105 Challenge 2015 hosted by Read Write Love 28!!


Well, today I'm doing my usual Tell Me Tuesdays because I'm still reading Symbiont since last week, but I am joining yet another reading challenge for 2015!!

Remember when I said I didn't want to over do it? Well, already signed up for 3 challenges and 2015 still hasn't arrived!

The good thing about the 105 Challenge is that you can combine more than one challenge! It is hosted by Nori of Read Write Love 28 and you're supposed to read 105 books!

And not only read 105 books, because you might think that 105 is a bit of an odd number, but it's done by adding up 12 + 11 + 10 + 9 + 8 + 7 + 6 + 5 + 4 + 3 +2 + 1!

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 Nori has for joining this challenge is that whenever you FINISH reading an entire category, please make a GR shelf for it and send her the link through rafflecopter!

Here are my categories for this challenge!

14 - Review copies (either physical or eARCs)

13 - Physical books from my TBR that have been there since 2014 or before

12 - Alyssa Recommends books

11 - 2015 new releases (first books, sequels, debuts)

10 -  Diversity & LGBT books

9 - Fantasy books

8 - Classic MG & YA

7 - Final books in a series not published in 2015

6 - YA contemporary

5 - MG books

4 - Dystopian books

3 - Indie books

2 - Re-reads

1 - Non-fiction book

So that's it, I'm planning to add a lil more variety, keep up with my review copies and make sure I don't stress myself too much thinking of completing my challenge!

  1. Wow, good for you Pili! WOO HOO!!!! I fail at challenges. I tried one, the act of simply signing up made me not want to read any of the books for the challenge. I have no idea why. Just a weird mental thing about HAVING to do something and thus not wanting to do it. *pats self on back for being awesome* Good luck with your three challenges my friend!

    1. Thank you Jenny! I do well with challenges if I already want to read stuff, and also when I push myself out of my comfort zone a lil bit!

  3. That's PERFECT! I like the sound of this challenge and I am SO tempted to enter but... I don't like challenges since I can never keep up. It's a weird thing to say considering how many books I read but I hate keeping track of what I am reading in terms of categories so it just becomes hard .-.

    But GOOD LUCK WITH IT, Pili! :D I am sure you'll win! :)
