I am not the kind of person that re-reads many books, which in my personnel opinion is a little bit  silly of me. I keep over a hundred books on my bookshelf with the idea to re-read them but I hardly ever do. 2016 I plan to change that, I am setting myself and whoever else is keen to join a 2016 re-read challenge. The aim of this challenge is pretty self explanatory , We/I aim to re-read at least one book a month for the entire year of 2016.

Many of you are like me and use goodreads as their reading tally and as you know, they don’t let you include a book multiple times for said re-read. My way of changing this is recording the date you first read the book in the updates of your second/third or whatever re-read of the book. This at least leads the book to be included for 2016. It is not an ideal solution but I digress.

Okay so, I want to set challenges for each month but please note that these challenges are subject to change if you have an even better idea than I.

January: A Re-Read of a favourite childhood book.

February: A Re-Read that tugs at your heart strings.

March: A Re-Read in preparation for a sequel.

April: Re-Read a book that made you cry.

May: Re-Read a book with less then 250 pages

June: Re-Read a book with 500 or more pages

July: A Re-Read of a book you read this time last year.

August: Re-Read a book from a favourite author.

September: Re-Read a favourite sci-fi book.

October: Re-Read a book featuring a mental disability

November: Re-Read a book written in interesting prose ( verse, email, letters etc)

December: Re-Read a trade or graphic novel


Would any of you be interested in doing this Re-Read challenge with my in 2016? I think it will be a blast from the past quite literally. Do you also have recommendations for monthly themes? I am free to suggestions and would also love to know what books you would like to read again. I will be doing a monthly post on which book I have decided to read and a mini review/thoughts on the book the second time round.

Hope you are all having a good week and I will be back again very soon. 🙂

  1. Oooh this is such a cool idea! I’m not doing any challenges besides the Goodreads challenge next year (it totally did not work for me) but I love the idea of rereading specific themed books. So cool 😉

      I know what you mean it can be hard to juggle multiple reading challenges along with life. Hell my goodreads goal is usually hard enough to complete so I totally get you, I super appreciate the support Emily thankyou for commenting once again 🙂

  2. Hello! I am so excited to join this challenge (: I was preparing my post when I noticed that May is missing- can you please let me know what the theme will be that month? Thank you!
