2020 reading challenges


In GoodReads, the Action Heroine group is once again doing the
Action heroine fans yearly challenge. I’ve joined it with the initial goal of 20 books.

This will be the third year that I’m participated in this challenge. You can count in comics, books, novellas, reread, library books, tbr books, collections, so it’s pretty easy.

Just before Christmas, I bought five Buffy books from a second hand bookstore and I have a stack of Buffy comics, too, so I’m starting with them.

Books read
1, Cameron Dokey: Here be Monsters
2, Alison Morton: Insurrectio
3, Jana DeLeon: Lethal Bayou Beauty
4, Mel Odom: Unnatural Selection
5, Kevin J. Anderson, ed: Fiction River: Pulse Pounders: Countdown
6, Peter O’Donnell and Jim Holdaway: The Gabriel Set-Up
7, buffy

This is the post where I gather all my reviews for this year.

I’m again joining the Pick&Mix reading challenge but my initial goal is only 10 books.

I’ve quite a few books for the Mount TBR challenge so I’m aiming to read less from the library. However, any new audiobooks or ebooks will go to this challenge, too.

Books read:
1, Jack Vance: The Dirdir
2, P. Djèlí Clark: The Haunting of Tram Car 015
3, Jack Vance: The Pnume

January is the Vintage SciFi Month, hosted by the Little Red Reviewer.

I’m going to continue Jack Vance’s Planet of Adventure series with “the Dirdir” and “the Pnume”. I have the whole series as audiobooks.

Reviews:
1, Jack Vance: The Dirdir
2, Jack Vance: The Pnume

I enjoyed the Mount TBR challenge last year even though I didn’t quite reach my goal of 24 books. But I still have lots and lots of unread books so I’m going to
join Mount TBR 2020 with the same goal of 24 books.

Like last year, I’m adding my Fiction River e-books and StoryBundle e-books into the TBR pool in addition to the physical copies but not audiobooks even though I have still unlistened audiobooks from last year.

Books read:
1, Cameron Dokey: Here be Monsters
2, Alison Morton: Insurrectio
3, Martin H. Greenberg, ed.: The Further Adventures of Batman
4, Mel Odom: Unnatural Selection
5, Kevin J. Anderson, ed: Fiction River: Pulse Pounders: Countdown
