2018 is here and let me tell you, 2017 was no joke when it came to reading! Below I’ve linked the challenges that I participated in in 2017 and whether or not I am participating in 2018.
Challenge: Read as many fantasy books as possible in 2017. There is also a FOF book club book picked quarterly
Goal: My personal goal that I’ve set is 20 books, I’m pretty sure I can meet that and even exceed it but I don’t want to get too carried away.
Outcome: 42 books read! I’m super sad to say this challenge is not continuing this year, but I’ll still be reading Fantasy like no tomorrow.
Challenge: Read and review 2017 new releases
Goal: There are different levels to this challenge and I’m thinking I’ll probably be level one since I get most of my books from the library.
- 1-30 books per year – New Release Newbie
- 31-60 books per year – New Release Pro
- 61-100 books per year – New Release Veteran
- 101-200 books per year – New Release Enthusiast
- 200+ books per year – New Release Obsessed
Outcome: 41 books read! I did not think I would read this many, but thankfully my library received a ton of new releases and I also found some good deals on books I was hoping to read. I’ll be continuing this challenge in 2018.
Library Love Challenge
Challenge: Read books borrowed from your library instead of buying them
Goal: I’m hoping to reach at least 36 books read that were from the library, while I get most of my books from the library to save money I have a feeling this year I may be buying more as well to compete in these other challenges.
- Dewey Decimal: read 12 books
- Thrifty Reader: read 24 books
- Overdrive Junkie: read 36 books
- Library Card on Fire: read 50+ books
Outcome: 24 books read! Not exactly the range I thought I would be in but still respectable and I will be continuing this challenge in 2018.
