Reading Challenges for 2022

I failed at all of my challenges last year. With the kids being home for most of the year (Miss R was home until April, Mr. Z was home all year, and Miss B was on and off), I couldn’t give attention to the challenges that they needed.

But, it is 2022 and, if the kids stay in school (grrrr….COVID), I plan on completing all of my challenges.

The challenges I decided to do this year are:

Goodreads 2022 Reading Challenge. I set a goal of 200 books. I am already behind two books but I am hoping to make that up soon.

The StoryGraph Reading Challenge: Same as Goodreads except this one says I am behind 3 books. I am trying to figure that out since I started the challenge the same day.

The StoryGraph 2022 Pages Goal: I have never done one of these before and figured, why not. I picked 1950 pages (I asked Miss R and she gave me that number….lol). I am currently 27 pages behind but I haven’t logged the book I finished last night.

The StoryGraph January Pages Challenge: This is a monthly challenge that I signed up for. Right now I am at 25% (but I am 27 pages and 3 books behind according to them…lol).

PopSugar 2022 (through The StoryGraph): I have done this since I joined The StoryGraph in 2019. Right now, I am 0 out of 40 prompts.

Beat the Backlist (through The StoryGraph): Another one I have done since 2019. I came close to finishing it in 2019 and I am hoping to beat that this year. Right now, I am 0 out of 49 prompts.

The StoryGraph Genre Challenge 2022: So, this and the next two challenges came up when I went into the reading challenges section of The StoryGraph. I am always up for a challenge, so I decided to do it. I am at 0 out of 10 prompts.

The StoryGraph Reads the World 2022: See above. Plus, I like to challenge myself and figured this would do that. I am at 0 out of 10 prompts.

The StoryGraph’s Onboarding Reading Challenge 2022: See Genre Challenge and Read the World. I am at 0 out of 6 prompts.

So, these are the challenges I decided to do. Keeping my fingers crossed that I finish at least one of them. Let me know what reading challenges you are doing!!

January 2022 TBR

Happy New Year!!! Hope yours was well and you all stayed safe. I didn’t do much (watched Jenna & Hoda’s New Year’s Eve Special) and ate a ton (my SO made a ton of food).

What I didn’t do was read, though, and I do have a backlog of books that I am carrying over from November and December. I do plan on stepping up my reading this year and I am determined to read my backlog and most of my January’s TBR.

Saying that, here’s my list. Backlog first and then the books I have scheduled for January. Please let me know if you have read any of these!!

December backlog:

Wish You Were Here by Jodi Picoult

Girls Before Earls by Anna Bennett

January TBR

The Maid by Nita Prose

Reckless Girls by Rachel Hawkins

The Last House on the Street by Diane Chamberlain

How to Love Your Neighbor by Sophie Sullivan

Such a Pretty Smile by Kristi DeMeester

That’s it!! It’s a shortlist this month and I am hoping to read all of these and get a head start on February!!
