2017 Challenges Sign-Up Posts

Posted December 21, 2016 by Kathy in Reading Challenge / 6 Comments

It’s hard to believe that 2017 is almost here. I failed some of my reading challenges for 2016 because of work so this time I am cutting back on the number of challenges I am signing up for. This post will serve as my sign-up for all the challenges I plan on participating. I will be tracking my progress on my 2017 Challenges page and with the UBB Reading Challenge Plugin.

The 2017 New Release Challenge is hosted by Lexie at Unconventional Book Views and Stormi at Books, Movies, Reviews! Oh My! . This is a year-long challenge to read books released in 2017.  You can find all the details here.

My goal is “New Release Pro” – 31 to 60 books

I did really good in this challenge for 2016 and went beyond the 30 books. I can’t wait to see how many I read for 2017.


The 2017 Blogger Shame Review Challenge is hosted by Herding Cats & Burning Soup. This challenge focuses on tackling all the review books you have had that is over 4 months past due. You can find all the details here.

I failed this challenge for 2016 but I determined to meet my goal next year! My goal is to read 20 ARCs.

The 2017 Audiobook Challenge is hosted by Hot Listens. This is a year-long challenge to listen to audiobooks.  You can find all the details here.

I love audiobooks! I have a long list of audiobooks I purchased on Audible.com, on the waiting list at my library, and have received for review from Tantor Audio. I’m ready for this challenge!

My goal is “Binge Listener” (Why read when someone can do it for you) – 20 to 30 audiobooks

The 2017 Book Blog Discussion Challenge is hosted by Feed Your Fiction Addiction and It Stars At Midnight. This challenge is to post more discussions on our blogs and to talk with other bloggers. You can find all the details here.

My goal is “Discussion Dabbler” – 1 to 10 discussion posts this year

      Thank you Melanie for hosting the challenge again! I have a list of audiobooks I can’t wait to listen to.

  1. Good luck on your challenges! I might be do them inadvertently, as I do enjoy audio books and would very much want to post more discussion pieces. I am currently pursuing a Harry Potter challenge that extends into 2017, as it follows the school year. I really never thought of juggling more than one at the time, I think I’d forget one haha

      I signed up for too many challenges in 2016 so now I’ve learned my lesson. The Harry Potter challenge sounds like fun and I want to listen to the series on audio in 2017. I hope you have a great 2017! Thank you for stopping by!
