2016 Challenges





This is a list of most of the challenges I am signing up for in 2016. The 2016 Bookish Resolutions and 2016 Reading Assignment Challenge have their own sign up posts and I will be
diligently updating them. I hope to do that with all of my challenges, but just in case, I created this list.

This is hosted by Julie at Smiling Shelves and you can signup at this link. I almost met my goal last time and I am going to stick to my same goal, the L'Engle level. I hope to read this year's winners and some older titles.
1. The Blue Sword by Robin McKinley



This is hosted by Jen at The Introverted Reader and you can signup at this link. This is a new challenge for me and I am going to try for Dilettante level. I need to read more nonfiction and we only have a couple of nonfiction books for book club this year, so I hope this reading challenge will help me to read more nonfiction books.
1. The Girls from Ames by Jeffrey Zaslow




This is hosted by Bev at My Reader's Block and you can sign up at this link. This is my third time participating and I love this challenge. It allows me to reread my favorites and to compete in a challenge, so what's not to love! I am going to aim for Feeling Nostalgic which is 8 books, but I hope to read 10 again this year.
1. Little House in the Big Woods by Laura Ingalls Wilder



This is hosted by Mel @ Daily Prophecy and you can sign up at this link. I have missed my goal the past two years, but with Mel expanding the rules a bit, I am going to challenge myself to the same book level with the new name of Goose Girl! I hope to read at least the 5, but really hope to read 7 retellings this year!
