Challenges

101 Fantasy Project: 1 year check in!

Exactly one year ago I signed up for The Fantasy Project – a 10 year reading challenge all about catching up on fantasy books. Based on a list of 813 fantasy books, select 101 and try to read them in a ten year period! You can also include up to 26 of personal choice that weren’t on the original list.  For more about the challenge, see here.

The challenge is ideal for me because Fantasy is my favourite genre but I so often end up reading new releases/review copies instead, and because fantasy novels tend to be longer they’re harder to just knock out in a day too!  I’ve updated my list below with current progress, one year later.

I’m doing okay so far – a total of 14 out of 101. BUT these were almost all newer releases. I’ve gone back through in the year since I signed up and swapped out a few titles that no longer appeal in favour of other titles on the original 813 list that I now own, and a few additional personal choices because I realised I hadn’t used them all up!

Start date: 1/9/2013
End Date: 1/9/2023
