I've been gone a while. I started reading fanfiction to escape and I got sucked in an abyss.

I have no idea if someone else is hosting similar challenges. I just grabbed some of what I have hosted before.

Here's to a happy year of great reading
Jan2023: Not much has changed. Writing a fanfiction now O_o as well as reading but I bought 7 new books in December and hope to get those read soon. Crossing fingers about adding challenges (late!)

Second Chances

Second Chances
Reading Challenge

hosted at Literary Escapism

Sign- up here

Every reader has been there: we’ve all read a book that made us moan and groan in frustration before deciding it wasn’t worth our precious reading time to finish it. So, we put the book down, quit reading the series, blacklist the author, or sometimes, even refuse to read anymore from that genre. (That last one is a little extreme, but I have heard about it happening.)  So I came up with an idea: Second Chances. For every book, series, author and even genre that you’ve given up on, Second Chances challenges you to go back and try it again.

Here are the guidelines:
  1. The challenge will run from January 1, 2013 through December 31, 2013.
  2. Since this is a Second Chances challenge, there is no restriction on choosing your novels. They can definitely be from other challenges. However, the authors, series, books and genre must be something you gave up on – whether it’s a novel or a novella, all you have to do is try a different novel from that author, series or genre.
  3. I want this to be an easy challenge, so you can pick to do either 15, 25 or 50 Second Chances. It all depends on how fast you read and how adventurous you want to be.  If you reach your goal halfway through the year, don’t stop. Any author you give a Second Chances to can be added to Mr. Linky. We all want to know about your Second Chance experience.
  4. After giving a book/series/author/genre a Second Chance, write your review and then come back here and add your link to Mr. Linky. Make sure you include your name and the author, but adding the title is completely up to you.
  5. Bloggers or Non-Bloggers alike are welcome. You don’t have to have a site to participate. You can link up via Facebook, GoodReads or even Amazon if you’d like.

 I have two authors that I've blacklisted and a series I couldn't stand so my goal is to. . .
 read three books
