Farren (mmmcookies) | 524 comments Reading Challenge Rules

These are general guidelines that will apply to all reading challenges unless otherwise specified.



🔹 A book can only be used for one task per challenge.

🔹 You can use the same book for all of your challenges, as long as it fits one of the tasks. This makes it easy to complete many challenges throughout the year!

🔹 If there is more than one option for a task, you only have to read one of them to mark it off.

🔹 Books must be a minimum of 150 pages to complete a task.

🔹 Audiobooks count, too! Just use the page count for the default book format that comes up on Goodreads.

🔹 Rereads are also acceptable.

🔹 If you sign up for a challenge after the start date, feel free to backdate to the beginning of the challenge in order to get credit for all the books you read during the challenge runtime.

🔹 Tasks can be completed in any order. When completed, just link the book title followed by the finish date to mark it off.



If you have any questions, feel free to ask and I’ll post any additional information above!

To add the book link, you just click on add book/author above the comment box (only available for the desktop version of GR unfortunately), and when you search for the book you can choose to share the link as either the title or the book's cover.

However you want to format your post is up to you. I personally prefer to copy and paste all of the tasks and follow the ones I've finished with the title link and completion date. That way it is all in one spot and I don't have to scroll to the top haha

So an example of my reading so far this year would be:

1/52 Completed

1. Read a fantasy novel
2. Read a dystopian novel
3. Read a mystery/thriller novel
The Good Daughter
4. Read a historical fiction novel
5. Read a contemporary/mental health novel
6. Read a classic novel
7. Read a graphic novel
8. Listen to an audiobook
9. Read a standalone novel
10. Start a series you've been eyeing for a while
The Bad Beginning 1/2
11. Complete a series (or read its latest release)
12. Reread a book you love
13. Read a diverse book
14. Read a 2018 release
15. Read an author that's new to you
16. Read a book by a favorite author that you haven't read yet
17. Read a book that makes you laugh

20. Read a book that features magic
21. Read a book you abandoned in the past
22. Read a book that is perfect for vacation
23. Read a book with an OTP you can’t get enough of
24. Read a book that features a kickass female heroine
25. Read a book in one day
26. Read a book in which the MC has the same profession as you or your dream job
27. Read a book set in a cold climate
28. Read a book set in another country
29. Read a book set somewhere you'd love to visit or relocate to

37. Read a book that was a gift

39. Read a book "everyone" has read but you
40. Read a book that has been on your TBR for over two years
41. Read a book with a captivating first line

43. Read a book that is over 500 pages
44. Read a book that was made into a movie
45. Read a book that was adapted for a television series
46. Read a book you chose because of the cover
47. Read a book with your favorite color on the cover

50. Read a book with a metallic/glossy cover
51. Read a book with a number in the title
The Last One
52. Read a book with a color in the title

Another way to you can do it is to just list each task you've started reading for one at a time. An example of that for my books would be:

Start a series you've been eyeing for a while - The Bad Beginning 1/2
Read a book with a number in the title - The Last One
Read a mystery/thriller novel - The Good Daughter

Don't forget that you can use the html codes in the some html is ok button above the comment box to add strikethroughs, italics, and bolds to your tasks as well!

You can always use your challenge tracker thread to play around with it and update your post on that challenge's thread periodically once you figure it out.
