    I love the progress bars! What a great idea, I am also doing a lot of reading challenges this year.

    You’ve got some awesome reading plans this year!!
    I joined the Goodreads challenge like I do every year. I set up my goal for a 100 books. Hopefully I will read much more but I went with a save goal!! LOL. I haven’t joined any other challenges, but I probably will join some throughout the year. One year long challenge was enough for me now. ๐Ÿ˜€

    We are so glad to have you back for the Audiobook Challenge in 2016. I just finished Sweep in Peace and I really loved it. Can’t wait to hear your thoughts. Marked in Flesh is high on my list too. The only other challenge I’m doing is the Goodreads challenge. Reading on two blogs makes it too difficult for me to track and I was not good about doing wrap up posts and following up with the hosts. I do have a personal goal of finishing some series though too. Here’s to a great 2016! Happy New Year!

    Awesome challenges this year!! We signed up for some ourselves after not participating in any last year. This year I signed up for the Rock my TBR, Diverse Reads and Contemporary Romance challenges, as well as Goodreads of course. For Goodreads I always put 100… but I’ve been reading a lot more than that. I actually reached 163 in 2015. So for this year I put it at 125. ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m constantly floored by how many books you’re able to read. You’re a reading machine, woman!! ♥ Best of luck with all of your challenges this year!

  5. Samantha

    Good luck with your challenges! I joined the New Release, Finishing the Series and GoodReads challenges as well. I also signed-up for the Read My Own Damn Books, Pick Your Genre and New to You ones as well since they all tie in nicely with each other.

    The only challenge I’m doing this year is the Goodreads but it was so hard not to sign up for all the pretties! You’re doing some great ones! Bea’s challenge and the audio one were especially hard to not sign up for. This is the first year I’m tracking audios the same as books and I’m excited to see just how many I listen too! Good luck with your goals this year!

    I’m trying not to take on too many challenges this year and to only do challenges that are REALLY a challenge for me – keeping up is too much work lol! I dropped the audiobook challenge this year because it’s too easy for me – I devour audiobooks ๐Ÿ™‚ But I may grab Bea’s challenge – that’s one I need to work on! Good luck with your challenges Kimba ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. Andrea ( aka rokinrev)

    Going easy on myself this year…230 books on GoodReads, top level on Craving for Cozies, and C,earing my eReader Challenge. And I will continue reviewing NetGallies.

  9. Daniela Ark

    the UBB plugin add does make it look good with the progress bars! ๐Ÿ™‚
    I saw your 250 challenge in GR, I know you can make it ๐Ÿ™‚ easily ๐Ÿ™‚
    I’m in with the finish the series. Any challenge that says “finish” I’m in after the horrible reading slump I had lol my tower of DNF is humungous LOL
    I’m getting better but I still went for a merely 30 books GE challenge ๐Ÿ™‚
    Good luck Kim!

    Iโ€™m not good at challenges. Iโ€™m a very mood reader and I donโ€™t like to feel pressure. Iโ€™m impressed by your goals, Kim. Iโ€™m only aiming for 50 books in 2016.
