It is kind of fun. I haven´t even wrapped-up the ongoing challenge as the year still has some weeks left and some new releases are still waiting for me to be read. But I am already signing- up for this challenge and hope that it´ll be as much fun to do as it has been the last three years. I am planning on reading books like I do every year so the next year won´t be any different when it comes to me, books and reading. The only difference might be, that I probably won´t be reading as many new releases as I have during the past years.

It´s not that I don´t want to, but I simply can´t evaluate how the upcoming year will turn out for me when it comes to reading books. No matter if I got them sent from a publisher or bought them myself. And to be honest, I am a bit picky now with the titles I intend to buy. I literally hate it when a book turns out to be a waste of my money and time after reading it. So, I rather keep it low key again and only plan on reaching the first level.

The challenge will be hosted by Lexxie & Brandee at (un)Conventional Bookworms.

There is only one thing I want to add (to avoid any misunderstandings). I handle this blog and my reviews in English, but the books I read are mostly German books, which means – for this challenge – that the German translation is published in 2019. And I will be reading some English books, too. And the ones I will use for this challenge are of course released in 2019.

As you might have already guessed, the 2019 New Release Challenge is a year-long challenge in which we aim to read books released in 2019. 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.

There is also a Facebook Group, to have a place where we can keep up with each other, cheer each other on, ask questions, and get to know each other better. It is also a place where we can help each other to find even more new releases. So, make sure to step in and have some fun along the way …

The Rules For The 2019 New Release Challenge
  • Books have to be released and reviewed in 2019.
  • 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 2019 New Release 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, 2019 and sign-ups are open until September 1st, 2019.
