Challenges Update ~ September ~ #2015HW, #ShelfLove, Mythology Reading Challenge, LGBT Reading Challenge, 2015 New Release Reading Challenge

Really?!? Another month...GONE! 2015 is three quarters over and I'm wondering where the time has gone. I'm continuing to make good progress on my challenges. And I'm still enjoying reading whatever I want, finding I've been hoarding some really GOOD books! Here's my update:



2015HWLogo


This challenge is hosted by Berls @Fantasy is More Fun and Michelle @Because Reading.


This month, I read Uprising by Dawn Jayne and Poughkeepsie by Debra Anastasia. Both reads were great...made me think and weren't exactly what I'd thought they'd be. You can click on the images to see my reviews on Goodreads. 


I'm down to THREE months for this challenge and I'm *still* putting off the monster books... I'm hoping to tackle Outlander in October. Am I going to be able to pull it off and finish my Reading Assignment??

I have finished this challenge since I challenged myself achieve God level or 6-10 books and I've read 6. (I'm actually wondering if Patricia Briggs' books would fit this challenge?)

New Release Challenge (un)Conventional Bookviews


Lexxie @Unconventional Book Views and Stormi @Books, Movies, Reviews! Oh My! are co-hosting this year-long challenge to read books being released in 2015. Originally, I challenged myself to reach New Release Newbie status - or 1-15 books. Since I met that goal, I decided to aim higher. ;) I set a new goal of New Release Pro - or 16-30 books. And I've now met that goal as well! Goodness! I really didn't think I'd read that many new releases this year. So, keeping in mind we're ~6 months into the year, I've set a new goal of New Release Enthusiast - or 45+ booksIn September, I added THREE more New Releases to my list. Woohoo! ;) That brings my total to 49 New Releases - which means I have kicked this challenge's butt! ;) 

I am officially a New Release Enthusiast!!!
