Jan. 2020 Challenges Update ~ Part 2

Welcome to Part 2 of my January challenge updates! Yesterday I shared Part 1, which you can check out HERE.

Wizarding World Tour 2020 Reading Challenge

Read a book where a character breaks the law – Pretty Reckless by L.J. Shen
Read a book that contains a magical creature – A Heart So Fierce and Broken by Brigid Kemmerer
Read a book related to the cold – Winterwood by Shea Ernshaw
Read a book featuring diversity/inclusivity – The City of Brass by S.A. Chakraborty
Read a book that includes an animal – Josh & Hazel’s Guide to Not Dating by Christina Lauren

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!

The Air He Breathes by Brittainy C. Cherry
Josh & Hazel’s Guide to Not Dating by Christina Lauren
Pretty Reckless by L.J. Shen

That wraps up my first update on my 2020 Reading Challenges.

Are you making any progress on yours? Or do you avoid challenges like the plague?? LOL!

Happy Reading,
