Challenge | Vita Sackville-West
43 posts | 1 read | 7 to read
CHALLENGE was Vita Sackville-West's second novel. It was ready to go to print in 1920, but the aughor suddenly changed her mind. This was not because she lacked confidence in her work,but because of the scandal it would have caused. CHALLENGE remained unpublished for over fifty years. Vita's love affair with Violet Trefusis had reached its peak, and, eloping to France, they decided to abandon everything and everyone - children and husbands included - to spend the rest of their lives together. Although they returned to their families eventually, CHALLENGE remains a testament of their love, and was written during that period. The hero, Julian, might be a Byronic young Englishman, and Eve the woman he adores; it may be an adventure tale about a revolt on a Greek island. But really, this is a love story, written in the presence of the beloved, and inspired by her. And, as its title implies, the novel is a challenge to the society that condemned Vita and her lover.

Hello my lovelies! Wondering if anyone would be interested in joining me for a week in May and challenge ourselves to attack that ever growing/never ending TBR list of books to read and review on #NetGalley. I signed up for NetGalley on March 4th, and I‘ve already been approved for over 140 books, 65 of which I still have left to read and review. I‘d love some support, and fellow participants! Please share, and let me know if you‘re interested!

Jerdencon Wow! I thought I had a lot at 10 to read and review! lol! 😀 I'd be up for a challenge! 2y

DarcysMom Yes! My pile has grown far too big. 2y
raelaschoenherr I‘m definitely interested! I‘ve been feeling guilty and really wanting to make more progress on my #netgalley TBR! 2y
JHSiess Depends on which week as I have concerts, etc. But am also on vacation in the latter part of the month. So . . . count me in & I'll give it my best! 2y
JazzFeathers How are you organising the challenge. I have quite a few to read myself 2y
crazyspine Yes. I've been on Netgalley for years, and I'm always behind. There's so many good books coming out this summer too that I can't wait to read the ARC. @BookBridget would probably be interested too. 2y
Bianca This sounds like fun. 2y
julesG Count me in! I need to tackle about twenty, but spent some time on NetGalley yesterday to request some more 2y
BookBridget @crazyspine is correct. I'm interested, sounds fun.📓📑📓📑📓 2y
Chelsea.Poole I would be interested! 2y
Clwojick @JazzFeathers I‘ll be making a google form, and everyone can sign up. Then share pictures, posts and reviews online. Maybe do a readathon if multiple people are reading the same book. Not 100% sure yet! But I‘m thinking may 14-20th 2y
JazzFeathers @Clwojick Sounds like fun. I'm interested 2y
EKonrad Definitely interested! Recently joined NetGalley and now I‘m inundated with new titles! Happy problem though! 😊 2y

I‘m keeping my Reading Challenge goal low for 2018- I‘m on a book award committee and can‘t acknowledge any books I read that are in contention for the award.... so here‘s hoping I still read 50 outside the award! I‘m already thinking of lowering that..😬😬🤔🤔

Bkwrm7 Which committee are you on? I keep considering applying for one of the YALSA lists like Amazing Audiobooks, but I know how big a time commitment it is so have chickened out so far. I hope you make your 50 beyond the committee! 2y
Sarahreadstoomuch @Bkwrm7 I‘m on the Morris Award Committee. It‘s the first I‘ve ever done, so I have no idea how much time or how many books I‘ll be reading. It‘s limited to debut YA, so it‘s not as big a time commitment as say Printz is. I‘m really excited to get started! 2y
Bkwrm7 Oh, I bet the Morris will be so fun! And the quantity of reading might not be too bad with only debuts to consider. Congrats on your first committee! 2y
Sarahreadstoomuch @Bkwrm7 thank you so much! 2y

After having to reduce my 2017 challenge from 56 to 48 books in late summer, I've decided to scale back to 2-1/2 books per month in 2018, so I can focus on some longer books. I'm excited for some sort of classics challenge, though I also want to keep up with some contemporary fiction as well.... Happy New Year, Littens! Can you believe it's 2018? 😳

Nonfiction Challenge 2018!

I‘ll be carrying on what @Booksandcooks started last year.

