2015 Debut Authors Challenge

8 Jan

This is my third and final reading challenge for this year. It’s hosted by That artsy reader girl.
If you want to sign up just follow the link.

I personally signed up for this challenge last week but didn’t put up a post. How weird of me, right? Anyway for this one, I’m planning on reading 10 books. It’s probably just going to be my top ten most anticipated.

All my progress will be updated on this main post. Hopefully I’ll succeed at this one. 2015 is looking like it’s going to be a great year 🙂

Contemporary Challenge

2 Jan

So, this is another book reading challenge that I’ve signed up for (Lord help me).
I’m sure a number of you have noticed that I’m a sucker for fantasy and paranormal novels… I just can’t get enough. You’re probably wondering why then would I sign up for this challenge. Well, as one of my resolutions for this year was to be involved in more blogger reading challenges, I came across this awesome one and I knew I just had to join. It will surely help me diversify my reading pool, not to mention take me closer to my “Read a 101 books” goal. I’m so excited.

Anyway, I found The Contemporary Challenge over by The Book Belles blog.
The challenge is simple. You can read any book you want as long as it’s a contemporary novel and it doesn’t necessarily have to be published in 2015. This is a plus for me because I’ve been meaning to get aboard the Colleen Hoover express train for some time now.

I’m aiming for Peony: 11- 15 books.

I’ll be posting my progress as I read books and review them. Do drop by to check them out.

  2. Practice Makes Perfect by Julie James

Fairytale Retelling Challenge

30 Dec

Whether it’s glass slippers, living with beasts or being woken from an enchanted slumber by true love’s first kiss , most of us have a weakness for fairytales. They have after all been with us since before we could even read. They took us into worlds full of magic and endless possibilities. And now that we are all grown up and our reading tastes have matured and advanced, somehow we still find our inner child craving for that fix. To read a story that reminds us of just how enjoyable and magical our childhood was.

To make my inner child happy and also because I’m a reading freak, I’ve decided to join a reading challenge that I saw on The Daily Prophecy.

The challenge runs form January 1st – December 31st.
The goal is to read fairytale retelling novels. There are 6 different levels to aim for.

My goal is Big bad wolf: 10 – 15 books.

I’m so excited about this one. (My first reading challenge and all)


  1. Dorothy Must Die (Dorothy Must Die #1) by Danielle Paige.
  2. Of Beast and Beauty by Stacey Jay
