All Of My 2018 Reading & Blogging Challenges

It’s a new year which means its time to sign up for ALL the 2018 challenges. So far I have signed up for five (yes, FIVE). God alone knows if I can even complete one of these. But I will try! Since there is a lot to keep track of, I have decided to compile a list of everything I need to know.

If you are participating in any of these challenges, the books in these lists might be helpful.

      Hahahaha, yes I am. Thank you. I have wanted to read The Raven Cycle series for so long. But I always end up making excuses. This year I won’t.
      I am looking forward to reading all the books. They have been on my TBR for ages.

    HOW ARE YOU GOING TO READ A SERIES EACH MONTH while also doing all the other things?! I’m both impressed and concerned. And mostly intrigued as to how you have the energy to just continue through a series – I need a break after each book in a series. Teach me your secret methods of staying focused on one storyline!

      Honestly, I have no clue. I participated in all these challenged this year so that I could read more than I did last year. And so far I think I am doing a good job.
      There is really no secret to my method :p I don’t like too long of a break between books. I like being completely immersed in one world before I have to move on to the next. Did that make sense?
