Ultimate Teen Book Guide 2nd Edition – Reading Challenge

14 Sep

index

So I’ve already been doing the Ultimate Teen Book Guide Challenge for a couple of years however I didnt realise that there was an updated version of the book. I’m still going to take part in the original challenge but I need to dig out my original book as most of my books are in boxes still from moving – and probably will do for some time!

Like with the Utimate Book Guide Challenge I’ve been working on the master list for this challenge which can be found HERE.

I’m also going to live by my series reading new mantra – I’ll read the first book in a series but if its not enjoyable for me then I will give up on it – purely because life is too short to be reading books that you dont enjoy – plus this always affects my reading mojo if I’m not enjoying what I’m reading!

According to my list there is 782 books in this challenge and I have read a measley 43 books – which equates to only 5.50% – however there are some amazing books on this challenge that I’m really looking forward to reading!

I’m also going to do some re-cap posts of some of the books that I have read with the reading recommendations etc!

Ultimate Book Guide – A Long Term Reading Challenge

11 Sep

9781408104385

I came across this book a little while ago on Amazon. I’ve already been doing the Ultimate Teen Book Guide Challenge (more about that challenge coming up in another post!) but this book is geared towards the age bracket of 8-12. Having gone through the book there is definitely some more grown up titles in this book too so it does look like quite an interesting challenge.

I’ve complied a list of all the titles to track my progress. This can be found – HERE.

This book runs along the same theme as the UTBG book – a book title, review and then some recommendations of both other challenge books and some others too which I always like.

I’m going to do this challenge slightly differently when it comes to series reading – I will read the first book in the different series but if I don’t enjoy it I’m not going to read the full series – this is something that I’ve adopted all throughout my reading lately. Life is just too short to be forcing myself to read books I’m not enjoying.

Having gone through the list I have read 34 books out of a possible 672 – which means I’m about 5.07% of the way through.I will be doing some catch up posts over the next few months of these books that I have read (In between looking after my 3 year old, having another baby in the next month, working full-time running our own business and studying for an accounting qualification!) as I want to catch up on the recommendations etc!

I have also not marked as read some books that I’d like to read again like the Famous Five series – I’m sure that I’ve missed a couple of books in this series so I’m going to try to read these again.

I am really looking forward to this long-term reading challenge and hopefully I will discover some really good reads along the way!

 

Reading Challenges

3 Nov

I’m currently looking for some more reading challenges ir reading lists on the internet, i think its because i like lists 😛

I’m already taking part in the Rory Gilmore challenge which is the list of books that Rory Gilmore has read in the show Gilmore Girls.

I’m also reading all the books on the 100 books likst by the BBC. These books are meant to be the best books but not many people have apparently read.

I also looked into the 1001 childrens books to read before you grow up and 1001 books to read before you die, but i think the last challenge is a bit morbid :/

think im going to research more reading challenges today.
