Jess’s January Challenge Updates!

WOOOO! January! You did me right, my friend. Not to brag, but I read EIGHT books!


Here’s what I read…

I didn’t hit any kind of reading slump until that last week…but work and family stuff played into that a lot. Womp womp. I’m still recovering from all that now, 6 days into February, so lets hope it stops right now.

STOP IT, February!

Ok, lets get down to da bidness of the challenge updates.

Challenge Hashtag: #BlogOrganization

January was all about… Picking challenges , Making resolutions , Scheduling , Forming plans , Picking reading/blogging buddies .

The spreadsheets I created for the challenges have yet to be used. I kind of had a feeling that would happen… BUT! The Goodreads shelves have been SO helpful!! Here’s what those look like….

I did A LOT of blog/post maintenance which is really February’s plan, but I still have plenty to do, so no worries!

I ended up downloading the Broken Link Checker plugin and it’s really helped me figure which posts to fix/update first because if there’s any broken links or images it’ll list them for me.



Geeky Bloggers Book Blog


I decided to move these to my personal blog, Gone with her Thoughts, because it felt like it’d fit better over there. Not that much is going on over YET! But I’m hoping to start using it more often this year.

I read SHADOW AND BONE!! YESSS! And I loved it! Check out my post on it HERE! It’s amaziiiing!



2015 Contemporary Romance Reading Challenge

2nd Base: read 6 – 10 books. I read two books from this category already… I’m thinking I’ll be uping my level soon, lol.



Challenge Hashtag: #FlightsOfFantasy

I’ve challenged my self to read at least 10! I can count SHADOW & BONE for this challenge too! So, 1 down! 



The Daily Prophecy

Challenge Hashtag: #FairytaleRC

Magic mirror: 5 – 9 books. ONE DOWN! But a good one, and a re-read…

The 2015 Re-Read Challenge

Challenge Hashtag: #ReRead2015

Cinder! Glad I can cross-read for most of these challenges. :D I haven’t picked my next re-read yet though, so I’ll keep you guys posted on Twitter and Goodreads. :)



2015 Audiobook Challenge

Newbie (I’ll give it a try) 1-5. I wasn’t expecting to start off this strong, as you can see by the level I picked, but I’ve listened to 2.5 books! The 2.5 is because I listened to half of Shadow & Bone and read the other half. hehe


So, overall?

    Whoo! ALL THE GOALS.

    In January I read 17 but that’s because I have no life. Like reading 5k pages makes me wonder if I even see sunlight, lol.

    You’re in a HECKA amount of challenges which is totally awesome! I’m doing like one because challenges scare me but I want to get into the swing of things later on

    You crushed it alright! I kind of want to do a reread of Cinder before Winter comes out. Hopefully I’ll find the time to do it. And how is Shadow and Bone as an audio book? That sounds like it’d be really interesting.

    Also, can we be Blogger Organization buddies? I forgot to get one too! :p
