I have mentioned in the past that I am challenge challenged. Other than the Goodreads Reading Challenge I don’t bother joining any these days. It becomes an epic fail and feel like a loser.
Basically, if I’m reading 100’s of dystopian/YA/Debut Authors etc a year and I join a challenge for those books I then have ZERO desire to read them anymore.
But two things changed my mind about joining the 2016 Blogger Shame Review Challenge, hosted by Herding Cats & Burning Soup and Addicted to Happily Ever After.
1.) I had already had the goal of reading the older, neglected books on my shelf in 2016. But as we established above that’s not enough incentive – in fact joining the challenge to read my old books would make me NOT want to read my old books! Yikes– I’m so complicated! lol
Which leads me to…
2.) The challenge button. This is my incentive. I ADORE this button and I want to use it as many times as possible.
See! Look a the cuteness!!
Here are the general details (check out Anna’s post for full deets – link above)
Challenge begins Jan 1, 2016 and ends Dec 31, 2016
All review books that have been on your review list for 6+ months count.
Any book format counts.
Crossovers with other challenges are okay.
You pick the number of books for your individual challenge.
Once a quarter there will be a wrap up post to show off progress!
(sign up post--now through jan or whenever you join)
quarter 1 post--end of March
quarter 2 post--end of June
quarter 3 post--end of September
quarter 4 post--end of Dec wrap up post
And incentives (which I don’t need because I just want the button lol)
There will be four giveaways. One each quarter.
Each review you complete during that quarter and link up will enter you into a gift card giveaway!
Here are the books I hope to read for the challenge.
I’m using a two tiered system so I don’t get overwhelmed and freak out.
The first pic are the books I really want to read but just haven’t gotten to yet - and to me – would complete the challenge.
The second pic is of books I would like to read but no pressure…
Wish this challenge challenged blogger luck!
