2015 Reading Challenges

My friend, Aurora, suggested a few reading challenges to me. I've missed reading challenges this past year, and reading in general. I only read 10 books in 2014, down from 70 in 2013. I think getting the internet at home and Netflix were huge factors but not signing up for any reading challenge played a part. I love stories in any format, but books tell stories differently that TV and movies.

I want to get back into reading and so I am signing up for 15 challenges. Thank you Aurora for the motivative suggestion! If you want to find more or different reading challenges try A Novel Challenge.

I see you signed up for the Cloak & Dagger Challenge. Amy has taken a bloggy break, so I am hosting it at Thoughts From an Evil Overlord if you read any mysteries/thrillers/crime you'd like to link up. Or if you're looking for some to read there are lots of choices.
Good luck with your challenges.
