This will be my fourth year with the Library Love Challenge. I hope that I will be more successful with this challenge in 2022 than I have been in 2021. Unlike many other readers, I haven´t been reading much during the past two years. Sometimes I am still too distracted by the virus and all the changes that come along with it. But I hope that that will change for the better and that I will be able to read and enjoy as many books as I can in 2022. And I am looking forward to finding new books I don´t want to buy but want to read anyway.

I wasn´t sure if I wanted to sign up for this challenge again. Not after a once for me a cozy place where I could spend hours searching for new books turned into a cold, sterile, and distanced place. Every time I go there, my heart is crying because of the new look and design. But I must face reality. Not every book request I place for a new release gets granted. And of course, I would love to buy all the books I want to read. Who wouldn´t? But, let´s face it. It would hurt my wallet. Yes, Germany has a fixed book price but still. My old library card was for free and so was the new one with the chip. And although I sometimes would like to give that new card back, so far, I was able to resist that feeling and keep it. And with it the hope that the new year will be a better library year for me.

The challenge is hosted by Angel´s Guilty Pleasure and Books of My Heart. Again, I am aiming for the Dewey Decimal, who reads a minimum of 12 library books and will see how things go from there.


-Runs: January 1, 2022 – December 31, 2022. You can join anytime. The sign-up will remain open until December 31st, 2022.

-The goal is to find your love of your local library and to read at least twelve (12) books from the library, but you can read more. While twelve is the minimum; there is no maximum limit. See the different levels below and pick the one that works best for you.

-Any format will work for this challenge (prints, ebooks, or audios); as long as you checked it out from the library, it counts.

-Books can be any genre (fiction, nonfiction, romance, fantasy, mystery, thriller, horror, etc.).

-Crossovers from other reading challenges are allowed, including re-reads. The goal is to support your local library and save money.

-You do not have to be a book blogger to participate; you can track your progress on Goodreads, Facebook, LibraryThing, etc.

-If you’re a blogger, grab the button and do a quick post about the challenge to help spread the word. If you’re not a blogger you can help by posting on Facebook or Tweet about the challenge. Please link back to both hosts: Angel’s Guilty Pleasures & Books of My Heart.

-As an added bonus: They´re offering up FOUR GIVEAWAYS plus a few surprise giveaways throughout the year 2022 with this Challenge. The main giveaways will be posted for (Jan., Feb., & March), (April, May, & June), (July, Aug., & Sept.), & last (Oct., Nov., & Dec.). A linky will go up on both Angel’s Guilty Pleasures and Books of My Heart; where you can leave your links for the reviews on your library books you have read. So, make sure to stop by to enter.

-(Optional) Reviews: Write a review to enter the giveaway – 2 sentences or an essay, whatever works for you, but there is a minimum of 2 sentences. Not sure what to write? How about something like, “The plot was a delight, but the characters didn’t capture me.” “I enjoyed the story and really liked the characters.”

  1. This is such a great challenge! I'm not doing any challenges this year but I might low key do it just for myself. ^_^

    1. My first intention was to do no challenge in 2022 too. But then I noticed that I would miss something and thought why not do them again *smile*
