These are all my challenges for 2023 (for now). Are you joining any challenges in 2023?
Lots of challenges this year for you! Good luck with them all!
Good luck! And I hope you have a lot of fun in the process.
Good luck with all your challenges! It looks like a nice mix.

There are challenges for all levels of writers, from beginners to experts. My Book Challenges are a great way to put your writing skills to the test. The challenges are all different, which give you a different perspective on the writing process…. As authors, we are always on the hunt for new, exciting challenges to embrace.

Wow, good for you. That’s a lot of reading challenges. I hope you make all of your goals.
Good luck with all of your challenges!
Thank you, Yvonne!
Oooh good luck with those.
So far I’ve only set goodreads (50), an alphabet challenge, a cover rainbow, and a couple of genre challenges on storygraph… but I’ve opened up the historical, non-fiction and library challenges that you’ve linked to because I read a lot of all of those so I’m intrigued to see more! Thank you (I think? LOL)
Looks we have quite a few challenges in common. The only one I’m not doing is the audio challenge…..I’m too random on that. I’ve got a couple more added on that seem like fun too. It’ll be fun following your success on the all the challenges as we make our way through lots of good books! 🙂
These are all good ones! Yay for audiobooks. 🎧
Good luck! I know you will do well. 🏆
I’m excited for Susan’s Bookish Books Reading Challenge! Though I’m only aiming for 11-20 books with that one myself. Good luck with all your challenges this year. 😀
Thank you, Lark.
Good luck on the challenges. I will be doing the audiobook challenge and my goodreads goal is 100.
Great!! I hope we all have a wonderful reading year!
Very impressive goals! The earbuds being surgically implanted comment made me laugh. I feel that way sometimes. Good luck with your goals and have fun with your challenges. Can’t wait to see what you read!
Thank you, Katherine!
These are really great reading goals! Good luck!!
These are really impressive goals!! I wish you all the luck hitting them all. <3
Thank you, Leslie!
Good luck with your challenges, and I’m delighted you are participating in the Nonfiction Reader.
Thank you, Shelleyrae! Thanks for hosting the challenge!
I’ll be doing Audio, Library and GoodReads with you so we can cheer each other on. The Bookish Books sounds like a fun-themed one. I used to do Historical Fiction. Great picks!
Go get ’em, Wendy!
Thank you, Sophia! We’re going to enjoy these challenges!
WOW! I love the challenges that you chose. The multiple levels make it fun and provide readers with more flexibility. Good luck!
We are doing several of the same challenges, I see. It’s going to be a great reading year. Good luck with your challenges!
Yes! Thank you, Wendy!
I’m doing the GRs challenge like I usually do and the Audiobook Challenge. I should look into the library challenge especially since Anne is co-hosting it. Good luck with all your challenges!
Thank you, Rachel!
I am doing several of these, but haven’t done my sign up posts yet. I am interested in the Bookish Reads challenge. I love books about books, libraries and bookstores, so off to investigate and then get those sign up and tracking posts done. Good luck to you on all of these challenges. I hope you find lots of great books to fill in those spots, Wendy.
Thank you, Carla. I love bookish books too!
I am doing 12 books for the Library challenge as well! Good luck Wendy.
Thank you, Kimberly!
I might have to sign up for that Historical Fiction challenge! Thus far, my only read challenge for 2023 is the Goodreads challenge and my goal is to read 52 books in 2023. My goal for last year was 75 and it was almost too much, so I’m lowering it down a bit.
It should be a comfortable number of books. This is my first year doing the historical challenge.
Best of luck with your challenges in 2023! Other than the Goodreads challenge (I’ve set my count at 52, but I’m sure I’ll read more than that), I am doing a Buzzwordathon challenge and a 5-4-3-2-1 challenge.
Pam @ Read! Bake! Create!
The Buzzwordathon sounds great! I hope you enjoy it.
I don’t think of myself as doing any challenges, but for several years I have put a goal in Goodreads so I guess that is a challenge. My goal this year is 100 books. I don’t have any doubt, Wendy, that you will be able to complete all of your challenges and have fun doing them. Here’s to a great year of reading in 2023!
Thank you, Linda!
I will be unofficially doing the nonfiction challenge, the library challenge, and the audiobook challenge, LOL, because I already do them. I also set my goal to 150 instead of 200 this year…partly because I will be working and partly because I want to try and tackle a few bigger/longer books. Good luck, Wendy, I am sure you will do well!
Thank you, Cindy. I’m sure you’ll do great too!
Wow – your challenges are inspiring, Wendy! And you beat me by 100 books with the Goodreads Challenge last year, lol. Happy reading and listening!
Thank you, Teri! You have a much more busy life than I have!
All the best with all of these challenges Wendy. Hope you enjoy them all!
Thank you, Mallika !
Good luck with all your challenges!
Thank you, Kristi!
I hope you enjoy your challenges and look forward to seeing you on the Library Love!
Thank you, Anne. I’m really looking forward to the Library challenge.
Hi there Wendy!
Wow, all of these sounds really good! I haven’t booked any challenges yet, will look at it next week when we are back home. But I think I’ll join the historical challenge!
This is my first year for the historical one. I can’t wait to see which challenges you choose!
Okay, I freaking LOVE these challenges. I could probably blow through the goals for audiobooks and the library (since my primary method of reading is audiobooks from the library haha). It’d be fun to participate in some of these and see what happens. How fun!
I love challenges too! they just make all the reading more fun for me.
Good luck on all of these.
Thank you, Deanna!
Good luck Wendy! You’ve got this!!📚📚☕🤗💜
Thank you, Susan!
I’m so glad you’ll be joining me for the Bookish Books Reading Challenge! I’m excited about it. I considered the nonfiction reading challenge for this year, but I didn’t do very well with it last year, so I decided to skip it this go round. Maybe next year.
Good luck with all your challenges!
The nonfiction challenge was difficult for me too. I’m excited about the bookish books challenge!
Those look fun! Good luck with all your goals!
Thank you, Kami!
That’s a lot of challenges Wendy! I’m doing the Goodreads, Audiobook and Library Love challenges this year. Good luck and have fun!
Thank you, Jodie! Good luck on your challenges too!
Wow so many challenges, good luck in them all 💕
Thank you, Jenny!
I always love seeing what challenges other readers are up to! Best of luck with these!
Thank you, Amanda. I love to see who’s doing which challenges too!
I have the exact same challenges for the non fiction and the good reads challenges. I haven’t heard of a couple of these though.
Good Luck with all of these in 2023 X
Thank you, Janette!
