NetGalley and Edelweiss Reading Challenge 2020 // Here & Queerathon Challenge 2020 “Sign-Up”

Hello friends!

So, I already signed up for #StartOnYourShelfathon challenge earlier this month and today I’m signing up for two more!

First, NetGalley and Edelweiss Reading Challenge 2020 hosted by Tina @ Reading Between the Pages and second, The Here & Queerathon 2020 hosted by Mel @ Cotton Candy Book Witch.


What the challenge is all about…

Are you feeling overwhelmed by the number of NetGalley/Edelweiss books sitting on your shelf to be read?
Have you lost your 80% rating and would love to get it back?
Do you want to challenge yourself to read more NetGalley/Edelweiss books?
Do you need extra inspiration to achieve that next badge?

If the answer is “YES” to any of these questions then this is the challenge for you!

Challenge guidelines… 

  • The challenge runs from January 1, 2020 – December 31, 2020. There is no deadline to sign up.
  • Everyone is welcome to participate – you do not need to have a blog.
  • Any genre, release date, length, etc. counts – it just needs to be a book from NetGalley or Edelweiss.
  • Books can count for more than one challenge that you are participating in.
  • The first day of each month [Tina] will post a monthly “link-up” for you to link your reviews. If you forget one month, no worries, just catch up the next month.
  • Help spread the book love and use the hashtag: #NGEW2020

The Levels…

Bronze – 10 Books

Silver – 25 Books

Gold – 50 Books

Platinum – 75 Books

Diamond – 100 Books

*This challenge was created by Emily@Falling for YA, then moved to Katrina@Bookish Things & More (site no longer available) and now it resides here at Reading Between the Pages.


Books that count

  • books by queer authors
  • books you START and FINISH in 2020 (books started in 2019 and finished in 2020 will NOT count)
  • any backlist (2019 or before) and frontlist (2020) or ARCs by queer authors
  • audiobooks count too!

    1. I’ll already be trying hard with #StartOnYourShelfathon so I was reluctant to join other stuff but those two sound like something I’ll be reading anyway & group effort is always more motivating!! I hope I won’t disappoint! Join us!!! ❤
