2016 Reading Challenge

2016 Reading Challenge


Last year I read anything and everything that struck my fancy. I made it to my goal of 52 book reviews (with an extra one in there) but without much rhyme or reason. When I started seeing some reading challenges that allowed me to pick my own books, but had fun goals to meet, I immediately started my search for the perfect challenge! So I combined a couple of reading challenges that I came across and made a few personal edits to the lists. The originals can be found on Pinterest and at Bethany House Fiction. I also included the books that I am planning on reading to meet some of these goals. I set my goal a little lower this year at 36 books, but there are several books that will meet more than one goal on this list. I hope this gives you some ideas for the coming year. I have filled in several of the slots with books that I hope to read this year.
Join me in this (or a different) reading challenge and let's broaden our horizons of reading. Please feel free to share your book ideas in the comments below! Happy New Year and happy reading!!!
