2015 Challenges

I really enjoyed participating in challenges in 2014 so I've signed up for a couple again this year. I signed up for the goodreads challenge again, reducing my aim to 100 books. I reached my target of 150 last year, but I'm not sure what this year will bring me so I'm playing it a little safe!
Here are some of the others I'm doing.

Historical Romance Reading Challenge


I'm going to go for the historical romance challenge again, hosted by Anna at Herding Cats Burning Soup, because I enjoyed it last year!
I'll aim for at least level 3, 24 books, again. Let's see if I make level 5 (100+), ha!
Clicking the picture above will take you to the sign up page.

All historical romances over 80 pages count!
Anything prior to 1920 as far as year goes.
All you do is read then review (on goodreads, amazon or your blog) then link up your review :)

It can be a fusion read (ex--paranormal historical)
Cross over from other challenges count.
