2015 Reading Challenges

I guess it's the year of challenges for me! I've never really participated in reading challenges (except for the one on Goodreads) but this year I'm trying to complete 4 different challenges! I will also use this page to keep track of the books I've read for each challenge and link them to my reviews. :)


The TBR Jar Challenge

The original challenge was created by Kat from Katytastic on Youtube, I just changed some of the challenges to make them more interesting for me and my reading preferences. I really like about this that you can choose for yourself which book you want to read to complete the task!

  • Read a book with 500+ pages - An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir
  • Re-read a book you love -
  • Read a 2015 debut novel - Shutter by Courtney Alameda
  • Read a book that someone else picks for you - The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken
  • Read a book you gave up on/never finished - The Asylum (Stefan's Diaries #5) by Lisa J. Smith
  • Read a classic novel -
  • Read the second book in a series -
  • Read a book by a new-to-you author - Making Faces by Amy Harmon
  • Read a book with a one-word-title -
  • Read a book with a name in its title -
  • Read a book with the color red on its cover - The Elite by Kiera Cass
  • Read/watch a book and its adaptation -

Horror Reading Challenge

I only recently found out about this awesome challenge and just had to sign up for it! Some of you might know that I love horror (movies and books) but I read far too little of that genre. I really hope that'll change now - I'm actually pretty excited and already made a list of books that I want to read!
Challenge is hosted by the lovely Tracy @ Cornerfolds 

Challenge Levels:
  • 1-5 horror books: Running Scared
  • 6-10 horror books: Brave Reader
  • 11-15 horror books: Fearless
  • 16+ horror books: Horror Hound

I hope I can complete Running Scared but Brave Reader would be even better ... we'll see!

1. Shutter by Courtney Alameda
2. Say Her Name by James Dawson
3. Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake

5.

The "Yvonne and Melissa" Challenge

This challenge is based on the April and Britney Challenge - some of you might know the booktuber April (Aprilius Maximus) and her friend Britney. They created a challenge where they recommend a certain amount of books to each other for the year. That's what Melissa (In A Bookish World) and I did! We settled for 10 books - one each month - because we started in March.


March - Ignite by Lily Paradis
April - Crush by Lacey Weatherford
May - /
June - Making Faces by Amy Harmon
July -
