Challenges I’m Hoping to Actually Get Close to Completing in 2017

January 5, 2017 Challenge 2

New Year, New Challenges!

2016 started really well for me, but what with the end of the year taking a massive dive personally I ended up having to take a break from the blog and my reading goals suffered massively. Hopefully this year will be more positive, but even so I have been a bit more careful with the amount of challenges I have chosen for myself this year and also the goals I have set.


I actually only missed out on my goal last year b a couple of books, so I’m keeping the same goal and hoping to read 50 books in total in 2017.

Keep up with my progress here.



After months of planning and prep I finally announced my very own bookish challenge: Bookopoly! Make you way around the board completing both the reading challenges and the bookish activities (which includes a library selfie!)

Real Book Challenge

It’s scary how digital the worlds has become. I love physical books but I often find that it’s cheaper and more convenient just to buy the eBook, plus the majority of ARCs that I get are also eBooks. So this year I pledge to read at least 15 real/physical books! I’m so excited for all the book sniffing that will entale.


Debut Author Challenge

That Artsy Reader Girl

I’ve taken part in this challenge every single year since I started blogging and I find it a great way to discover new authors each year. This year I am hoping to read at least 12 debuts, but from the amount of amazing debuts being released this year it will probably end up being a lot more!

Discussion Challenge

I took part in this challenge last year and up until the end of the year was very much on track. I’ve chosen the same goal again, to post 12 discussion posts in 2017, at least one per month, and I can’t wait to get chatting with everyone again about all the bookish stuff!

Around the World Challenge

I’ve been working on the ‘Around the World’ Challenge for quite a while now. My main problem is that I keep forgetting to write down the books that I have read for it so I have actually probably read more than I think. This year I’m hoping to read at least 5 more books from places around the world!

Check out this challenge on my page.

Are you doing any of the same as me? Any recommendations for any of these challenges?
