Joining the Diverse Reads Challenge 2017

Mishma is one of my favorite bloggers so when I saw that she’s co-hosting a challenge I had to at least look at it more closely. When I found out it’s a diverse reads challenge, I had to join it. If you’re curious about it or would like to join the challenge too, check out the sign up page.

I also love that there’s a mini challenge to read specific types of books each month. Definitely head over and give it a look!

I’m still sort of focusing on the #DAReadAThon right now so I haven’t gotten my full TBR together for this challenge, but I have started a Goodreads shelf and I’ll keep that updated with the books I’m reading for this challenge. 

What challenges are you taking part in this year?

  1. I’m also joining this challenge! It looks so good, doesn’t it? 😀 I’m joining the 2017 Audiobook Challenge as well. Should definitely check it out. I did it last year and I really enjoyed it!

  2. I participate in the Around the World group challenge on Goodreads and commit to half the books I read being by authors from around the world, which really means, not from the US/UK.

    Last year I read 55 books by authors from 26 countries, so I guess that could also be a kind of Diverse Reads Challenge as that’s my aim, literary voices from cultures other than those most familiar.

    I also join the August #WITMonth meaning I’ll be reading books by women authors in translation during August, I did this last year too.

    And #OneSummerChunkster which this year is going to be The Complete Claudine by Colette.

    My main challenge is to a book a week! Keeping it simple!

    • Those all sound pretty awesome! I’m in the middle of the #DAReadAThon right now and while I’m enjoying the books and diversity, I wish I hadn’t signed up. I feel rushed in reading and writing the reviews so I’m not enjoying them as much as I could be :/ good luck with your challenges!

      • I understand that, my challenges give me an enormous amount of freedom to change my mind, I’ve learned that over the years, how to participate without feeling overcommitted. I generally don’t nominate which books I’m going to read in advance, but my challenges fit with my general reading philosophy. Happy Reading!
