12 Books of Christmas Challenge 2022

It's that time again! Time for the semi-annual 12 Books of Christmas reading challenge! I didn't have the energy or time to put it together last year, but I'm currently unemployed so I have all the time in the world to do whatever I want this year, and that means we are back for another round. Plus, I've come to realize that my last job was horribly toxic and left me traumatized, so I could really use the cheesy Christmas cheer of this challenge. 

The Rules

This is supposed to be a fun, stress-reducing challenge, so the rules will be minimal.
  1. Tell everybody about the 12 Books of Christmas challenge (#12BooksOfXmas). 
  2. Build a blog post or create a Goodreads shelf of the books you intend to read for the challenge (you can see mine here). You can absolutely read outside your list, if the desire strikes, this is just a starting point. Then come back and add your name to the linkup. (Be sure to visit the other participants to see what they plan on reading.) Bloggers, please link back to this page so that others can find the challenge as well should they wish to participate. 
  3. Reviews must be posted between November 24th and December 24th. The review linkup will open on November 24th. Be sure to bookmark this page so you can come back and add your reviews!
  4. Any winter holiday themed books count (Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, etc.) You can check out the books we read in 2017 by clicking here, 2018 by clicking here, and 2020 by clicking here
  5. There are four achievement levels for this challenge, so read as few or as many books as you want.
  6. Have fun!
Achievement Levels

Christmas could not happen without Santa's many elves, so everyone who participates will get Elf Status.

We all know about Dasher, Dancer, Prancer and the other reindeer and the important job that they do, but let's be honest, Santa probably has a couple of back-up reindeer in the stable in case Rudolph's red nose is a little runny on Christmas Eve. That being said, flying the big guy around all night takes stamina, so to achieve Reindeer Status you'll need to power through at least 5 books. 

It takes a truly committed woman to stand by a man with a job as demanding as Santa's, so to achieve Mrs. Claus Status, you'll need to commit to reading at least 9 books. 

The jolly guy in the red suit is tasked with bringing joy to all the girls and boys on Christmas day. To achieve Santa Status, you'll need to bring joy to at least 12 authors by reading and reviewing their books this holiday season. 

Be sure to post this on your blog so everyone knows your participating!
