2015 Reading Challenge

It's been a while since my last post! Anyway, I want something new for 2015, and I realized that I haven't done any reading challenges, so I've decided to do a handful of them for the year 2015, even though I have a hunch that it will be a busy year for me. But I know I'll be able to find a way around my soon-to-be busy schedule.

So after doing some research, I've managed to compiled the following reading challenges, and I'm sooo pumped up! 

The Re-read Challenge - Belle of the Literati and So Obsessed With

I love re-reading books! Moreover, I love re-reading series! Basically, the purpose of this challenge is to re-read books! The rule is quite simple. After re-reading a novel, you just have to answer the following questions on your blog post:

WHEN I First Read
WHAT I Remember
WHY I Wanted to Re-Read 
HOW I Felt After Re-Reading

And that's it!
I actually have no idea which books I want to re-read, but I'm hoping that I would be able to read at least two novels per month, so by the end of the year, I would be able to re-read at least twenty-four novels! 

For more details about this challenge, you can visit the sign-up posts by Belle of the Literati here and So Obsessed With here.

2015 Outdo Yourself Reading Challenge - The Book Vixen

So far, I've read fifty-five books this year. There's a few days left before 2014 ends, so I may be able to squeeze in a lot more reading. For next year, I want to read more books, may it be fiction or nonfiction. I'm hoping that I will outdo myself this year. It will be a quite an achievement fosho, considering that 2015 is a very busy year for a third year college student like me.
