It‘s that time of the year again, the one in which to decide what reading challenges to participate in and what books to choose for each prompt. It‘s almost as good as the reading itself 😍

#ATY2020, Goodreads‘ Around The Year Challenge, is the first I saw and it‘s looking great. It won‘t be the same doing this challenge without @Rachel_nyc 💔but I am tempted to participate again.

merelybookish The planning is the best part! And I'm still thinking about Rachel. I didn't know her well, but the loss of a virtual friend is still a loss. 3y
BarbaraBB @merelybookish The planning is so exciting for us book nerds! And I am surprised how touched I am by the loss of a virtual friend. 3y
marleed Thank you for letting us know about Rachel. I found her public FB page yesterday and thought of her all day and still today. It breaks my IRL heart. 3y

BarbaraBB @marleed I feel the same. Life can be rude. 3y
batsy I've been thinking about Rachel ever since you shared the news, too. I didn't know her well but I enjoyed her posts and her comments in discussion. I still can't wrap my mind around it 😔 3y
BarbaraBB @batsy It feels unreal. And it feels close even if we didn‘t know her well 😒 3y
Suet624 I‘m with you all in the news about Rachel too. It has really affected me. 3y

Anyone else doing the #aroundtheyearin52books challenge on Goodreads? I have just started my first book for the 2019 challenge, after successfully finishing my 2018 one. Excited to hopefully find many good reads for the different prompts. Would be nice to see ideas here for the different tasks. (Tagging the two other people I know are doing this).


nomadreader I'm jumping in for the first time this year! 4y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa I know @Gezemice does this one every year! 4y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa I did last year for the first time, not sure if I‘m jumping in this year or skipping a year🤷‍♀️ 4y

Liz_M I think @BarbaraBB is doing this challenge. I am dabbling in it -- I plan to complete only about half the prompts and not in order or during the right week. 😁 4y
Gezemice Thanks for the tag @Riveted_Reader_Melissa Yes, I have been doing this challenge for three years. I like the Goodreads group a lot. I have pretty much dropped other challenges, but I am keeping this one for the company and because the prompts are pretty easy to fill with what I usually already read, with only a few that stretch me, which is what I need right now - I want to do more mood reads and less planning. In short, yes, I am doing this 😊 4y
SaturnDoo I just joined the group yesterday on GR. I think I'm going to try it. 😊 4y
BarbaraBB I am indeed (thanks @Liz_M !), for the first time! I am trying to follow the weeks. After Washington Black for the first prompt I am now starting the tagged book for the second, a book with one of the five W‘s in its title. 4y
hilded Excellent, then we are some people doing it here:) I like the GR group a lot too! I am planning of using sort of the same approach as both of you @Liz_M & @Gezemice. 4y
hilded Good luck @nomadreader & @SaturnDoo 😊 And to you too @Riveted_Reader_Melissa if you decide to do it:) (edited) 4y
hilded Cred to you for going in order! @BarbaraBB. Looking forward to see your picks 😊 I heard your next one is supposed to be very good. 4y
Gezemice @BarbaraBB Nice! I never do it in order, but looking at my reads, I can totally accidntally will be reading three in order... lol 4y
hilded @MamaJody Jody, I saw you just joined us, how nice!! Welcome 😘 (edited) 4y
MamaJody I‘m here! This will be my fifth year doing our group‘s challenge, but the first year I‘m not aiming to finish. I‘ve set a goal of twenty prompts since I want to do all big books for it. 4y
Marina_h I'm glad to be back doing the challenge after taking a break last year! I've been part of the group from the very beginning and you know you can't leave 😉 4y

This Around the Year challenge on GR looks fun too! But I also want to participatie in #Pop19 and #Booked2019.... and feel free to read what I feel like. #choiceschoices. Anyone else doing this one? #ATY

alisiakae I‘m now on the fence b/w #pop19 or ATY. I felt there was some repetition and overlap on Popsugar‘s list for 2019, but I also have a lot of books I own that would fit the prompts. Being a co-host, I‘m definitely doing #Booked2019. 😃 Although one of our prompts is on the pop19 list. 😫 4y
Lindy My like to look back on my previous year of reading and match prompts from one of these lists to the books I‘ve already read. I usually only miss on two or three; a good sign that I‘m already reading broadly. 4y
cajunsyd Oh no! It‘s that time already? I have to finish my 2018 challenges still! Always behind with my stacks! I will check all of these out and get to planning... 4y

Liz_M Thank you! I knew I could count on you to post the upcoming 2019 challenges! ☺ 4y
BarbaraBB @Liz_M Haha, but it‘s too much! Are you going to participate in some? 4y
Birdsong28 This looks really good. 📚📖 4y
Crazeedi Thanks for the info, I'm going to see which I want to do! 4y
sprainedbrain Oh, I hadn‘t seen this one yet. Around the World was the first book challenge I ever did a few years ago. 😃 4y
nomadreader I really like the read along structure of the one. Thanks for posting about it! There's a lot of overlap with PopSugar, so I may try to do both! 4y
BarbaraBB @4thhouseontheleft @nomadreader I would love to to them both (and #booked2019) but I am wondering if it is doable. 4y
BarbaraBB @Lindy Definitely. That is a great way to test your reading behaviour! 4y
BarbaraBB @cajunsyd Planning is the best part 😉😂 4y
BarbaraBB @sprainedbrain Will that challenge be continued next year? (edited) 4y
Liz_M I plan all of them 😁 and then pick and choose which prompts I complete, aiming for about half. For #aty, I might make a 6x6 bingo card. 4y
BookishMe I barely got to the 12 countries in #readaroundtheworld although my tally is more than 30 for #LitWorld2018GB. But it's been such a fantastic discovery with books from various continents. I don't think I can think about next year's reading until current plan is completed satisfactorily. ;)) 4y
BookishMe @Liz_M I have never tried a reading bingo... Something to KIV. Seems less intimidating or is that an ignorant guess ;p 4y
cajunsyd @BarbaraBB that is so true!! 4y

My #ATYin52Books for 2018 is looking really good so far, thanks for convincing me to try it @Gezemice

47/52, I only need 5 more.👍. That‘s actually been my best challenge so far!


tpixie On FB Check out: Reading books from every country her Books may help you out! 4y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @tpixie I will! Thank you! 4y
Gezemice Looks awesome! I am glad you are trying it! I have been slacking but I need to update mine. I think I have a lot of them covered already, too. You got only five more to go, that‘s great progress! 4y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @Gezemice I‘ve really been fitting them in as I go, and usually I can find them... I‘m sure by the end there will be one or two that I have to actively search for. 4y
