There are plenty of fun activities that the reading community has created, among my favorites are the following three that I will be participating in, some last a few days while others take place through all of 2018! Do let me know down below if you’ll be participating in any of these:
#HarpiesReadTheWorld Challenge hosted by
@bookish.harpy in Instagram:
This challenge will take place a few times throughout the year, each time with three different challenges to be read that month. For the month of January I’ll be reading the following books for this challenge:
- A Book Written by a Native American: Tales of Burning Love by Louise Erdrich
- A Book from a Country America is in Conflict with: The Attack by Yasmina Khadra (Author is from Algeria and the novel takes place in Tel Aviv)
- A book from a Predominantly Muslim Country: Song of a Captive Bird by Jasmin Darznik (Author is from Iran and the novel takes place in Iran)
I’m looking forward to all the books I’ll discover through this challenge since it promotes diverse reading, I’ll post updates as each challenge is completed.
Bookopoly hosted by Broc’s Bookcase
Bookopoly is a fun challenge that goes from January 1st to December 31st of 2018. The goal is go complete all the challenges around the board. Either by going in order or at random with the help of dice. There are some fun challenges along the way that will be posted throughout the year. During each monthly wrap-up I’ll post my progress for this challenge.
Booktube-A-Thon hosted by Ariel Bissett
This readathon is always great fun and it is probably one of the most popular ones around Booktube. It is hosted by the wonderful Ariel Bissett, an artist, a reader, a writer, an overall inspiring person. Booktube-A-Thon generally has 7 challenges and one can participate in Youtube and/or Instagram, these challenges are always lots of fun! I’ll post more info about it once it is announced.
Do you participate in any bookish challenges or readathons? These are the main three for me but I’m always open to new ones, especially if they are focused on diverse reading! Let me know if you know of any!
Happy reading everyone!
