Netgalley Reading Challenge of 2016

  This is a challenge to get your Netgalley ratio back to 80% or above.  Mine it TERRIBLE so I am focusing on challenges this year to help motivate me.  My goal is to read at least to this level:


I honestly want to do more but we shall see.  I need to do more to get my ratio back up.  And that does not include new titles I might want to get!!  

I will list all books here:

Blogger Shame Review Challenge of 2016 

My shame list is quite long right now and I really plan to really start clearing through them this year!  This is for all those review copies we've been given but have not read and/or posted reviews for.  Especially when it has been several months since we got them.  To join this challenge, click the image above.  I fell terribly behind and got into trouble last spring and winter before and requested WAY too many books.  Now I am past due and need to pay up.  

I will list all books I complete right here plus I plan to do quarterly wrap-ups.  Any/all book types count here!
Goal: At LEAST 52 (one per week minimum average)
  1.  Finding Emma by Steena Holmes  
  2. Crimson Spell Vol 3 by Ayano Yamane  
  3. Game by Barry Lyga
  4. Follow the White Rabbit by Kellie Sheridan

Happy Holidays!

Hi everyone!
   I hope everyone is enjoying the holiday season.  Just thought I would stop by, let you know I am still here.  My hand is still recovering and with lots of work hours, it is a very slow recovery.  So typing is very slow and painful still.  I have been joting down lots of ideas for the new year, however!  I have been setting up some challenges, looking to renew a few others, getting books gathered for future giveaways, fun topic ideas (some more varied than that of just books) and lots of books are still being read.  So next month, expect some good stuff.  In the meanwhile, please bear with my sporadic posts a bit longer.
