2017 Reading Challenges!

Posted January 5, 2017 by Wendy in recap / 3 Comments

Alright, so what challenges will I be taking on in 2017?? Well firstly, I completed some but also failed some of my challenges last year and am very determined to meet them this year! I will be participating in many of the same challenges as last year, just cutting from five to three! There are two that I failed last year that I hope to complete this year, and one I will be increasing my goal since I met it last year!

Without further ado… my 2017 Reading Challenges!

The Contemporary Romance Reading Challenge hosted by Andi’s ABCs

my goal: the grand slam

I am attempting the Grand Slam level again this year! I was only a FEW books off last year, so I am pretty sure I can hit it this year. The Grand Slam level is 21+ books. I’m ready!


The Rock My TBR Challenge hosted by Sarah at The YA Book Traveler

I failed pretty drastically at this challenge last year. The point of this challenge is to read those books that you have owned for forever and STILL somehow haven’t read yet. Lord knows I have a TON of unread owned books on my shelves and my kindle. I want to be able to get to them finally!

my goal: one a month

At least one per month from either my Kindle or bookshelves — something that I have owned for at least a year and still haven’t read.


The Flights of Fantasy Challenge hosted by Alexa at Alexa Loves Books and Rachel at Hello, Chelly

Fantasy is my favorite! <3 It always makes me happy and a few years ago I realized my fantasy reading had dropped off so I made it a point to get to fantasy books I wanted to read but kept getting pushed to the side. That’s when I first did the Flights of Fantasy challenge in 2015. I didn’t quite make it that year, but last year got to a lot of highly anticipated fantasy reads and loved every second of it. Since I met my goal last year pretty easily, I’ll be increasing that number to make it a challenge for myself!

my goal: 30 fantasy books


And that’s it for the challenges I’ll be doing this year besides the GR one! Which ones are you going to participate in? Let me know in your thoughts below!

  1. I’m so pleased that you’ll be joining us again for the Flights of Fantasy Reading Challenge (and proud of you for crushing it last year)! Here’s to reading more (AMAZING) fantasy books in 2017 <3 Good luck with the other challenges too! I'm doing Rock My TBR as well, and hoping to tackle the gigantic TBR that threatens to topple onto my head whenever I move books around 😉

  2. Hooray!! I’m going to participate in all three of these challenges as well, along with a retellings challenge. You’ve set some lofty goals, I’m impressed!! I’m hoping to read a bunch for Rock My TBR that will hopefully overlap with contemp and fantasy 🙂
