2015 Reading/Blogging Challenges!

So, I haven't actually done any reading or blogging challenges before(besides a read-a-thon that doesn't really count...) so we will just have to see about how well I am with following through on these! I am doing 2 reading challenges and 1 blogging challenge, so i figured I'd use this post to announce which ones I will be doing!

Goodreads Challenge:
I'm not counting this as a "challenge" but thought I'd announce my goal anyways! For 2014 my goal was 103 books which is a random enough number that i picked because it was one more than  I'd read the year before, I reached my goal in August or September and am currently at 130. Next year I'm anticipating less reading time because I will be focusing a giant chunk of my time on writing and don't want to stress myself too much on the reading side of things therefore I'm setting myself the same goal of 103! 

Flights Of Fantasy reading challenge:

Hosted by Alexa Loves Books and Hello, Chelly and it's all about reading more fantasy books! You can read all about it and sign up here!

Fantasy is my favorite genre and I read quite a few less than normal for me in 2014, so I really want to step it up in 2015 and figured this was a good way to work on that! With this one you can set whatever goal you would like to so I'm going with 50 to start!

2015 TBR Pile Challenge:

2015TBRbuttonThis one is hosted at Roof Beam Reader and is all about reading some of those books that you've had on your TBR pile for YEARS! Read all about it here!
Basically, you read one book a month off your TBR pile but the book has to be at least 1 year old! You're also allowed 2 alternates! 
The books I'm planning on reading for this one I announced in this post, so that it will be easier to keep track of it!

2015 Discussion Challenge:
2015 Discussion Challenge3

This one is hosted by Shannon @It Starts At Midnight and Nicole @ Feed Your Fiction Addiction and it's all about discussion posts! You can read all about it and sign up here.

I'm going to be trying for the Discussion Dabbler level which is 1-12 discussion posts. I'm tentatively planning for 1 discussion a month.

So, that's it! I tried not to sign up for too many because knowing myself as well as I do I'm pretty sure a couple months from now I'll have forgotten or given up on all of these... But I shall give it a valiant effort!

Are you going to be attempting any challenges?


  1. Yay! So glad you're joining us for the Discussion Challenge! Can't wait to discuss with you!

  2. I will echo Nicole and say "yay" of course!!! I like this idea of the TBR challenge too, I am going to have to go check that out! Thanks for sharing these, and good luck!

  3. I might have to join up on the discussion and fantasy ones, I'm aiming to post more talks in 2015 (this year, I've only posted, like, three). I'm also in to fantasy, and I desperately need a break from paranormal romance. This year I'm doing the Alphabet Soup, Banned Books, and Color Coded challenges. In addition, I'm attempting to start a 1,000,000 pages endeavor, to read 1,000,000 pages from books and post the reviews for them (this will probably take me somewhere around five or six years, seeing that I post reviews once a week). But good luck on your challenges! I wish you the best of luck in completing them:)

    1. Haha, 1,000,000 pages!?! That sounds intense!

      Thanks and good luck to you too!
