October Reading Challenges

This month I’m only tackling two additional reading challenges on top of my three annual reading challenges.

Slapshot Readathon

The first one is the Slapshot Readathon (aka Ice Hockey readathon!) hosted by @puckspaperbacks and @beccawithabook runs from the 2-8 October 2019.

To read my full post on the books I’ll be reading for this challenge and the prompts visit my October Reading Challenge: Slapshot Readathon & TBR announcement.


I absolutely adore Ice Hockey and try to make it to as many of the local AIHL games I can. I have a few books lined up that fit this challenge and I am so looking forward to diving into them! I only wish this challenge was running for the duration of the month. I can’t possibly fit every single hockey book I want to read in that time span!


#LoveOzYA Bingo Card

The second and final reading challenge I’m taking on this month is the #LoveOzYA’s bingo card (pictured below). Bingo is taking place all month long (1st -31st October)

Playing is simple – just like a normal game of bingo, you’re looking to get five squares in a row: horizontally, vertically, or diagonally. You can mark a square off whenever you read a book that matches the criteria in the square, so long as it’s considered an OzYA book. There’s a “free” space in the middle of the board to make it a little easier if you can’t find five books you’d like to read.


Currently, some of the books I have  shortlisted for my TBR that qualify for this bingo card are:


Clearly I won’t be getting through ALL of those listed above, hell I’ll be likely to get through 4 books at this rate… I’m being super optimistic at this stage and have plans to carry through this bingo card until the end of the year as it is anyway 🙂


Like last month, I’ll be aiming to do a mid-month update on the challenges, and then a wrap up at the end of the month as well.

Are you taking part in any reading challenges this month? If so, which ones? I’d love to hear from you.
