Storygraph has reading challenges set up by regular users and I couldn’t help but join a ton and even make a couple! Here are ones i’ve joined so far. You might have to have a (free) profile to see them. Some of them have time limits, many of them do not.
Obviously I do not plan to do all these next year. I plan to make progress. Most of them don’t have a time limit so i’m free to take my time with them. All the reading challenges will be linked, as you can see, so if you want to check them out you can!

I made 2 reading challenges that are private, as you can make a reading challenge that only you can see, just for you. One is for “Religious Literacy” and was inspired by another reading challenge on storygraph that unfortunately has a time limit and reading religious books, learning about them, I really want to take my time and it’s going to take a lot out of me. I don’t think i’m going to be finished all I want to be in just 2 years. With that pressure, I just wouldn’t read anything at all. So my private one is just for me so I don’t have a time limit (and I can change anything if I want to). The one it’s inspired by is here.
The other one is “Books still on my 40 before 40 list”. On my 30th birthday (i’ll be 34 in February) I made a list of 40 books I want to read before I turn 40. I posted the list on my old blog on blogspot Here. It is not updated! I have 15 books left to read.
I also made 2 reading challenges that anyone on storygraph can join!
Horror Subgenres – Horror subgenres. I made the more extreme ones or certain ones bonus prompts just in case not everyone who wants to join wants to do those. I will be doing all of them. No time limit.
Expand your mind with Nonfiction 2023 – 24 prompts. Different subgenres of nonfiction. You can double/triple etc up (same with Horror Subgenres) if you want. Going for the year 2023. I wanted to make the challenge for myself but there’s no reason I couldn’t share it in case anyone wants to join in. 🙂
