Women’s Fiction Reading Challenge

Women's Fiction Reading Challenge 2016Funny that I just discovered this challenge (as 2016 comes to a close) over at the excellent Book Date web site.

The Women’s Fiction Reading Challenge 2016 is a challenge to read a certain number of Women’s Fiction books in a year: you choose the level of your commitment, and it ranges anywhere from less than 5 to over 30.

You can report the books either through your blog or by creating a shelf on your Goodreads, which makes it very flexible. Book Reviews are not necessary, but appreciated, and there is a link available to include these reviews.

Sounds right up my alley! Both as someone who would take the challenge for the many women’s fiction books I am reading and reviewing anyway each year, and as an avid reader who will have  a ‘one-stop-shop’ for seeing what others are reading and recommending in this genre.

So, while I discovered it late for 2016, it gives me something to plan on in 2017. And you, readers? Any reading challenges you take part in that you’d like to share?

    Reading challenges are fun for me but only till they don’t start becoming a burden. This year I kept my goodreads challenge to a bare minimum of 24 books because i wanted to read quality books at my pace. Good luck for your challenge xo

      Agree with you, Ishita! We already have so many commitments, and *shudder to think* we wouldn’t want reading to ever become a chore. But in this case, women’s fiction is largely what I’m reading anyway. And I like the light-approach of this challenge – you can read as few as 5 or less, so it can also appeal to people to read out of their genre. Ti auguro un buon weekend!
