Hey guys! This year I’m gonna keep my 2017 Reading Challenges quite simple, and I’m doing the Goodreads one, because obviously I am, and I’ve set my goal to 150 books. Last year I started setting it at 75 and ended up with the goal of 175 (and ended up reading 218), so I think 150 is a good number. And look at that… I’m already ahead of schedule, eheh.
My REAL challenge however is gonna be the 2017 New Adult Reading Challenge, created by Cátia @The Girl Who Read Too Much.
This is perfect for me, because I’ve been reading loads of NA books lately, so I’m excited for this one :D.
The challenge has two different directions and I plan to tackle both. The first one is by the number of NA books read and there are a few categories:
- NA Newbie – 6 books
- NA Initiate – 12 books
- NA Intermediate – 24 books
- NA Advanced – 36 books
- NA Expert – 50 books
- NA Queen/King (special category) – 100 books
Obviously I’m aiming for the NA Queen category (or at least the NA Expert).
The second thing within this challenge is a Reading Bingo and I’m so excited for this one!
1. Book set in college
2. Hyped Book
3. Debut Novel
4. 2017 Release
5. New Adult best seller
6. Book about friendship
7. Book with music or art
8. Book out of your comfort zone
9. Book based on its cover
10. Diverse novel
11. A LGBT novel or with a LGBT characters
12. New to you author
13. Book you can finish in one day
14. Start a series
15. Book that makes you laugh
16. Book set in the summer
17. Book you knew nothing about
18. A re-read
19. Book about a road trip
20. Book recommendation
21. One word title
22. Book about sports
23. Book on the bottom of your TBR
24. Book with only male POV
I have a few suggestions for books for the bingo, and I’ll be doing a post soon with those suggestion… would that be something you would be interested in?

Those challenges seem super fun !! I’m just doing goodreads again this year and my goal is set at 60 books so good luck to the both of us 😀
best of luck to you. 60 books is an amazing goal!
Thank you ❤
For now, I’m only doing the Goodreads reading challenge. I set it to 200 books- last year I set it at 100 and ended up reading 259, so I think it’s a pretty realistic goal. And I’ve already read 5 books!😉 Good luck on both of your challenges!☺️
Thank you and wow, 200 is amazing, best of luck with that number 😀
Thanks so much!😊
I’m doing the Goodreads reading challenge, which I’ve done every year since 2014.. my goal is 100 books, as usual. 🙂 And then I’m also doing Book Riot’s #ReadHarder challenge and Around the Year in 52 Books! I’d love to try a reading bingo someday, though!
Good luck completing your challenges! 🙂
good luck with yours! 3 challenges… WOW
This sounds like so much fun! I kind of want to do all of this!
P.S. Meghan Quinn has The Mother Road for a road trip book!
did you like it? is it NA? I’m actually reading one right now for the road trip slot, More Than Distance
I haven’t read it yet, but I have it. I’m pretty sure it’s NA. I think it’s college kids.
oh, good. I wasn’t sure because the models on the cover look past college age… but one never knows
I’m also doing the New Adult Reading Challenge! Though I can say I’m currently behind on my Goodreads challenge already b/c I haven’t finished a book in 2017 yet! Well, technically I have, but they are both beta reads so I haven’t written reviews for them and thus they haven’t counted yet. Good luck in both your challenges!!
so happy to see you’re doing the NA reading challenge too. You’ll get back on track with the goodreads one soon though 😉
I’m doing Goodreads as well! The challenge involving bingo looks like a blast. Good luck with reaching your goals 😀
thank you, for you too 😉
Very cool – what do you like about new adult? Is there a particular reason you have been reading it lately? I have heard mixed things about this genre, and assumed it depended on the skill of the authors doing the writing, but would love to hear what specific things draw you to this genre, etc.
The book bingo thing is awesome, and sounds like a fun way to begin reading new adult! I would be up for it, and look forward to reading your future post about it!
I guess what I like most about the New Adult genre is the age thing, and that most of the time the main characters are still defining their lives and what they want to do with them, you know? it is mostly contemporary romances, so if you like contemp. romances, you could give NA a try
