Reading Challenge for 2015

For 2014, about half of the year through, I decided I was going to join two reading challenges. There was the Reading Bingo Challenge by Retreat by Random House and A Century of Books by Stuck in a Book, the first was somewhat manageable (or so I thought) and the second was a long-haul challenge so I thought I would be able to manage. Well, after 6 months I wasn’t able to get anything done. 🙁

But that’s okay! I am going to pick myself up and shake off the dust from this year’s reading challenge failure and move on to a challenge for 2015! (Because I can be very stubborn that way…)

I’m still going to work through the challenge of reading A Century of Books but I wanted to do one that had to be finished within a year. So I did a search of all the challenges being posted and I came across one that I think is just perfect for me as a mom of a 10 year-old reader (and two other soon-to-be-readers…I hope). When 2015 rolls around in a few days I am going to join…

2015 Newbery Reading Challenge

A Newberry Medal is awarded to authors with distinguished contributions to American Literature for Children. The Newberry Honor books, for lack of a clearer explanation, are the runners-up, but they are really good reads just the same. 🙂

Also, because No. 100 of my 101 in 1001 is to read a Newberry Medal or Honor Book for every year since it’s debut in 1922, this challenge is me hitting two birds with one stone. Oh, and I’m aiming for the L’Engle level on this one. Yes, the lowest level, but I’m being realistic for now. 😉

Any suggestions on what books to start with? 🙂
