2016 Challenges

I'm co-hosting this challenge with the ladies @Chapter Break and Terri @Second Run Reviews

My goal for 2016 is 51+ Books or My Shelves and I Are Going Steady. To help me in achieving this goal, I'm challenging myself to read 8 books I own before reading a new release.

How'd I Do?
I ended up reading 70 books off my shelves. I'm more than Going Steady with my shelves...I'm fully committed. :)

How'd I Do?
I did okay with my goals. Some I could have done better - most I could have done *much* better. But I've tweaked my goals for 2017 and I think I'll be more successful because of it.


The Reading Assignment Challenge is hosted by Berls @Fantasy is More Fun and Michelle @Because Reading.

For 2016, I'm aiming for Level 2 or 2 books per month. Here is my Reading Assignment list of books:

Outlander (Outlander, #1)A Game of Thrones (A Song of Ice and Fire, #1)Me Before You (Me Before You, #1)The Siren (The Original Sinners, #1)The TakerRedemption (Penton Legacy, #1)A Different BluePure AbandonThe Bronze Horseman (The Bronze Horseman, #1)Off Sides (Off, #1)Legal Ease (Sutton Capital, #1)Surrender Your Love (Surrender Your Love, #1)The Scorpio RacesAbandon (Abandon, #1)Everneath (Everneath, #1)Unleashing Mr. DarcyThe Stars Never Rise (The Stars Never Rise, #1)Storm (Elemental, #1)Get Even (Don't Get Mad, #1)Wither (The Chemical Garden, #1)Top Ten Clues You're CluelessThe Maze Runner (Maze Runner, #1)Rule (Marked Men, #1)Pent Up

How'd I Do?
I only read 8 books from my reading list. :( This is the second year in a row I've failed at this challenge. So I'm knocking my goal down to 12 for next year. Fingers crossed it'll make the difference.

New Release Challenge 2016 - (un)Conventional Bookviews

Lexxie @Unconventional Book Views and Stormi @Books, Movies, Reviews! Oh My! are co-hosting this challenge once again in 2016.

Since I'm aiming to show my shelves some love in 2016 and read books I already own, I'm only aiming for the New Release Pro status or 16-30 books. We shall see how I do! ;)

How'd I Do?
I knocked this one out of the ballpark! Of course, that meant I read way more new releases than I'd intended to which also means it took time away from reading books I already owned. But still. 57 books is an accomplishment!

Herding Cats & Burning Soup and Addicted to Happily Ever After are hosting this challenge meant to 'shame' me into reading all those many, many ARCs I've collected but haven't read. ;)

I'm aiming for getting 20 Review Books read and reviewed. I'm setting this goal without looking to see how many of these *forgotten* books I have...but it seems like a good goal to start with. :D

How'd I Do?
I only read 11 books for this challenge and while I didn't hit my goal, that's 11 books needing my attention and review that are no longer waiting.
