3days3quoteschallenge

I wasn’t tagged by anyone specifically, although I saw this on My Tiny Obsessions page, and I thought it would be fun to do! Especially since I’ve been gone for over a month, I thought this would be fun as a getting-back-into-blogging post! This is the 3 Days 3 Quotes Challenge. I think this may have been around for a bit, but this is my first time seeing it.

THE RULES:

  1. Thank the person who nominated you.
  2. Post a quote for 3 consecutive days (1 quote for each day)
  3. Nominate three new bloggers each day! (If you’re reading this, and want to do it, go right ahead! I tag you!

This paragraph really stuck out to me when I read Paper Towns and I thought I’d share:

“Did you know that for pretty much the entire history of the human species, the average life span was less than thirty years? You could count on ten years or so of real adulthood, right? There was no planning for retirement, There was no planning for a career. There was no planning. No time for planning. No time for a future. But then the life spans started getting longer, and people started having more and more future. And now life has become the future. Every moment of your life is lived for the future–you go to high school so you can go to college so you can get a good job so you can get a nice house so you can afford to send your kids to college so they can get a good job so they can get a nice house so they can afford to send their kids to college.”

This is a quote from Scarlet that always makes me laugh when I read it!

“A relieved grin filled up Thorne’s face. “We’re having another moment, aren’t we?”
“If by a moment, you mean me not wanting to strangle you for the first time since we met, then I guess we are.” Cinder slumped back on the floor. “Although maybe I’m just too exhausted to want to strangle anybody.”

My first quote is from one of my favorite books: Clockwork Princess!

“Life is a book and there are a thousand pages I have not yet read.”

2016 Reading Challenges

Happy-New-Year-2016-ImagesI always find reading challenges to be fun. Mainly because I never put pressure on myself to finish them. If I do finish them, great, and if I don’t then that’s fine. I normally choose a few challenges to do throughout the year for fun. This year I have picked 4 challenges.

  1. Flights of Fantasy Reading Challenge: I choose this challenge because I don’t read much fantasy. It’s fof-button-2016something that I feel like I’m missing out on. I’m definitely considered a “fantasy newbie” when it comes to this genre. I missed out on a lot of series because this genre always intimidates me.
  2. 2016 Discussion Challenge: I love talking about books, but I never do discussion 2016-Discussion-Challengeposts, which is disappointing. So I decided that I want to do more of those! If you have any recommendations on topics, let me know! I’m making a list.
  3. Popsugar’s Ultimate Reading Challenge: This challenge I’m still on the fence about. I’ve been seeing this around, and I think I’m going to try it and just have fun with this one. If I read booksROCK that fit the categories than great, if not, oh well!
  4. #RockMyTBR Challenge: This one just seems like a lot of fun, and one that I’m excited to participate in!

So those are the challenges that I’m going to attempt and just have fun with. I plan on using books for multiple challenges, and possibly doubling up with the Popsugar Challenge. What reading challenges are you participating in?
