As someone who isn’t a fan of challenges (eye roll), I am adding a couple of challenges to the list! I am also increasing the number of books read for each challenge!
Goodreads Reading Challenge
read 130 books
As of writing this post, I have read 134 books and I am floored! I mean, I’m not a fast reader but it does look like I have read more books this year!
For next year, I am aiming to read 130 books. Wish me luck and I hope I will not fail!
review 80 books

As of writing this post, I have reviewed 71 books! Now, I am one of those reviewers who struggle to write reviews! Eeep! I know. I’m weird.
So for 2018, I am aiming to review 80 books! This doesn’t look like such a stretch since I have reviewed more books this year than last year.
listen to 80 audiobooks

I listen to quite a number of audiobooks. This contributed to the high number of books “read” this year so I decided to join the Audiobook Challenge, because why not? I mean, I am already a fan of audiobooks, right?
I am aiming to listen to 80 audiobooks for 2018. As of right now, I have listened to 62 audiobooks. Because I am also increasing the number of books to read, I decided to aim high and listen to 80! (OMG! I don’t know what I’m doing!)
Contemporary Romance Challenge
read 50 contemporary romance books
Grand Slam: read 21+ books
Hosted by Andi’s ABCs | Sign-Up
As of writing this post, I have read 38 contemporary romance books because OMG! I am hooked! I decided to join the Contemporary Romance Challenge because I really, really want to catch up on contemporaries!
Beat the Backlist Challenge
read 40 books published before 2018
Team Book Bards
Hosted by The Novel Knight | Sign-Up
I currently have 51 books on my TBR pile published in 2017 that I haven’t read. Well, my goal is to look at these books and see if I can read 40-ish of it. I may read books published before 2017 but I will try NOT to count it (fingers crossed).
Book Blog Discussion Challenge
write 25 bookish discussions
Chatty Kathy – write 21-30 posts
Hosted by Feed Your Fiction Addiction & It Starts at Midnight | Sign-Up
This year is the second year that I participated in this challenge and I ACTUALLY MET MY GOAL! I am super excited! I also love coming up with bookish discussion topics and interacting with other book bloggers.
Upping the number by 5, I am aiming to write 25 discussion posts!

Quite a few of these I will be participating in these. I do want the backlist challenge and the review challenge. I was browsing my books on goodreads, and almost 1000 books I have read I haven’t reviewed. Probably books I read before I started a blog and never did a review for. Good luck with all of these here.
OMG!!! 1000?? I haven’t been tracking books read seriously before so I only have a few in my Goodreads read list.. 🙂
Sophia Rose says
Wow! Lots of good ones. Cheering you on Zeee! 🙂
Thanks, Sophia! ☺️
Yeah! We can root for each other with the Discussion Challenge. Those posts are so hard for me, so I thought doing the challenge will keep me accountable. Good luck with all your challenges!
