The 30 Day Book Challenge

Back in August 2013, one of my favourite book bloggers did this challenge, and I popped in every day to check out her posts. (Becky blogs at Blogs-of-a-Bookaholic – ) For me, I’d spent most of Spring and Summer 2013 trying to avoid reading – because if I don’t, I struggle to write as much and over a year on from when I wanted to release RMT I had to focus on that.

Now that The Rainbow Maker’s Tale is finally out there, and I’m well on my way with Outlanders, I thought I could give myself a bit of a writing break and do some reading again. (It’s not really cheating if I’m writing about reading, is it?) Anyway, I’ve collected a whole bunch of books for my TBR list, which need to be started and that I really want to read 🙂 so be prepared for a bunch of reviews as I get through them, and if you’re interested – come back and check out how I do with my book challenge.


The aim of the 30 Day Book Challenge is to to try and post everyday for 30 days. On each of these days you answer one of the book related questions below. And that’s it! It’s really that simple! Why not try it for yourself? :)


DAY 1. – A book series you wish had gone on longer OR a book series you wish would just end already.
DAY 2. – Favorite side character.
DAY 3. – The longest book you’ve read.
DAY 4. – Book turned into a movie and completely desecrated.
DAY 5. – Your “comfort” book.
DAY 6. – Book you’ve read the most number of times.
DAY 7. – A guilty pleasure book.
DAY 8. – Most underrated book.
DAY 9. – Most overrated book.
DAY 10. – A book you thought you wouldn’t like but ended up loving.
DAY 11. – Favorite classic book.
DAY 12. – A book you wanted to read for a long time but still haven’t.

DAY 19. – A favourite author.
DAY 20. – Favorite childhood book.
DAY 21. – Book you tell people you’ve read, but haven’t (or haven’t
actually finished).
DAY 22. – Least favourite plot device employed by way too many books you actually
enjoyed otherwise.
DAY 23. – Best book you’ve read in the last 12 months.

      There’s no way I could do that (unless I was doing kids books, in which case I probably do more than one a day!)

      Next book in my TBR pile looks good 😉 it’s called Medusa

      lol – I think you’re the first person to squeal on my blog 🙂 Glad it was nicer than psychology stats – that sounds like lots of fun!

      And definitely yes – you’re one of my favourite book bloggers – I kind of feel like I’m back at uni again sometimes reading your posts, and I really loved your 30-day challenge and some of the thoughts that came out of it.

        Ahaha and it was an honour. 😛

        Awwh thank you. Aha! I’m not sure if that’s a good thing or a bad thing, but it’s interesting that it has that effect!

        So glad you enjoyed the challenge, thanks for reading it. 🙂
