Need a challenge?

Meeting reading goals can be frustrating.  There are so many reading options at your local library and bookstore, so many types of books, and genres, and age levels.  It can be a little daunting.  If you're looking for a fun way to meet your reading goal, consider one of these reading challenges from popular review and professional blogs.

2014 Debut Author Challenge
Hosted by The Story Siren
This challenge has two objectives: 1) Introduce readers to new authors, and 2) Challenge readers to read at least 12 titles from debut authors.

Twelve isn't so much!  And if you head over to The Story Siren, she has a list of titles to make things super easy!

2014 Standalone Reading Challenge
Hosted by Iceybooks and Dizneeee's World of Books
According to the host blog websites, the challenge encourages readers to tackle 15 YA and Middle Grade standalone novels released in 2014.

Now this is my kind of challenge!  I like teen series, but the shelves are inundated with started but not finished collections that I will inevitably fail at finishing.  This I can not fail :)  And they too have a list of titles to make things super easy!

YALSA Youth Media Reading Challenge
Hosted by The Hub

The Youth Media Awards were announced this morning...yay!  Each year YALSA challenges readers to explore the best in youth literature by reading at least 25 of the winning titles (Newbery, Caldecott, Prinz, Morris, and Coretta Scott King Book Awards).  If you want a little encouragement to read some truly spectacular childrens, tween, and teen titles, take the Youth Media Reading Challenge!
