2015 Reading Challenges

Another year, another million and a half reading challenges ;) Here are the ones I am signing up for this year!


JOIN HERE!

I LOVE mythology, and I am super excited to be hosting this challenge this year! "The challenge is to read as many full-length novels as you can that have a prominent mythology theme."

My goal: Titan Level: 11-20 Mythology Books





I LOVE this challenge! Witches are my favorites supernatural creatures and I just adore magic! The challenge is to read "...Any full length book that includes a witch as a main character or includes major witchcraft elements counts. They may be fiction or non-fiction..."

My goal: Maiden: Read 6 – 10 Witchy Books






"The goal is to read fairytale retellings, but if you want you can also pick other retellings. It’s up to you what you count as a fairytale." I love fairytale retellings! I'm hoping I'll get a couple of books in this year! I'm thinking Cinder by Marissa Meyer...

My goal: Prince Charming: 1 – 4 books




The 2015 Re-Read Challenge
JOIN HERE!

I love re-reading books, as I've mentioned before! SO I thought this challenge was great! Basically... "any genre, length or format of book counts, as long as it's a re-read." No set number of books (though I'd like to read at least 5); just read as many as you'd like/can! You're supposed to make a list of books you want to re-read, but that wouldn't exactly work for me seeing as how I'm a big time mood reader especially when it comes to re-reads! So I'll be listing the books down below as I read them :)

"The goal: To read as many prequels and sequels as you can. You set your goal at whatever number works for you. Novellas count, either prequels or sequels (i.e. #0.5, #1.5, #2.5, etc)." So this challenge is based on a point system, not on a set number of books: "1 point for each prequel or sequel novella read and reviewed, 2 points for each full-length sequel read and reviewed, 10 points for completing and reviewing a full series (doesn't require novellas), and you do not get points for the first book in a series."

My goal: 25-50 points: Amateur





JOIN HERE!

This challenge is perfect for me! It is just what I need! I am determined to finish at least 4 series this year! I've always been a huge fan of series books, but I end up starting them and never getting around to finishing them. That's why I originally started this reading challenge. This is a challenge to finish up those unfinished series books!

My goal: Level 4 (Expert series reader): Complete 4 or more series

"This is the point of the challenge: You’re committing to reading a set list of books and a certain number of them each month. It’s your chance to finally hold yourself accountable for those books you keep promising yourself you’ll read!" SO perfect for me! The following books are always ones where I say, "I need to read that one soon!" but then I never get to it for one reason or another! Well, no more excuses! It's time to read said books! I'm also hoping this challenge will help me finish some of those series I've started but haven't finished yet.

My goal: Reading Level 2: 12 books (1 book/month) - 1 Extra Credit, 1 Pass

Spider's Bite (Elemental Assassin, #1) With All My Soul (Soul Screamers, #7) Body & Soul (The Ghost and the Goth, #3) Perception (Clarity, #2) Boundless (Unearthly, #3) Crossed (Matched, #2)

My goal: Easy as Pie: 1-5 Challenges (Entered & Completed)





Oh gods, I think I went a little overboard with the reading challenges... *gulps* Someone send help! Haha, kidding ;) But seriously, I might have gone slightly insane, lol.

I'd love to know what challenges you've signed up for, if any! Let me know! :)
