Storygraph: A New Year, New Reading Challenges

Yes, I’m a day late. At this point it’s not that surprising. Since 2020, I’ve been busy, busy, busy and 2022 is no different. Luckily this time, it was because I was spending time with family. Not recovering from surgery, or job loss, or any of the other silly things that’s happened in the past few years.

And just to add to my busy life, I’ve jumped in to start a new reading challenge for 2022. I am taking some pity on myself and only making it 50 books this year (that’s still almost a book a week and I’m two weeks behind, but I digress).

I am moving from Goodreads this year to try out Storygraph.

Last year I heard so many good things about Storygraph. They have tons more analytics from moods to genres and more! I am a sucker for a great graph of information…especially when it shows how much I’ve accomplished. Since this year is sort of a lazy year with goals, it’ll be nice to see every step I’ve taken be counted. I might not reach the top of the mountain, but I’ll definitely be above sea level.

Challenges

Another reason I’m moving to Storygraph, besides the amazing stats, is because of the challenges. They have so many challenges to pick from and it’s easy to create your own. The reason I learned about Storygraph was because of the Asian reads challenge. You can create a book challenge list, and people can add books to that list that fit each category. It’s a great way to find new books, challenge yourself, and collaborate with other readers.

I plan to test this new (ish) website out this year and give you a full review by the end of December (hopefully I don’t spontaneously take time off again due to stress).

I have a feeling it’s a great alternative to Goodreads.

Let me know in the comments below if you’ve already joined the Storygraph hype train. I don’t have any friends on there yet so if you want to be friends just swing on by and find me. My username is the same as my twitch handle (lizziebelina). I look forward to reading along with you.
