2016 Book Challenges
There are so many (and I mean SO MANY) books I didn’t get the chance to read last year. If you see the state of my tbr pile, you would absolutely lose your mind. Not to mention the number of books I am planning to buy as they are released this year. It is insane. I cannot keep up. And while it is comforting to know I will never run out of books to read, I would like to make some ground on them. Which is why I have decided to participate in a couple of book challenges this year 🙂
The first one is ‘Around the year in 52 books’, which is the one I will be focusing on the most. It will (hopefully) encourage me to read at least one book a week in response to a prompt (although I am already behind oops). The prompts all looked really fun and interesting as well, so it should be a good one.
The other challenge is Popsugar’s 2016 reading challenge, which I’m thinking will just kind of complete itself but also force me to broaden my reading scope a little outside of my comfort zone.
Finally, my goodreads challenge. I have been a little ambitious this year and set it to 60 books, which given my 36 books read last year, is achievable but a high goal. We’ll see how it goes.
2016 Anticipated Releases
- This Is Where It Ends by Marieke Nijkamp
technically, this book has already been released, but it is still a 2016 release so whatever. It sounds incredibly powerful and confronting, and it is something which I am simultaneously dreading but looking forward to delving into.
- The Crown by Kiera Cass
Super excited for this finale to the Selection series. Despite popular opinion, I quite enjoyed Eadlyn as a protagonist, and I can’t wait to see where this final book takes her.
- The Rose and the Dagger by Renne Ahdieh
The Wrath and the Dawn was one of my favourite books of 2015, and as soon as I finished it I searched for the next one. I can’t believe it is so close. It is a beautiful world, a beautiful story, and beautiful characters which break my heart over and over again.
- Heartless by Marissa Meyer
I really enjoy Marissa Meyer’s fairytale retellings, and having loved Fairest in particular, can’t help but be excited to see where she takes the story of the Queen of Hearts.
- A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J Maas*
- Nowhere But Here by Katie McGarry*
- All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han
- Winter by Marissa Meyer*
- The Assassins Blade by Sarah J Maas
- Point of Retreat by Colleen Hoover*
*books for the Around the year in 52 books challenge
all in all, looking forward to a great year of books for 2016, and I hope you enjoy it as much as I will!
