I have a lot of goals for 2015. Overall though I just want my blogging and reading to better, and this includes challenges! I chose carefully this year and goals that I know that I can achieve so here they are…
I am SO excited to participate in this challenge. Re-reading is actually one of my overall main goals for 2015. I miss re-reading so much, and much like a lot of bloggers, I’ve put it aside since starting blogging for the newest and hottest releases. I am going to be making a huge effort to ensure that I re-read more, and in turn complete this challenge!
I’m hoping to read a minimum of 10. It’s less than a book a month, but it’s enough that I will feel satisfied at the end of the year having gotten back in the re-reading groove!
I am going to be flying by the seat of my pants for the most part but a few that I would definitely like to reread are: Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery, Little Women by Louisa May Alcott, The Distance Between Us by Kasie West and Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell! I have been wanting to do a reread of these four specifically for some time so I can’t wait to dive into these stories again.

I want to broaden my reading a bit in 2015, and fairytales and retellings are always something that I have been interested in so this is perfect! Last year I always picked a really tough level and something that was unachievable for me so this year I’m scaling back quite a bit so I’m starting low for this challenge. I’m aiming for Prince Charming: 1 – 4 books. It’s the first level, but I hope to at least read 4. Obviously if I get higher than that, it’s only a win but I want to make sure that this is something that I CAN do, but is still out of my comfort zone.
This will be my second year participating in this challenge, and I’m really excited to do it again! I was actually really good with this challenge last year, and might have even completed it but I sucked at keeping track. This year, I’m going to change that and ensure that I do keep track! Series are another of my main focuses this year so I know I will be able to achieve my goal of 76-100 points: Professional.

This was another challenge that I failed on in 2014 and probably the one I regret not completing the most. I LOVE reading debut authors and discovering new authors to fall in love with. The first year I participated, in 2013, I flew through the books and discovered so many amazing authors. I need to get back to that so this year I am aiming to complete the bare minimum of 12. And I will!

Haha, I can only laugh at horrible I was at reading my own bookshelf in 2014 and I am definitely changing that in 2015! I am aiming for the 11-20 A Friendly Hug level! I hope to read 20 books, which is less than 2 a month. Gosh, if I can’t complete this I have no hope of ever clearing my TBR 😛
I am tremendously excited for this challenge! I have really started to get into fantasy, and not just the fantasy that I have loved in the past (Harry Potter) but more advanced worlds, high fantasy and things that I didn’t enough have a slight interest in before! I can honestly say that fantasy, all of the genres, are one of my absolute favorites now! I am aiming to read 15 books. I first thought 10 but I can name at least 6 that I am going to read in the first quarter of the year so I knew that wasn’t enough of a challenge for me, so 15 it is! I am so pumped to read all the fantasy books in 2015!!
I think this is a great idea for a challenge and I am thrilled to be participating! Discussion posts are another of my goals for 2015, so I had to join up for this challenge to hold myself accountable every month. I’m aiming for 1-12 – Discussion Dabbler. I’m hoping to get at least one discussion posted every month!

This couldn’t have come at a better time. As much as I am an organized person my nature, and feel like I am in complete chaos if everything around me isn’t just so, my blog is fell into a disaster state in the last year. I don’t know what happened but… ah. I need this challenge, and I am so pumped for it, and I am going to do all the things 🙂
Phew. There. So there they are. It might seem like I am throwing caution to the wind and joining too much but I can’t NOT participate in challenges, they are just something that I love, so I have given myself achievable goals but still ones that push me.
What are you participating in this year? Link up!
