The aim of this reading challenge, hosted by Bookish Lifestyle, is to read all the books you’ve been telling yourself you’ll read next time when you get a chance-this is your chance!
Anyone can enter and any book counts as long as it has been sitting on your shelf for some time. Short stories and novellas do count! The only stipulations that the book must have been released in 2015 or earlier. No 2016 ARCs or 2016 fresh-off-the-press releases are allowed.
On the last Monday of every other month there will be a chance to share wrap-up posts and there will be Read-A-Longs on the months that do not have wrap-ups, both of which are optional. There will also be giveaways running.
There are six different levels:
- A Firm Handshake (1-10 books)
- A Friendly Hug (11-20 books)
- First Kiss (21-30 books)
- Sweet Summer Fling (31-40 books)
- Could This Be Love? (41-50 books)
- Married with Children (50+ books)
This is a great challenge for me as I’ve currently got a huge TBR pile. This is mostly due to accepting way to many books for review last year, downloading lots of free kindle content and having family and friends spoil me for birthdays and Christmas. I now probably have more books than I could read in a lifetime and I’d really like to catch up with some of them next year before I buy any new ones.
I’m hoping I’ll be able to snatch a little reading time here and there while on maternity leave, but we shall see!
