(Even More) Reading Challenges for 2012

Because I haven't even begun to over-extend myself, I have decided to participate in three...that's right Four more reading challenges. Luckily, most of these challenges overlap so I won't be a complete and total social recluse as I lock myself into quiet rooms to read for hours on end.

The good old Goodreads Reading Challenge! I am truly challenging myself this year by trying to read 300 books. I'm going to say that it's a pretty reasonable amount when I have read over 150 books in the less than 6 months I've been blogging about them. We will see though...I'm probably just crazy and will fail epically...but cheers for going big! :)

Another challenge that I found is a really cool one...at least to me. It's called the European Reading Challenge 2012! The Challenge is hosted by Rose City Reads, and basically you tour Europe via novels! There are multiple levels of participating and I plan on being a 5 Star (Deluxe Entourage) tourist, with a side of Agrotourismo, Youth Hostel, and Culture Vulture. You won't know what any of that means, but its a fabulous and  fun challenge and if you wanna learn more or participate head over to RCR and sign up!

I'm also participating in the Witches and Witchcraft Reading Challenge hosted by Melissa's Eclectic Bookshelf! I will participate as a Crone (16-20) because I already have a crap ton of witchy books on my TBR pile. I need some good re-reads like the Sweep series too... If you like the paranormal or witches try to challenge yourself this year by participating! My favorite witches are Kelley Armstrong's Savannah Levine and Paige Winterburn so give them a chance if you're already participating...
The Final (maybe) challenge I'm planning on participating in this year is the 2012 ABC Reading Challenge! This year the challenge is hosted by Gripped Into Books, Cicely Loves Books and Book Geek Central.  I was participating unofficially last year, and the only letters I left out were Y and X! I was so close!!! This year, I'm going to officially participate AND I'm starting off with both Z and X this week! BAM! That way the only one I'll probably have trouble with is Y...where's Gilderoy Lockhart's Year with the Yeti when you need it???


  1. Thanks for signing up for the European Reading Challenge!

    I look forward to seeing which books you pick, especially if you decide to go on any of the side trips.

  2. So glad that you are joining my Witchy Challenge!! Here's to a fun year!!

  3. If you have any suggestions for books begginning with 'X' can you refer them to me, I need to find one to read for teh ABC challenge too. MAy also need help with 'Z'.

    Good luck with all your challenges, hope you make your 300. I'm aiming for 200 this year. :D

  4. Hey Bex!

    Yeah, the only one I can reccommend for "X" is XVI...It's pretty popular so you might have already read it.

    As for "Z" I thought Z for Zacharia was really good. It's older, but it's written just as good if not better than most dystopian novels out right now!

  5. Yay! I am also doing the Witches and Witchcraft Challenge. :)

    I am doing six challenges this year. Whew. I'm tired just thinking about it.

  6. I can't do reading challenges... I can't keep up, lol

  7. I joined the European Reading Challenge as well and I'm browsing a little through the participant's list.
    It's a really cool challenge to me as well :). And I'm so interested in what everyone is reading for it. So I will come back to your blog to learn more. Happy Reading!
