Challenges: Old & New!

Oh, 2012, you have been a year filled with amazing books! I had a great time participating in the Standalone Challenge and the Completely Contemporary Challenge. I completed my goals for both of these challenges! 
Hooray! *confetti toss* 

However, my goal for my Goodreads Challenge was 110 books, but I didn't quite make it. I'm okay with that, though!

Looking ahead for the plans for 2013, I will be participating in the Standalone Challenge again, hosted by Iceybooks and I Like These Books. It's truly great to read these kinds of books and not have to wait another year for the next installment.

I will also be participating in the Paranormal Reading Challenge. This is a new one this year hosted by Megan Likes Books and Auntie Spinelli Reads. I was excited to find this one since I do enjoy Paranormal books.

I also want to see if I can work on the Rory Gilmore Reading Challenge a bit. There are quite a few books on the list that I've been wanting to read and get checked off of that list. I think 2013 is a great year to accomplish some of those!

Finally, my Goodreads Challenge will remain at 110. I want to see if I can do a little better in the coming year since I know when I started slacking on my reading in 2012.

  1. I think reading 100 books in a year is a great accomplishment! I got to 90 this year, but I think I'm gonna make my goal 100 this year, just to see. I'm also participating in the Standalone Challenge and the Paranormal Challenge. It's my first year, so I hope it goes well! Good luck to you too! Especially with the Rory Gilmore Challenge. I love her (and the show!) but man, there are some tough books on that list! :-)

    1. Very tough books on the Rory Gilmore list! I'm not sure how truly far along I'll get with that one. It'll be fun trying, though!

      I enjoyed the Standalone Challenge and I'm looking forward to it again. It truly is nice reading something not in a series. Soooo many series out there.

      Good luck with your challenges and happy reading!!!

  2. I need to work on the Rory Gilmore challenge, too! I don't think I read any books on the list last year ...

    Good luck with all of your reads! :)

  3. Good luck with your reading challenges this year. :)

    Happy New Year...
