Stephanie’s Reading Challenges of 2017

2017 Challenges

2016 was a really rough year for me, reading wise. I didn’t make my Goodreads reading goal. I didn’t really finish any of the reading challenges I wanted to. And it was mainly because there have been a lot of life changes in my life in 2016. For one, I got married in April and January – May I was swamped with pre-wedding stuff and then post-wedding stuff. Then in August I found out that we are expecting a baby in April 2017. So then I dealt with the first trimester nausea which just took me on a reading slump. And then in November, I was swamped with making my NaNoWriMo goal and I actually made it! So, life has been super busy and has not been kind to my reading life. But I am hoping to change that in 2017! So, here’s a list of the 2017 reading challenges that I plan on participating in this upcoming year!
