2022 New Release Challenge at (un)Conventional Bookworms

Posted December 31, 2021 by Marsha in 2022 New Release Challenge, Discussion / 0 Comments

I’m so glad that Linda and Brandee of (un)Conventional Bookworms fame are doing the 2022 New Release Challenge again.  With the way 2021 turned out I’ve been on pins and needles waiting to see if my favorite Challenges return for the new year — most have and some fun new ones cropped up so that’s a win for us readers!

I’m going for the New Release Veteran level once again at 61-100 books read/reviewed again this year.  I officially made it to 65 books in 2021, but through my own mistake didn’t make that 100 since I forgot to link an entire quarter *hangs head blushing*!  I’ve always said that remembering to go link up on any Challenge has always been my downfall… but I’m getting better so here’s hoping that 2022 is the year that I remember throughout the year.

The 2022 New Release Challenge is simply a fun way to keep track of the new (2022) releases that we’ve read.  You can easily join up as well just by clicking on the word link above or using the graphic over on the side. <—-  It’s fun, and frankly, I always find interesting new releases that I didn’t know about by clicking on other participants’ links as well!  By the end of the day, I will have made a GoodReads shelf for the Challenge as well as the list I do on my Reading Challenges page to keep track so I can go link up everything at one time, here at Happily Ever After Romance.

Good luck & have fun!
