Reading Goals and Challenges for 2023

Beat the Backlist 2024

Beat the Backlist is a yearly reading challenge hosted by Austine Decker. The goal is to help participants read some of the books lingering on their TBR stacks from years past. There are (optional) reading prompts to help motivate or increase the fun. You can follow my challenge progress on this page, which I update monthly.

Read Harder 2024

Read Harder is hosted by BookRiot and contains a list of 24 prompts. These will help participants read more thoughtfully and diversely. I started using a reading tracker spreadsheet that included the prompts, so I figured I’d give it a try. Check out my progress here.

TTT Bookish Goals Challenge for 2024

This is more of a self-challenge. These goals first appeared in my Top Ten Tuesday post back in January called Bookish Goals for 2024.

Reading Goals: 200 Books

As of the beginning of March, I’ve read 56 books, so I’m on target to easily meet this goal.

Backlist Reading Goals

Goal: 3-5 Classics. So far this year, I’ve reread WUTHERING HEIGHTS.

Goal: 3-5 backlist Nonfiction titles: So far, I’ve read STAMPED: RACISM, ANTIRACISM AND YOU by Jason Reynolds and Ibram X. Kendi and GENDERQUEER: A MEMOIR by Maia Kobabe.

Goal: 10-12 Backlist titles: I’ve read about 20 backlist titles so far this year, which is a little more than one third of the books I’ve read.

Beat the Backlist: I joined the Beat the Backlist 2024 Reading Challenge and have tracked the books I’ve read for those prompts on that page.

Book Riot’s Read Hard(er) 2024 Challenge: I also joined Book Riot’s Read Hard(er) 2024 Reading Challenge. The books I’ve counted toward those prompts are listed on the page linked above.
