105 Challenge!!! ~2015 Reading Challenge~

Posted December 8, 2014 by Nori in Challenges / 69 Comments

As the end of 2014 approaches, itโ€™s a great time to start thinking about your reading goals for 2015! I am personally going to challenge myself to the 105 Challenge- and I invite YOU to join me! You might ask, what is this 105 Challenge of which you speak?

Good question! ๐Ÿ˜‰

The 105 Challenge is a goal where I’m going to try and read 105 books during 2015. I got the number 105 by taking 12 (months in a year), adding two to make 14 (for absolutely no reason), then doing 14 + 13 + 12 +ย ย 11 + 10 + 9 + 8โ€ฆ+ 1.

To make things interesting, I didn’t want my challenge JUST to be trying to read 105 books. Instead, I am going to try to readโ€ฆ

14. Free category! (aka: I haven’t decided yet :P)
13. 2015 new releasesย (can be ARC’s)
12.ย Book club books!
11. YA Contemporaryย (can be ARC’s)
10. Print ARC’s (can be before or after release date)
9.ย Indie books
8. Debut books (from any year)
7. 2014 new releases (can be ARC’s)
6. Self Help/Motivational/Business books
5. Sequels
4. Books that were recommended to me (that I had never heard of before)
3. New Adult books
2. Books with rainbow covers
1. Re-read a book

Now hereโ€™s the fun part. I want YOU to join me in the challenge to read 105 books, and create a list just like mine where you pick 14 different categories and try to read 1 or 2 or 3…etc of each category.

One incentive for joining the challenge will be a rafflecopter where you can get points for completing each group of books! Rafflecopter will be picking a winner each month who will receive a special prize for completing part of the challenge.

The one requirement that I have for joining this challenge is that whenever you FINISH readingย an entire category, please make a GR shelf for it and send me the link through rafflecopter!

So what are you waiting for?
Join me in my quest to read 105 books!

  1. Ooooh, this sounds like a lot of fun of a challenge and we can choose our categories and all! I need to mull this over and figure out how I wanna do it, but I think I’ll join!

  4. This sounds like so much fun! My GR goal was going to be 50 books this year since it’s my first year setting myself a goal and I didn’t know how well I’d do under pressure but I think I’m definitely going to sign up for this one! Maybe it’ll give me more incentive to read even more books.

    Just a quick question – I’m not sure if you mentioned it in your post and if you did I’m sorry and I’m a loser but can this challenge cross over with others? So for example I’m going a retelling challenge so can one of the categories for this challenge be retellings?

    This sounds like fun. I’m trying to improve my year’s book amount read and get out the reading slump I’ve been in for too long (I have no idea why; it just happened). This looks like a good and fun way to get out of it. Now, to think of some categories…

    Working on my sign-up post and list. Will come back to link it up when it’s done. I’m really looking forward to this challenge. Very creative! Bravo! :O)

  7. I’m joining! I just have to write my blog post. I’ve been so behind lately >.<
    I was also adding together the months and I only got 78 o.O I don't know if I made a mistake or not but…just thought I would let you know

  8. I am definitely doing this! I will write a post about it ASAP, because this challenge is kind of perfect! I want to read 115 books overall, so this still leaves a bit of wiggle room. Thanks for doing this, I love it!
