Guilty readings - a challenge of my own

As you know, I really got into reading challenges. The fact that I have a written goal in my blog helped me read more of my TBR, to try some new genres, to give a second chance to some authors. The whole past year I searched for a challenge that will help me with certain books but couldn't find. I checked a lot of the new challenges for 2013, and especially the "out of my comfort zone" type and found some very cute, but still not what I needed. Most of them focused on exploring new genres or choosing books on a random manner. So in the end, I decided to start one on my own and challenge myself. You are welcome to join, of course, I'll be very happy to have you!  r you can only drop by and say things like "Good luck" and $Go girl!" XD But anyway, welcome to my


There is a number of books I feel guilty about. Some of them are presents I recieved years ago, that aren't really my type - and I'm freaking out everytime I see the person who gave them to me, waiting for the "Did you like it?" I feel guilty of having prejudice about books and authors I've never tried. And all those classics I've never checked - aww the lingering guilt of being a bad reader!Books I've started but never finished. And that time I spent so much on that hardcover beauty, but still haven't opened it?

Ok, you get the picture.

So I challenge myself with the following rules:
  • to become more guilt free from January 1st to December 31st 2013. If you decide to, you can join anytime
  • to write a review to see was I really right or wrong about postponing the book. If you decide to join -feel free not to write reviews if you don't feel like it! Not obligatory! But if you do, you're more than welcome to share.
  • all kinds of books count (physical copies, e book, audio, short stories, poetry, graphic novels...)
  • it doesn't matter when you bought/received the book. But I will try to focus on titles that spent more time on my TBR pile
  • crossovers are more than welcome
  • no need to make a list - only if you want to
  • you don't need a blog to participate - you can link to elsewhere (Shelfari, goodreads, etc) or simply talk about your books in a comment. Or you can make a guest post :) If you have a blog, you can sign up in the Linky (scroll down under the translation)
Here are the levels:
Reluctant hero - read 1-3 books you for some reason feel guilty about
Eager for challenge - read  4-6 books you for some reason feel guilty about
Brave heart  - read 7-10 books for some reason feel guilty about

It's on you to decide what book guilt is! This is my first challenge, so I might be missing something.

I don't know if anyone else would join me, but knowing that I have posted this in a blog might just help me!

От миналата година съм изключително зарибена по предизвикателствата - това вече го повтарях толкова пъти, че ако някой евентуално чете, сигурно му е омръзнало :))) Но докато обикалях, за повече от година така и не намерих книжно предизвикателство, което да ми помогне да отметна някои книги от списъка.

И най -накрая реших сама да се предизвикам. Ако някой реши да се включи - е изключително добре дошъл! Или може само да се отбиете да ми пожелаете късмет :))

"Виновното предизвикателство" е за всички онези книги, към които изпитвам вина, че още не съм ги прочела. Подаръци, получени преди години, които не са точно любимите ми жанрове и до които така и не стигам - и с ужас очаквам при всяка среща с човека, който ми ги е дал, да последва въпроса "А книгата хареса ли ти?". Заглавия и автори, които съм анатемосала, без да ги прочета даже. Класики, до които така и не стигам.... Схванахте картинката XD

Ако решите да се включите, ето правилата , по които ще си играя:
  • предизвикателството е от 1 януари до 31 декември.
  • аз ще се опитам да напиша нещичко за всяка от книгите, които прочета, за да видя дали съм грешала в мнението си за тях. Но това изобщо не е задължително.
  • всякакви книги се броят - като формати (книжен, електронен, аудио) без значение дали е проза, поезия, графична новела...
  • няма нужда от предварителен списък
  • ако нямате блог, може да пуснете линкове към друг сайт (Шелфари, Гудрийдс и т.н.) или просто да обсъдите книгата в коментар. Или да ми бъдете гост на блога и да публикувате тук :)
Измислих си три нива, които ще опитам да преодолея:
герой по принуда - 1-3 книги
Готов за предизвикателство - 4-6 книги
Смело сърце - 7-10 книги

Вие сами определяте как бихте разтълкували "вината си" :) Ако решите да се включите, ще се радвам

  1. Well it looks like you have everything. Hrm, what is on my guilty list. People either know my taste or give me a gift card so I don't have anything there. I guess my pile in my night stand of books I bought at the clearance center would be a good start. I bought them years ago and have only read a few.

  4. Hi! I'll join your event after I compose a post.

    We were in the ghost ‘challenge’ together too. There’s nothing like it in 2013 (except one with a vampire category; not for me). I found a flexible paranormal one that needs a lot more people! The banner on my page has the link. ~Carolyn~
