Sophia Rose’s 2016 Reading Challenges!

Alright, so as usual I couldn’t resist the reading challenges. I am excited by a new year full of books and picking ones to make my challenge numbers. Some challenges I have set high goals from the start and others I set a more moderate challenge level, but will hopefully move up through the ranks.

Here’s what I’ve got:


Delighted Reader’s Books N Tunes: Level 3 Raging Rocker 50 books


Delighted Reader’s Bad Boys of Romance: Level 3 Taking the Bad Boy to the Altar 15+ books

These for sure and maybe a couple more. Yes, I’m addicted. J I’ve set up dedicated shelves on GoodReads and will be updating my monthly/quarterly numbers as part of The Monthly Report feature.

Are you doing reading challenges this year? Good Luck to all challengers!

The following two tabs change content below.
I was born and raised near Sacramento, CA. I have read since I was four years old and developed tastes that run the gamut of literature. I went away to college and have a degree in education, a certificate in family history research, and a certificate in social work. I worked for a non-profit agency with low income families for 20 years which included being responsible for the children’s library and promoting/teaching adult literacy. I have lived in Southeast Michigan for the last 18 years and I am currently a book addicted homemaker with a cat and husband who keep me grounded. Recently, I made it a challenge to review each book that I have read as a favor to author friends who said reviews are important. I have done reviews for Good Reads, Amazon, eBay, and Smashwords, but mostly at Goodreads and Amazon.
  • I hope you enjoy all those challenges.

    • I am sure to, Melanie. I am so addicted to challenges.

  • Debbie Haupt

    Wow, I think you need to double the days in the year! 😉
    Good luck Sophia Rose!

    • LOL! I am careful to sign up for challenges that let me use a book from another challenge, Debbie. But extra reading days would be a dream come true.

  • Good luck with these Sophia!! These all look fantastic and I love participating in reading challenges…..although it was really difficult to choose from such a big pool of them.

    • Thanks, Renee! I struggle to restrain myself when it comes to the challenges b/c there really are a lot of good ones.

  • I signed up for a bunch of reading challenges too. I should have signed up for An Oldie but a Goodie. I might still. I’m not sure.

    I love the Audiobook Challenge. Audiobooks are the best! Good luck!

    • Oh, yes, I look forward to the challenge of Oldie but a Goodie. I wanted to sign up for her Sci-Fi and Paranormal ones, too, but held back since I already had so many. I am slowly listening to more and more audio books. It is fun especially when the narrator really matches up with the voice I picture for the characters.

  • vvb reads

    • Thanks! I do look forward to my challenges. 🙂

  • You blow me away, Sophia! Have fun with this 🙂

    • Oh, I plan on it, Lisa. LOL! Challenges are my reading crack.

  • oh man…good luck Sophia! You have a lot of challenges to get thru this year 😀

    • LOL! I’m addicted. What can I say. Haha! I’ll definitely add your Diversity Challenge when it goes up. 🙂

      • I can’t talk really, I’m just as bad, lols. hopefully we will have it up this week

  • Whew Sophia! Look at you. They look great. Hope you have fun with them all 😀

    • They really help me focus my efforts a bit since I’m a mood reader and that can take me all over the place. 🙂

    Good luck with your challenges Sophia! Hope I can take part in some of them next year!

    • Thanks, Loren! I think it’s a fun way to get through the books on the shelf and the new ones, too.
