2022 Reading Challenge Sign Ups

Sign ups for the 2022 reading challenges have been open for weeks now, but I like to sign up when I've finished wrapping up the previous years' challenges and reviews.

In 2022, I'm aiming to read 75 books and will be participating in the following 3 reading challenges:
  • Aussie Author Reading Challenge 2022
  • 2022 Nonfiction Reader Challenge
  • Historical Fiction Reading Challenge 2022
If you're wondering why I'm not participating in the Australian Women Writers' Challenge for the first time in 9 years, the challenge has now ended. For more info, see my wrap of the challenge.

Last year I just managed to achieve the Emu level (24 books) of this challenge, but have decided to slip back to Kangaroo level this year.

Hosted by Jo from Booklover Book Reviews, I'll need to read and review 12 books by Australian authors, of which at least 4 are female, 4 are male, 4 are new-to-me authors and at least 3 genres are covered.

You don't need a blog to join in, and you can follow along on Facebook, Twitter or GoodReads.

2022 Nonfiction Reader Challenge

This challenge is hosted by fellow Aussie book blogger Shelleyrae at Book'd Out, and I'm signing up for the Nonfiction Nibbler level.

For this I'll need to read and review 6 books from any of the following categories:

Any suggestions? You can also participate via Goodreads, LibraryThing, Instagram or Twitter

Historical Fiction Reading Challenge 2022

Hosted by Marg at The Intrepid Reader, I've signed up to complete the Renaissance Reader level again this year.

For this I'll need to read 10 historical fiction books to complete the challenge and I'm already putting together a mental list of all the books I want to read.

You can follow my progress during the year on my Challenges 2022 page.


What are your reading goals for 2022? Are you participating in any reading challenges? Do reading challenges motivate you to read more widely? I'd love to know.

    1. Thanks Marg, and fingers crossed for another great year of historical fiction reading. So far, I have one down and nine to go in order to complete the challenge :-)
