Reading Challenges I'm Joining in 2014

The reading challenges I'm joining for the coming year are listed below. I'll be keeping track of my progress for each of them HERE. To see more about any of the challenges just click on the photo to go to that challenge's post.



2014 Netgalley Reading Challenge
January 1, 2014- December 31, 2014
Hosted by: Ariel Avalon

This sounds like a very fun challenge. I have a lot of Netgalley books I've yet to read and hopefully this challenge will push me to get them read. I'm signing up for the hardcore level, to read 21+ Netgalley books.


2014 Historical Fiction Reading Challenge
January 1, 2014- December 31, 2014
Hosted by: Historical Tapestry

I LOVE reading historical fiction, it's my favorite genre, so there was no way I wasn't signing up for this challenge again. I'm SO happy that they've added another level to the challenge, Prehistoric - 50+ books, so that's the level I'm choosing. 



New Author Challenge 2014
January 1, 2014- December 31, 2014
Hosted by: Literary Escapism
#NewAuthorsRC2014

It's always so nice to find new authors you enjoy and that's the reason I love this challenge - it pushes you to try new-to-you authors. Last year I read over 100 new-to-me authors and, while I don't think I'll read that many again, I'm still going to go with the highest level of 50. 



2014 Audiobook Challenge
January 1, 2014- December 31, 2014
Hosted by: The Book Nympho & Hot Listens

I've recently gotten into listening to audiobooks, so when I came across this challenge I knew I'd have to join it. The level I'm choosing is Socially Awkward (Don’t talk to me) 15-20 audiobooks. 



2014 Netgalley & Edelweiss Reading Challenge
January 1, 2014- December 31, 2014
Hosted by: Falling For YA

This is similar to the Netgalley challenge but it also includes Edelweiss and has harder levels, so I'm joining this one as well. The level I'm choosing is Diamond – 100 books.



2014 TBR Pile Reading Challenge
January 1, 2014- December 31, 2014
Hosted by: Bookish

This challenge sounds like a lot of fun. Since you're allowed to move up a level but not down I'm going to choose to read 11-20 books (A Friendly Hug).



Dystopia Reading Challenge 2014
January 1, 2014- December 31, 2014
Hosted by: Blog of Erised

I enjoy reading Dystopian novels every once in awhile and when I saw this challenge I thought it would be fun. The level I'm choosing is Rebel (7 to 12 books).



2014 Review Pile Reading Challenge
January 1, 2014- December 31, 2014
Hosted by: Fiktshun and Phantasmic Reads
#RPRC2014

This is a challenge I need and am SO glad I found it! The level I'm choosing is Adept (40+ books).




Where Are You Reading? 2014
January 1, 2014- December 31, 2014
Hosted by: Book Journey

I love this challenge! It's always so much fun to see a map full of the places you've read at the end of the year, so I'm definitely doing this one again! 



2014 Chunkster Challenge
January 1, 2014- December 31, 2014

There are no levels from which to choose, you are supposed to pick a number that's a challenge for you, so I'm going to go with 5 books.



2014 Reading Challenge: Seriously Series
January 1, 2014- December 31, 2014

I read a lot of series so this sounds like it'd be a lot of fun! There are three categories, so here are the levels I'm choosing for each:
Series started before 2014 - Seriously Serious (7-12 series)
Series started in 2014 - Semi-Serious (1-6 series)
Series rereads - Semi-Serious (1-6 series)



Anne & Kristilyn’s 2014 Book Bingo Reading Challenge
January 1, 2014- December 31, 2014

This challenge sounds difficult but also a lot of fun, so I had to join. 




2014 Full House Reading Challenge
January 1, 2014- December 31, 2014
Hosted by: Book Date

This is a completely different kind of challenge than I've ever done, it's a little similar to the Bingo but definitely different. It sounds like so much fun and I had to join!




2014 Rewind Challenge
January 1, 2014- December 31, 2014

This challenge looks like it will be very enjoyable and will push me to read books that have fallen by the wayside. There are no levels, you pick your own goals, so I'm challenging myself to read 25+ books.



2014 Everything YA Reading Challenge
January 1, 2014- December 31, 2014

I love reading YA books so this challenge should be a lot of fun! The goal is to read as many YA books as you can, but I'm going to challenge myself to read 30+ YA books.



2014 Outdo Yourself Reading Challenge
January 1, 2014- December 31, 2014
Hosted by: The Book Vixen

I participated in this challenge last year and challenged myself to read 16+ more than I did. I read 172 books that were over 100 pages in 2012 and, so far, have read 192 books, with 100+ pages, this year. As much as I'd love to again challenge myself to outdo myself by 16+ books I'm not sure I could, so I'm challenging myself to the level: Out of breath (Read 6–10 more books). 



