2019 Reading Challenges

Happy 2019 everyone!! I hope the new year treats you well.


I’ve signed up to a few reading challenges for the new year to help me tackle my TBR. I use Goodreads to track most of my challenges so you won’t see them here but I’ve included links.

Goodreads Challenge – 80 Books

I decided to read less than usual this year because I want to focus more on creating instead of spending all of my spare time reading. I would normally read about 100 books in a year and this year I’m aiming for 80. I must be the only book blogger trying to read less πŸ˜…

The Pagemaster – 4 to 6 Series

The aim of this challenge is to complete series I’ve already started. I’m terrible for starting series and never finishing them. I would be delighted if I managed to complete 6 series in 2019.

Cover Love – 61 to 100 Books

This challenge is kind of like a treasure hunt where you have to find items on books covers. The listed items include things such as a coffee cup, sword, boots and bats. Thinking about it now it’s amazing how many books just have people on the cover so this one might actually be tricky.

Mt. TBR 2019 – 20 Books

For this challenge you can only read books added to your TBR before Jan 2019. I plan on only reading books that I already own and not include ones that I added to my wishlist during the year. There are a bunch of different tasks to help you narrow down what books to read.

Historical Fiction Reading Challenge 2019 Elaine Howlin Literary Blog

Historical Fiction Reading Challenge – 25 Books

I’m tracking this one here on my blog. I really enjoy historical fiction but don’t read nearly enough so I’d like to up my count this year. I have some books I’d like to read listed in my announcement post.


Those are all of the year long challenges I’ve signed up to for 2019. I will be doing monthly, 3 month and 6 month ones as well cause I am crazy for reading challenges!!

Are you taking part in any reading challenges this year?
