2021 Reading Challenges -- An Ambitious List

Another new year is coming in and I've cleared the entire 2021 calendar for reading...

Ha! I wish! Really, though. I've spent years trying to find ways to clear my schedule so I could stay home more and do the things I love. 2020 pretty much did that for me so, in the words of my prophetic 2018 post on upcoming reading challenges: "In short, I'm staying home. Forever."

I've looked over several awesome reading challenges out there and have settled on those below. Mt. TBR is still threatening an eruption and I've got to get ahead of it!

This challenge takes place right here at Belle's Library. You may read any book published during or about the Victorian era (1837-1901). 

I'm hosting this brand new challenge this year. Read all the things you missed out on as a kid---or revisit some old favorites! 

This challenge encourages us to read a minimum of four books and offers monthly themed challenges.

This one is new to me this year, though I do think I participated once upon a time. The Historical Fiction Reading Challenge at The Intrepid Reader. Choose your era and go to town! I think I'll attempt the Medieval Level at 15 historical fiction books. Use hashtag: #histficreadingchallenge on social media.

I actually have quite a bit of Georgian/Regency books on my TBR. I love this era!

This one is new to me this year: the Back to the Classic's Challenge from Books and Chocolate. She offers challenges and a grand prize! Read anything published before 1971---easy peasy!

This is a set-it-yourself challenge that runs for 5 years. Commit to reading at least 50 classics in 5 years.  You can see my list here: The Classics Club.

Daughters of Promise runs the Brighter Winter Reading Program during the months of January and February. They offer a challenge sheet and prizes!

What great reading challenges have you discovered for 2021?
