2016 Challenges

Here is where I’m going to be keeping track of my progress for the various reading challenges I signed up for for 2016.

 

My motivation behind doing these challenges is my frankly terrifying TBR.

My TBR is as follows (yes I counted):
Physical TBR:
11 non-fiction
19 Classics
1 Art Book
25 Adult Books
98 YA Books
E-Books (On My Kindle):
162 (most of which were free/on sale/or novellas)

In Total my TBR is:
316

(These numbers are as of 12/27/15 not counting 2016 books I’ve already preordered)

So, I’m doing these 6 challenges this year to try and lessen that.

The Challenges:

For all the challenges, I’ll add the books I read as I read them below the challenge they fullfill.

  1. Goodreads Challenge
    Goodreads has this thing where you can set a reading goal and track your progress throughout the year. I’ve done this the past few years and I’m doing it again.This year, my goal is 100 Books. Hopefully I can reach it.

 

2.2016 Review Writing Challenge

Hosted by Shari @ Delighted Reader

My base goal for this challenge is 30 reviews. I’d like to do more, between wanting to review as many of the books I read this year + backlogged reviews, but if I put a number higher than 30, I’ll cry from stress. So I’m putting 30 and hoping I’ll pass it.

1.The 5th Wave Review
2.Emmy & Oliver Review
3.Red Queen Review
