A Year in Re-Reading: a 2014 Reading Challenge hosted by caffeinatedlife.net

While my to-read pile is constantly expanding and shrinking, there’s always been a couple of books in the back of my head that I’ve been meaning to re-visit, either to see if my understanding of the novel has changed or just re-read it for fun, but I keep putting it off for one reason or another. So I decided to that maybe a reading challenge will compel me to re-visit a couple of these books in 2014 and thought maybe others would be interested in joining me for this 🙂

The (very brief) rundown to this challenge:

  • This reading challenge runs from 1 January 2014 to 31 December 2014
  • You can join at any time
  • Any book is acceptable in this challenge so long as you’ve read it in the past; perhaps it was a DNF you wanted to revisit, perhaps it’s a book you’ve read and loved but don’t remember the details too much. It’s totally up to you how you want to define this 😉
  • Linking your reviews to THIS POST is optional but strongly recommended just so that we can share titles and thoughts with other bloggers, learn new titles out there and get to know each other in the process 🙂

Levels (sorry, not feeling very creative coming up with these levels, lol; I’m pretty laxed about this):

  • 1 – 4 books — Occasional re-reader
  • 5 – 9 books — Re-reading pro!
  • 10+ books — Re-reading champ!

Interested in joining me for this reading challenge this year? Feel free to sign up in the linky widget below and post your reviews that are part of this reading challenge to THIS POST (which will remain open until 31 December 2014):

Please note: If, for whatever reason, the following widget refuses to allow your link through and the url you are inputting is too long, try using a shortlink (e.g. bit.ly) and try again.

Edit: And because I’m forgetful and new to this, here’s the code to add a link on your blog:

Please spread the word (through Facebook, Twitter, etc.)–the more, the merrier! If you have any questions (or if the widget is acting up–this is the first time I’m using Simply Linked so *fingers crossed*), please feel free to drop me a comment in this post or email me. Have fun and I look forward to seeing what everyone’s reading next year 🙂

  1. Hi Lianne! 🙂

    I decided that this secondary challenge of yours works in well nicely for my attempt to re-read the Children’s Lit selections that I wanted to write about on my blog! 🙂 I saved both this badge & Shakespeares to use in my sidebar & posts! The coding box said to “save and upload” on your own sites, so I hope I did that right!? I’ll link back to your blog as I always do! 🙂 Wicked!

    • Awesome! Looks good on your blog–and wow, looks like you’ve got some awesome reading challenges ahead for you this year 🙂 Thanks for participating, can’t wait to hear about the books you’ll be re-reading!

  2. Oh I have been thinking about rereading more. I have some favorite books I really like and would love to read again. But at the same time, there’s so many new books I really want to read … Decisions, decisions, decisions …

    • I know what you mean, I’m trying to balance between reading new books that have been recently published, ARCs, books I’ve been meaning to get around to and books I want to re-read. But it’s a nice dilemma to have, lol 🙂

  3. Thanks for doing this! I’m looking forward to lots of re-reading this year. 🙂 For unknown reasons my link posted three times???? Sorry!

    • You’re welcome! I used to re-read a lot but this challenge has shown how much my reading has changed over the years (good to revisit a few titles though xD) 🙂
