105 & Popsugar Reading Challenge 2015

Hosted here

January 1, 2015 – December 31, 2015

The 105 Challenge is a goal where I’m going to try and read 105 books during 2015. I got the number 105 by taking 12 (months in a year) and adding 11 + 10 + 9 + 8…+ 1.

To make things interesting, I didn’t want my challenge JUST to be trying to read 105 books. Instead, I am going to try to read…

12. 2015 new releases
11. YA Contemporary
10. E-ARC’s from NG + EW
9. Indie books
8. Debut books (from any year)
7. 2014 new releases
6. Self Help/Motivational/Business books
5. Sequels
4. Books that were recommended to me (that I had never heard of before)
3. New Adult books
2. Books with rainbow covers
1. Re-read a book

Now here’s the fun part. I want YOU to join me in the challenge to read 105 books, and create a list just like mine where you pick 12 different categories and try to read 1 or 2 or 3…etc of each category.
One incentive for joining the challenge will be a rafflecopter where you can get points for completing each group of books! Rafflecopter will be picking a winner each month who will receive a special prize for completing part of the challenge.
The one requirement that I have for joining this challenge is that whenever you FINISH reading an entire category, please make a GR shelf for it and send me the link through rafflecopter!

So what are you waiting for?

Join me in my quest to read 105 books!
