+100 Books in a Year+ A reading challenge to challenge the reader in rate of absorption!

Posted Sunday, 16 February, 2014 by jorielov 5 Comments

100 Books in a Year Reading Challenge Hosted by Book Chick CityThe challenge is outlined quite simply enough, as the goal is to read *100!* books between New Year’s Day, 2014 & New Year’s Eve, 2015! You can read any combination of books throughout the genres of spectrum available but non-fiction is strictly not counted within the guidelines of the challenge itself. I am going to limit my counting of the *100!* books to ONLY those books I read outside of blog tours &/or books I receive in exchange for honest reviews! I am going to count books I read within individual challenges as this is more of a rate of absorption challenge rather than a specific word count, page count, or thematic of story count! This perked my interest because I have never actually counted how many books I read *per year!* and it’s quite likely I may have or may not have read a full 100!

Unlike the other challenges where I have reading lists scheduled and outlined, I am going to be adding books to this list as they populate within my reading adventures! Therefore, there is no starting map for this particular challenge, as the books will simply ‘appear’ after I have read them, linking over to the post I have reviewed them (if I so choose!), and will be tweeting (@JLovesAStory) the update that I finished another book for this particular challenge! I’ll link the reviews I do post in correlation with 100 Books through the monthly round-ups of reviews via Book Chick City!

The event changed my life by re-establishing my muse and solidifying my path. Five years later whilst exploring the bookish blogosphere I decided to become a book blogger. I am a champion of wordsmiths who evoke a visceral experience in narrative. I write comprehensive book showcases electing to get into the heart of my reading observations. I dance through genres seeking literary enlightenment and enchantment. Starting in Autumn 2013 I became a blog book tour hostess featuring books and authors. I joined The Classics Club in January 2014 to seek out appreciators of the timeless works of literature whose breadth of scope and voice resonate with us all.

    • Yes, I realise I am quite heavy on the reading challenges this year, but I simply wanted to push myself past the limits of what I normally could read within a twelvemonth! I just added a few series more to my Serious Series Challenge as well! :O

      Hmm, and intervention!?

      I already gave myself one! I edited my full RALs & RC page (top menu option!) to only reflect those that I felt I could honestly accomplish *something!* inside as well as which ones fit me better than others I originally intended to participate in! For instance, I let go of Kelley’s Book Bingo Challenge (couldn’t sort out which books would fit the squares!); Historical Fiction Reading Challenge (clearly, I gravitate towards that genre all the time (see Story Vault!); the Motif one didn’t float my boat as much as I had hoped; and a few others!!

      I intervened on my own behalf! :) Cheers!

      • Oooh I don’t know if I’ve seen your Serious Series Challenge yet. I may have to look that one up and participate in it myself as I really need to finish more series! Curse the fact that I tend to unintentionally pick up books that are part of an ongoing series and then fall in love with them! Thankfully I know at least three of the ones I’m in the middle of are ending this year, but I did just buy two new first installments of a series recently. And I’ve no idea when the second books are coming out. That’s a big fail right there on my part!

        Yay for self-interventions! Really I was only bringing it up because I saw the two challenge posts in a row, you mentioned the various Classics-centric ones the other day, and I was aware of the Book Bingo Challenge and that come December we’ll be doing the 12th Night Readathon* again. :D

        *It should be noted I already have a partial list of books I want to read during the readathon made…

        • Quick reply: I am still doing the SFN Bingo Challenge for science fiction & fantasy books! I only bowed out of the other Bingo card for the same reason I bowed out of the Winter Wonderland Bingo! I was too frustrated attempting to sort out what to read!! :(
