Curly Carla’s 2018 Reading Challenges

Welp, I told my self that I wasn’t going to do any reading challenges for 2018 and it turns out, I’m a liar. 🙂 So after a little talk with my blog wife Lenore, I’ve decided to let go of my previous years unfinished challenges and start fresh.

So without further ado…..here are the Reading Challenges I’m participating in for 2018.  For more information on any of the challenges, go to the sign up pages.


The 2018 Finishing the Series Reading Challenge is hosted by Celebrity Readers, ie us!  #FinishingTheSeries2018

There are 3 levels to the challenge:
1-4 Series C-List Series Finisher
5-8 Series B-List Series Finisher
9+ Series A-List Series Finisher

 

My goal is C-List Series Finisher.

  1. Shroud of Lies (Brewer Brothers, #3) by Nancy Straight, Monalisa Design, Linda Brant
  2. Mosaic (Reliquary, #3) by Sarah Fine
  3. Silence: Part Two of Echoes Silence by Angela M. Hudson, Angela M. Hudson

Science Fiction vs Fantasy Bingo 2018 hosted by Curiosity Killed the Bookworm was suggested to me by my blogging partner Lenore!  This challenge is right up my alley as Sci-fi/ Fantasy are my favorite genres to read.  I can’t wait to start this one.

You can choose to do a line, try to do as much as possible in your preferred genre, attack it randomly or go for the full house, it’s really up to you. Some of the squares are geared more to one genre but all are open to interpretation. I’m not participating to win, although there are prizes. You can refer back to the host site for the full rules and regulations.

Goodreads Reading Challenge!

This is probably the easiest and most enjoyable challenge I do.  Pick a number of books you want to finish and aim for that goal. Any genre, any series, any book! My goal is to read 100 books cause my reading has slowed down this last year and I don’t want to put too much pressure on myself.  I will not be counting re-reads but will be counting DNF’s.

That’s all I’m doing this year, I did want to try a banned books/challenged reading challenge but I can’t find a blog that’s hosting so oh well, there’s always banned books week.
