2016 Reading Challenges Update Month 3

2016 reading challenge

This post is a way to keep motivated and stay on top of my 2016 reading challenges. You can see my original post and goals here. 

The first challenge is always my Goodreads Challenge.

You can follow my progress here: https://www.goodreads.com/challenges/3890-2016-reading-challenge

This year I set the goal to be 150 books. My Goodreads Challenge is off to a good start with 46 of 150 books.

My second challenge is the Finishing the series challenge.


I’m shooting for Level 4 in this challenge – which is finishing 7 or more series by December 31, 2016. I would love to finish one a month, but that is probably too many to commit to.


These books have been sitting on my TBR list for a while and some before they were even published. I don’t really like to commit to reading something so far in advance, but I really want to finish some of these. I have one series for each month but time will tell if I am able to complete all of these.

  • Welcome to the Point series by Jay Crownover (2 books)
  • On Dublin Street series by Samantha Young (3 books and a novella)
  • After series by Anna Todd (4 books)  I’m dropping this one from the list….
  • Neon Dreams series by Caisey Quinn (1 book)
  • Wait for You series by J. Lynn/Jennifer Armentrout (3 books, a novella and one new release)
  • #Hashtag series by Cambria Hebert (2 books and a novella)
  • Castle series by Richard Castle (2 books and one new release) I’m dropping this from the list. Not super excited about it anymore.
  • Fall and Rise series by Chelsea M Cameron (1 book)
  • Frigid by J. Lynn/Jennifer Armentrout (1 book)
  • Monsters in the Dark by Pepper Winters (2 books)
  • Rusk University series (1 book and a possible new release)
  • Surrender Saga by Chelsea M. Cameron (3 books)
  • The Holly Woods Files by Emma Hart (4 books and a new release) (New Addition)
  • Love/Hate series by Isabelle RIchards (3 books) (New Addition)

So as I assumed when I undertook this challenge my lists would change and evolve as my fickle reading tastes do. I have now dropped 2 series from the challenge, but I have added 2 in their place. This month I read the first two books in the Love/Hate series by Isabelle Richards. I have been wanting to read this since the first book came out and was finally able start crossing it off my list.

March’s Series read is:

Hate to Love You by Isabelle RIchards

(3 books total in series. 3 currently released; 2 read) 


5 Stars

Love to Hate You by Isabelle RIchards

5 Stars

The Third Challenge is to clear out some of my current TBR list.


I want to read 2 books from my TBR pile each month. I would love to do more, but any more than that would just be a bonus.That’d be 24 books off my massive TBR and that’s better than nothing, right?


I read 1 book in March toward my challenge. Hate to Love You by Isabelle Richards.


P.S. I think I am going to add a fourth challenge by trying to read a book written by an author I have never read before. I am shooting for one a month. I plan to review each one and will include it in my recaps. 

This month that book was I,Porn by Zara Cox.


My name is Quinn Blackwood:

By day, I’m a billionaire CEO. Rich. Entitled.By night, I’m the exclusive porn star only known as Q.Why? Because I love women. If I believed in an almighty being, I’d thank him for creating them. They’re by far his most perfect creation… especially when I’m fucking one of them.

Oh, did I mention I’m an asshole? Fuck yeah. According to my shrink, I’m one twisted motherfucker. And that’s just the way I like it. Until she walks into my life…

My name is Elyse Gilbert, nicknamed ‘Lucky’ because according to my dad, I’m the unluckiest person alive, and I’ll die the same way I came into the world: naked, screaming, and dirt poor.

Yeah, my life is a twisted, seething mess. But that life changed the day I met HIM.He made me forget the cameras.He made me forget I was doing this for the money.He made me forget my shame.He made me forget everything. I was consumed by him. Only him.

But now my past has caught up with me.
