HIATUS

I have to say that due to some changes in my life recently, I might not post for a long while. I have not read in some time and adulting life is catching up with me now that I graduated. I promise that soon I will find a pace and start to blog again. For now, everything that is being posted was scheduled from a long time ago. See ya!

Book Challenges 2016

And 2015 finally end! So that means a new year, new reading challenges. 2016 here I come. Last year I went a little crazy with all the challenges because I sort of wanted to read 300 books, but I barely made it alive and not many challenges were finished. This year, I might be crazy again. I'm entering in whichever challenge I find interesting, but reaching the minimum reads, you get me? You'll get me. The list of books in some challenges are maybes.
Past challenges: 2013, 2014 & 2015
Anyways, the challenges are:
Dystopia Reading Challenge
Third year in a row, I'm totally in! This challenge is basically what the title says... read books based in a dystopian world. Hosted by Cornerfolds & My Soul Called Life.
Goal: Recruit - read and review 1 to 5 books FAILED

TBR Pile Reading Challenge
We all have those books. We buy them, win them, they're gifted to us. Then we put them up on a bookshelf and there they stay, collecting dust, waiting for he time when we'll finally decide to pick them up. I join this challenge to dust off my TBR pile and read all the books I said that I would read if I had a chance. Guidelines here. Hosted by Evie-Bookish.

Alphabet Soup Reading Challenge
The Alphabet Soup Challenge means that by December 31, 2016 your bowls must be full of one book for each letter of the Alphabet. It’s an alphabet challenge!!! The challenge is to read one book that has a title starting with every letter of the alphabet. How I plan to do it: Make a list on your blog from A-Z. Throughout the year, as you go along, add the books you are reading to the list. Towards the end of the year, you can check and see which letters you are missing and find books to fit. Hosted by Escape with Dollycas.
