New Release Challenge 2017 - (un)Conventional Bookviews
Hosted by Lexxie and Stormi.

The 2017 New Release Challenge is a year-long challenge in which we aim to read books released in 2017. There will be monthly update posts, and each quarter – the end of March, end of June, end of September and in December, there will be a giveaway with the update as well.  YOU CAN SIGN-UP HERE.

The rules for the 2017 New Release Challenge are simple:
  • Books have to be released and reviewed in 2017.
  • Other challenges can be used as well, if you are participating in the Netgalley / Edelweiss challenge or in the COYER challenge, books can count towards more than one challenge, as long as the ones you use for the 2017 New Release Reading Challenge qualify to the other rules.
  • The minimum length for a book to qualify is 100 pages, it can be in any format though, physical, e-book, ARC or audiobook.
  • The New Book Release Challenge is open from January 1st through December 31st 2017, and sign-ups are open until February 15th 2017.
  • You don’t have to be a blogger to participate, you can link to your review on Goodreads or Booklikes instead – so don’t be shy! 
There are five levels in the New Release Challenge:
  • 1-30 books per year – New Release Newbie
  • 31-60 books per year – New Release Pro
  • 61-100 books per year – New Release Veteran
  • 101-200 books per year – New Release Enthusiast
  • 200+ books per year – New Release Obsessed
  • 61-100 books per year – New Release Veteran
For my reading challenges, I always like to create a preliminary list of books that I want to complete. I usually like to look back at the end of the year and see how accurate my predictions were.
