2016 Reading Challenges


This year I’ve gone a bit crazy with the challenges. For the past couple of years I’ve not done too many, but now I’ve signed up for a bunch of them. Just because. So I thought I would share them with you. Which challenges are you taking part in?


A Series A Month

I love binge-reading series but I rarely get the chance to do so. The last time I properly did it was for Vampire Academy back in 2011. I thought this challenge would give me some motivation, although it’s difficult to know which ones I’ll be reading because I don’t know if I’m going to enjoy the first book.


Gallagher Girls
The Powder Mage
Throne of Glass (reread)
Women of the Otherworld
Ruby Red
These Broken Stars
