I know, I’m a little bit late with this post but nevermind. I’m going to do it anyway because it’s always fun to see, how my reading year was like. I set a few reading challenges last year, but I’m aware that I haven’t achieved many of them. It happens, ha.
I take challenges for fun and in some way they “force” me to read books that otherwise I would never read.
Like every year, this is the first goal that I set. I usually set my goal to read 50 books in one year, just like I did in 2016.
This year, I succeeded and I read 52 books. The last couple of months were stressful and hard and I really didn’t have much time to read. So I’m really happy that I reached my goal. Yay!
Reading challenge in Bralnica.
Bralnica is Slovenian forum for book lovers and every year they make a challenge consisting of 25 books with different topics. I will not translate all the challenges, I’ll just write the ones I haven’t done.
1. Read a book with color in title
2. Read a book which was published in a year of your birth
3. Read a book which is criticized by other readers
4. Read an LGTB book
5. Read a book where the main character is a singer
6. Read a book that was recommended to you by your relative
7. Read a book about the myth or a legend.
As you can see, I was not so successful. It was ok, I’m still pleased with it but I could read just a few books more. Some of those remaining challenges were not so hard.
2016 Classics Challenge
This one was my biggest failure. The Challenge is, to read a classic book every month. I tried, I really did. But… I only read 4 books. I know… It’s bad. I’ll be better next year, although Stacey from The Pretty Books blog won’t do this challenge anymore.
