I always participate in the Goodread's challenge because it is an easy way for me to keep track of all the books I read. I've set my goal at 85 books for the second year in a row. I'm staying at the current level because I find myself shying way from chunkier reads (I'm so goal-oriented. Le Sigh.) So in an effort to reduce the pressure and allow myself to read some of the books on my TBR, I'm going to keep the status quo.
2. Witches and Witchcraft Reading Challenge hosted by Melissa's Eclectic Bookshelf
Level: Initiate (5 books)
The rules are simply to read a full length book that includes a witch/warlock as a main character or has one that includes witchcraft elements. There are prizes I wanted to sign up for this challenge last year but it simply didn't make the cut because I didn't have books in mind. I still don't have books in mind. All recommendations for good reads that would fit this challenge are much appreciated!
3. Diversity on the Shelf hosted by My Little Pocketbooks.
Level: 2nd Shelf (12 books)
The goal of this challenge is add diversity to your bookshelf which I definitely need to do. Any books with a person of color as the main character or as the author will count. There are prizes!
4. Lucky No. 14 Reading Challenge hosted by Books to Share

This challenge is a cute one that requires the completion of a book from each of the 14 categories.
The categories are:
1.) Visit the Country
2.) Cover Lust
3.) Blame it on Bloggers
4.) Bargain All the Way
5.) (Not so) Fresh From the Oven
6.) First Letter's Rule
7.) Once Upon a Time

9.) Favorite Author
10.) It's Been There Forever
11.) Movies vs Books
12.) Freebies Time
13.) Not My Cup of Tea
14.) Walking Down Memory Lane
I love the sound of this one because any genre can fall into each of these categories and it just seems cute. I hope someone joins me with this one. Oh and there are prizes!
5. TBR Pile Reading Challenge hosted by Bookish.
This should be a familiar one as I've participated for the past couple of years. This one simply requires the reading of books that have been sitting on our own bookshelves for sometime. I participate in this challenge each year because I wouldn't read books from my bookshelf otherwise. I only read 10 books from my own bookshelf in all of 2013 (to fulfill this challenge). I'm not sure how this happens but in the spirit of being a good girl, I'm signing up once again.
Plus, this one is always my enjoyable reads even though I have to push myself to complete it.
Welp, that's it!
