Reading Challenges 2016!♥

Saturday, August 01, 2015

  • Hi readers, I'm back!  It's that time of the year again. These are the reading challenges I'm hoping to participate in 2016! Last year goals are here.
  • Fairytale Retelling Challenge is hosted by Melanie from TheDailyProphecy 
  • I did read and love many fantasy books last year, and the challenge I failed btw. I read about 12 books max and my goal was 26.  I'm hoping to read 16-20 books this year, aiming for Wise Princess since last year I wasn't wise at all. 
  • Fairy tale Retelling Lists and Shelves
  • The main goal is to read fairy tale retellings. You can also read books on mythology retellings and folk tales, upto you! You can read books from any year or audience, as long as they are retellings of some classic tales out there. You have until Feb 1st to join.
  • Below are some of the books that I find interesting and I'm hoping to read ..!  Can we see how STUNNING these covers are? Fantasy novels have the best covers.

1) Firsts by 

This is the challenge called The United States of YA hosted by Epic Reads.

They have a different YA book for each state, these are all very popular books in the genre section. I have read only 13 out of the 47, which is sad. I'm hoping to read all of the books listed on the challenge, let's see how it goes for this year! I'm aiming to read atleast 10 books from this challenge this year.

This is an unofficial challenge though, they don't have any link ups or anything - you're free to join by no bounds. Below are some of the books I'm hoping to read.

Personal New Adult challenge is a challenge I set for myself a year ago. NA has been around for a couple of years now, and most of the novels have failed to impress me, although, NA is one of my favorite genre. It's a complicated relationship. 

Goodreads Listopia. 

I'm hoping to discover some gems in a bunch of stones. Last year, I have read about 20 books that are NA, and I have really liked about 4 books which isn't a lot. I'm hoping to read 15 NA books next year for 2016. Below are the books I'm hoping to read .. ! I'm most def. not a fan of NA covers, except the book Rule. I love that guy on that cover *swoons.

Books Read in 2016:

  • Goodreads Challenge 2016 (Personal Challenge)
  • My goal this year is to read 250 books. Last year my goal was 300, unfortunately I couldn't reach it fully and I only read 272 books. Lets see how this goes! 
  • These are some of my books below in my immediate TBR list.

  9. Assalamualaikum Salam sejahtera untuk kita semua, Sengaja ingin menulis
    sedikit kesaksian untuk berbagi, barangkali ada teman-teman yang sedang
    kesulitan masalah keuangan, Awal mula saya mengamalkan Pesugihan Tanpa
    Tumbal karena usaha saya bangkrut dan saya menanggung hutang sebesar
    1M saya sters hampir bunuh diri tidak tau harus bagaimana agar bisa
    melunasi hutang saya, saya coba buka-buka internet dan saya bertemu
    dengan KYAI SOLEH PATI, awalnya saya ragu dan tidak percaya tapi selama 3 hari
    saya berpikir, saya akhirnya bergabung dan menghubungi KYAI SOLEH PATI
    kata Pak.kyai pesugihan yang cocok untuk saya adalah pesugihan
    penarikan uang gaib 4Milyar dengan tumbal hewan, Semua petunjuk saya ikuti
    dan hanya 1 hari Astagfirullahallazim, Alhamdulilah akhirnya 4M yang saya
    minta benar benar ada di tangan saya semua hutang saya lunas dan sisanya
    buat modal usaha. sekarang rumah sudah punya dan mobil pun sudah ada.
    Maka dari itu, setiap kali ada teman saya yang mengeluhkan nasibnya, saya
    sering menyarankan untuk menghubungi KYAI SOLEH PATI Di Tlp 0852-2589-0869
    Atau Kunjungi Situs KYAI agar di
    berikan arahan. Supaya tidak langsung datang ke jawa timur, saya sendiri dulu
    hanya berkonsultasi jarak jauh. Alhamdulillah, hasilnya sangat baik, jika ingin
    seperti saya coba hubungi KYAI SOLEH PATI pasti akan di bantu Oleh Beliau
