2016 Cloak and Dagger Reading Challenge


This reading challenge is hosted by Stormi @ Books, Movies, Reviews! Oh My! and Barb @ Booker T’s Farm

2016 Cloak and Dagger Reading Challenge

I kind of participated in this challenge last year–meaning that I signed up for it and continued to list mysteries I read throughout the year, but I didn’t link any of mysteries after the first month or so. And when the challenge was abandoned by the blogger who hosted it last year I didn’t switch the challenge over to Stormi’s blog. (Sorry about that, Stormi. I meant to, but didn’t get it done.)


Anyway, I did read quite a few mysteries last year–28 mysteries in 2015. I hope to read a few more this year and have some lined up so I’m going to try the Special Agent level — 31+ books.

Other Details

I will try to link my reviews in the monthly link up. There are also giveaways at the halfway mark and at the end of the year.

2016 New Release Challenge


2016 New Release Challenge

The 2016 New Release Challenge is a year-long challenge in which we aim to read books released in 2016. The hosts for the New Release Challenge are Lexxie at Unconventional Book Views and Stormi @ Books, Movies, Reviews Oh My!

There will be monthly update posts that you can link to, and each quarter – at the end of March, end of June, end of September and in December, there will be a giveaway with the update as well.

A new release challenge is a new challenge for me though I did read 36 new releases in 2015. I am challenging myself to read 31 – 45 new releases–New Release Veteran. I’m hoping to read more than 36 new releases.

There is a quarterly giveaway so I will try to link up my reviews at least quarterly though there will also be a chance to link up reviews each month. Linking up is not mandatory which is good for me since I’m not very good at remembering to do these posts!


Have you signed up for any reading challenges this year?

2016 TBR Pile Reading Challenge


For the third year in a row I ‘m participating in the TBR Pile Reading Challenge hosted by Bookish Lifesyle. This is Bookish Lifestyle’s 5th Annual TBR Pile Reading Challenge!

I’m a bit behind with my Reading Challenge posts this year since this is my first sign-up post. I plan to post all my 2016 reading challenge posts by the end of the week with a post listing all my reading challenges.

My Goal

In 2015 I challenged myself to read 31-40 TBR books. I completed the challenged by reading 36 books from my TBR books. I’m going to challenge myself to the same number of books this year–31-40 Sweet Summer Fling.

The rest of the challenge

I don’t think I will have time to participate in the TBR Pile Book Club. I will try to post a wrap-up post every other month, but I didn’t manage to do that in 2015 so I may have trouble with that again. Since I participate in quite a few challenges it’s hard to remember all the different interim posts. I do a pretty good job of keeping track of all my challenges by creating a separate page on my blog for each of them. I update each page each time I review a book that matches that challenge.
