The Awards Challenge


Happy almost New Year!

For our first quarterly solo challenge, we wanted to do things a bit differently. No, there’s no “new year, new me” challenge or something related to that. Nope, we are difficult and wanted to do a Goodreads Award challenge! Now this one will be pretty simple to do because you only read a book that won the award. That’s it. Oh, and since we are such nice mods, we will even let you read a book that was nominated. See? Pretty simple.

Now for this challenge, you are reading the books that were either nominated or won from the year 2009 to 2018. Yup, lots of years and books to dive into. If you’ve ever voted for these awards, there’s a ton of categories to vote for! For this challenge, you won’t be reading for all of those wonderful categories - just 16 of them. Now we aren’t forcing you to dive into a genre that you have zero interest in - if you just want to read the fantasy, fiction, or YA categories, go for it.

Other than that, this challenge will be nice, relaxing, and super easy! If you have any questions, please comment below. Oh, and if you would like to sign up for this challenge, please comment below as well.

Rules:
*Books must be read and reviewed from January 1st to March 31st.
*Books must be 100 pages to count (using the most rated edition on GR)
**Books read that are under 100 pages will count toward page counts
**Books that are DNF’d can count toward pages. A review and/or status updates is still required.
**Manga/graphic novels and poetry books will not be accepted for this challenge.
*Five detailed status updates can be used in place of a review.
*Buddy reads must take place within this group to count for bonus points.
**You must make a minimum of four comments on a buddy read to earn points.

Points:
*One point for every book read and reviews that works with one of the below categories
*Three points for every buddy read that takes place within our group (you must leave four comments on the thread for it to count).
*Five points for reading and participating in the group book of the month discussion (must leave four comments on the thread to count)
*Five points for every 1000 pages read

Jamie Can I actually drop out of this one? I am not seeing enough that I want to read or I'd be starting a bunch of series' just to get to the correct book for it to count. Sorry. I do love the idea but it just isn't fitting in with my reading plans and interests at this time.
