The Five Year Plan – Fantasy Challenge #1

img_1359

Hello guys!

In a previous post I talked about the Hungarian bookish web site, and about the challenges I’ve completed or started to participate in. Now I want to talk about one challenge, as I mentioned in the most that this is the challenge I’m most excited about.

The task is simple: you have to read 100,000 pages of fantasy in 5 years. You can start the challenge from 2016. January 1st so for you it ends in 2021. January 1st. But you can push your starting date around up until 2017. December 31st because the official challenge has to be completed until 2022. December 31st. You can include any kind of books as long as they are fantasy books, so be it manga volumes, comic books, short stories, etc. Only half of your readings (amount of books) can be before 2017. July 22nd. You have to at least give every book star ratings and write longer reviews for 25 books.

My starting date is 2016. January 14th so for me the closing date is 2021. January 14th. Between 2016. January 14th and December 31st I read 29 fantasy books, 12,164 pages in total.

  1. I love this idea! It’s a bit too extensive for me, as I love to read a bunch of different genres throughout the year, but it’s a really neat idea 😊 It looks like you’ve made good progress so far. I wish you luck on the rest of it!

    1. Thank you! It’s true that if you want to complete it you have to read rather fantasy than anything else but it’s still fun! And fantasy is my favourite genre so it makes me even happier to do this challenge. Thank you! I hope I can complete it, but even if I don’t at least I had a lots of fun reading fantasy books! 🙂
