📚Reading Challenges I’m Doing in 2020📚

Fairyloot Reading Challenge

I got my very first Fairyloot box in November! One of the items in it was a reading journal for 2020 and one of the things inside it was a reading challenge. It has a lot of different prompts which I would like to explore.

Mount TBR Challenge

For this challenge, you choose a level and you have to try and read at least that many books. For this challenge, books only count if you owned them before 2020. I have a bunch of books that I own and have not read yet, and books I own that I would like to reread.


  • Pike’s Peak – 12 books
  • Mont Blanc – 24 books
  • Mt. Vancouver – 36 books
  • Mt. Ararat – 48 books
  • Mt. Kilimanjaro – 60 books
  • El Toro – 75 books
  • Mt. Everest – 100 books
  • Olympus Mons – 150+ books

Virtual Mount TBR Challenge

This challenge is similar to the Mount TBR Challenge except it involves books you do not own, or any books you can temporarily check out. I have over 1 500 books on my TBR list and I want to at least take a small chunk out of that this year, so I signed up for this challenge.


  • Mt. Rum Doodle – 12 books
  • Mt. Crumpit – 24 books
  • Mt. Munch – 36 books
  • White Plume Mountain – 48 books
  • Stormness Head – 60 books
  • Mt. Mindolluin – 75 books
  • Mt. Seleya – 100 books
  • Mt. Olumpus – 150+ books

Monthly Key Words Challenge

In this challenge, each month has 6 words and you need to try and read a book each month that corresponds with at least one of those words. Sometimes I have trouble choosing a book, but this could help give me an idea, at least for one book each month.

52 Books in 52 Weeks

Last year I was not able to complete this challenge, but I want to read more books this year and I am hoping that I will be able to find books to meet all the prompts.

Color Coded Challenge

In this challenge, there are nine color categories: blue, red, yellow, green, brown, black, white, any other color, and the implication of a color. For each category, you need to find a book that either has the color in its title, or the cover must be mostly that color. I enjoyed doing this challenge last year and I am excited to do it again.

Monthly Motifs Challenge

In this challenge, you need to find a book each month that fits its motifs. Like for the last monthly challenge, this could help me choose the next book to read when I get stumped.

Library Love Challenge

This challenge is like the Virtual Mount TBR Challenge, except it only involves library books. I have not been reading many library books as of late, so I thought this would be a good idea to try so that I can start visiting the library more, instead of spending most of my paycheck on new books.


  • Dewey Decimal – 12 books
  • Thrifty Readers – 24 books
  • Overdrive Junkie – 36 books
  • Library Addict – 48 books
  • Library Card on Fire – 60+ books

Popsugar Challenge

This challenge is similar to the 52 Books in 52 Weeks challenge with a few extra advanced prompts. Last year I tried to tackle this by just reading books and hoping they matched up to the prompts. This year I may do that for a while, but this year I want to make sure that I try to fulfill all the prompts.

What’s In a Name? Challenge

In this challenge, there are six prompts, and you have to find at least one book for each of the prompts. I’m excited to try and find some books for the prompts.

Monthly Book Awards

This challenge may be a little bit difficult because every month you need to read a book that got an award that month, though the year does not matter.

Alphabet Soup Challenge

For this challenge, you have to find a book to match every letter of the alphabet. I did this last year and thought it would be fun to do again.

Goodreads Reading Challenge

Last year I did not manage to finish my Goodreads Challenge but I am determined to complete it this year. I set my goal at 60 books, but really, I want to go much higher than that.

Reading Challenge Addict

This is a challenge for those who sign up for a bunch of reading challenges. I want to complete as many challenges as I can, so I thought I should sign up for this challenge.


  • Easy as Pie: 1-5 Challenges (Entered & Completed)
  • On the Roof: 6-10 Challenges (Entered & Completed)
