Announcing the Sweater Weather Fall Reading Challenge 2018!

Here's a new one. This sounds fun and is very different. It runs from September 1 to November 22 (Thanksgiving Day).

I love seasonal challenges. During the summer I hosted my Fun In the Sun Reading Challenge. For fall I've decided to create the Sweater Weather Reading Challenge. There's nothing I love more than to put on my boots, my favorite sweater, grab a mug of hot cocoa, and read a book. I particularly love to read books about being at school and fall themed cozy mysteries this time of year.

Please note Halloween and horror books will not be included in this challenge. I will be creating a Halloween themed challenge that will be separate from this challenge. However, I do understand that many fall books overlap with the Halloween theme, especially cozy mysteries. These books may be counted for this reading challenge as long as they are not of the horror genre.

Also, I decided to end the seasonal challenge on Thanksgiving rather than the end of November. I will be hosting a Christmas reading challenge that will begin on Nov 23. Look for info for that later this year.

 The Rules:
  •  This season challenge begins Sept 1, 2018 and ends on Thanksgiving Nov 22, 2018. 
  •  You may sign up anytime during the challenge. 
  •  I won't be creating different levels.
  • Read as little or as many books as you want. Even if you just read one book I want you to participate!
  • You may include books of any format including traditional books, ebooks, or audiobooks.
  • Books may be any genre except for horror. I will be creating a Halloween reading challenge for horror books. 
  • Books that may counted can have fall/autumn themed titles, the word fall in the title, the months of fall in the title, the word harvest in the title, be about school themes (fall is time to go back to school), have leaves, fall colored trees, apples, or pumpkins on the cover. Again, it's fine if these books mention Halloween or have things like a jack o' lantern on the cover. They can be counted as long as they are not the horror genre.
  • If you want to see book suggestions please visit my Pinterest board of Fall/Autumn books. Books do not have to be read from these lists. I will be creating a 2018 new release list as well. Check back here for that link.
  •  You may reread books. Books may count towards other reading challenges. 
  •  Use the hashtag #SweaterWeatherFallRC
  •  If you could be so kind, please place the Sweater Weather Fall Reading Challenge banner on your blog to help spread the word. 
  •  Please link back to this blog, post about it on Facebook, Tweet about it, and so on to help spread the word.
Here is what I am reading:

  1. Have fun.
    I don't think my reading is seasonal. Or perhaps it is, when we are sweltering I like to read cool climate books...
