Reading Challenges for 2017

I'm putting some big girl pants on and going to participate on some Reading Challenges this year, I read lots of books already and I'm usually all over the place.  But this year I want to really cut down my TBR, finish series and want to really just participate on some of the cool Reading Challenges that some amazing bloggers do.  I have picked six of them and I am SO WICKED SUPER EXCITED about it already, now let's just hope I keep up with all of them.

Another new thing that I started this year was a Bullet Journal and I really think that this new friend is going to really help me out with these challenges and keeping everything organized.

Let's take a look at all the challenges?

First up:


Challenge: Flights of Fantasy


Goal: No minimum of books to read, the reader is encouraged to set their own goal for how many fantasy books to read in 2017

Official Hashtag: #flightsoffantasy

More Info: Please click on the hosts names for more information on the challenge.  The full schedule for the year has been posted on their blogs, there will be giveaways and lots of more info.

My GOAL: 25-I'm not going to go too crazy, 25 seems a reasonable number, right? 2016 was the year that I really got into fantasy and this year I really want to read more and more of it.

Some books on my list already:

*Throne of Glass Series (it's about time to start this series and hopefully I will start and finish it)
*The Invasion of the Tearling (second book of The Queen of the Tearling and I'm hoping to get to the 3rd one too)
*Truthwitch (Yeah I've heard lots great things about this one and don't know why I haven't pick it up yet)
*The Grisha Trilogy (another trilogy that I have no clue why I haven't read it yet)
*Six of Crows (I have been wanting to start this one but will not do it until I read the one above first)
*Frost Like Night (about time to finish this one)
*The Magician's Trilogy (I watched The Magician's show and I'm hooked and need the books)

My GOAL: 12 books-1 each month

Diverse Books:

I'm actually referring back to the list that the hosts have on their blogs, every month for each categories they have a number of books to choose from and because this is the first time that I'm participating of a challenge like this I need all the help that I can get and the list is perfect.  Why?  Because I was reading the list and there are books there that I already owe or that I have been meaning to read and I never thought that it would be good for this challenge so...perfect!!!

Guess what? Next...
