2014 Reading Challenges

As 2013 comes to a close, it’s time to start prepping for 2014. I’ve been book blogging since earlier this year and (insanely) have not paid much attention to reading challenges across the blogosphere. However, with a new year comes new goals and it struck me that reading challenges were perfect ways to set bookish goals! Since it will be my first year participating in these challenges (with the exception of the Goodreads one), I probably won’t be too ambitious so pardon my not-so-high expectations.



“Welcome to the 2014 Sequel & Prequel Challenge, hosted by Novel Heartbeat and Writer Grrl Reads!  This year’s challenge is an expansion on the 2013 Sequel challenge.  We’ve compared our unbelievably long series TBR lists and come to the conclusion that we need a bit of extra help knocking those sequels of our TBRs and we’re sure that a few of you have the same problem!

The goal: To read as many prequels and sequels as you can. You set your goal at whatever number works for you.”

I’m doing this challenge just for the fun of seeing how many sequels & prequels I can read in 2014.

Goal: Amateur (25-50 points)

Hosted by Coffee Bean Bookshelf, this reading challenge encourages readers who always seem to look forward too much to new books (like me) to read more of the good oldies. Basically, any book read in 2014 but published before 2014 would be counted.

Since we get to pick our own goals for this challenge, I’m going with at least 35 books by the end of 2014!

Monthly Keyword

Hosted by Bookmark To Blog, I joined this challenge purely because it sounded so fun! Each month, participants need to read at least one book which title includes or have a variation of the keywords provided for that particular month.

I shall aim to accomplish 10 out of the 12 months in 2014 for this one.

Hopefully, I can achieve all the goals I’ve set for these challenges. Have you signed up for any reading challenges in 2014?
