2017 Reading Challenges

reading-challenges-2

It’s that time of the year when we have to choose the challenges in which we are gonna participate in. After thinking about for a few days, I chose to participate in 4 challenges hosted by other people and one challenge that I will be hosting that’s part reading challenge and part blogging challenge. I have participated in one of these challenges before, the rest are new to me and I’m excited to see how I do. 

This year I want to try and be more involved in the part of the challenges that’s more community oriented. Last yeat I read the books and kept track of how I was doing in each challenge and I shared that in  my wrap up, but I rarely linked my wrap ups or reviews in host’s blog, I rarely commented in others people posts that were related to the challenges, I never participated in a twitter chat. It’s like I participated, but not really. I want to change that this year. 

Here are the challenges I’m paticipating in: 

1.  Diversity Bingo 2017

I have been saying for a while that I want to read more diversely, but it’s only in the last couple of weeks that I feel like I have been making a consious effort to accomplish that goal. I want to keep working in 2017 to read more diverse books and specially more #ownvoices books, that’s why I decided to participate in the Diverse Bingo 2017. The idea is to cover all the squares within the course of a year. It was created by a bunch of wonderful people of twitter (you can find out who, if you click in the image).
At the end of 2017, I will have read 36 diverse books and that’s really exciting.



2. Beat the Backlist 

As weird as it may sound, I usually read more backlist books than new releases in a year. Because of that I joined a challenge to read backlist books in 2016 and this year I also wanted to participate in a similar challenge and that’s why I joined this challenge hosted @ Novel Knight. My goal is to read 30 backlist books in 2017, even if I think I will read more based on the amount of backlist books I read in 2016.

Also, I will participate in the Hogwarts House Cup Mini challenge that’s tied to the Beat the Backlist challenge. My house is ravenclaw. You get points for your house based on the backlist books you read and every month a house wins the house cup.

3. Flights of Fantasy 

This challenge is hosted by Alexa @ Alexa Loves Books and Rachel @ Hello, Chelly. The idea is to choose a certain number of fantasy books and see if you can read them in a year. Last year, I participated in this one and I even participated for a while in the Flights of Fantasy Book Club. My goal for 2016 was 30 books and I didn’t complete that goal, but I did read 27 fantasy books. I was so close! Lately I haven’t been reading as much fnatasy as I used to and that’s why I didn’t complete the goal.

For 2017, I’m lowering the number of fantasy books I want to read and that’s why my goal is to 20 fantasy books in 2017.


4. Goodreads challenge 

The last two years I set a goal of 52 books in my Goodreads challenge, which means 1 book per week. In 2015, I read 55 books and in 2016 I read 100 books. I have been thinking about this for a while and I decided that I will try to read 80 books in 2017. I think that I will read more, but I want to push myself a little without putting to much pressure in myself.


5.The Pride and Prejudice Project

This is a sort of challenge that I will be hosting, the idea is to post once a month a review of a book that is based on or is a sort retelling of Pride and Prejudice or maybe a review for a movie adaptation or a TV show or a web series based on Pride and prejudice.

2016 Reading Challenges

Hi guys! I have never participated in a reading challenge, but that’s gonna change this year, because I just signed up for a bunch of challenges. I think I went a little bit overboard, I’m participating in 5 challenges and I put really high goals for all of them. Nonetheless, I think it’s gonna be alright , because a lot of the books I want to read in 2016 count for more that one challenge, so I’m not that worried. I think I’m being optimistic. Let’s begin! 

Flighs of Fantasy 

This is the first challenge I signed up for and I’m really excited to be participating. Flights of Fantasy is a reading challenge hosted by Alexa @ Alexa Loves Books and Rachel @ Hello, Chelly, and the goal is to read as many fantasy books as you want.  Fantasy is my favorite genre and it was my most read genre in 2015, so I feel like this is the perfect challenge for me. My goal is to read 30 fantasy books this year. 


Backlist Books Challenge 

This challenge is hosted by Bekka @ Pretty Deadly Reviews and all you have to do is read backlist books. I’m really excited about this challenge because I read a lot of backlist books, if you check my reviews they are mostly for  this kind of books. Another perfect challenge for me! My goal are 20 books. but I think I’m gonna read a lot more. 


Rock My TBR 

This challenge is hosted by Sarah @ The YA Book TravelerI decided to participate because the other day I was looking through my kindle and I realized that I buy so many ebooks and never read them, so I decided that I would take this challenge as a way to take down the number of ebooks I own and have not read. Nonetheless, I will also read for this challenge some of the books I have on my shelf. Sarah (the host of this challenge) recommend s reading at least one book a month, so that’s what I’m gonna do!

Finishing the Series Challenge 

The goal of this challenge is to complete a series from whatever book your up to until the last published book, and it’s hosted by  Bea @ Bea’s Book Nook. I will try to complete level 3 (expirienced), which means I’ll try to complete 3-6 series. 



Goodreads Reading Challenge 

My goodreads goal in 2016 will be the same one than last year, which was 52 books, that means 1 book per week. I just don’t want to put so much presion on myself with this reading challenge.
