2015 Reading Challenges

Hello all!

This year I'm committed to coming back to the blogging world full force, making friends, commenting, and especially blogging. Participation is the name of the game this year. To support that goal I will be joining a whopping three challenges. I'm very excited!


The Re-Read Challenge hosted by Hannah at So Obsessed With and Kelli of Belle of the Literati. I'm not much of a re-reader. Last year I managed to re-read one of my childhood favorites, The Two Princesses of Bamarre by Gail Carson Levine. I had so much fun reliving the story. Since a few of my all time favorite series have either ended or gotten way-beyond being able to play catch-up in recent years, I decided a re-read challenge might be a good way to reconnect to my favorite books and series. A list of strong contenders for re-reading are listed below. To see a full list of what I could re-read, click here.

A Series a Month Challenge hosted by Danielle of Love at First Page. I am THE WORST at finishing series. I abandon them like hot potatoes after the first book most of the time. Especially if there will be drama in the next book. To end my abysmal track record, I'm encouraging myself to finish or at least catch-up with a few series. Realistically, my list is way too long and I will not complete it. But, I like having hope and a wide variety of books to choose from. A list of most likely reading suspects are below.

A 2015 Bloggiesta hosted by Bloggiesta. I've never done a Readaton or Bloggiesta before! I'm a little weird about reading. Some times I'll read books at my house on the weekends. But, my primary reading time is usually when I'm waiting for a class to start. I have long times in-between classes and have to arrive really early to park in my desired garage. This leaves about an hour to twiddle my thumbs . . . or read an awesome book. I'm thinking this challenge might be a little difficult for me because I like to decompress after a good book. Still, I'm willing and happy to try something new.

Happy Reading,
