2017 Reading Challenges & Goals







This is a challenge hosted by Alexa@ AlexaLovesBooks and Rachel@Hello,Chelly. The challenge is to read as much fantasy books as you can throughout the year. There’ll be some giveaways and you can earn a point by reading some books listed on the above links. For more information, please check one of the above links.



This year I’ve decided to cut down on the contemporaries and focus on fantasy books instead. There are some contemporary books that I’m excited for and will be reading, but for the most part, I don’t feel like reading contemporaries. If I decide to read a contemporary novel, it’d have to be a diverse one.

I’ve already read The fellowship of the ring and I’ve read the first books of The Lies of Locke Lamora. Aside from that, I have a lot to read in the adult fantasy section.



There are so many great books out there that I haven’t read and this year, I’ll be catching up with some of the more hyped ones.

If you’ve seen my NaNoWriMo post, you know that I have an idea for a fantasy novel that has brewing for quite a while. I had been so excited to write 50,000 words of it during November but ultimately ended up writing only 10K. I need to develop discipline when it comes to writing and that’s why I plan to:

checkbook-clipart-check-mdRead 1 book each month for research on novel

checkbook-clipart-check-mdWrite 4 blog posts per week
