2020 Reading Challenges I’m Participating In ~ Part 2

I finally narrowed down the next 5 challenges I plan on tackling in 2020. Is it bad that I want to do them all??? If you missed the Part 1 of this post, check it out HERE.

Wizarding World Tour 2020 Reading Challenge

I learned about this challenge from my bestie and occasional blog partner, Anna. This challenge has a lot of prompts taking you through the different wizarding schools from Harry Potter. It’s awesome and I can’t wait to start!! You have to be a part of the HPOOTP-Flourish and Blotts group on FB to participate in this one.

The Rory Gilmore Reading Challenge

I have currently read 24 of the 339 books on the list. My goal is to ultimately read them all, but I certainly don’t expect to get that done this year. I just hope to make some progress.

Library Love

 Library Love Challenge is hosted by Angel’s Guilty Pleasures & Books of My Heart. 

Here are the Levels:

  • Dewey Decimal: Read 12 books
  • Thrifty Reader: Read 24 books
  • Overdrive Junkie: Read 36 books
  • Library Addict: Read 48 books
  • Library Card on Fire: Read 60+ books

I’ll start with the Dewey Decimal level and just see how I progress from there. I will for sure progress beyond the lowest level, but I really don’t have a clue how many library books I read in a year. I want to track that, though, and this’ll help motivate me to keep up with that.

2020 Newbery Reading Challenge

I’m participating in this challenge more to motivate my kids to pick up some of these books this year. If I’m reading them, then they’ll be a lot more likely to want to read them, too. And there are still a lot of them that I haven’t read yet myself.

These are the levels you can choose from ~

  • L’Engle: 15 – 29 points
  • Spinelli: 30 – 44 points
  • Avi: 45 – 59 points
  • Lowry: 60 – 74 points
  • Konigsburg: 75+ points

Once again, I’ll be going for the lowest level, and I’ll just progress from there as possible.


Beat the Backlist 2020

Any genre, any format, any length.
Any book published in 2019 or earlier is fair game.
Re-reads count. And you don’t have to own the book!

This is all about encouraging me to knock down books already sitting on my TBR published in 2019 or earlier. Here’s a link to my TBR on Goodreads. I like that there are little bonus activities to go along with this challenge. I’m still checking them all out!

Are you participating in any challenges in 2020? I’d love to hear which ones! I think the only other challenge that I’m for sure committing to is, of course, the Goodreads challenge. I haven’t yet decided on how many books to go for yet, though.

Happy Reading,

  2. This post reminded me that I wanted to start working my way through the Rory Gilmore list in 2020. I know I’ve read some of them but I can’t remember how many. Thanks for the reminder and good luck with all of your challenges.
