This is my last list of reading challenges for 2012. For those of you who just love books and can’t get enough, one (or more) of these challenges is certain to spark your interest.
Last year I had such fun with the YA debut author challenge. I was introduced to quite a few brand new authors whom I hope to read more from. I will definitely be participating in The 2012 Debut Author Challenge sponsored by The Story Siren once again. You can find a list of 2012 debut authors at Good Reads.
Inspired by last year’s Debut Author Challenge, Shanyn at Chick Loves Lit wanted to continue supporting those new authors by hosting the Sophomore Reading Challenge. Any second YA book published by an author in 2012 counts toward this challenge. By signing up, you are automatically entered in a drawing and there will be other drwaing sthroughout the year. The 10 books are an easily attainable goal.
Tanya at Girl XOXO is hotsing the Reading the Awards Book Challenge. To particpate, you can read as few as 10 books which win awards in 2011. You don’t even have to read them in the next year; any books read and reviewed in 2011 or 2012 count toward your goal!
Like longer novels? The 2012 Mammoth Book Challenge, hosted by Darlene’s Book Nook is for you! With a minimum of only two books, pick up some novels and spend some time reading. Both adult and children’s books count, as long as they have at least 450 pages.
Do you prefer variety? Head over to Book’d Out and join The Eclectic Reader 2012 Challenge. Read at least ine book in each of the following categories: literary fiction, crime/mystery fiction, romantic fiction, historical fiction, young adult, fantasy, science fiction, non-fiction, horror, thriller/suspense, classic, and your favorite genre. All readers who complete the challenge are elligible to win an Amazon gift certificate.
Read a lot? Consider signing up for Book Chick City’s 100+ Books In A Year Reading Challenge 2012. Books from any genre count in this challenge.
While there are many other great reading challenges out there for 2012, I’m going to end mine with the 2012 ARC Reading Challenge hosted by So Many Precious Books, So Little Time. I’m challenging myself to write my reviews in a more timely fashion this year, with a minimum of one book a week.
