30 Day Book Challenge

30 Day Book Challenge | bluchickenninja.com

It’s November 1st tomorrow which means NaBloPoMo time (and NaNoWriMo!). I don’t normally like monthly blogging challenges. I always feel like I lose my creativity when I’m forcing myself to write everyday and the quality of my posts go down as a result.

But I really wanted to try NaBloPoMo this year especially since I tried it last year and gave up after 3 days. So I’ve decided to try the 30 day blogging challenge from beckysblog as this way I know exactly what I am going to write about every day. I wonder if I will managed to finish it this time.

DAY 1. Book series you wish had gone on longer.
DAY 2. Favourite side character.
DAY 3. The longest book you’ve read.
DAY 4. Book turned into a movie and completely desecrated.
DAY 5. Your “comfort” book.
DAY 6. Book you’ve read the most number of times.
DAY 7. A guilty pleasure book.
DAY 8. Most underrated book.
DAY 9. Most overrated book.
DAY 10. A book you thought you wouldn’t like but ended up loving.
DAY 11. Favourite classic book.
DAY 12. A book you wanted to read for a long time but still haven’t.
DAY 13. A book that disappointed you.
DAY 14. Book that made you cry.
DAY 15. A character who you can relate to the most.
DAY 16. Most thought provoking book.
DAY 17. Author I wish people would read more.
DAY 18. A book you wish you could live in.
DAY 19. A favourite author.
DAY 20. Favourite childhood book.
DAY 21. Book you tell people you’ve read but haven’t.
DAY 22. Least favourite plot device.
DAY 23. Best book you’ve read in the last 12 months.
DAY 24. Book you’re most embarrassed to say you liked.
DAY 25. The most surprising plot twist or ending.
DAY 26. Book that makes you laugh out loud.
DAY 27. Book that has been on your “to read” list the longest.
DAY 28. Favourite quote from a book.
DAY 29. A book you hated.
DAY 30. Book you couldn’t put down.

Thanks for reading.

    Best of luck with the blog challenges! I try NaNoWriMo most years & will again this year, but maybe I’ll try a blogging challenge in an off month – just to be perverse

    I feel the same way — I lose my creativity when I’m pressured to write. I’ll get it done, but it won’t be recognizable as mine, and more than likely it will be stiff, stilted, everything I’ll wish it wasn’t. I mean, what a waste of valuable writing time, sitting there looking at something I can’t even use. Don’t get me wrong — the challenges work for a lot of writers and they should capitalize on it. It just works the opposite for me, that’s all.

    Blu, this is a tougher than I expected! I feel as if it’s more derived towards those who are huge on fiction reads… I read non-fiction, true crime, law, and anything controversial. I feel a bit excluded haha but I plan on still trying to give it my all.

      Yeah it is pretty difficult. Some days are easy to write about others not so much. I’ve just been taking the questions as inspiration to write about a specific book. I have written about a couple of non-fiction books but it is definitely for people who read mostly fiction.

        Really? That’s good to know! I thought it was just me who felt that way about this challenge. On the other hand, I’m glad we have stuck with it though. Let’s keep it going!

    This is my first NaBloPoMo and I’m not sure how I’ll go but thanks for reading my post! I hope my posts will still be interesting daily!!

    This seems like a fun challenge, maybe i will still your ideia. Muahahhaa

    Gonna check out your choices!

    Man, this is been a strange two days of unusual coincidences! Thanks for introducing yourself via a like on one of my posts! Yesterday I finished a book and was thinking I need a recommendation for another. Maybe I could ask the blogosphere…but then here you are, answering my quest before I even started. I looked at your bookshelf and found one that I had forgotten I wanted to read. Thanks for jogging my memory! And good luck on your 30 day challenge! I’m already 6 days behind on my NaNoWriMo journey. That means I need to come up with an idea and write 12000 words by tonight. Oh well… BTW, you’ve got such character! Pleased to meet you…

      I’m being really nosy but do you mind me asking which book you are going to read next. Good luck with nanowrimo. Blogging every day is nothing compared to writing a novel in a month.

        About nanowrimo – I’m now about 10 days behind. Maybe next year… 😦 Meanwhile, I’ll read Jonas Jonasson’s The Girl Who Saved the King of Sweden. Honestly, I saw it in a shop, liked the cover and the sort of whimsical title, marked it to read, then forgot all about it! I’ve requested that my local library get a copy.

        • bluchickenninja

          Don’t give up on Nano just yet. You still have 2 weeks left in the month. And it doesn’t matter if you’re just under 50,000. I believe you can do it!

          I haven’t started on The Girl Who Saved the King of Sweden yet. But I really enjoyed his other book The Hundred-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out of the Window and Disappeared.

    Just a note to say that this challenge was originally from Becky’s blog, but that was over 1 year ago. I resurrected it on my blog forestwoodfolkart.wordpress.com for November 2014.
    Have fun.
