2018 New Release Challenge Sign Up

2018 New Release Challenge logo

Hello Guys, I have read five books this year and hopefully it’s still counting! There were ups and downs last year, and I only have read 24 books. Although that means I still have some literary appetite, it makes me kind of down when seeing others’ numbers.

So what else can I do to boost up my reading activity except to join challenges? I love reading challenges! If not because challenges, I wouldn’t be joining reader community in my country. I wouldn’t be a reader. I still remember how challenges made me so thrilled and excited to read books and review it. Oh yes, it wasn’t easy because not all books are my cup of tea, but I think I enjoyed the effort.

I decided that I would be joining challenges for this year. Not only because I love challenge, but I really need a great escape from reality. I already join two challenges, now. The two challenges are TBR Pile Challenge by Adam and the Beat the Backlist Challenge by  novelknight . I am really excited to finish those challenges ! They are about the TBR piles, and it helps me so much to reducing my TBR books that piled up so high.

I thought two challenges would be enough for me this year. Until I accidentally found 2018 New Release Challenge hosted by Lexie. I think this is a fresh air to my reading list because until now, all of my TBR is a backlist books and I do want to read new releases book some time. Also, seeing the terms and conditions of the challenges, it’s not a pressure challenge that I avoid. We can still read one or two release books of the year and it’s just okay. So, I think I wanted to join this. As I mentioned in my previous posts, I had some issues with my health (mental health) that makes me a little bit hard to concentrate, so the – not- so – pressuring- reading- challenges hopefully will help me.

The rules for the 2018 New Release Challenge are simple:

  • Books have to be released and reviewed in 2018.
  • Other challenges can be used as well, if you are participating in the Netgalley / Edelweiss challenge or in the COYER challenge, books can count towards more than one challenge, as long as the ones you use for the 2018 New Release Reading Challenge qualify to the other rules.
  • The minimum length for a book to qualify is 100 pages, it can be in any format though, physical, e-book, ARC or audiobook.
  • The New Book Release Challenge is open from January 1st through December 31st 2018, and sign-ups are open until September 1st 2018.
  • You don’t have to be a blogger to participate, you can link to your review on Goodreads or Booklikes instead – so don’t be shy!
  • If you want to spread the love, please use #2018NewRelease on Twitter

So here we go, The 2018 New Release Challenge ! Wish me luck, guys.
