In case you haven't picked up on it by now, I love a reading challenge! Since I posted a couple of weeks ago about how there were a bunch of challenges I wanted to sign up for, a few more have been posted that I wanted to sign up for that I couldn't resist, so why not!
For the Love of YA, the 2011 Young Adult Reading Challenge sounds like a good one for me. This year I discovered a new love for the YA genre and just dipped my toe in it so I'd like to see how much more of it I can read in 2011. I'll be signing up for the Mini YA Reading Challenge Level which challenges you to read 12 YA books in 2011.
Caribous Mom is hosting the 2011 Chunkster Reading Challenge. A chunckster is classified as an adult literature book (fiction or nonfiction) of 450 pages or more. Once you pick a level you can't change and audiobooks and e-books don't count. This challenge runs from Feb. 1, 2011 - Jan. 31. 2012. I am going to sign up for the Chubby Chunkster level which challenges me to read 4 tomes. Considering last year I read 9 books over 450 pages and I have quite a few more on my shelves I've been hoping to read that fit into this category this should be a breeze.
So Many Precious Books, So Little Time is hosting the 2011 ARC Reading Challenge. ARC stands for Advanced Reader Copy and I have a huge pile of these to read and am constantly getting more so when I saw a challenge based on these, this seemed like an easy one for me to sign up for. I am going to sign up for Level Bronze which is 12. I think I will read more than that but I am not sure I will read 24 which is the next level. Who knows though, we'll have to wait and see!
Historical Fiction Challenge 2011 has returned! I really enjoyed this in 2010, doubling the amount I'd set up to read so when I saw that Historical Tapestry was going to host it, I jumped at the chance to sign up. Historical Fiction is one of my favorite genres and I always wish I read more at the end of each year. I'm going to sign up for the Struggling the Addiction Level which challenges me to read 10 books. By the way, how beautiful is that button?
Bloggiesta hosted by Maw Books Blog and I'm glad to see it's coming back January 21st - 23rd. For those of you who don't know it's a great time to work on your blog and make those much needed improvements you've been meaning to make but never find the time to. It's also a fantastic time to learn a bunch of stuff from other fabulous experienced bloggers out there and find a great sense of community so, yeah I can't wait!
Bring on the challenges!
