2016 Pick Your Genre Reading Challenge

Wow! My first year-long reading challenge! Sweet! Take a look!

2016 pick your genre reading challenge

This is a year-long reading challenge, hosted by Herding Cats & Burning Soup. It starts on January 1, 2016 and ends December 31, 2016. You can find the sign up post here. Just make sure to use the linky once your sign up post is created. Once you have reviews up for these books, make sure you use the linky as well to post them.


** Any book over 80ish pages (please no short stories)
** Books MUST be read in 2016
** All book formats count!
** Re-read & Challenge cross overs count! (This one I’m so excited about since I am doing the Goodreads Challenge (for positive) and probably a couple others, I think…)

Anyone can join, you don’t have to be a blogger. Just use Goodreads to keep track.

More details to come.

Each reader will choose their own genre reading challenge. From my understanding, you can pick which one you want and just read. There are a few different levels (shown below). I think I am going to pick two genres. So that means: two challenges, two levels, and many books!


Level 1 (Sunbathing): 6 books
Level 2 (Dipping the Toes): 12 books
Level 3 (Wading In): 25 books
Levelย 4 (Going for a Swim): 50 books
Levelย 5 (Diving In): 75 books
Levelย 6 (Cannon ball! ALL in!): 75+ books

I am proposing to pick the Contemporary Romance and the Erotica genres.
From the Contemporary Romance, I’m thinking my level will be Level 3 – Wading in – at 25 books.
For the Erotica, my level will be Level 1 – Sunbathing – at 6 books.
Levels are subject to change as I get on through the year. I will update my challenge every three months to note of the progress I’ve made. You can also keep up with me at Goodreads and check my progress there. Wish me luck!
Will you join me?
What kind of challenges will you guys do as we move into 2016?

      Nice! I’ve been doing the Goodreads challenge for a couple years. I love how it tells you if you’re behind or how many books you’re ahead.

      1. It sounds like a great way to keep track of reading ๐Ÿ™‚ I tried keeping track on paper this year but I read so much that I lost track

        1. Kendra Kendra says:

          Goodreads is definitely great for that! My mother-in-law does that, but now she only does it to keep track of what she wants to read. She uses Goodreads to keep track of what she has read. ๐Ÿ™‚

          1. Goodreads sounds more effective than paper ๐Ÿ™‚ Your mother-in-law is one smart lady ๐Ÿ™‚