The challenge is to read 1 non-fiction book for each month in 2018.

The tag will be #nonfiction2018

w00t!!! I surpassed my Goodreads reading challenge goal for the year by 100 books! Seriously tempted to try for a total of 200 books read. But, I would need to read 25 more books with only half a month left in the year. Would reading kids‘ books count? Or would that be cheating? 🤔 what do you think Littens?

Kalalalatja Books are books, wether they are for kids or not. I say go for it! 👏👏 2y
kylienoele I agree with @Kalalalatja 😄 2y
Soubhiville I think it‘s personal. I counted children‘s books last year, but this year decided not to. 2y

CoffeeK8 Books are books! You could read graphic novels too... those always go quick for me. 2y
Clwojick Congrats! It's really whatever works for you. I count all books in my numbers. This year I got into graphic novels, and my numbers soared. Quick books help me to stay out of reading slumps, and I'm grateful for that so I do count them. I think going into the new year I'll do more specific challenges like the #pop18 rather than set an annual numerical goal. 2y

Last year around this time, I saw the #LitsyReadingChallenge and screenshotted it, then later decided I didn‘t need to add yet another challenge to my year. I‘ve been seeing people posting their progress lately, and today I came across the screenshot when cleaning out photos on my phone. So I got curious, and I pulled out my reading log to compare my books read with the challenge categories. Not bad. Maybe I should take this approach next year. 😂

AceOnRoam This might be a good challenge for us in #ATB @Erin7 @norsulaulu @jb72 ? I am already doing the Australian Women Writer's Challenge again next year, so I could use some of the same books. 2y
Erin7 @AceOnRoam I think this sounds really interesting. @norsulaulu I know we‘ve been working on a different challenge for 2018, but what would you think of putting it on the back burner for the moment? This will give us more time to work on the other when things are not so just and I love this premise. We could hold the other for 2019? 2y

I started the year with a 60 book challenge goal thinking a little over one book a week was doable, upped to 75, then 100, looks like I‘ll easily make 160 which is a bit ridiculous. 2018 challenge will be lower hoping to read some doorstoppers but the audiobooks and long commute as well as 10,000 step a day goal where I listen to books will probably keep me reading away. #BookishProblems. New goal is a limit on new books- harder to keep!

Going pretty well if I do say so myself, considering I haven't had as much time to read since I started a new job at the beginning of April.
Usually I'm too busy to read at lunch, cos I often don't have time to even have lunch & I've been clocking up a lot of overtime as well.
I sometimes wish I was back in my old job. Life was a bit easier then. The grass is always greener and all that ...

Liatrek Sigh I totally relate☹️ Nothing worse than no book time due to work. 3y
LazyOwl @Liatrek yes, it's definitely a tragic situation! 3y

Week 4 of the Spouse Induced #ReadingChallenge
Operation "Read the (allegedly insane amount of) Library Books".
Books completed: Lolita
Total read: 5/15

I'm not sure I can keep this up unless I stop reading non-library books. ?

RachelO Go Leni! You're 1/3 through - and getting through Lolita is kind of major without throwing the other 14 books into the mix... 3y
Leniverse @RachelO Thanks! Yes, Lolita is about half the size of several of the remaining books, but I have a feeling they might still be easier to get through. 😜 3y

I know there are still TWO days left in March...however I'm currently in middle of 4 books and none will fill the remaining boxes so it's safe to assume this is how my #LitsyReadingChallenge looks after 3 months😊Loving this challenge @jessica

Oh dear, Vita. I loved the Edwardians and All Passion Spent, subtle, funny, thoughtful examinations of upper class outsiders trying to negotiate their roles in a changing world. But this... Julian and Eve's relationship was irritating but compelling and against the backdrop of a frankly ludicrous political conflict it became utterly unbelievable. A heavy-handed metaphor for personal freedom that did not come off at all.

Weaponxgirl That's so disappointing to hear, I loved all passion spent too. A book I try to get people working with the elderly to read. 3y
Moray_Reads @Weaponxgirl it's so good, and I recommend the Edwardians too. Challenge, not so much... 3y
