Challenges for 2019

Posted December 31, 2018 by Marsha in Discussion Post / 0 Comments

I love seeing the new book related Challenges begin to show up around the beginning of December.  It usually gets me revved up for the coming year – but come June I’m shaking my head at myself and wondering how to get caught up on them.  It’s not that I don’t read the books for any of the Challenges I joined in back in December… it’s that I didn’t keep up with the link to the Linky thing, or update my Challenge post (or page).  Life happens and I give up trying to keep track.  Please tell me I’m not alone in this!  Please.

This year I’m going to divide and conquer those Challenges in a different fashion.

As some of you may know, Keeper Bookshelf is my main book review/book-related blog.  But it’s not the only blog I work on each week (or day, sometimes).  I have several other genres specific blogs that are smaller, by definition, but they showcase my other reading loves.  When I’m in the mood for a new book to pick up I visit the blogs that I know of that specifically talk about those books.  Often in a wide general fashion like Romance or Mystery… but still specific to what I’m in the mood for.  (If you’d like to visit any of my other blogs the links are in the sidebar.)

This year my accepted Challenges are going to be talked about on and linked to the specific blog of mine that they most are relevant to… and perhaps ensure that I actually officially finish these Challenges this time around.

For Keeper Bookshelf, I’m taking part in:

2019 Bookish Resolutions Challenge – this one will benefit all of my blogs, but it is specifically designed to help set goals for the coming year blog/review -wise and help us bloggers keep our heads in the game.  So, yeah, this is one I need.

2019 Alphabet Soup Reading Challenge – this is one I’ve wanted to do for some time now, and with the NetGalley reviews here, as well as my own reading it’s perfect for KB.

2019 Blog All About It – this one is perfect for me, and Anna’s letting us do a little twist of our own.  Love it.

2019 New Release Challenge – is back once again, and this fits just perfectly on KB, for many reasons… but for this Challenge, only those new release titles that I’ve bought will count (not counting the ARC copies on new releases)

I’m attempting to behave myself this year — and actually, use the Linky when necessary.  🙂  Happy Challenge Reading!
