Everyone knows I love a good reading challenge, so I’m planning on participating in a few next year. I failed pretty hard at all of my 2018 challenges, but I have plans to help me stay on track of them in 2019 (look out for a post about that soon!).
In the meantime, it’s time for my sign-up post for my first official reading challenge commitment of 2019: the New Release Challenge, hosted by (un)Conventional Bookworms!
The rules for the NRC are:
- books must be released and reviewed in 2019
- books can be combined with other reading challenges (yay!)
- minimum length for qualifications: 100 pages (any format)
- sign-ups are open until September 1st, 2019
- blog NOT required
There are FIVE (5) LEVELS to the NRC: newbie (1-30 books), pro (31-60), veteran (61-100), enthusiast (101-200), and obsessed (200+). If I had participated in 2018, I think I would’ve gotten “obsessed”, but I’m aiming to read more backlist titles in 2019 than I did in 2018, so my goal for 2019 is to hit the “enthusiast” level.
If you plan on reading many new releases next year, be sure to sign up for the challenge! There will be places to link to your reviews for proof of reading once a quarter, and entering your reviews gets you entered into a giveaway! There are more details on the original post, so be sure to check it out here.
