My Reading Challenges For 2017


So I'm terrible at completing challenges.....Really terrible.....I'm so terrible that I haven't completed one yet!  But that doesn't stop me from trying!

This year I'm keeping it simple.  I set my Goodreads Reading Challenge goal to 80 books (really I'm aiming for 100, but I'm being realistic), and I'm going to try my made-up challenge again.  So here goes!


1. My 80-Book Challenge
It was the same goal every year.  100 books.  The last couple of years I failed, but it doesn't stop me from trying again.  This year, I'm realistically aiming for 80 books, but if it's a good, I hope to achieve 100.

2. Lisa's Pyramid Challenge
This is one I made up.  I've always been terrible at completing other people's challenges, so I'm going to try and see if I can complete a challenge I created.

There are 12 categories total.  First category only requires one book, second category requires two books, and so on until you reach the 12th category, which requires 12 books.  None of the books can be used in more than one category, and I have exactly one year to finish this challenge (started on 3/15/17).
