2020 Wrap-Ups & 2021 Sign-Ups #1

Time for wrap-ups! As I do many reading challenges every year, I thought it would always be better to split the wrap-up posts  into a series.

Some of these can still be considered ‘actively’ doing as some of my December books also qualify for it, but since they are (1) complete (2) and will be wrapped-up in December’s monthly wrap-up for final tally, these will be the official completed ones.

Will I do it again in 2021?

No. I think I’ve already reached the goals at least two years in a row, plus I am not that interested in dystopia these days since, you know, living in 2020.

Challenge Rules: (Sign-up)

  • You can read any book that is from the mystery/suspense/thriller/crime genres. Any sub-genres are welcome as long as they incorporate one of these genres.
  • You don’t need a blog to participate but you do need a place to post your reviews to link up. (blog, Goodreads, Instagram, etc.)
  • Make a goal post and link it back here with your goal for this challenge.
  • Books need to at least 100 pages long. Please no short stories.
  • Crossovers with other challenges are fine.
  • The Challenge will run from Jan. 1st to Dec. 31st. (Sign up ends March 15th)

I did the Inspector level (26-35) in 2019, and the Special Agent level (36-55) this year. Since I didn’t get to 55 books yet, I will do it again next year at the same level!


And so, that’s all for this week! Next week, I will have wrap-ups and sign-ups (hopefully) for some more of the year-long challenges.

One thought on “2020 Wrap-Ups & 2021 Sign-Ups #1

  1. Can’t blame you for not being in the mood for dystopia these days.
    Glad you’ll be joining the Cloak and Dagger challenge again.
