2016 Reading Challenges (Part 2)

December 15, 2015 Challenges 9

Reading ChallengesSo many of you know I am some what of a challenge addict. I have already listed some of the challenges I will be doing next year and here are some more. 🙂

2016HWLogo-300x300HW Assignment

I thought long and hard on this one, I wasn’t going to do it but then I thought why not, so I failed last time. Clean slate I shall try again…lol. Hosted by Berls @ Fantasy is More Fun and Michelle @ Because Reading. Check out their blogs for more info.

This time I am only doing level 1 which is to read one book a month that I have picked out for my reading list. Hoping this will be more doable for me. My problem with this challenge is I am such a mood reader and some times what I think I might want to read and put on my list becomes something I don’t want to read…lol.

I am going to go with review books that I didn’t get to in 2015 that I need to read. Hoping they will fit my mood…lol.

Slayed on the Slope dragonsare people Undercover Bride Case of the Invisible Dog A Murder of Mages Girl in the Maze quicksand Broken Promise  john doe Danger wears white In The Spinsters Bed Never,Never



Netgalley Reading Challenge

So I haven’t seen anything on a netgalley/edelweiss  challenge so I am going to sign up for this one. If the other one does come up then I will concentrate on Edelweiss book on it. 🙂

Well since I had to sign up for the blogger shame challenge we all know I am in need of a good Netgalley challenge…lol. So I am going to go for the Hardcore  level as I am sure most of my books for next year will fit this challenge. 🙂



alphabet-2016Alphabet Soup Challenge

Fill up your bowl with reads from the letters in the alphabet. 🙂 As much as I am going to read I think I can pretty much feel up my bowl, the hard letters like X, Q or Z I am not so sure of but I will try. She is nice and lets us put those trouble letters anywhere in the word so that helps.  🙂 This is hosted by Escape with Dolly Cas.

cozychallenge2016Cruzin Thru the Cozies

This goes perfect with my Cloak and Dagger challenge and I did it this year so I figure why not sign up for next year! 🙂 Hosted by Yvonne @ Socrates’ Book Reviews.

This year I only signed on to do like 12 books and I read 31. 🙂

I am going for Level 4 – Sleuth Extraordinaire – Read 21 or more books. 🙂

PrintAudiobook challenge

I loved this challenge this year it was the first year that I read a what seems like a ton of audiobooks. Been waiting impatiently for this sign up…lol. 🙂 Hosted by Hot Listens and The Book Nympho.

I am going for Marathoner which is 50+ as I  listened to over 70 this year! I expect it to be around the same if not more next year.

I really need to read some of my own books so going to give this one a try but I will start out with the easiest level…lol.

Vintage Scavenger HuntVintage Mystery Cover Scavenger Hunt Challenge

So I am going to sign up for this one cause I am in a huge mystery mood and I need to read some of the older mysteries that I have been wanting to read them so now know more excuses. 🙂

Here is a little about what it’s about but for more info go check out the host My  Reader’s Block.

*For the purposes of this challenge, the Golden Age Vintage Mysteries must have been first published before 1960. Golden Age short story collections (whether published pre-1960 or not) are permissible providedall of the stories included in the collection were originally written pre-1960.  Please remember that some of our Golden Age Vintage authors wrote well after 1959–so keep an eye on the original publication date and apply them to the appropriate card.  Silver Age Vintage Mysteries may be first published any time from 1960 to 1989 (inclusive).  Again, Silver Age short story collections published later than 1989 are permissible as long as they include no stories first published later than 1989.  Yes, I admit my dates are arbitrary and may not exactly meet standard definitions of Golden or Silver Age. 

I’m going to start out with finding six for Golden and go from there if I do more then…go me! 🙂


Vintage Golden Scavenger 2016

and six for Silver. 🙂

Vintage Silver Scavenger 2016


So I thought this challenge might not be happening as there was no post yet, so I guess I was just a little to impatient…lol. So I am going to sign up but concentrate on my EDELWEISS books on this one since I already signed up for a Netgalley challenge. Hosted by Falling for YA.

So I will go with the Bronze level which is 10 books but really I am hoping for at least 15. 🙂

      This year was my first year that I got organized enough to realize I actually could do the challenges if I was organized…lol.

    Yes I’m totally an addict also. I’m signing up for the TBR challenge thanks to this post. I have way too many challenges for this upcoming year, but hopefully I will have fun and read more in 2016. I didn’t blog or read a whole lot this year. I was in a reading slump for most of the year, but I’m finally out of it and ready to start off 2016.

    Thanks for sharing these! I see at least four I want to do and will be doing the Alphabet Soup again next year. I made it this year. Also will be signing up for your Horror Reading Challenge. Working on getting my wrap up posts ready for all of my challenges this year first.

  3. Laura Thomas

    I signed up for the Horror Reading Challenge and I’m doing the Alphabet Soup one again this year. I think I’ll do the Cruisin Through The Cozies too. Shouldn’t be hard as I read so many!
