📚 2018 Reading Challenges ~ What am I reading in 2018?


Hello fellow book lovers!

It has been two years since I've participated in any reading challenges. I am breaking that streak for 2018!

I have noticed that in the past year, my blog is lacking in reviews. I began this blog with the hope of putting my reviews out there for fellow book-lovers, and while I still post reviews, I find myself strapped for time (or just lazy, let's be real) and at the point where I would rather post for a blog tour or spotlight a book with a giveaway. These things will not be going away, but for 2018 I plan to really get back into the reviewing groove. Instead of just one review  month, I will post at least two a week. The following challenges are to help me with my blogging goals for the new year. :)

2018 Beat the Backlist Challenge
HOSTED BY NOVELKNIGHT
SIGN-UP HERE

This challenge is similar to the first, except this one is targeted toward your TBR list overall, not just review copies. I am ready to tackle some books I have been meaning to read for years! To qualify, books for this challenge must be published prior to 2018. :)

In addition to getting through your TBR pile, this challenge inserts you into a team and each time you read/review a book you finished, you get points for your team! This can lead to you or someone on your team winning a book at the end of each month. Neat, right?

TBR Pile books I plan to read for 2018:

01.) The Sun Is Also a Star by Nicola YoonReview Coming
02.) Almost Perfect by Brian KatcherReview Coming
03.) Timestorm by Julie Cross
04.) Rage by Julie Anne Peters
05.) The Maze Runner by James Dashner
06.) Everneath by Brodi Ashton
07.) Throne of Glass by Sarah J. MaasReview Coming
08.) Sever by Lauren DeStefano
09.) Dark Triumph by Robin LaFevers
10.) The Sweet Gum Tree by Katherine Allred
11.) Far From You by Tess Sharpe
