#ReadHarder Challenge {The Year End Edition}

The only reading challenge I attempted this year was the Book Riot 2015 Read Harder Challenge.

They were times when I chose a book because it would match a category in the challenge, but more often than not, I read what I wanted and then looked to see if my choices could fit into the challenge … which is probably why I didn’t finish. But this was a good way to add diversity into my reading, and I plan on trying again next year.

Reading Challenges in 2016

Next year, the only reading challenge I’m doing is the one we’re hosting here – The 2016 Monthly Motif Reading Challenge.

Did you participate in any reading challenges in 2015? How many? How many are you signing up for in 2016?

  1. Ha! The way you describe doing the Read Harder Challenge is how I always do challenges too 🙂 Next year, I’m going to try actually use at least a few challenges to push myself out of my comfort zone, but I’ve not done that successfully in the past. I’m excited to check out your challenge 🙂

  2. I’ve signed up for one on the basis that it fits in with my reading plans of “read stuff off your tbr”. I’m making no list ahead of time, it just has to be in my possession before 1/1/2016. I aim to do60 this year, allowing for books that come into my possession after 1/1 and still be read

    I do not like reading challenges, because sometimes I feel pressurised into reading something. Sometimes I do set up small challenges for myself. Like for example I want to re read the classics next year (because it has been SO LONG and I cannot remember what happened in any of them) and also read some translated works. i just set very flexible challenges and if I do not happen to be in the mood to do it, I just ignore it. But I do agree challenges help you to stay more focused and accomplish resourceful reading
