Hello, long time no posts, again! I am determined to bring this blog back to life in 2021. I am working out how best to do this right now, and thought that giving myself some challenges, as in Reading Challenges would be a good way to get me back into the mood. I love a good challenge.
Of course I have an overall reading goal, which I track in my bullet journal as well as on Goodreads. Within this overall goal, I also have goals to read books in all the genres that I love, such as Horror, Sci-Fi/Fantasy, Nonfiction, Classics and to also to revisit some of my all time favorite reads.
So, without further ado, here are the challenges I’ll be participating in during 2021. Each image links to its own page where I’ll track my progress. I’ve also linked to the host of each challenge so you can learn more if you are interested in joining these challenges.
2021 Book Blog Discussion Challenge
As I shared earlier, my goal in 2021 is to get this blog back up and running. I will be joining the 2021 Book Blog Discussion Challenge. This should give me some really interesting ideas on what to write and post about throughout 2021.

2021 Netgalley & Edelweiss Reading Challenge
And last, but certainly not least, I will be working through my Netgalley & Edelweiss backlist, hoping to get my rating higher than 85 in 2021. I’m hoping that committing to the 2021 Netgalley and Edelweiss Reading Challenge will give me the swift kick in the pants I need to get these books read and reviewed already!
