Reading challenges can be a fun way to try different books and keep your reading lists interesting. Whether you are completing a book journal or just want to try something new, there is usually something for you!
These were some of the most recent book challenges that I completed.
- Rainbow Book Challenge
- Fairytale Retelling Challenges
- ABC Challenge
- Barnes & Noble Bingo Challenge 2022
Rainbow Book Challenge
The Rainbow Book Challenge lets you look for colorful covers. Your goal in this challenge is to read every color cover.

There are two ways that you can complete the ABC Challenge.
Option 1: By the title of the book.
Personally, I will exclude the words (The, A, An) from the title to make it more manageable, but you can leave them in for an extra challenge.
Option 2: By the Author’s first or last name.
