New Year, New Me (2015 Reading Challenges)

I know it has been forever since I last posted but I wanted to try and get back into the habit of recording the books I read.
This year I am setting a few challenges for myself. Once again I will be attempting the 100 book challenge! Also I will be attempting another reading challenge. This challenge consists of a list of 43 challenges that I will have to complete. This list can be found on line but I removed some of the more outlandish challenges so that I would still have some freedom to read whatever I wanted. These are the 43 criteria I will have to read books for:
- a book with more than 500 pages
- a classic romance
- a book that became a movie
- a book published this year
- a book with a number in the title
- a book written by someone under 30
- a book with non-human characters
- a funny book
- a book written by a female author
- a mystery or thriller
- a book with a one word title
- a book of short stories
- a book set in a different country
- a non-fiction book
- a popular author's first book
- a book from an author that you haven't read yet
- a book a friend recommended
- a Pulitzer Prize-winning book
- a book based on a true story
- a book your mom loves
- a book that scares you
- a book more than 100 years old
- a book based entirely on its cover
- a memoir
- a book you can finish in a day
- a book set somewhere you always wanted to visit
- a book that came out the year you were born
- a book from your childhood
- a trilogy
- a book with a love triangle
- a book set in the future
- a book set in high school
- a book with a color in the title
- a book that made you cry
- a book with magic
- a graphic novel
- a book by an author you've never read before
- a book you own but have never read
- a book that was originally written in a different language
- a book set during Christmas
- a book written by an author with your same initials
- a book based on or turned into a TV show
- a book you started but never finished

I am so excited to begin this challenge and I hope to push myself to be open to reading book I may have overlooked before. I have actually already completed two of these challenges. I read a book that became a movie when I finally finished The Fellowship of the Ring by J.R.R. Tolkien. I also read a book by an author I loved but I had never read when I read (and loved!) Stone Cold Touch by Jennifer L. Armentrout. This is the sequel to White Hot Kiss and it left me craving the next book in the series which doesn't even have a cover or a release date yet (the agony). These books were the first two books of my 2015 reading year which leaves me with only 41 more challenges and 98 more books to read. I hope your 2015 reading year is EPIC!!
