Too Many Reading Challenges? No Such Thing!

One last post for the day...I promise! 

You all know how much I adore my reading challenges. I love seeing new ones pop up this time of year. There are so many great ones out there for 2022; believe you me, I wanted to join them all! I managed to limit myself to *just* ten. Before you all stage an intervention, recognize that the first five aren't all that challenging because they encompass what I usually read and track anyway. The last five, though? Well, we'll see how I do.

1.  2022 Literary Escapes Challenge hosted by Lori @Escape With Dollycas Into a Good Book

This is probably my favorite challenge ever, so I do it every year. It requires reading one book set in each of the 50 U.S. states, plus D.C. You also get points for reading books set in other countries.

Since I rocked this challenge so hard this year, I'm going to join at the highest level once again. I'm going "Prehistoric" by pledging to read 50+ books.

I'm still enjoying my cozy reading, although I didn't read as many as I wanted to in 2021. For 2022, I'm going to join at the "Peckish" level once again. That involves reading 1-25 cozies, so that shouldn't be too tough.

I always enjoy doing this yearly challenge, so I'm signing up again. Let's see if I can beat 11th place in 2022!

I'm not sure why I've never joined this annual challenge before since it's right up my alley. All you have to do is read mystery books (including suspense/thriller/crime, etc.). Easy peasy! I'm joining at the highest level—Sherlock Holmes (naturally)—which requires you to read 56+ mystery books.

This challenge requires you to read books from 52 different reading prompts. There are lots of fun ones this year.

I'm super excited for this one, which requires reading books by Australian authors. There's even a lucrative prize for the person who posts the most reviews of books that fit the challenge requirements! I can always use book money, so I'm going to go for the "Emu" level. It's described as follows: Read and review 24 books written by Australian Authors of which at least 10 of those authors are female, at least 10 of those authors are male, and at least 10 of those authors are new to you; Fiction or non-fiction, at least 4 different genre. Sounds fun!

8.  2022 Nonfiction Reader Challenge hosted by Shelleyrae @Book'd Out

I didn't read tons of non-fiction this year, but I quite enjoyed the ones I did read. So, I'm thinking taking on this challenge will be a good way to push me to read more in this genre. I'm going to do the "Nonfiction Grazer" level, which involves reading any nonfiction books and setting your own goal. Since I only read ten non-fiction books this year, I think I'll push myself a bit and set my goal at 20.

As the title suggests, this challenge has 50 prompts to fulfill. 

Prompt-based challenges are my jam, as you can clearly see! This one has 40, all of which have something to do with having an adventure.

Whew! What do you think? Can I finish all these? Since I can use one book for prompts on multiple challenge lists, I think it's doable. Even if I totally fail, at least I'll have fun finding new books to read. Wish me luck!

If you're looking for a reading challenge (or ten) to join for the new year, check out my other blog by clicking here or on the banner below. I keep a running list of challenges being hosted all over the book blogosphere. If you're hosting one and you don't see it listed on my site, please let me know. I'm happy to add you to the database.


  1. Brilliant list. I have done so many challenges this year (See in my Statistics), my new year's resolution is not to do any in 2022. But we all know how those go. LOL

  2. Wowza! You are so brave and ambitious. That many challenges would cause me anxiety. I do want to join a challenge this year though, so now I just have to decide which one. You have so many good ones.

  3. All of these sound really fun! I might sign up for the historical fiction one myself. Good luck...and happy reading in 2022. :D

  4. Wow, so many challenges, and you did so great. Happy New Year!

  5. I am doing both the nonfiction and literary escapes challenges as well! Hope I'll get some good suggestions from your blog. Happy New Year!

  6. Thanks for signing up again for the Historical Fiction Reading Challenge. I really appreciate your continued participation.

    You are braver in your commitment to the Aussie Author challenge! I have only gone for the Wallaroo level because I am so bad at reading male authors from any country, not only Australian male authors.

  7. Delight to have you join the Nonfiction Reader Challenge! Good luck!

  8. Ten challenges? Wow! I'm impressed! I struggle with more than a couple. That said, I may have to check a few of these out.

    Pam @ Read! Bake! Create!

  9. I envy you! I would love to do a book challenge but then I feel too much pressure to read and don't read anything lol. I'm weird!


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!
