Because Reading is better than reali life

The first Challenge I will be participating in is the 2016 Bookish Resolutions Challenge, hosted by Laura @ trips down imagination lane and Michelle @ Because Reading. The challenge runs from 1st January 2016 to 31st December 2016 and you can sign up here before 1st March 2016.

    • January - 57%
  • Read 20 physical books I already owned prior to 1st January
    • January - 2
  • Reread 5 books
    • January - 0
  • Finish 6 series
    • January - Finished/Up-to-date = 2
  • Reach my Goodreads goal this year (65 books)
    • January - 8
Blogging resolutions
  • Finish updating all blog posts to current layout
    • January - A few updated this month
  • Visit 4 blogs a week (not including memes) (by visit I mean comment on)
    • January - 9 (Need to be better)
  • Blog ahead - get to at least 6 weeks ahead
    • January - 2 weeks ahead (I think...)
Personal resolutions

The second challenge I will be participating in is the 2016 New Release Challenge hosted by Lexxie @ (Un)conventional Bookreviews and Stormi @ Books, Movies, Reviews! Oh My!. The aim of the challenge is to read as many books released in 2016 as possible. Sign up is open until 15th February 2016.

As this is my first year participating in this challenge and I'm wanting to read more books that I already own, I'm going to set my goal as New Release Pro so 16-30 books.

The third challenge I want to participate in is the 2016 Reading Assignment Challenge hosted by Berls @ Fantasy is More Fun and Michelle @ Because Reading. Sign up is open until 1st July 2016. I'm hoping this will help me reduce the number of physical books I have still to read.

As this is also my first year participating in this challenge (and I don't know how well I'll do reading from a set list), I'm aiming for level 1 so 12 books and 1 book a month. These are the books I plan to read over the year:


The fourth, and final, challenge is the 2016 TBR Pile Reading Challenge hosted by Evie @ Bookish Lifestyle. The aim is to read as many books (published in or before 2015) from your TBR as possible. Sign up is open until 31 November 2016.

I'm going to set my goal at A Friendly Hug so 11 to 20 books.

  4. I am also participating in the first two of these challenges, tehy are fun! getting my netgalley percentage up is also one of my goals, but it's been going down instead of up since the start of the year. I am hoping to get it to 70% at least. You made some nice progress on your goals already!

    1. My ratio has been going down too! I went a bit mad with my requesting the first few weeks of the year and then I got auto-approved for Sourcebooks Fire, so I'm really working hard to stop myself browsing now.
