Reading Challenges

As you all know I am attempting the Goodreads Reading Challenge this year, and I hope to read a grand total of 50 books by the 31st December 2016.  I am a self-confessed book addict, but even for me this is a tall ask when I have a job, 2 children, a husband and a cat all vying for my attention.  I am however, giving it my best shot.

Whilst working my way through my rather large reading list, I regularly get distracted by other book challenges – mainly ones I discover on Pinterest (I am easily distracted and I do love Pinterest).  So I have decided to incorporate one of these challenges into my Goodreads Reading Challenge just to see if I can do it.  My chosen challenge is as follows;

  • A book with more than 500 pages
  • A classic romance
  • A book that became a movie
  • A book published this year
  • A book with a number in the title
  • A book written by someone under 30
  • A book with non-human characters
  • A funny book
  • A book by a female author
  • A mystery or thriller
  • A book with a one-word title
  • A book of short stories
  • A book set in a different country
  • A non-fiction book
  • A popular author’s first book
  • A book from an author you love but haven’t read yet
  • A book a friend recommended
  • A Pulitzer prize-winning book
  • A book based on a true story
  • A book at the bottom of your to-read list
  • A book your mum loves
  • A book that scares you
  • A book more than 100 years old
  • A book based entirely on its cover
  • A book you were supposed to read at school but didn’t
  • A memoir
  • A book you can finish in a day
  • A book with antonyms in the title
  • A book set somewhere you’ve always wanted to visit
  • A book that came out the year you were born
  • A book with bad reviews
  • A trilogy
  • A book from your childhood
  • A book with a love triangle
  • A book set in the future
  • A book set in high school
  • A book with a colour in the title
  • A book that made you cry
  • A book with magic
  • A graphic novel
  • A book by an author you’ve never read before
  • A book you own but have never read
  • A book that takes place in your home town
  • A book that was originally written in a different language
  • A book set during Christmas
  • A book written by an author with your same initials
  • A play
  • A banned book
  • A book based on or turned into a tv show
  • A book you started but never finished

This is a fairly scary looking challenge, although I should be able to start ticking some of these off soon – I shall keep you updated on my progress! Have you tried a reading challenge? How did you get on?
