2016 Dystopia Reading Challenge

The Dystopia Reading Challenege will be on again next year.  Tracy at Cornerfolds, who took over the challenge in midyear, will be hosting again, along with Claudia from My Soul-Called Life.  I'm going to try again, even though I didn't quite make the first level this year.  I hadn't read any books since September, but  had to call it finished since the year is winding down and I need to start wrapping up challenges.  I'm planning again to do the first level next year.  Sign up at the link above.

Welcome back to the new and improved Dystopia Reading Challenge! Last year I picked up the challenge in the middle of the year with not much of a clue what I was doing. This year I am much more prepared, I assure you! I have an amazing new co-host, Claudia from My Soul Called Life, and I am super excited to see what the new year has to offer!

You will find that a few things have changed (for the better) including:

✷ New Badges – These individual badges will be emailed personally to each participant once said participant has read and reviewed the highest number of books required for that specific level (see below). For example, in order to obtain the Recruit badge, you will need to have read and reviewed a total of 5 dystopian books. To receive the Rebel badge, you will need to have read and reviewed a total of 10 dystopian books; so on, and so on. You set your own personal goal and you decided how you want to display your badge (i.e. sidebar, reading challenge page, a blog post, etc.).

 Quarterly Giveaways – We will be hosting quarterly Giveaways! These Giveaways will be exclusive to all the Dystopia Reading Challenge participants. Further details will be provided in our Monthly Dystopia Newsletter

 Monthly Dystopia Prompts & Review Link-ups – Claudia and I truly love book blogging and bibliophiles, in general, and so we figured, what better way to share our love for all things dystopia then to participate in monthly dystopian prompts with all you lovely bookworms! That’s right! Each month we will include a dystopian prompt in our Monthly Dystopia Newsletter where you will be invited to participate! Please note that there are no obligations in this part of the challenge is ― it's completely optional. We strongly believe that reading challenges are meant to be fun and to help create a community that exchanges similar interests – like books, and in this case, repressive governments & revolutionists!

 Monthly Dystopia Newsletter – We will be emailing a monthly newsletter to every participant with exclusive content on our Giveaways, monthly dystopian prompts, upcoming dystopian book releases, book-turned-movie releases, challenge updates and so much more!
