2016 Challenges

January 6, 2016 Challenges 4

I really wanted to reduce the number of challenges this year to 3, because I did 5 reading challenges plus some extra blogging ones last year and it just proved to be too much. But then I saw a 4th challenge I just COULDN’T refuse… Tamora Pierce (but of course!) and all of these challenges are books I would read anyways so I’m thinking it will okay.

Read Tamora Pierce Challenge


Host: Nori @ ReadWriteLove28

The Goal: Read as many of Tamora Pierce’s books as you want!

MY GOAL: I kind of jumped the gun in December and reread The Protector of the Small and The Immortals quartets, but there is still plenty for me to reread and I think my goal is going to read at least 11 (because I definitely want to do all Emelan books this year!)

Books I Plan to Read:

Shelf Love Challenge


Hosts: Chapter Break, Bookworm Brandee, and Second Run Reviews

The Goal: To grow your TBR pile responsibly and read the books you already own. You have ‘em, now read ‘em!

Official hashtag: #ShelfLove

Additional Info: There’s monthly discussion posts too!

MY GOAL: I hope to read at least 10 books that I own but haven’t read yet. But I’ll also be tracking my rereads of books I own for this challenge as well, so that’ll be at least another 20. So it looks like I’m at the 21-­30 books: give your shelves a warm friendly hug level.

Books I Plan to Read: I have a goodreads shelf of all the books I own that I haven’t read yet.

Re-Read Challenge


Host: Belle of the Literati

The Goal: Reread you favorite books!

Official hashtag: #ReRead2016


Books I Plan to Read:

  • All of the books I listed for the Tamora Pierce Challenge (11-16)
  • Prudence by Gail Carriger
  • Twilight by Meg Cabot
  • Throne of Glass series by Sarah J. Maas (5)
  • Perhaps some contemporaries here and there, but those will probably be determined as the mood strikes 🙂

Flights of Fantasy Challenge


Hosts: Alexa Loves Books & Hello Chelly

The Goal: Read as much fantasy as you want!

Official hashtag: #flightsoffantasy

Additional Info: Alexa and Rachel started a Flights of Fantasy book club! They will be hosting 2 giveaways and you can gain bonus entries by reading any of there favorite fantasy books. Also they are planning on doing 2 twitter chats during the year.

MY GOAL: 30 books

    I had no idea there was a Tamora Pierce challenge. That is awesome! I am planning to reread the Emelan series this year as well as the Tortallan ones. Every few years I just binge read Pierce.
    Good luck with your challenges!

      I usually try to reread a quartet or two once a year, though sometimes I can’t help but reread more 😀 I really excited about this challenge and to discover more Tamora Pierce fans!

    Nori is always suggesting TP books to me! I might have to try one one of these days.

    Oh man! I’ve already committed to four reading challenges, but now I really want to do the Re-Read Challenge and Flights of Fantasy! I did FoF last year, but I failed… so hard! I might sign up and try again.
