Reading Challenges 2016


This challenge will hopefully help me go through some of these books that have been on my shelf for a long time.

Review copies: 17

Bookshelf at home: 59

Bookshelf at school: ** About 10?**

Total: 87

The damage is better than I thought it would be!

I want to read 35% of my TBR bookshelf this year, so at least 30 books.



I liked this one better than Popsugar’s this year. And, I have to admit, some of these might be harder for me to find. This should also help me knock out some of the books that are already on my bookshelf!

  2. Read a nonfiction book about science
  3. Read a collection of essays
  4. Read a book out loud to someone else
  5. Read a middle grade novel

Goodreads Challenge


And I’m not sure how invested in this one I am, as I mentioned above, but I’d like to look at it every now and then to make sure I’m diversifying my reading.

It’s a good thing so many of these are overlapping!

What (if any) challenges are you participating in this year?
