Berls @ Fantasy is more fun and I are recapping 2015
and looking ahead to 2016 the next 12 days.
Feel free to join us!
I’ll be sharing highlights month-by-month and giving you a peak at what’s ahead in 2016.

out with the OLD: 2015

This year I joined a few challenges as well as co-hosting a few of my own with friends. Of course we had COYER that was a blast this summer with a scavenger hunt and I totally failed at my other challenge the 2015 Reading Assignment. I did pretty good with the Bookish Resolutions. I am happy that we are getting both the 2015HW and BookishRes back again with a few changes. You have time to sign up still 2016HW HERE and Bookish Resolutions HERE. COYER is also starting soon but you can still sign up for that too. If you never did COYER that is ok because we are going back to basics. You can sign up for the HERE.

All my other challenges I did rather well, 2015 New Release, Netgalley and Edelweiss and Horror challenge. My only problem was that I didn’t keep up with them like I had hoped I would and my challenge page got very quiet. This year I plan to do a few of the same and maybe a few more.
