I’m sure that I have some books I’d throw in the ocean if I thought about it, as is todays topic of Top Ten Tuesday (as always hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl). But I’m at a point in my recovery that I don’t need that negativity in my life, lol. Some day I’m sure I’ll happily create a list of that. Now is that that time.
So instead I am going to share with you some long term reading challenges and projects I have. And with that I mean that these take longer than a year. There isn’t a time on it per se. Just something I want to chip away at every year. Long series and the like. So lets go!
Discworld + Companonions | 18/41
As frequent visitors will know, I am a Terry Pratchett fan and mostly with his Discworld books. I am hosting the Discworld Reading Challenge Turtle Recall for a second year in a row. (If you haven’t joined, come join us over on goodreads!) But the series is 41 books long, not counting all the companions, and it is a hefty challenge.
Mercedes Thompson | 5/13
Not as long as above but there are still books releasing in the series. I want to take my time but still make sure I continue on. Series sometimes stall in my reading life lol.
October Daye | 8/17
Seanan McGuire is a writing machine. She publishes many books a year, like she does for October Daye! Books are still releasing in this series.
Rick Riordan Presents | 2/29
When Rick Riordan started with this subpress with Disney I wanted to readalong with what was publishing. Somehow that didn’t happen and now I am very, very behind. So I recently made this one of my long term challenges.
In Death | 7/53
You might have heard of a lady called Nora Roberts. Well she writes under the penname of JD Robb too. And this series is hella long. I like them so far so I want to continue along. I own a few and I think I might end up getting the rest from the library as they publish. I can’t quite imagine how much space she would otherwise take over lol.
35 Books Before 35 | 2/35
Last year before my birthday I pledged to read a certain 35 books before 35. I am not making a lot of headway at the moment *cough* but I do need to give it some attention which is why it is one of my projects.
The Great Series Read Project
The Great Series Read Project was created by Caitlin from Realms of My Mind back in December 2018. This is as such not a year long reading challenge but a way to help you keep track of the series you are reading and to help you finish them. Because that is just so very often what we lose track of.
The SFF Countries Project
And then there is my own hosted project which I haven’t given enough attention since the whole burn-out. I just need to sit down and go through all previous read books and add them in my sheets so I can do it by month again.
