Looking for a List of 2018 Reading/Book Blogging Challenges? Look No Further!
For the last few years I’ve posted a comprehensive list of all the book blogging and reading challenges I’ve found. It seems like it’s been a useful resource, so I figured I’d do it again this year! This is a list of everything I’ve found so far, but I’ll be adding to it—feel free to let me know in the comments if you know of another challenge and I’ll add it to the list.
If you’re looking for some advice on how to wisely choose the challenges you want to participate in (and how to get yourself organized), check out my post: How to Keep Yourself Motivated and Organized for Reading Challenges. And Julie over at Chapter Break wrote this great post on How to Embed a Goodreads Shelf into a Blog Post!
And if you’re considering hosting a challenge yourself, you might want to check out my guest post over at 125 Pages with advice on Running a Successful Meme or Challenge.