What's In A Name? 2014
January 1, 2014- December 31, 2014
Hosted by: The Worm Hole

This sounds like a fun challenge.



2014 Men in Uniform Reading Challenge
January 1, 2014- December 31, 2014
Hosted by: The Book Vixen

I've seen this challenge for a few years now but have never participated in it. It looks like fun and this year I'm giving it a go. I'm choosing the Sergeant level: Read 1–5 men in uniform novels.




The 2014 Ebook Reading Challenge
January 1, 2014- December 31, 2014
Hosted by: Workaday Reads

 Though I still prefer reading print books, I love the ease of reading on my Kindle and have been reading on it more and more. So I'm joining this challenge again. The level I'm choosing is Hard drive – 75 ebooks.



Romance Reading Challenge 2014
January 1, 2014- December 31, 2014
Hosted by: ...the bookworm...

I love reading romances, as long as they're clean/sweet, so this challenge sounds like it will be great fun! 

My five books:
  1. Made to Last (Where Love Begins #1) by Melissa Tagg
  2. The Dancing Master by Julie Klassen
  3. Sushi for One? (Sushi #1) by Camy Tang
  4. No One to Trust (Hidden Identity #1) by Lynette Eason
  5. Love at Any Cost (The Heart of San Francisco #1) by Julie Lessman



2014 Series Challenge
January 1, 2014- December 31, 2014

Love reading series and this challenge should definitely push me to finish all the books out in the series I'm reading and the ones I'd like to start.



A Year in Re-Reading: a 2014 Reading Challenge
January 1, 2014- December 31, 2014
Hosted by: caffeinatedlife.net

I used to reread books a lot, but ever since I started blogging the number has gone way down. I'm hoping to reread at least 5 books this year, so am choosing the level re-reading pro (5 – 9 books).



2014 Women Challenge
January 1, 2014- December 31, 2014
Hosted by: Peek a Book

I'm choosing Level 4: WONDER WOMAN - read 20+ books written by a woman author. I read a lot of books by women authors so this shouldn't be too hard. :)



Book to Movie Challenge: The Sequel
January 1, 2014- December 31, 2014
Hosted by: Doing Dewey

It's always interesting to compare the movie to the book, so this challenge should be a lot of fun! The level I'm choosing, for now, is Movie Fan - read 3 books and watch their movies.



2014 Prequel & Sequel Challenge
January 1, 2014- December 31, 2014
Hosted by: Novel Heartbeat

This sounds like fun, and I have a lot of series to read, so the level I'm choosing is Amateur (25-50 points).



2014 Quick Fix Challenge
January 1, 2014- December 31, 2014
Hosted by: Jessie's Book Place

The goal of this challenge is to read books under 300 pages. The level I'm choosing is Gorilla glue: 30+ books.



2014 Series Enders Reading Challenge
January 1, 2014- December 31, 2014

This challenge is all about finishing the last book in a series. I think I may have more than this to read, but I'm not sure, so I'm going to start at level 1: 1-5 series enders.



Read It Again, Sam Challenge
January 1, 2014- December 31, 2014
Hosted by: My Reader's Block

I'm already doing a different challenge for rereading so this fits in perfectly with that. The level I'm choosing is Déjà vu: Reread 4 books.



2014 Monthly Motif Reading Challenge
January 1, 2014- December 31, 2014
Hosted by: Bookmark To Blog

Every month is a different challenge and it sounds both challenging and like a lot of fun.



2014 Witches & Witchcraft Reading Challenge
January 1, 2014- December 31, 2014

The level I'm choosing is Initiate: Read 1 – 5 Witchy Books.



2014 Fairy Tales Retold Reading Challenge
January 1, 2014- December 31, 2014
Hosted by: Debz Bookshelf

I love fairy tale retellings, but I'm not sure how many I'll be able to read in 2014. So, the level I'm choosing, for now, is Poor Cobbler: 1-3 books - but I'm hoping I'll be able to increase it! :)



Read Scotland 2014
January 1, 2014- December 31, 2014
Hosted by: Peggy Ann's Post

Sounds like a fun challenge. The level I'm choosing is Just A Keek (a little look): 1-4 books read.



Reading Challenge Addict 2014
January 1, 2014- December 31, 2014

My final challenge is the Reading Challenge Addict 2014. I am addicted to reading challenges, they are tremendous fun and whenever I see a new reading challenge I'm tempted to join. I've participated in this challenge before and it definitely helps me complete the challenges I join. The level I'm choosing is Out of This World: 16+ Challenges (Entered & Completed).
