Reading Challenges 2016

Hello fellow bookworms!

So maybe I’m being too ambitious here but I’ve decided to join a few reading challenges this year.

Along with my goodreads challenge in which I hope to read 90 books, I’ve decided to attempt the Pop Sugar Challenge, join Harper Collins 50 book pledge, and do the 2016 Reading Challenge on Instagram.

Whether I’ll finish any of these, who knows! It’s a bit tough with work to get the reading I want, but I try to fit it in.

I tend to read just cozy mysteries and YA novels, I thought these challenges might help branch out. Do any of you guys find yourselves reading the same type of books? Maybe you’ll want to challenge yourself this year and switch it up a bit as well!

Here are the challenges if any of you are interested in learning more about them, or maybe you can leave me some recommendations to fit some categories!


 

Harper Collins 50 Book Pledge

Here is the Harper Collins 50 book pledge! Since I tend to read a lot during the summerΒ  I actually pledged that I would read 75 books. This challenge is great for Canadians because there are weekly prizes and contests πŸ™‚

If you do end up joining this, here’s my Profile


Pop Sugar Challenge

I found out about this one from the lovely Nicole over at Away In Neverland

Here is a picture of the challenge and the challenge can be found here

If you have any recommendations for me on here let me know πŸ™‚

goodreadssynopsisParadise in Aruba quickly gets gruesome in this β€œripped-from-the-headlines thriller (Kirkus Reviews)” with a twist that defies the imagination.

It’s Spring Break of senior year. Anna, her boyfriend Tate, her best friend Elise, and a few other close friends are off to a debaucherous trip to Aruba that promises to be the time of their lives.

But when Elise is found brutally murdered, Anna finds herself trapped in a country not her own, fighting against vile and contemptuous accusations. As Anna sets out to find her friend’s killer, she discovers harsh revelations about her friendships, the slippery nature of truth, and the ache of young love.

Awaiting the judge’s decree, it becomes clear to Anna that everyone around her thinks she is not only guilty, but also dangerous. And when the whole story comes out, reality is more shocking than anyone could ever imagine…”


 

my review

This book was aboslutely amazing. I finished it yesterday in one sitting and I’m still just sitting here like wow.

This is by far the most underrated book in YA right now.

If you read one book this year, make it Dangerous Girls!

A lot of people will compare this to Pretty Little Liars, although I can see the smiliarities and I loved PLL, this book goes beyond that.

The story is absolutely intriguing. It goes from the past, to the present. So it’s all jumbled up but you’ll totally understand why. While Anna is on Trial you have to have the flashbacks of her story to see whether she is innocent or guilty.

The characters are well developed, and you can empathize with them, or hate them. Whichever you choose.

But the best part is just the overall layers in this book. There’s foreshadowing, there’s two different ways of looking at every single thing in this book and so much more. By the time you’ve read it all and you read that last page, you just sit there for a while like.

Seriously stop reading this review and just go read it!
