Rockin' and Rollin' With 2021 Reading Challenges

I love reading challenges, but historically I have not done well with actually completing them.  In 2020, I actually finished six of the eight I signed up for—go me!  I'm still riding that high, so this year I'm going for broke and doing eight again.  We'll see how I do.  As always, I'll be keeping track of my challenge progress on the right sidebar of my blog. 

These are the challenges I'm tackling:

1.  2021 Children's Historical Fiction Reading Challenge


I'm hosting this challenge, which encourages participants to read historical fiction written for children (including teens) by fulfilling 20 reading prompts.  You can get all the information on this challenge and sign up here.



I love historical fiction of all kinds, so I'm excited for this one.  I'm going to aim for the "Prehistoric" level by reading 50+ historical novels.  You can get all the information on this challenge and sign up here.


I signed up for this 52-prompt challenge halfway through last year, so I didn't complete the 2020 version, although I did finish about 70% of the prompts.  I'm aiming for 100% this year.  You can get all the information on this challenge and sign up here.



This annual challenge features 40 prompts, with an additional 10 for an "Advanced" experience.  Naturally, I plan to do all 50 like I did in 2020.  What can I say?  I'm a glutton for punishment!  You can get all the information on this challenge here.  No sign up is required. 



Although I do this challenge every year, 2020 was the first year I actually completed it.  It's a fun one, so I'm doing it again in 2021.  The aim is to read one book set in every state, plus D.C.  You can get all the information on this challenge and sign up here.



If you enjoy mysteries, this is a morbid but fun challenge.  You read murder mysteries, keep track of the body count, and earn points for every corpse you add to the morgue.  You can get all the information on this challenge and sign up here.



I've been enjoying cozy mysteries lately, so I'm going to take on this one as well.  There are different levels.  I'm going to play it safe and go with the lowest one, "Peckish," which requires reading 25 cozies.  Shouldn't be too tough.  I hope.  You can get all the information on this challenge and sign up here.


Think you can read 52 books in 52 weeks?  Then this is the challenge for you!  It has 52 prompts to fulfill by the end of the year.  You can get all the information on this challenge and sign up here.

Think I can do complete all these?  I do.  Which challenges are you excited about this year?  If you're still looking for 2021 challenges, don't forget to check out my Ready for a Reading Challenge blog.  If you're hosting a challenge that you don't see listed over there, please let me know so I can get it in my database.  Wish me luck with my reading challenges and best of luck with yours!

  4. We have a number of overlapping challenges, which is great as we can share our recommendations for each one!

  5. I never really read to reading challenges, because it interferes with my mood reading, but sometimes I like to look them up toward the end of the year (or season) and see how much I completed by happenstance. I will keep these in mind!

    Lmao @ the Medical Examiner Mystery Challenge point system, that's amazing (where else can you "earn points for every corpse you add to the morgue"?? Unless there is like a super elite Underground Murderers Club. ...I would read that book)
    I don't read enough murder mysteries to make a dent in this challenge, but I'm excited to see how other people do.

    P.S. Finishing the full PopSugar challenge?? Wow!

Comments make me feel special, so go crazy! Just keep it clean and civil. Feel free to speak your mind (I always do), but be aware that I will delete any offensive comments.

P.S.: Don't panic if your comment doesn't show up right away. I have to approve each one before it posts to prevent spam. It's annoying, but it works!
