I had so much fun participating in reading challenges in 2015, so I decided to sign up for some again this year. Some I’ve done before, and some are new.
2016 Audiobook Challenge
The goal, obviously, to to listen to lots of audiobooks. I did this challenge last year and LOVED it. I fall more and more in love with audiobooks every year. My goal last year was the My Precious Level (30-50 audios) but I actually listened to 54! I totally kicked butt.
Since I did so well last year, I’m upping my goal, and am aiming for the Marathoner Level (50+ audios). I think I can accomplish this.
2016 Contemporary Romance Reading Challenge
This challenge focuses on reading Contemporary Romance Novels. They can be Young Adult, New Adult and Adult, but must be contemporary, obviously. As a MAJOR lover of contemporary romance, I just had to sign up for this one.
My goal is the highest level: Gram Slam (21+ novels). Last year alone I read 60+. What can I say, I love contemporary.
2016 Pick Your Genre Reading Challenge
This challenge is hosted by Herding Cats & Burning Soup.
This is super fun, because participants can choose which genre they want to focus on this year. I want to focus on HISTORICAL ROMANCE. I love historical romance so much, but I don’t read as much as I should. So hopefully I will be able to focus on this a bit in 2016.
Last year I read 32 historical romance novels, but a lot of them were re-reads. My goal for 2016 is Level 3: Wading In (25 books). That’s not a ton, but with the Contemporary Romance Challenge, I don’t want to get overwhelmed. And if I read more, that’s awesome!
The Re-Read Challenge: 2016
This challenge is hosted at Belle of the Literati.
The goal is to re-read books. I participated in this challenge last year, and more than met my goal. Last year my goal was 12 books, and I re-read 14! I think I’m going to lower my goal a little bit this year since I re-read so much last year. I would like to re-read 8 books in 2016.
Goodreads Reading Challenge 2016
This is the fourth year I’m participating in the Goodreads Reading Challenge. I love that every participant can choose their own goal. Last year my goal was 150, and I read 155 books. I’m pretty consistent each year reading approximately 150 books. I’m pushing myself a bit, though, and aiming for 160 books. Hopefully I can make that goal.
Are you participating in any reading challenges this year?
I would love some suggestions for the genre-specific challenges. Let me know in the comments.
