2016 Challenge Wrap-Up

Posted December 20, 2016 by Kathy in Reading Challenge / 6 Comments

It is hard to believe that 2016 is almost over. This ended up being another stressful year at work so I failed on some of my challenges. I also lost track of when to do check in posts which I plan to be better organized for 2017!

Here is a recap of the year-long challenges I participated in.

I can’t believe I failed this challenge.  I lost track of time and had no interest in reading any of the older ARCs I had.  I’m going to try this challenge again for 2017.

The 2016 Reading Assignment Challenge is from January 1 to December 31, 2016

I started the year off on a good pace by reading one of the assigned books but then I got off track in September.  Work got in the way of my reading time so I fell behind on my reading assignments.  This is the second time I failed in this challenge and because of work I won’t be participating for 2017.

      I failed that challenge again this year but I am happy with how I did with the other challenges. I’m going to skip the HW Challenge for 2017 lol. Thanks Lexxie!

      This was the second year I failed that challenge. I realize I’m more of a mood reader and couldn’t go by a strict list of books. Oh well I tried (again) lol.
