2017 Challenges

I haven't really officially signed up for any challenges but these are the few that I participate in every year and some of my own personal goals.  I usually work on reading books from my TBR shelf but since I continue buying books, the pile never seems to go down.  So this year instead I decided I would read each new book I receive or purchase (unless they are specifically for a collection or building up a series before reading it).  So anyway here are my challenges for the year as well as links to the reviews of books completed.
 
 
Children's Book Challenge
I usually go way overboard with these books so I am trying to keep it around 65 books.
 
 
Early Reader Challenge
Again this is a challenge that is easy to read a bunch so I am going to try to keep it between 50 - 55 books.
 
 
Graphic Novel Challenge
I enjoy this challenge and usually post reviews every other weekend so my goal for the year is 25 total.
 
 
Audio Book Challenge:
In recent years I have really come to love audio books and have been listening to them more and more. My goal for this year is 30 to 40 books.
2. Ice Like Fire
3. Frost Like Night
4. Winner's Curse
5. Winner's Crime
6. Winner's Kiss
7. The Siren
8. Watersmeet
9. Centaurs Daughter
 
 
Trilogy Challenge:
The past couple of years I have really focused on reading series, but I never really considered trilogies as a series. So this year I am focusing on trilogies and I hope to read one each month for a total of 10-12 trilogies with roughly 36 books.
1.  Snow Like Ashes Trilogy: Book 1, Book .1, Book 2, Book 2.5, Book 3
2. Winner's Curse Trilogy: Book .5, Book 1, Book 2, Book 3
3. Sons of the Revolution Trilogy: Book 1, Book 2, Book 3
4. Watersmeet Series: Book 1, Book 2
 
 
Requested Reviews:
I love discovering new to me and new authors, and supporting them by posting reviews. It is easy to get carried away with accepting books for review and netgalley so I have set a limit of no more than 25 -30 books.
2. Running on Empty (direct)
3. Edge of the Blade (netgalley)
4. Like a Closed Fist (direct)
5. Miranda and Caliban (netgalley)
6. Guilded Cage (netgalley)
7. Lord of the Mountains (netgalley)
8. From Ant to Eagle (direct)
9. Letters to the Lost (netgalley)
10. Ashes (direct)
11. Given to the Sea (penguin first to read)
 
 
Books Added to Shelves
As I said before, I am trying to read books as they come in as opposed to adding them to by TBR shelves. My goal is to read each of the books within about a month. I will list the books here and then link to them when I have completed a review.
4. Winners Kiss
5. Bubble Trouble
6. Blaze Loves to Race
7. Beauty and the Beast: Lost in a Book
8. Heartstone
9. Beauty and the Beast
10. Norse Mythology
11. Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them
12. Beauty and the Beast: Belle's Library
13. Trapped
14. Samurai Rising

15. Pancho Bandito and the Amarillo Armadillo
16. The Mating
17. Hold Your Breath
18. Fan the Flames
19. The Keeper
20. Love and Muddy Puddles
 
 
TBR Shelf Books
While I am not officially participating in any TBR challenge, I still like to keep track of the books I have read off my TBR shelf.
 
 
RI Authors
As usual, I love supporting my local authors and host a whole month of RI authors so I am shooting for about 20 books by my local authors.
