2019 Reading Challenges


My goal every year is to read more books. However, life always gets in the way and would redirect my focus to something else – things that usually mess with my sanity. But now, I am really determined to keep up with my readings.

Last year, I joined a few reading challenges and I failed on all of them. I am really hoping to fix that and make up with all the time I wasted on stupid things instead of reading. So, I scoured the internet and found some reading challenges that hopefully will motivate me to read more this year.

But first, here are the ones I actually joined to last year and they have it again this year:

 Goodreads Reading Challenge


I had been joining the Goodreads Reading Challenge since 2015. There is no task or category you need to follow. You just need to decide how many books you think you can read the whole year and try to complete that.

 2019 Beat the Backlist


This challenge focused in reading the books that have been in your TBR for a while. You set the number of books and what books they are. Just make sure the books are released prior to 2019. There is also a mini challenge that comes along with it but is optional.

 Netgalley & Edelweiss Reading Challenge


This one is for those who like to request eARCS via Netgalley and Edelweiss. Any genre, release date, etc. will do. So, if you have a pile of them on your Kindle or they haven’t expired yet on your Aldiko, then better start reading them.

 2019 New Release Challenge


For this challenge, books you read need to be released in the year 2019. There’s no checklist but instead levels. The number of new releases you read corresponds to a level. The more books you read, the higher your level.

And now, here are the new ones that I found:

 2019 Dystopia Reading Challenge


With this challenge, all you have to do is read books that have a dystopian theme. There are challenge levels and when you complete the number of books that corresponds to them you will receive a badge.

 Mental Health Reading Challenge 2019


You read any books depicting mental health whether fiction or non-fiction. No levels involved. Just read as many books as you like.

 For The Love of EBooks 2019 Reading Challenge


Books you read must be in ebook format. That includes the ones you have purchased or got for free on Kindle, eARCS you have requested and got approved of, and other downloaded ebooks (just make sure it’s legal).

 Print Only 2019 Reading Challenge


Books must be a physical book. It can be in hard cover, paperback or mass paperback. As long as it’s something you can touch, smell, and flip the pages.

 2019 Contemporary Romance Reading Challenge


Read as many contemporary romance novels. It can be young adult, new adult, or adult. Just be sure its a work of fiction. The characters can be heterosexuals or homosexuals so it’s a bit more realistic.

 The Bad Boys of Romance Reading Challenge


Books you read must feature a bad boy hero such as rock stars, street fighters, mafias, etc. I think this heavily revolves around the romance/erotica genre.
