I’m only joining four (4) reading challenges this year: The Goodreads Reading Challenge, PopSugar Reading Challenge, Clash of Classic 2019 and this one.
Bliss and Bleed is not for the faint of heart. This challenge are for readers who enjoy reading while bleeding. Hahaha. Wish I’m exaggerating but no. Through this challenge I want to read books with gore, graphic and of course bloody scenes. Horror, suspense and mystery usually have these stuffs but any genre that has CONTENT WARNINGS with them are in. In short, books that are not easy to read but I know I’d enjoy if I can just read them.
I decided to read all Stephen King Books.
Horror, suspense, mystery and I am pretty sure there are content warnings on his books. They’re perfect for this challenge. I also find it a little weird that I haven’t read much of his books. Like he’s literally a king in the writing industry and I know I can learn from him as a writer.
How did I come up with this challenge?
2017, my depression kicked in making it my worst year ever. My reading and writing took a hit. I couldn’t function and almost everything is a trigger for me. But last year, I put one of my foot down and said ENOUGH. 2018 was like my healing year. Little by little I pushed myself to write and read more. I SUCCEEDED. This year, I want to push it further.
I’ll read everything that I couldn’t read last year. I thought of having some prompts and all that but since I’m the only one doing this, prompts are unnecessary. But if you guys want to join me just hop in.
So far, I only own 7 of his books but I’m planning to read at least 20 so I’ll just update this list as I go.
Wish me luck guys. This is a real challenge for me. 🙂 🙂 🙂
