2018 War Reading Challenge


Where on earth did 2017 go? I hope you read some fantastic WWII books last year. There’s still time to link your reviews here.

Feel free to tweet @wargenerations on Twitter when you have a review up or reach out on Facebook through our Facebook page.

This year, we’re leaving the challenge wide open. We’d love for you to link up any fiction, nonfiction, poetry, middle-grade, children’s, or graphic novels you may be reading about war. WWII, Vietnam War, WWI, Korean War, French and Indiana War, War of 1812, the American Revolution, Gulf wars, and more.

Link up your reviews in the linky below:

Let us know in the comments what your personal reading goal is for the war challenge — one book, 10 books, 50 books. It’s up to you.

Have a great 2018!


WWII Reading Challenge 2017


Happy New Year! Welcome to the WWII Reading Challenge for 2017.

This is a no-stress reading challenge. Feel free to set your own goal. Read fiction, nonfiction, poetry, children’s books, etc. Whatever strikes your fancy. These can be the years leading up to the war, during the war, or in the few years after the war.

Please link your reviews (blog, Amazon, GoodReads, wherever you post) below:

As a thank you for participating, we’ll host an end-of-challenge giveaway for those who read the most WWII-related books between Jan. 1, 2017, and Dec. 31, 2017. (Details coming later in the year!)

Update: 2016 War Reading Challenge

In the interest of timeliness; we’ve decided to let the war challenge be empty this year.

Instead, we want to invite everyone to join Becky’s Book ReviewsWorld at War Reading Challenge.

Click on the image below and find out the details.  There’s bingo and a wide variety of ways to participate.

Have fun in 2016 with this challenge, and we’ll see you again in 2017!

2016 War Reading Challenge


Thank you to all the challenge participants who worked hard last year (2015) reading books related to any war.  Everyone did a great job.

This year, we haven’t made a plan, as real life has overstepped into the blogging life.  We’re reassessing our priorities and trying to keep this challenge going for everyone.

With that in mind, we’d like to hear from you.  Would you like a theme this year or for half the year?  If you do, any suggestions?

We’ll pick one of the suggestions with the most comments in favor, of course.

If there is no clear winner, or you prefer, we could do another “any war” reading challenge, like we did in 2015.

Please let us know; this is your challenge too!

2015 War Through the Generations Challenge


You’ve probably been wondering where we have been, other than this past year’s read-a-longs. We’ve been busy. And 2015 doesn’t look like it is going to let up any time soon.

This year, read books — fiction, poetry, or nonfiction — about any war. Add your review links to Mr. Linky and designate what war it is and title of book in parentheses — i.e. War Through the Generations (Matterhorn – Vietnam)

Use this Mr. Linky Text Link to open the new page to insert your link:

Sorry if we have lost your previously inserted link. Feel free to add it again!
