of options and you read as many memoirs as you want, with a minimum 5 to participate. Check here.
Diversify Your Reading Challenge 2022
Again, this is a monthly challenge, with a new genre posted each month.
There are several other challenges although I am not sure I will participate. They look to be quite challenging:
Booklist Queen 2022 – 52 books to read
The Nerdy Bookworm 50 Books a Year Reading Challenge
There are a few places which give a master list of challenges for the year.
GirlXOXO provides a very complete list of challenges but it hasn’t started yet.
Janie Ghione has been posting about the coming 2022 reading challgenes for several weeks now. Cheek here other challenges I haven’t posted about.
Also, look here–this pages lists the challenges as they become available.
And I have links to the challenges in my blog participation posts.
I do believe you are book challenge Queen so I wish you lots of enjoyment fulfilling these book challenges next year.
Thanks Kathryn. Got a chuckle from that – being retired has been the best thing for my reading.
Hi there, please change my last name to Mead under my While I Was Reading Challenge. Thanks for including me!
So sorry Ramona – I do know your name – will do it asap. I love your challenge.
