Fictionophile’s Reading Challenges for 2021 #readingchallenge2021 #bookbloggers #2021readingchallenges

Last year I completed five of the six reading challenges I set out for myself.

This year, I vow to complete EIGHT.

#1 is the Goodreads Reading Challenge.
For this challenge I aim to read 100 titles in 2021.

#2 is the NetGalley Reading Challenge.

For this challenge I’m aiming for 50 NetGalley titles read in 2021.

#3 is the Edelweiss Reading Challenge

For this challenge I’m aiming to read 25 Edelweiss titles in 2021.

#4 I plan to participate in Andrea’s “What’s In A Name” Reading Challenge again this year. To sign up for this challenge visit:

#5 I plan to read books set in Ireland and/or written by Irish Authors during the month of March as part of Cathy’s 7th annual “Reading Ireland” challenge.  There is no set number of books for this challenge, just as many as you can fit it that fit the criteria. She has not yet put up the post for this challenge as she usually does it closer to the month of March. Check her blog nearer the time:

#6 I also plan to take part in Cathy’s “20 Books Of Summer” challenge again this year.  I’ll pick my twenty titles nearer the challenge which runs from June 1, 2021 – Sept. 1, 2021.

#7   I’ve created another Bookbloggers Fiction Challenge for 2021.  Please feel free to join in.  This is a ‘just for fun’ challenge which has 8 prompts.

There is no formal sign-up for Bookbloggers Fiction Challenge. Whether you want to make a Goodreads shelf, declare your participation on social media, make a blog post, share an Instagram story, or say nothing at all, you’re welcome.

My only request is that if you do post somewhere online about the challenge, please give me a link back so more readers can learn about #BB2021FRC

Feel free to nab this graphic if you plan on participating.and here are the books I intend to read for this challenge:

#8 I plan to enter the Historical Fiction Reading Challenge. I plan to participate at the ‘Victorian Reader‘ level by reading five historical fiction titles in 2021.

Five historical fiction titles that I might possibly read for this challenge are:
1.) “The Address” by Fiona Davis
2.) “The Hollows” by Jess Montgomery
3.) “The Wartime Sisters” by Lynda Cohen Loigman
4.) “Without the Moon” by Cathi Unsworth
5.) “A Splendid Ruin” by Megan Chance

Do YOU participate in any reading challenges? I find them good fun.

    Thank you for sharing this challenge! I knew about Marg’s Historical Fiction Reading Challenge, but only knew of one other person who might be trying it. I am so glad to find another person; after all, the fun of reading challenges is to do them with others! I hope you don’t mind, I mentioned your list of reading challenges in a blog post about the HF Reading Challenge. You’ve inspired me to read a lot more. ❤

    Yes, I am doing challenges, I can’t resist not challenging myself. I will be signing up for your edelweiss challenge again this year Lynne. It really helped me to knock off a bunch of books that I had on my shelf. I will be doing your BookBloggers one as well. I am doing the Library challenge (just trying to read books from the library which I do anyway), What’s in a name and the 52Club which is similar to the Popsugar challenge but the prompts are a bit easier. I signed up for Mystery Genre Bingo. I also hope to do a small challenge of readathon each month such as romance in February, Ireland in March, Christmas in July etc. I also came up with turning Spell the Month in books into a challenge for me. I am going to select books to spell the month with the goal to read at least half of them during the month. So, for someone who said I was cutting back, nope, that didn’t happen.

    Ahahaha, challenges – I have the very bad habit of coming on board very late, and simply retrofitting books I have already read to suit the categories. This year, though, I decided to make my own A-Z lists for authors and titles, because they’re all books I wanted to read anyway and I’m a big nerd who finds alphabetising really soothing. Fingers crossed for both of us!


  20. I’m doing What’s In A Name again along with When Are You Reading hosted by Sam at Taking On A World Of Words. Plus 20 Books of Summer has a regular place in my calendar. However, I can’t resist joining in with yours – such interesting categories that I might be able to match up with a few books from my TBR pile. Also I’ve just seen Fiction Fan’s Wanderlust Bingo and I am sorely tempted by that…

  21. Yes, I do enjoy challenges, tho I initially signed up for fewer this year. darn, Lynne, you know I can’t stop myself from signing up (figuratively at least) for your Bookbloggers 2021 Challenge and I’ll be joining you for the March reads challenge too.

    Can you have multiple reading challenges on Goodreads, or do you have separate accounts?

    Good luck Lynne!!! Some great looking Challenges. I’ve signed up to 5 different ones on Goodreads this year and have a couple written down to see if I can complete them with the books from other challenges, but haven’t officially signed up them as don’t want to put too much pressure on myself. Happy reading!!! ❤❤

  27. Wow so many challenges! I’ve signed up for the Goodreads, Netgalley and What’s In A Name challenges myself and I will probably join the 20 Books Of Summer one again as well this year. I’ve also signed up for the Beat The Backlist challenge.

  28. I think I might try out the #BB2021FRC it’s a year long challenge right? I think that will bring me to about 5 challenges maybe. I’m going to be putting a post together soon about all I’m planning on doing.

    Good luck! I’m doing the Goodreads Challenge again, this time with 100 books and would like to do one or two others as well. Will ponder over which ones.

    Lynne, one of these challenges is a lot, eight altogether is amazing! They are all so tempting and apart from the Goodreads which I do every year I might do some of these. Great post and Happy Reading!! 😀
