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.
