Book Blogger Confessions is a meme every 1st and 2nd Monday hosted by Karen from For What It’s Worth and the Midnyte Reader.
It’s where book bloggers “confess” and vent about topics that are unique to us.
Feel free to share, vent and offer solutions, and remember to visit For What It’s Worth or the Midnyte Reader for other confessions!
This week’s confession:
Reading Challenges: Do you host or join in any? What is your success rate on completing them? Do they keep your reading goals on track, put too many restrictions/pressure on you? What do you think makes for a successful reading challenge?
The only reading challenge I join is the Goodreads reading challenge, and that’s only to help track the number of books I read because you can glance at it very quickly and get an overview of what you’ve read. I feel other reading challenges would be too restrictive – I like a lot of freedom when I read. I have a lot of books I own I am trying to rocket my way through and I feel that taking part in a challenge like a Classics challenge or a debut authors challenge or even a challenge that picks which book to read next would be too restrictive on how I currently read and run this blog.
But I am doing Project Animorphs which is kind of like a challenge – to read and review the entire Animorphs series in a year on top of my regular reading and blogging. Does that count as a challenge?
