2017 Reading Challenges (+Video!)

Reading Challenges Graphic

Hi everyone! Today I wanted to share with you the reading challenges that I’ll be attempting in 2017! This page will serve as my sign-up post for all these challenges, but I will be keeping track of my progress for the challenges on my Reading Challenges page.

Goodreads Challenge

Hosted by: Goodreads
My goal: 80 books

I’ll be doing the Goodreads Challenge again this year. In 2016, I set a goal of 60 books, and I surpassed that by around 20 books! Of course, I read a LOT of manga and graphic novels this past year, so I think that’s why I was able to surpass my goal by so many. Because I’m a seriously slow reader. Anyway, as of the time I’m writing this post, Goodreads hasn’t made the 2017 challenge available, but I plan on attempting 80 books in 2017. If I can read 80 books 2 years in a row, I think I’ll try for 100 in 2018!

Pages Read Challenge

Hosted by: Book Dragon’s Lair
My goal: Bonsai level: 12,000 pages

These levels are a bit far apart, I think! I know I can hit 12,000 pages but the next level up is 24,000 pages, and I don’t think I can double what I got this past year (around 13,000 pages)! I do think I can get closer to 15,000 though, so that’s my personal goal. As far as the challenge goes, though, I’m just going for that first level of 12,000 pages.

Hosted by: My Reader’s Block
My goal: Mount Blanc level: 24 books off my shelves

With this challenge, you try to read as many books off your own shelves that you bought in previous years. In 2016 I got SO MANY books from the library that I got nowhere near my goal for this challenge. But maybe in 2017 I’ll get there!

Diversity Bingo 2017


Hosted by: @novelparadise @headinherbooks @thesebooklions @thebooksbuzz @rhaegardied

My goal: As many as possible

So for this challenge, I don’t think there’s a sign up page. But the goal is to read one book for each square in 2017. I’ve been wanting to do a diversity challenge, and this one looks very cool!

So those are all the challenges I’m participating in for 2017. And since I started bullet journaling this past year, I decided to incorporate these challenges into my bullet journal. Here’s a video all about the modules I made for these challenges!

What reading challenges are you participating in in 2017?

    Love all the challenges!! And your video is awesome. I have a bullet journal… but I have crappy handwriting, so I’m not using it much. My niece is drawing me a bunch of book spines in mine so I can use it as a Books Read in 2017 tracker, and I got some cool stencils so hopefully 2017 will be the year of my bullet journal. I probably need to get some fancy pens that will make my handwriting look better, and I probably need to devote sometime to improving it.

    I’m doing the Goodreads challenge, along with an A-Z challenge on Litsy- although I’m accepting both the book title or author’s name in mine. I’m also doing the Modern Mrs. Darcy challenges, States challenge and Pop Sugar. Phew!
