  1. oh what fun challenges you have here!! Great number for the Goodreads Challenge, and you know I really like the color this year, the blue is very pretty. I hope you have fun with them this year. I am especially looking forward to your discussions.

    1. I’m a fan of the blue, too!

  2. I really need to read more historical fiction!!

    Great post!

    Happy New Year!!

    1. Thanks! Happy new year!

  3. Looks like some great challenges – good luck!

    1. Thanks, Grace!

  4. Oh, what great challenges! I’m always trying to beat my Goodreads challenge but I need to try more discussion topics but I’m awful with coming up with ideas – so good luck, I can’t wait to see you have in store for 2017! 😁

    1. I’m also pretty bad at coming up with discussion ideas haha.
      Thanks, Kim!

  5. I also set 100 for my reading goal this year! 🙂 And I also suck at updating my reading challenges.. ahaha

    And yay for joining the Historical Romance Reading Challenge 😀

    1. Good luck! Haha, glad I’m not the only one!
      I’m excited for the HR challenge!

  6. Best of luck with your challenges, Cyn. I am terrible at challenges so I only endeavor to do the Goodreads and Audiobook Challenges. Happy 2017 to you.

    1. Thanks, Heidi! I’m usually pretty terrible too, but I thought I’d give it another go this year (:
      Happy New Year!

  7. YAY for a historical romance challenge! I’ll have to check it out after I finish commenting here. 100 books for Goodreads is a good number. 😀

    Good luck with the challenges, Cyn!

    Alyssa @ The Eater of Books!

    1. Yes, definitely check out the HR challenge! Hope you join in the fun too!
      Thanks, Alyssa!

  8. Ooooo, good luck with your reading challenges for this year! I didn’t do too well last year, so I decided to only join the GR challenge this year. I’m hoping to also read 100 books. I hope you rock these challenges! Good luck! 🙂

    1. Thank you, Lisa! That’s what I did last year too, just the GR 🙂 This year I thought I try more again, haha. Good luck with your challenge!

  9. Good luck on your challenges, Cyn! I could probably take a stab at the historical romance challenge, but I have another focus this year: NetGalley.

    1. Thanks, Charlie! Netgalley is a good challenge! Good luck!

    1. Thanks, Anna!

  10. Happy new year Cyn! I know you’ll kick ass at that historical romance challenge 🙂

    1. Happy New Year, Jeann!
      Haha, thanks! 🙂

  11. Good luck with these! The discussion challenge sounds really fun!

    1. Thanks, Lori! The hardest part is definitely coming up with discussion ideas, haha.

  12. Good luck! I don’t know if I can manage creating too many discussion posts this year, but goal is to encourage conversation by trying to comment more, and being less of a silent reader!

    1. Thanks, Jane!
      I’m not super great at posting a ton of discussion post either, but it’s the thought that counts right? And yes, definitely a great way to mingle around the blogosphere!

  13. Good luck with your reading challenges!
    Krystianna @ Downright Dystopian

    1. Thanks, Krystianna!

  14. What is this historical romance reading challenge? I could SO get into that! I only do the Goodreads challenge normally, because I don’t want to force myself to read anything in particular… But I’m ALWAYS in the mood for historical romance!

    Good luck with your challenges!

    1. Yes, do it, Rachel! I only did GR last year but I thought I try expanding a bit this year haha.
      It’s always time for historical romance!

  15. I am just getting back into blogging so challenges will have to wait until next year for me. Yours look like fun, though!
