    Wow that’s a lot, especially since not all of them will cross over. You are keen. 🙂 I’m only doing three challenges, 5 if you include the goodreads one (I’m trying to read 120 books) and I am also trying make about 80 of those ARC’s I have a few to get through. But I am lucky a lot of challenges, there’s cross over so one book will do for all three challenges, at the beginning anyway, may get harder near the end.

    Good luck with the challenges. I look forward to seeing your reviews 🙂

      Well, a lot of them can cross-over just fine. 🙂 Besides, if they all crossed-over then it wouldn’t be a challenge! >D Those are some good challenges you’ve got. I hope you get to your goal of 120 books and get down those ARCs. I know I’m going to be fighting a losing battle with that, but hey! Still worth it, I think. 😉

      Good luck with your challenges as well~ Hopefully I’ll be starting on those reviews this week, so tune in for more~~
