#ReadingChallenge, Just for Fun, Reading Challenge

Goodreads Summer Reading Challenge Update!

Well it has to be said that I really did a bad job of this years Goodreads Summer Reading Challenge. I did much better with 2018’s Summer Reading Challenge where I could just read whatever book I fancied.

This year there were two sections of the reading challenge:

  • Section One: For Beginners
  • Section Two: Expert-Level Additions

Within these two Sections their were 21 different categories:

Section One For Beginners:

  1. Good as Gold: Read a book that won a Goodreads choice award
  2. The Book is Better: Read a book being adapted for TV or a Film this year
  3. Short & Sweet: Read a book with less than 100 pages (or a book you can finish in one sitting)
  4. On the Bandwagon: Read one of the “Most Read” books right now on Goodreads
  5. Actually Want to Read: Read a book that’s been on your want to read shelf for more than a year
  6. Not From Around Here: Read a book set in a different culture from your own
  7. In the Friend Zone: Read a book that a friend has recommended
  8. It Takes Two: Read a coauthor book
  9. Wheel of Format: Read a book in a format that you don’t normally read in (a graphic novel, poetry, a play, an audio book, etc)
  10. New Voices: Read a debut novel
  11. Past Love: Reread a book you loved when you were younger
  12. Armchair Traveller: Read a book set in a destination you want to visit

Section Two Expert-Level Additions:

  1. Stay Awhile: Read a book with more than 500 pages
  2. Stranger Than Fiction: Read a nonfiction book published this year
  3. Tongue-Tied: Read a translated book
  4. No Place Like Home: Read a book that appears in your Goodreads news feed
  5. Continental Drift: Read a book set on every continent
  6. Genre Explorer: Read a book from a genre you’ve never read before
  7. Reading Roulette: Read the third book you see on your “want to read shelf”
  8. Primary Reading: Read a book with a number or colour in the title
  9. Back to School: Read a book about a subject you don’t know much about
