So for 2014 I decided to take it easy and only participate in a few challenges. I guess passing 50% isn't so bad as 2013.
1) I will be doing the Goodreads Reading Challenge this year, but I've decided to put my goal at 52 - one book for each week of the year. Sounds a lot attainable than the 100 I thought I could do last year (I only made it to 71). I figure my life needs more balance and 52 seems just right. The tracker is on my sidebar along with the other challenges I'll be taking part in.
I completed this challenge with 57 books!
2) Around the World in 12 Books via Giraffe Days. This one is going to be awesome! I put my goal at 6 books - Casual Tourist Level, but just might be able to complete the full 12 books if I choose my personal reading carefully.
- ENGLAND - Perfect by Rachel Joyce
- FRANCE - My Wish List by Gregoire Delacourt
- AFGHANISTAN - The Pearl That Broke It's Shell by Nadia Hasimi
- PERU - Chasing the Sun by Natalia Sylvester
3) PASSED! Review Pile Reading Challenge via Rachel @ Fiktshun and Reanna @ Phantasmic Reads! I chose the Journeyman level of 11-20 books.
