My Year in Reading: Cassie-la’s 2016 Reading Challenges

Bibliomantics 2016 Reading Challenges

Now that the warmest Christmas ever is over, it’s time to start looking forward to 2016 — you know, even though I have yet to write up any of my December or 2015 wrap up posts yet.

In 2015 I gave myself absolutely no reading goals and while having zero guidelines seemed freeing, I was pretty disappointed by the number of books I read, how little of my TBR I tackled and the massive number of new releases I missed out on on.

So I decided to use 2016 to participate in/experiment with a few reading challenges to see if that will help me create a more organized and fruitful reading regimen in the new year.

You can peruse my 2016 plans below and click on the sign up links to join in on the fun!

I will be including my own challenge progress in my monthly wrap ups.

    • My goal is to catch up on the 2014 and 2015 books I missed, so hopefully once I catch up on all that I can tackle even older books. It’s a process. =)

      Thanks, good luck with your challenges too!
