In the past, I have taken part of the Debut Author Challenge. I do love that challenge, but I’ve found that it is often difficult for me to keep up with. I’m not crazy about buying books that I haven’t read previously and often the library doesn’t have a lot of the debut books I want to read, so that has made it harder. If you aren’t aware of that challenge, it involves reading one book a month by a debut author. I’ve found some great books through this challenge, and I think I will try to informally take part. However, after two years in which I only managed about 6 months of this challenge I’m taking a break.
When I was on twitter, the Uppercase Reading Challenge popped up. Uppercase is a subscription book box service. I don’t personally use it, but I do follow their account. I saw their challenge graphic and decided that I’m going to give it a try this year!
I like that there are 10 challenges and they’re not timed. It takes a little bit of the pressure off and in fact, I will have already checked off two of these challenges by the end of January!
I think every 3 months I will do an update on how my challenge progress is going. I’m sure here will be times where I knock off multiple ones in a month, and other times where I won’t even touch one. I also like this this is similar to the PopSugar book challenge but not nearly as overwhelming.
Well… that’s about it! Just wanted to update you guys so, wise me luck!
