2016 Reading Challenges Wrap-Up

I’m dubbing today as Reading Challenge Day because I have this post and a 2017 Reading Challenges post coming up later on this afternoon. I’m so cool, right?!

Anyways, I’m just gonna say that 2016 wasn’t a complete success when it came to reading challenges, but it wasn’t a complete bomb either. Here’s hoping that 2017 is even better!

2016 POPSUGAR Reading Challenge

This is a challenge that I wasn’t consciously doing. It was just a fun challenge to see if any of the books that I read fit the different criteria. I plan to get a little bit more serious about this year’s challenge but we’ll just see how that goes.

You can read my original post for this challenge HERE. Click on book title to read my review for it.

New Update:

  • A book with a blue cover – How to Hang a Witch by Adriana Mather
  • The first book you see in a bookstore – Fantastic Beast and Where to Find Them: The Original Screenplay by J.K. Rowling (no review)
  • A book that takes place on an island – Three Dark Crowns (Three Dark Crowns, #1) by Kendare Blake

Previous Update:

Total: 21/40

I’d say over 50% without even trying is pretty good. But I’m probably just trying to make myself feel better…

2016 Goodreads Reading Challenge Update

I’m going to blame this one on my summer reading slump. However, I do feel that I finished really strongly and ended up doing so much better than I what I thought I would do. Here’s hoping that 2017 is even better!

Previous Total: 57/100

Final Total: 76/100

I hope everyone had a fantastic reading year and were able to complete all of your challenges!
