Pick-a-Theme Challenge

Pick-a-Theme is a 2019 Reading Challenge where you choose a theme each month and read books that fit that theme. It is hosted @ She's Got Books On Her Mind

I've never been good at yearly long reading challenges. I've wondered why that is. 💡 I've only ever done well with monthly challenges. I know others struggle with keeping up with yearly challenges as well so I created this challenge for the challenge strugglers out there. 

Pick a theme every month. Any theme will do. The theme can be a topic (ex. Witches, Time Travel, or ARCs), a genre (ex. Romance, Sci-Fi, or Horror), based on age (ex. YA, Middle Grade, or Adult), or it can be a literal theme (ex. Family, Betrayal, or Revenge). Choose how many books you want to read per month, per theme. Read.

An added bonus that I plan to do is review the books I read and have at least one other blog post around the subject whether be a list of books with the same theme I enjoyed, what to read next, a book tag, or a discussion on the theme itself. You decide if you want to do this too but it is optional.

  • You can read any type of books for this challenge. Picture books, graphic novels, manga, and audio books are allowed in this challenge.
  • Re-reads are allowed as long as you don't use it for more than one theme.
  • You don't have to read a theme every month. You can choose which months you want to participate in. Saying that, there is an overall sign-up link that you add your name to.
  • You may join whether or not you have a blog. You can join through Goodreads, twitter, or any other appropriate site. 
  • Every month there will be a wrap-up post available. You can add reviews, a tbr list, discussions, and view other readers progresses through that post. If you want you can just comment what you've read as well. 
  • The level of books you read each month can change.
  • You can use books you've read for other challenges for this challenge. (You can even work a theme around each challenge like reading Mount TBR books for a month.)

  • Novice: Read 2-3 books around your theme.
  • Intermediate: Read 4-5 books around your theme.
  • Advanced: Read 6-7 books around your theme.
  • Expert: Read 8+ books around your theme.
*This is applied to per month or per year. Whatever you like. Remember, you can choose to be a Novice one month, an expert the next, or not read based on a theme one of the months. It's all up to you.
