2015 Reading Challenges

Posted January 1, 2015 in Reading / 10 Comments

My 2016 Reading Challenges can be found here.

If you can’t tell by now, I like to read. A lot. I stumbled across some of these book challenges and I think some would be pretty cool. I figured it would probably be beneficial to put a post together of the book challenges I have decided to participate in for 2015.

I basically just keep adding to this list every time I hear about a new challenge that I think I can do. Since I have a slight book addiction (yes, I think I’m in denial), this list will likely get longer.

I give you My 2015 Reading Challenges List, listed in the order in which I became aware of them:

1. 2015 Birthday Month Reading Challenge hosted by You, Me, and a Cup of Tea 2015 Birthday Month Reading Challenge

This challenge is to read a book each month by an author whose birthday is in that month.

2. 2015 Hard Core Re-Reading Challenge hosted by You, Me, and a Cup of Tea

2015 Hard Core Re-Reading ChallengeThis challenge starts with a 10-20 level and progresses all the way to 50+ books. I’ll see how I can do on this one. I’ll aim for the 10-20 level.

3. Finishing the Series Reading Challenge 2015 hosted by Socrates’ Book Reviews

Finishing the SeriesThe goal of this challenge is to finish 1 to 4+ series this year. I’m not sure which series I’ll go with.

4. 2015 Color Coded Challenge hosted by My Reader’s Block

Color Coded 2015This challenge just sounds cool. Read a book in each of 9 categories.

 5. You Read How Many Books? Reading Challenge 2015 hosted by Book Dragon’s Lair

2015RC HowManyBooksSince I already read way more than a have to, I may as well enter this one as well. With the books I usually read and then the ones I read with my students at school, this should add up pretty quick. I’ll start with 100 but may have to move up a level.

6. 2015 Alphabet Soup Reading Challenge hosted by Escape With Dollycas


This challenge is to read one book starting with each letter (or containing for Q,X,Z) during the year. It sounds like fun to me and since I read way too much as it is, I think I’ll be able to do this.

 7. What’s In A Name? 2015 Reading Challenge hosted by The Worm Hole


This challenge is to read one book from each of the following categories:

 8. 2015 Mythology Reading Challenge hosted by Lili Lost in a Book


This challenge is to read full-length novels with a mythology theme. I have a confession to make. I haven’t read the Percy Jackson books, any of them. Therefore, I think I should reasonably be able to aim for the Demigod Level (1-5 books). We’ll see how it goes.

List of Books

9. Fairytale Retelling Reading Challenge hosted by The Daily Prophecy

Fairytale Retelling Challenge

This challenge is to read fairytale retellings. I LOVE fairytale retellings. I’m going to aim for Magic Mirror level which is 5-9 books.

  1. Thanks for joining up with the Birthday Month Reading challenge and the Hard Core Re-reading Challenge. 🙂

  2. Oooh, I’m actually also joining the finish the series challenge! It’s embarrassing how many series I’ve started and haven’t finished yet, lol. I’ve seen some of these other ones around, but I’m still trying to figure out which challenges I want to join for sure… I sort of have an addiction to these things and I’m trying to restrain myself a little, lol.

    Thanks for joining the mythology challenge! 😀 And gasp You have not read Percy Jackson yet?? Well, that is definitely a good place to start! 🙂

    Good luck on all your challenges!

    • Thanks. I know about the addiction to these challenges. I keep having to limit myself because I know I can’t do everything.
      The kids at school can’t believe I haven’t read Percy Jackson either. There are a few more books on my shelf that may fit the category… I’ll have to see as I get into some of them.

    • Thanks. I just know that the books I like to read will fit into the challenges nicely. Especially the fairy tales since I read a lot of retellings.

  3. Good luck on your challenges, Amanda! I especially like your ‘ing’ book for What’s In A Name considering it fits last year’s weather category, too (being the host I’m still knee-deep in that one!)

    Happy new year 🙂
