New Years Bingo Wrap-Up & 2015 Challenges March Update

2015 Challenges

Bookish Bingo

New Years Edition

Bookish Bingo from Great Imaginations. The first Bingo Card of the year was the New Years Edition, and runs the first Quarter of the year. I was close to finishing my card. I knew I wouldn't get the Forgotten Fridays one, as that's something that Great Imaginations does on their site that I haven't done. I knew the Fae would be hard for me as well, I had a book I just never got around to it. I ended up finishing 22 books. You can view all the books I read on my New Years Bingo Shelf at GoodReads.

Yearly Challenges

Both my 2015 Reading Challenge at GoodReads, and the You Read How Many Books? challenge, I have set my goal to read 200 books this year.

In January I read 31 books, and for February my book count was just at 14! Low for me. I got back to normal for me for March and completed 37 books. My book count for the year is at 82. You can see the books I read in March over in my (to be posted soon) March Reading Log.

The Book Nympho
My only other official (done by a blog elsewhere) year long challenges is the Audiobook Challenge. I've set my goal at the highest level they had ~ Marathoner 50+ ~ and in March, I completed 16 audiobooks, for a total of 38 audiobooks books on the year. As of when I'm writing this, I don't yet have a separate listing of just my audiobooks, something I'll need to do. You can, however, see my GoodReads Audiobooks Read in 2015 shelf on which they are all listed.

I did, however, come up with my own challenge! After I came across the Epic Reads list of 365 Days of YA, I decided to work my way through ALL the books listed and pick out books that I definitely want to read and books that I might read. I had read a handful of the books (21) prior to this year and I started my challenge mid January.

I went through each quarter of the year, as they have it broken down at Epic Reads and I picked out the books that I want to read (40) and the books that I might read (30) for a total of 70 books I have/had some interest in.

In March, I completed 1 book and had 1 DNF. You can see each of my quarters listed below, along with the books I want to read, might read, and have already read. In the link with the set up of the challenge, I requested suggestions on my list, if it be something in my might list that I should read, or something in my want to read that shouldn't be. Let me know!
