The 30 Day Book Challenge

30 Day Book Challenge Banner

The aim of the 30 Day Book Challenge is to to try and post everyday for 30 days. On each of these days you answer one of the book related questions below.
And that’s it! It’s really that simple!
Why not try it for yourself? 🙂

*NOTE: Please do not reuse the banner, it is my own work.

My thoughts pre starting the challenge and what I wanted to get out of it can be found here.

DAY 1. – A book series you wish had gone on longer OR a book series you wish would
just end already.
DAY 2. – Favorite side character.

    • Thanks, I thought it was a cool idea too, I think the challenge might have originated on tumblr somewhere but I just decided to pick and choose from existing questions around the internet. 🙂

      Enjoy the challenge!

    • Hi, I’m glad you like it. 🙂 I didn’t actually make this originally myself but I have basically combined a lot of versions of this game into my own ideal questions. That’s great, go for it! Your not a late comer at all, I haven’t even started this challenge yet because I got delayed by a little thing called uni. 😛 I’m hoping to do it in the summer though.

      Have fun, I look forward to seeing how your posts come out! 🙂

    • Hello! Glad you like the look of it, I hope you enjoy having a go. 😀

      Day 22 Is basically a plot device (something that happens that helps move a plot along) that you think is overused and ruins a book for you. So for instance you may not like unnecessary character deaths, or the yoda type character you often find that always has all the right answers to help the protaginist, maybe love trianges found a lot in YA. Hope that helps!

  3. I did one of these a couple of years ago, I went through a bunch of blogs that had lists such as these and kind of came up with my own list of questions. I think it would be interesting to do another one sometime soon, maybe I’ll aim for the 2 year anniversary of when I did my last one.

    Either way, I’ll stop by from time to time with some random comments about your list. It’s always fun to see what kind of books people enjoy, and as always I’m on the lookout for new books to read as well.

    • Yepp I did something pretty similar, only instead of coming up with my own questions I just picked my favourites from all the various lists floating around that I thought I would want to answer. Oooh, that would be cool. 🙂 I like that these questions can lead you in some unexpected directions.

      That would be great, thank you! I always love to hear what people have to say so your comments are most welcome. 🙂 Maybe you can point me in the direction of some good book as well.

    • Thanks bookboodle, I know what you mean, it is so hard to find the time! That’s the reason I had this tab with the challenge up for so long before acting on it. It’s very time consuming.
      Sure thing, that would be great. 😀 Go for it.

  5. This sounds great! Would it be ok if I borrowed the questions and did this challenge too? I’m coming to this very late I know, but the idea would be good for inspiring me to write more on my own blog again!

    • Glad you think so! That would be great, if you could link back to my blog to say where you first found the challenge on your first post that would be great. 🙂

      Not late at all! It’s one of those challenges where it doesn’t matter when you start, you could begin now or in five years. Have fun and I hope you enjoying taking part. 🙂

  30. I’m vaguely new to book blogging but I’d love to do this challenge! Possibly quite a dumb question but how can I link/credit to you when I start it? I would never take it without doing so just I’m new here haha.

    • Hello! You can absolutely give this challenge a go, I hope you find it fun. 🙂 You can link me simply by mentioning in your first post about it that you ‘found this challenge on Blogs of a Bookaholic) and then link my blog to the post using an html link.

      Congrats on entering the book blogging world, I hope you enjoy it here, we’re a friendly, enthusiastic bunch! If you have any other questions just let me know. 🙂
