2017 READING CHALLENGES
What can I say? I’m making up for not participating in Challenges when I was on my LOA!
Welcome to the 2017 New to Me Reading Challenge!
This challenge is all about pushing your boundaries and trying something new! And author, a series, a subgenre, etc.
Anything “new” to you. For example…
–First time reading an author
–first book in a series
–first book you’ve read from a series (doesn’t have to be book one)
–first time trying a genre/subgenre
–a debut book from an author (even if you’ve read them before)
*books need to be over 80 pages
All books counted must be electronic – I don’t care if they’re kindle, pdf, nook, etc.
The ebook in question must have an ISBN or equivalent. If you can buy it or borrow it, it counts.
You can list your books in advance or as you read them. You can also change your list.
Any genre or length of book counts.
Anyone can join, you don’t need to be a blogger, just let me know in the comments.
Reviews are good but not necessary. Once again, you don’t need to be a blogger, there are lots of places to post reviews. Hopefully, they’ll link up so we can read them.
You may move up a level but not down.
Crossovers for other challenges count
Books started before January 1st, 2017 don’t count – unless you start over 😉
bit – 1 book
Byte – 10 books
Megabyte – 25 books
Gigabyte – 50 books
Terabyte – 75 books
Petabyte – 100 books
Empty the Cloud – 101+ books
. . . yeah, this look good.
Since I am doing the Alphabet Soup Challenge for Books/Titles, I thought it would be fun to do an Author A-Z. This is a personal challenge since I haven’t found a group one as of yet.
You can read any book that is from the mystery/suspense/thriller/crime genres. Any sub-genres are welcome as long as they incorporate one of these genres.
You don’t need a blog to participate but you do need a place to post your reviews to link up. (blog, goodreads, booklikes, shelfari, etc.)
Make a goal post and link it back here with your goal for this challenge.
Books need to be novellas or novels, please no short stories. (At least 100 pages +)
Crossovers into other challenges are fine.
The Challenge will be from Jan. 1st to Dec. 31st. (Sign up ends April 15th)
There will be a monthly link up so that others can check out your progress and look at your reviews. At the halfway mark and at the end we will have a giveaway for those participating.
If you tweet about your progress or reviews please use the hashtag #2017CloakDaggerChal so others can see it.
5-15 books – Amateur sleuth
16-25 books – Detective
26-35 books – Inspector
36 – 55 – Special agent
56+ books – Sherlock Holmes
I am guilty! So I thought that maybe if I signed up for this Challenge it would make me feel even more guilty and read at least 3 past review books that are currently sitting in my Kindle and bookcase.
Yes. We’re hanging our heads in some blogger-girl shame. lol
The Blogger Shame challenge is a cheeky way to admit our guilt…and go about fixing it. Tackling those review books that have slipped through the cracks over the years. Any review book over 4 months past due is game!
Any review book that is 4+ months PAST DUE.
Yep. Only OLD review requests that have slipped through the cracks count.
Any format, any length.
Number of books tackled is entirely up to you!
Minimum…1 review book.
