2016 Reading Challenges

Hello Book Lovers!

                I want to try and do something in 2016 that I have not done in the past: take part in some reading challenges!  Now I have been doing the Goodreads challenge each year but I wanted to do something more.  I found a couple that really interest me and I’d love to take part in them.  Mostly because the sound like fun but I also think they will help keep me motivated to keep reading and charging through when I have some slow reading times.  Here are the challenges I want to participate in:

2016 Goodreads Challenge: COMPLETE!

2016 Reading Challenge

2016 Reading Challenge
Eve has read 0 books toward her goal of 100 books.

                I have found out about this nifty little challenge hosted by The Artsy Reader Girl where you basically challenge yourself to read debut authors through the year.  I have been meaning to do better at this myself so this challenge sounds like a great opportunity.  For full details on the challenge you can go to the main page here.

               I have created my first Goodreads shelf for this (I don’t shelf in anything but Currently Reading, Read, and TBR) and my goal is to read 12 debut author books in 2016.  I hope to read more than that of course but that leaves me at one per month which with all the other books on my list sounds like a good starting point.  Once I read a book for the challenge it will be counted not when read but once I’ve shared my thoughts so look forward to those reviews as well.  I already have a few picked out but find more and more each time I look so I think I’ll play it by ear and go from there.

2016 Rock My TBR: 35 Books down!

                This one is hosted by Sarah at The YA Book Traveler.  For full details you can go here.  Now this is pretty easy peasy to understand.  All those books you have on your shelf you bought but haven’t read yet?  Work on those!  The goal is to read at least one per month if not more.  As I have more than I want to name I am more than happy to participate in this one!  My goal for 2016 is to put a huge dent in my already owned book pile so this is perfect.

                Normally you could post some titles you are wanting to read and get some buddy reads going, but since my list is literally over 200 books I'm not going to post that.  However if anyone is interested in a buddy read comment below or message me on social media/e-mail and let me know I'm sure we can find something I have that we can read ;)


2016 Series Enders Reading Challenge: 3 Short

                This one I found at Somewhere Only We Know… and all the rules and sign up can be found here.  The goal is to clear out those series you have that you need to finish off but for some reason or another haven’t gotten there yet.  This is the challenge to finish off some of those series! I'm aiming for Level: 4

                Monthly wrap-ups are going to be posted on the 25th of every month.  I’ll also update this page with the progress as well.  Any monthly updates will not interfere with my normal posting schedule, they will be added to the normal/original post or posted as a separate post that day.  If they fall on a day I don’t normally post then hey an extra post to enjoy!
