2022 Read your bookshelf challenge

Hello my fellow bookish friends! 

Today I am sharing another reading challenge I will be participating in come 2022. This is the third one that I will be doing! 

It is the "2022 Read Your Bookshelf Challenge" hosted by Chantel at An Intentional Life. I heard about this one from Chautona Havig (thank you!), and once I checked it out I knew I had to do it. 

It seems like a pretty easy challenge-and definitely low pressure-one prompt a month:

January: quiet-any kind of word that represents quiet in the title, like silent or still

February: love in the title

March: growth, something growing or having to do with growth

April: your initials in the title

May: a new-to-you author

June: A book on the cover

July: a book you have been avoiding

August: a body part in the title (like Head in the Clouds by Karen Witemeyer)

September: a collection of poems, short stories, or whatever works for you

October: "secret" in the title (The Secret Garden)

November-cozy or nostalgic (includes books that make you feel that way)

December: a mostly white cover

  1. This reading challenge sounds like a lot of fun. I know I own a lot of unread books that are gathering dust on my bookshelves... maybe this challenge would encourage me to read more of them in 2022.

    1. Lark, that is my goal!!!! I am doing several challenges that will be encouraging me to do that (I haven't published all of them yet)! This one is one of the easier ones but sounds great!

  2. I like the sound of this one- I've been thinking of doing a couple challenges after taking the last couple years off.

    1. Greg, I am still new to the blogging/reading challenges community so I want to do ALL the challenges and will end up doing 7, but I have made it where they are kind of interrelated to make it more manageable. But, I seriously had a hard time narrowing it down to 7 ;)

  3. This challenge sounds great. I need to go through the challenges and figure out which ones I will do.

    1. Wendy, I took time on Saturday and finally finalized my list :)

  4. Thanks for stopping by my blog, I appreciate that. Your blog looks great and I like and need this 2022 challenge. Somehow the books on my shelves do not get read as I gravitate toward new releases.

    1. Diane, I understand that completely. Yet, we keep buying new books and putting them on our shelves too, with great intentions, LOL!
