Reading Challenges Wrap Up

Morning Friends,

As the year get closer to its end, it's time to start wrapping up the year. So with that, I wanted to see how I did in the challenges I signed up for at the beginning of the year.

In the Goodreads Reading Challenge, I pledged myself to read 45 books. 
I actually read 68(!) books this year and I'm still counting. Whoo hoo!

In Falling For YA's NetGalley and Edelweiss Reading Challenge, I pledged to myself to read 10 books.
Falling For YA
The details for this challenge can be seen here.

These are the levels:
Bronze - 10 Books <----
Silver - 25 Books
Gold - 50 Books
Platinum - 75 Books
Diamond - 100 Books

I did 12 books. Just slightly surpassed the Bronze.

Lastly, in Bookish Lifestyle's TBR Pile Reading Challenge, I pledged to myself to read between 11-20 books off my TBR pile.
The details for this challenge can be seen here.
The levels are:
1-10 A Firm Handshake
11-20 A Friendly Hug <----
21-30 First Kiss
31-40 Sweet Summer Fling
41-50 Could This Be Love?
50+ Married with Children

I read 42 books from my TBR pile!

I am so proud of myself at how I did for this year challenges. I really tried to just read what I wanted and not let a reviewing schedule forced me into a rut. It also helped that I stopped requesting and downloading books from NetGalley and Edelweiss. Like, dramatically. I only request/download if I've read the author or it sounds AMAZING.

For the upcoming new year, I will probably only participate in the Goodreads challenge. I haven't seen any other challenges that really has captured my attention and I'm working on some stuff that I'll share with you guys later so I'll be a little busy. BUT, at least 2016 was a good reading year.

Did you participate in any (reading) challenges? How did you do?
