Anyone lining up their reading challenges for next year? I'm deciding to go for all or mostly new challenges this year (still undecided about #readharder). So I'm looking at #monthlymotifGXO, #monthlykeywordGXO (maybe challenging myself to fill both with one book!), maybe #MMDchallenge from Modern Mrs Darcy once it comes out, so long as it is announced in an accessible format, not as an image of text. Any other suggestions?

Chrissyreadit What are the two monthly challenges? 1w
Soubhiville I‘m thinking of sticking with just #MountTBR this year, but #popsugar prompts also look fun, so I may casually try that as well. 1w
Lauredhel @Soubhiville I'm waiting to see if pop sugar posts am accessible version 1w

Lauredhel @Chrissyreadit if you google the hashtags you should find them :) both by Girl XOXO 1w
Chrissyreadit Found! Thanks. 1w
SaturnDoo I haven't been very successful with this year's challenges 😥 Too many RL incidents put my reading time on hold. But I'm definitely going to try again this year. Working on getting my Bujo ready so I have no excuses to start on Jan 1 😄 1w
sprainedbrain I‘m a challenge freak... I‘m going to look up the two you mentioned. Currently, I‘m planning to do #ReadingWomen, #Booked2020 and #ReadingEurope2020. I‘m on the fence about Popsugar this year, and I haven‘t seen Read Harder prompts yet... are those posted? (edited) 1w
Lauredhel @sprainedbrain I did find a read harder 2020 prompt page in the google cache, but it's been removed from the site... Maybe posted early accidentally? 1w
sprainedbrain @Lauredhel That‘s what I found, too... glad to know it wasn‘t just my imagination. I was confused! 1w
Lauredhel @sprainedbrain having said that I might not do Read Harder again - but #booked2020 looks good, I haven't done that before! 1w
Lauredhel @sprainedbrain is five challenges too many? WE SHALL FIND OUT 1w
sprainedbrain @Lauredhel I am doing five this year and I think I‘m going to finish them all! Read Harder just seems to be getting... ummm.. harder every year. Lol. I like to use books on my tbr or library books as often as I can for challenges and find myself having to buy special or obscure books for Read Harder. So it‘s not one of my five this year. 🤪 I‘m sure I will at least look this year. This will be my third year of #Booked. I like that one! 1w
Lauredhel @sprainedbrain i hear you on Read Harder - this year I am looking for prompts with a little more latitude (edited) 1w

This was an adorably sweet read! I can see why some would call it stalkerish but it's just so darn cute. I love the email exchanges between Beth and Jennifer, and Lincoln, well what can I say? RR creates the best book boyfriends ever (Levi of Fangirl, Simon & Baz of Carry On). ❤️❤️❤️

I had a blast reading this book! It was funny, sarcastic and truly charming. Henry Tilney is just as swoon-worthy as Mr. Darcy, if not a tad more (gasp!) 😍

Cinfhen How many issues was this one??? I‘m always put off when I see a large number 😜 3w
Jovy @cinfhen This was actually shorter than most - 30 issues! 3w
Cinfhen Oh, that‘s good to know! Maybe I‘ll try ~ thanks for posting and sharing 💕 3w

I've been wanting to read this since I finished The Deep, and I must say this was better! It falls more on the side of gross and disgusting than scary. I am not a fan of worms and after this book, I really really don't want to be anywhere near one! A good solid book if you have a strong stomach. And Corey Brill was spot on.

Bookzombie I definitely liked this one better than The Deep. I read this one first though. 🙂 1mo
Reggie I like both equally for different reasons. But the part with the monkey and the part with the turtle...😲. I liked his little part about strong names and then he introduces you to Shelly. Lol p.s. skip Little Heaven, it was bad. @Bookzombie 1mo
Bookzombie @Reggie Every time I run across Little Heaven I think ‘Reggie did not like this one.‘ Lol. 1mo
Jovy @Reggie I was just thinking about Little Heaven 😂 Thanks for the heads-up! 1mo

This started out so so good, and then petered out. I do get that it's more a character study than a thriller and I did appreciate the tension resonating from the book. It totally makes you think twice about leaving your kids with just anybody. But the ending lacked resolution for me.

Unpopular opinion. This started out quite intriguing and then fell flat for me. Jane is badass, no doubt, and the narrator was awesome. I think it may have been just me wanting more zombie 😂 Will still read the sequel though.

This was an impressive debut from Angie Kim. A riveting courtroom drama with authentic characters. The mystery will draw you in but it's the powerful, honest portrayal of parenthood, disability care, and immigration that will make you fall. One of my favorite reads this year!

Raw and compelling view on addiction. Made me start an open dialogue with my kids. Worth the read for every parent!

Jesstifies I agree about so-so vibes. I really enjoyed the first half, and then struggled with how the plot resolved. Felt like an odd mix of atmospheric old world problems jammed together with a super pro-Google nerd fest :P 2mo
MiqueMarie @Jesstifies exactly. Lol 2mo
megzlynn I‘m doing the Modern Mrs. Darcy Challenge as well. I have one prompt left. I can‘t wait to finish. It‘s the first challenge I‘ve ever participated in! 2mo
