2015 Reading Challenge: Wrap Up

Earlier this year, I decided to participate the Popsugar 2015 Reading Challenge. This is helpful to me as I explore several books, even the ones that are not really my cup of tea.

As for my Goodreads Reading Challenge; I managed to read 182 books this year and completed my challenge of 150 books. I’m so happy because I didn’t expect to read this much and it’s been an amazing reading year for me. I discovered great books and explored different genres this year.

Most of the books I’ve read were contemporary romance novels and I didn’t expect to enjoy  mystery/ thriller books.

Despite of not completing my Popsugar reading challenge, I’m still happy with the ones I’ve completed. I’m gonna join the 2016 Popsugar reading challenge (which is more challenging). As for the Goodreads Challenge, I’m going to set it with 50 books. (I’m still guessing what will be the color of the widget. I’m guessing it will be Royal Blue or Yellow) 🙂

Have you joined any reading challenge this year? Are you planning to join another reading challenge? let me know on the comments and share your thoughts.

Have an amazing holiday, lovely bookworms!

  1. Congratulations on reading tons of books! Popsugar does look challenging, I won’t be able to complete that xD I’m doing several challenges next year too (Flights of Fantasy, Discussions, Netgalley, and the 365 comments) so it’s going to be fun. Good luck with yours next year 🙂

  2. Congrats Bea! 🙂 You did a great job! I tried also doing the Popsugar challenge but I wasn’t able to complete that; maybe 2 or 3 categories that I’ve read. 😛
