Here's my final 2015 update:
This challenge is hosted by Berls @Fantasy is More Fun and Michelle @Because Reading.
*FAILED* I didn't get any more of the books on my Reading Assignment list read but I really enjoyed this challenge so much and I'm excited because Berls and Michelle are doing it again next year! Woohoo!
This challenge is hosted by Chapter Break and Second Run Reviews.
I didn't read as much in December since I was working. Even though I continued to work on series catch-up this month, I only managed to read 4 books that I already owned. But this brings my total to 85 books total for the year! Not bad! You can click here to check out the books and their reviews on Goodreads or click on the book images below.
This challenge is hosted by Niji Feels. My goal is to reach Genre Hopper status, 3-10 LGBT books in any genre.
I've reached my goal of reading 3-10 books LGBT books in any genre. Yay! I did read 1 more book towards this challenge, bringing my total to 8 AND I finished Ella Frank's Temptation series. :D
This challenge is being hosted by Lili Lost in a Book.
I have finished this challenge since I challenged myself achieve God level or 6-10 books and I added another book to this list in October. So I've read 7 total. (I'm actually wondering if Patricia Briggs' books would fit this challenge?) Here are the books I read:
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+ books. In December, I added FIVE more New Releases to my list. Woohoo! ;) That brings my total to 57 New Releases - which means I have kicked this challenge's butt! ;)
I am officially a New Release Enthusiast!!!
Guess what?!? I joined a few more challenges! Yep. In October. Anna @Herding Cats & Burning Soup is hosting these challenges and she made it sooo easy to join, I couldn't resist. The rules are easy-peasy and any books I've read earlier this year were retroactive, so... See, it was too easy *not* to join. For full details on any of these challenges, just click the banner.
This challenge is so easy since any historical romances over 80 pages counts, anything set prior to 1920 counts, fusion reads count,
and cross-overs from other challenges count. Since I'd already read quite a few HRs, I'm aiming for Level 3 which is 3-24 books. I ended up reading or listening to 12.
Again, this challenge was so easy to join considering any erotic romance over 80 pages counts, fusion reads count, and cross-overs from other challenges count. Since I'd already read a few erotic romances, I shot for Level 2 which is 2-12 books. I made it to 10 and that's where I end the year. :)
So super easy to join...Any "new to you" book,
meaning a debut author, a brand new author to you, an old favorite's new book, a new series, or a new to you genre. I've read so many new-to-me authors this year...so my goal is Level 5 which is 5-100 books. I'm ending the year having read 56 books that count towards this challenge. ;D
How did y'all end up doing with your challenges?
