2023 Challenges

2023 Library Love Challenge! @BooksofMyHeart @angels_gp #2023LibraryLoveChallenge

Hosted by Angel’s Guilty Pleasures & Books of My Heart, this is a favorite challenge. I love libraries and so many of the books I read are sourced by them. This will be my fifth year participating in the challenge and I’m signing up for Library Card on Fire (60+ books) since I came close to that in 2022.


  • Runs from January 1, 2023 – December 31, 2023.
  • You can join anytime.
  • The sign-up will remain open until Dec. 31, 2023.
  • The goal is to find your love of your local library and to read at least twelve (12) books from the library, but you can read more.  While twelve is the minimum; there is no maximum limit.  See the different levels below and pick the one that works best for you.
  • Any format will work for this challenge (prints, ebooks, or audios); as long as you checked it out from the library, it counts.
  • A quarterly Email is being offered, dedicated to the library love challenge, focusing on the quarterly posts. Everyone who signs up will get a confirmation email. You can unsubscribe at any time, including after the signing-up.
  • You do not have to be a book blogger to participate; you can track your progress on Goodreads, Facebook, LibraryThing, etc.
  • If you’re a blogger grab the button and do a quick post about the challenge to help spread the word.  If you’re not a blogger you can help by posting on Facebook or Tweet about the challenge.  Please link back to both hosts: Angel’s Guilty Pleasures & Books of My Heart.
  • Books can be any genre (fiction, nonfiction, romance, fantasy, mystery, thriller, horror, etc.).
  • Crossovers from other reading challenges are allowed, including re-reads.
  • As an added bonus, we’re offering up a GIVEAWAY with this Challenge. Winner will be picked at the end of the year!! There are a few freebie entries just for signing up to join the challenge and then the main entries throughout the year will be the direct links to your book reviews. You will have until Jan. 4th, 2024 to enter your reviews in the Linky/Rafflecopter.
  • Write a review to enter the giveaway – 2 sentences or an essay, whatever works for you, but there is a minimum of 2 sentences.  Not sure what to write?  How about something like, “The plot was a delight, but the characters didn’t capture me.” “I enjoyed the story and really liked the characters.”
  • Please use #LibraryLoveChallenge when sharing your reviews, library pictures, etc.
