To say I’ve signed up for “some” reading challenges would be a bit of an understatement… I’m participating in 7! Five are reading challenges, two are not (I’ll tell you about them below).
What I realized when choosing between them is that I’ll be able to read books that will be qualifying for more than one challenge at a time, which means ALL THE CHALLENGES FOR ME! lol
Ok! I’ll be posting an update round-up post of all challenges the last weekend of each month, so keep an eye out for those. OR! You could check out each challenge from the menu bar! There, all updates will be listed. Let’s get down to it…
Brittany @ The Book Addict’s Guide is going to help us stay on top of things with her challenge. I mean, I’m already doing the challenge just by getting this post together! WIN! Click on the image for more information!

January will be all about the picking challenges, making resolutions, scheduling, forming plans, picking reading/blogging buddies. The first scheduling some posts, which I’ve done, and now selecting and posting about the challenges I’m joining!
I’ve created two things to help me keep tabs of the books I’m reading and the challenges I’m reading them for.
First: Goodreads shelves…
And also: A spreadsheet… (idea courtesy of Kaitlin @ Reading is My Treasure)
I’m hoping this will make it easier for me and it’ll help me avoid missing any.
NOTE: ALL UPDATES FOR THIS CHALLENGE WILL NOW BE AT GONE WITH HER THOUGHTS!
#FitReaders hosted by Geeky Bloggers Book Blog and That’s What I’m Talking About. It’s pretty straight forward. To join you have to commit to be active this year, which I am totally doing since I got a brand new fancy treadmill for Christmas! YAYY! Click on the image for more information on #FitReaders.

My goals for this challenge is spend at least 30 minutes on the treadmill four days of the week, either walking or jogging. Since I’m not keen on posting my weight online, let’s just say I want to lose 30lbs, so we’ll count that down at check-ins, which are weekly for this challenge. Look for those posts on Sundays!
For Roof Beam Reader’s official TBR Pile Challenge the goal is to read at least 12 books from your “to be read” pile within the year. There’s a few TBR Challenges out there but I chose this one because the books have to have been published in 2013 or earlier and I have a TON of those! And just to be safe, you can have two alternates for when a book does not work out! Click on the image for more information!

The Contemporary Romance Reading Challenge is hosted by The Book Vixen and I don’t know why I haven’t done this one before because I read A LOT of contemporary romance! Last year it was my most read genre! It’s pretty straight forward: read as many Contemporary Romance books as you’d like, whether they be young adult, new adult, or adult, M/F, M/M, or F/F. They just have to be Contemporary! No paranormal, historical, time-travel, fantasy, science fiction, or mystery/suspense/thriller. I got this! Click on the image for more information!

And last but not least….
Belle of the Literati and So Obsessed With are hosting The Re-Read Challenge! I wanted to join this one because I always reread books. Maybe not a lot of them, but at least one or two. Click on the image for more information!
