This is a year-long challenge where everyone aims to read books published in 2017. It's hosted by Lexxie@(un)Conventional Book Reviewsand Stormi@Books, Movies, Reviews! Oh My!I participated last year and read 79 new releases so it's pretty much a given that I plan on participating again. Here are the rules from Lexxie's blog and I plan on striving to be a New Release Veteran this year!
Books have to be released and reviewed in 2017.
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 2017 New Release Reading 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 2017, and sign-ups are open until February 15th 2017.
You don’t have to be a blogger to participate, you can link to your review on Goodreads or Booklikes instead – so don’t be shy!
There are five levels in the New Release Challenge:
