2016 Reading Challenge Updates (Q4) – December

Posted on by


Well the year has come to an end. I’ve completed almost all of my challenges. I set out to read more contemporary romance, but only read 3 out of the 6. Maybe next year. I also set out to read more of the books I purchased, but that one never went anywhere. I did good at the beginning of the year and then….

    • I’ve bought so many for my kindle and have yet to read them. All those .99c and $1.99 deals that pop up, get me. I wanted to nock several off in 2016, but I got side tracked. Oh well!

  2. That sounds pretty much how my challenges went this year, failed some of them and di petty to really well on some others.

    Nice on reading more than your goal on the Goodreads challenge. You did pretty well on those urban fantasy and paranormal genre challenges.

    • In 2015 I barely made my Goodreads goal it was cutting it close, so i didn’t make it to hard in 2016. More a goal I could reach with some wiggle room. Ya, all the challenges where great except reading my own books and I executed the UF and Paranormal.

  3. Great job on your challenges. You really killed it with several of them. Good luck on the news ones for 2017.

    • Ya, I kinda set that one of the charts, but Paranormal is my main reading preferences. I was surprised how many I did read. ^_^

  5. Great job! I had a really hard time with my challenges this year.
