2020 Reading Challenges


We're only a few days away from 2020 guys, which means one thing and one thing only: READING CHALLENGES. I've done reading challenges almost as long as I've been book blogging with various degrees of success. I'm very happy to say that I'll be doing reading challenges in 2020 too, and I'm already excited to start them. Let me show you which ones I'm signing up to. And remember, if you have any good reading challenges that you think I should sign up to, share them in the comments and I'll check them out! Without further ado, here's the reading challenges I plan on doing in 2020.


2020 Reading Challenges



2020 Audiobook Challenge


The 2020 Audiobook Challenge is hosted by Melanie @ Hot Listens and Kimberly @ Caffeinated Reviewer. It's my second time doing this challenge, and I've had so much fun diving into audiobooks. This year the challenge has 8 levels, which is awesome! Since I know a good chunk of my reading will be done by audio, I'll do myself a favor and pick the 8th level, called The 100 Club (Audiobook Elite) 100+. My goal is to read at least 100 audiobooks. I'm confident!

 NetGalley and Edelweiss Reading Challenge 2020

*This challenge was created by Emily@Falling for YA, then moved to Katrina@Bookish Things & More (site no longer available) and now it resides at Reading Between the Pages.

There's no need to explain this, guys. I've never made it a secret that I have a problem with requesting way too many books on Netgalley and Edelweiss so of course I'm going to sign up to this challenge. The goal is to finally get to that 80% ratio on Netgalley. I'll start small though, with the Silver level. That's 25 books.

Romanceopoly 2020 Participant



Romance-opoly is hosted by the ladies from Under The Covers and Jessica from Peace Love Books. This is my second time participating and I am excited. Last year I had a hard time reading the books for this challenge because I'm a huge mood reader and sometimes my mood didn't match the challenge I got. This year I'm going to take the Direct Route, which means that you go around the Romanceopoly board in order, which I feel will be much easier. This year the are two sets of challenges (Moon and Sun) and three levels. I'm going to pick THE ADVENTURER level and go from there. This means 39 books. I'll try to go back and forth between challenge packs and if I am inspired, I'll push for the next level, which is The Native.

  #StartOnYourShelfathon Reading Challenge


The #StartOnYourShelfathon challenge is hosted by the wonderful CW from The Quiet Pond. This reading challenge actually started on December 18th 2019. The rule is very simple: read any unread book you have on your shelf, physical or digital. I have a ton of books that deserve my love, time and attention, so I was very excited for this challenge. CW hasn't set any challenges, which is both awesome and scary, I'm going to start small, so I'll aim for 13 books, one for each month this challenge will be going on for.

 Reading The 20s Reading Challenge by Ruby's Books


I did a thing! I was searching for a 20s themed reading challenge and I couldn't find one, so I decided to make my own. I've been meaning to expand my wings with my reading a bit more, and I thought it would be fun to see how literature changed over the years. I'm going to follow only one rule, and that is to read at least one book published in the 1920s a month. Since I'm relying mostly on freebies and public domain books, I'm thinking most of the books I'll read will have been published between 1920 and 1924, so if you know any good books published then (or freebies from later years), please share. I also want to mention that I plan on reading mostly women authors. The only exception being The Great Gatsby, because Kal told me to read it and what Kal says, it goes. I'll have a Goodreads list coming up soon and I'll mention in on my Twitter and Facebook accounts, so stay tuned. Let me know if you want to join in with me, and I'll do a proper sign up post.

0 / 12 Books. 0% done!





The Beat The Backlist challenge is hosted by NovelKnight. Unlike the previous years I'm not going to sign up to any of the teams, because we've already established that I am absolutely horrible with reading books from a TBR and I don't know when the mood to read one of the books from that list will hit me. I'm going to keep last year's Goodreads shelf for this challenge, I'm not going to add anything to it. Much like I'm planning on doing for most of my more difficult challenges, I'm aiming to read at least 12 books for this challenge.

Other challenges


Aside from these challenges, I'll be doing the Goodreads challenge, like I always do. I'll again aim towards 200 books and I have a good feeling about 2020, so this should be something I'll be able to do.

I'm also going to keep following the general guidelines of the New Authors reading challenge hosted in the past by Literary Escapism. The site hasn't been updated since January 2019, and I don't know if the ladies behind if are going to come back to it or if they're going to host the challenge this year. Either way, I'm still going to aim to read as many new to me authors as possible. As with every year I've done this, my goal is at least 100 authors, so we'll see how I'll do.

What about you guys? Which reading challenges are you signing up to?
