Hi guys! It’s the end of 2016 and with the end of the year comes new reading challenges. If you know me or follow this blog you know that I love reading new adult. If you follow me you also know that I’ve tried to do the Popsugar Reading Challenge for 2 years straight and failed both times. One of the reasons is because some of the categories are completely out of my comfort zone. Because of that I decided to host a 2017 New Adult Reading Challenge. This means that in 2017 I’ll try to read as many new adult books as possible and you can join me if you want. Either you already love new adult or you want to start reading it you’re welcome to participate in this reading challenge. But before you decide either you want to participate or not let me explain how everything works.
Because I want people to have I have two different challenges you can participate and you can do only one of them or both if you want. The first challenge is to read as many new adult books you can in 2017. For that we’ll have categories with different goals you can achieve and you’ll even have a badge you can use wherever you want to show your progress throughout the year. So here are the categories for the 2017 New Adult Reading Challenge:
- NA Newbie – 6 books
- NA Initiate – 12 books
- NA Intermediate – 24 books
- NA Advanced – 36 books
- NA Expert – 50 books
- NA Queen/King (special category) – 100 books
As you can see we’ll have goals that we can all achieve. You might be looking to start reading more new adult and you might only read 6 books or you might read 100 new adult books in 2017 (and if you do, congrats to you because that’s amazing), it doesn’t matter. The only thing that matters is reading how many your comfortable with and having fun with this challenge.
If you prefer to do another kind of challenge or want to add something else don’t worry, I’ve got you covered because we’re also having a Reading Bingo. I’m pretty sure most of you have seen some reading bingos around the internet with different topics so while trying to make this a little bit more funny I decided to include a bingo with different categories (shout out to Cristina for suggesting me this and also for helping me every time I needed help with this). So basically we’re just going to try to fill the entire card with awesome books and you can share your progress throughout the year.
As you can see you have two options to participate in this challenge and you can do only of these or even the two. The decision is yours and you can do whatever you want.
To participate there are only a few steps you have to complete. Actually none of these is required but you can do it soI can see who’s doing the challenge and kind of stalk you when I have time XD. Here are the things you’ll have to do to participate:
- Sign up on the 2017 New Adult Reading Challenge
- Make post about the challenge sharing what challenge you’ll be doing and some of the books you want to read
- Share some of the books you want to read on other social media using #NAReads2017
- Share some updates throughout the year so we all can see how we are doing and so we can find other books to read
As you can see there are not a lot of things you have to do to participate in this because the main goal here is to have fun :D.
Because this is a Reading Challenge it’s also important that we talk about the books we’re reading and that we can help each other during 2017 so we can read awesome books. Because of that I’m planning on having at least three Twitter chats where we’ll be able to talk to each other, recommend some books and see how we’re doing with this challenge. The Twitter chats will happen in January, June and December (dates to be announced) on my Twitter account and we’ll be using the hashtag #NAReads2017 so we can see what everyone is saying and reading. I’ll try to tell you the date of the first Twitter chat as soon as possible.
This is it for the 2017 New Adult Reading Challenge. If you want to ask me anything about it or if you have any doubt you can ask it on the comments. I know I’ve been terrible with answering to comments but I’ll try to catch up soon and answer to all of your doubts. If you decide to participate in this challenge, thanks for being awesome and I hope you have a lot of fun while doing it 😀
P.S.: You can also sign up here if you want to 😀
