The Mad Reviewer Reading & Reviewing Challenge 2015 – Sign-Up Post


The Mad Reviewer Reading and Reviewing Challenge 2015 is hosted by Carrie @ The Mad Reviewer.

The ultimate goal of the challenge is to read and review 104 books in one year starting on January 1, 2015 until December 31, 2015. However, since not all can read and review that much book in a year, Carrie created different levels that you can take on for this challenge.


The Levels:

1.  Mad Reviewer: 104 books in one year. (2 books a week all year.)

2.  Crazy Reviewer: 52 books in one year. (1 book a week all year.)

3.  Slightly Sane Reviewer: 26 books in one year. (1 book every fortnight all year.)

4.  Sane Reviewer: 12 books in one year.  (1 book every month all year.)


My Goal:

I’ve participated in this same challenge last year and while I initially signed up for the Crazy Reviewer Level, I surprised myself when I actually reached the Mad Reviewer Level, reaching a total of 114 read and reviewed books for 2014 *happy dance*. 🙂

As for 2015, I am not sure I can reach the Mad Reviewer Level again because I am expecting quite huge transitions in my life this year especially with regard to my studies. So for this year, I’m going to target the Crazy Reviewer Level and try to read and review at least 52 books.

New to You! Reading Challenge 2015 – Sign-up Post


new to you challenge


New to You! Reading Challenge 2015 is hosted by Anna @ Herding Cats & Burning Soup.

The goal for this one is pretty simple… read something “new” to you in 2015 and review it.

This can be a debut author.
A brand new to you author.
An old favorites “debut” book.
A new series.
A first time reading a new genre (ex if you read your first New Adult book)
or any other new that crosses your path
Everyone is welcome to join–blogger, author, reader
Any genre/heat level is fine.


Here are the levels you can conquer:

Level 1–   6 “new to you”s
Level 2– 12 “new to you”s
Level 3– 24 “new to you”s
Level 4– 36 “new to you”s
Level 5– 48 “new to you”s
Level 6– 72 “new to you”s
Level 7–100+ “new to you”s


I’m going to start with baby steps and take on Level 1 at the moment. I may go up to Level 2 but only if I’ve found the right books for this challenge. In any case, I’m always excited for anything new so I’m happy to participate in this challenge.

  2. This Song Will Save Your Life by Leila Sales (New-to-me author)
