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.

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.
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.

6. Ralph S. Mouse Trilogy: Book 1, Book 2, Book 3 - COMPLETE

Requested Reviews:
