2017 Reading — Challenges & Expectations

New Year’s resolutions?  The only ones I have ever set have involved books.  😉  For me, starting the New Year off right includes setting new reading goals and figuring out all the books that I hope to read in the following year.  🙂

I started fairly early last year compiling a list of books that would be coming out in 2017 that I was looking forward to reading… You can find my list here.

These are the challenges that I have set for myself this year:

2017 Reading Challenge
—  Goal: Read a total of at least 90 books in 2017

New Authors To You Challenge
Goal: Read at least 15 new-to-me authors in 2017

Library Challenge
Goal: Read at least 50 library books in 2017

Slay the TBR Dragon Challenge
Goal: Read at least 50 books from my TBR pile in 2017

Finish The Series Challenge
Goal: Finish at least 12 series in 2017

Audiobook Challenge
Goal: Finish at least 30 audiobooks in 2017

Bingo Challenge
Goal: Finish at least 5 books in 2017 (to complete 1 Bingo on the card)

Some books that I’m really hoping to read this year:
(not including the 2017 new releases)

These, of course, are only a few of the many books I want to read– these are some of the ones that I have sitting on my shelf right now, just waiting for me to find some time for them.  I know I won’t read all the books on my to-read list, but I do hope to put a good-sized dent in it.  Wish me luck!  😉
