Happy New Year and Welcome Book Challenges

It’s that time of year again: time for me to commit to more than I will actually follow through with. There are just so many good books and awesome challenges that I want to try them all. Here’s what I’m going to do for my challenges. Some I made up, some I found and I’ll link you to those.

Read My Own Damn Books mixed with a personal challenge to get my reading % on Netgalley to 70%. It’s a tall order, one I very much want to fill, so I shall cross my fingers. As far as the Read My Own Damn Books, I’ll be doing paper books and Netgalley books. I’m going to gather the titles of all my ARCs, write them down and throw them in a jar. Every month I’ll jiggle the jar and pull out a title to be finished by the end of that month.

Also, this is so bad, I know, but this will include any books I buy in 2017 b/c I have book-buying problems.

2017-discussion-challenge3

I’ve been writing a discussion post for months now, about reading with ADHD. I still haven’t posted it because I want it to be perfect. 7 months later and it’s still not live. This is going to be my first discussion post of the year. I hope to be relatable for those of you struggling, and a new vision for those of you with no experience in the matter. #LetsDiscuss2017

My goal is to write two reviews every month in 2017 for a total of 24 book reviews. So far I haven’t written one in quite a while so I’m hoping this challenge will get me back on track.

I think out of all the challenges I’m most excited about this one. Below are some of the suggestions. I’m looking forward to this one so much because I love exploring new series. For instance, I’m dying to read more books in Cassandra Clare’s The Mortal Instruments series because I MUST know how it ends and I MUST be able to read Lady Midnight. My goal is to read 12 books that are new to me. Below you’ll find a quote from the host’s site.

Anything “new” to you. For example…
–First time reading an author
–first book in a series
–first book you’ve read from a series (doesn’t have to be book one)
–first time trying a genre/subgenre
–a debut book from an author (even if you’ve read them before)

Then I have the miscellaneous ones:

  • FOR EVERY FIVE BOOKS I GET I’LL GET RID OF ONE
  • I will participate at least two memes a month
  • And, probably the most important challenge: FIND MY KINDLE
