Sign Up Post: 2017 New Release Challenge & New-To-Me Reading Challenge

by Aleen @ Lampshade Reader

Okay, so this is the first time I’m actually signing up for a challenge. Since I read a lot of new releases anyway, this should be a great challenge for me to do.

It’s a year long challenge hosted by Lexxie over @ Unconventional Book Reviews & Stormi @ Books, Review, Movies, Oh My!

The rules for the 2017 New Release Challenge are simple:

  • Books have to be released and reviewed in 2017.
  • Other challenges can be used as well, if you are participating in the Netgalley / Edelweiss challenge or in the COYER challenge, books can count towards more than one challenge, as long as the ones you use for the 2017 New Release Reading Challenge qualify to the other rules.
  • The minimum length for a book to qualify is 100 pages, it can be in any format though, physical, e-book, ARC or audiobook.
  • The New Book Release Challenge is open from January 1st through December 31st 2017, and sign-ups are open until February 15th 2017.
  • You don’t have to be a blogger to participate, you can link to your review on Goodreads or Booklikes instead – so don’t be shy!

There are five levels  in the New Release Challenge:

  1. 1-30 books per year – New Release Newbie
  2. 31-60 books per year – New Release Pro
  3. 61-100 books per year – New Release Veteran
  4. 101-200 books per year – New Release Enthusiast
  5. 200+ books per year – New Release Obsessed

My goal is to read at least 60 new releases in 2017.

I’m also doing the New-to-Me Challenge hosted by Anna @ Herding Cats and Burning Soup. That’s right! Two challenges, shouldn’t be so hard.

The Rules:

Anything “new” to you. For example…
–First time reading an author
–first book in a series
–first book you’ve read from a series (doesn’t have to be book one)
–first time trying a genre/subgenre
–a debut book from an author (even if you’ve read them before)
*books need to be over 80 pages

The Levels:

To complete the challenge you need to read 12 books minimum.
You can pick any number of books above that!
In your sign up post please indicate your goal. You can always up the goal!
My goal is to read at least 30 new-to-me authors in 2017!

Turn on the light!

Good luck on your challenges, Aleen! I did my first challenge this year – the #ShelfLove challenge – and I’ve really enjoyed it. Not sure yet if I’ll do any in 2017 but they can definitely be motivating!
