2016 Reading Challenges

Hi everyone! 2016 is almost here and with it comes reading challenges for the new year! So this post is just for me to list all the challenges I’ll be participating in for 2016.

*I will be keeping track of my progress for all of these challenges on my Reading Challenges page, starting on January 1.

Goodreads Challenge
Hosted by: Goodreads
My goal: 60 books

I didn’t do so well with my Goodreads challenge this year, but I did have a baby in February so that made reading a bit more challenging. For 2015 my goal was 60 books and as of writing this post, I’m at 44. So I’m setting my 2016 goal for 60 books again, and I hope to reach that goal this year. I’d love to read 100 books each year, but I’m such a slow reader that it’s just not so doable for me, unless I read a lot of graphic novels. Which I may do, so, who knows?

My goal: Level 1 – 13,000 pages read

My friend Courtney hosted a challenge like this a couple years ago, and I’ve been counting my pages read ever since. So I’m glad to have a challenge to participate in again!

My goal: Mount Blanc level – 24 books

I’ve attempted the Mount TBR challenge for the past 3 years and I’ve picked the Mount Blanc level each time. 2013 was the only year that I actually reached my goal of 24 books, and 2015 was an especially bad year for me with this challenge. But because of the challenge below, I think I’ll be reading a LOT of books off my shelf this year, so I hope to reach my goal again.

Hosted by: Love at First Page
My goal: Read 2 full-length books in a series every month

I am super excited about this challenge! I don’t know if I’ll be able to read a series every single month in 2016, but I’m going to try! I’ve got several already picked out!

So those are the reading challenges that I’ll be participating in for 2016. I’m looking forward to a great year of reading! What reading challenges are you signing up for this year?

    Wow! You took on a lot of challenges this year! I didn't know you had a baby this year! Congrats! I'm with you on the Goodreads challenge. I didn't finish either. Good job on the other challenges though, and good luck with next years goals!

    What series do you have picked out for ASAM? I'm doing it too but I've only got a couple of ideas so far. I'm nervous because what if I pick a series but then dislike the first book?!
