Ah, December... One of those lovely months where you look back on what you've done this year while simultaneously looking forward to what you want to do next year.
This year, I participated in numerous blogging challenges and, for the most part, failed.
I'm determined that 2019 will be different!
As such, I've signed up for challenges that should be perfectly do-able even with my mood-reader tendencies. Maybe, I should have chosen some that would be more challenging but... I'm throwing myself a bone here!
So, here are the reading challenges I'm participating in in 2019!
This one is a new one for me and since I don't usually read royal books, but have a few I want to read, I'm in!
Read books that have a royal theme.
Books that center around anyone with a royal title (Prince, Princess, Queen, Duke, etc.), knights, castles, kingdoms, or heroic quests.
My target level is: Duchess (10-12 books)
To check out the rules, and/or sign up, visit She's Got Book On Her Mind!
I took part in this one this year but I failed at it miserably. This year, I'm going to succeed!
There's a word each month and any time during the month you can blog about that word.
In any way you want. Review, recipe, photos, stories, etc.

Oh, I like a good bad boy... So this may not be much of a challenge but I'm going for it anyway!
Read books about the bad boy!
MC members, Streetfighters, MMA stars, Rock Stars... You get the picture!
My target level is number 2: Engaged To The Bad Boy (10-15 books)

My backlist is extensive. I want to whittle it down so this Beat The Backlist challenge should help motivate me to do it!
This reading challenge is all about knocking off those older books from your to-read list. Any genre, any format, any length.
I'm going to start knocking books off my Beat The Backlist 2019 shelf! (All pre-2019 of course!) My target is 60 books!

2019 Audible Challenge
Ok. I did it. I signed up for an audiobook challenge.
No matter how many times I try - and fail - to like audiobooks, I seem incapable of just saying no and backing away from them.
I'm going to go easy on myself and aim for the rank of Newbie (1-5 audiobooks) as that will allow me to listen to the little dude's Heroes of Olympus series. He loved them and in the snippets I caught the narrator didn't seem to be too bad...
Sunny Buzzy Books does not receive payment in exchange for book reviews. However, I do receive free copies of books for review. This does not influence my opinion of the book.
On reviews where I have received a free copy of the book, for the purpose of a review, the source is stated clearly.
All other books that I review have been purchased (by me or for me), gifted to me (i.e won in a giveaway) or borrowed from the library.
Sunny Buzzy Books is part of the Amazon affiliate program (.com and co.uk). If you purchase a book through one of these links, you will not be charged anything more than the standard purchase price, however, I will receive a tiny percentage of the sale price from Amazon. Any income received from affiliate purchases helps to support the blog.
I get the majority of my blog images from a variety of sources, all with a creative commons license. My preferred source is Pixabay I then edit them to suit my needs. Please do not use an image from my blog without permission.
Book Covers, I save from Goodreads for the purpose of embellishing book reviews and highlighting the book only.
I also receive promotional materials - teaser images - from authors and publishers that I share to highlight the book. I do not own these images but I share them with permission. Once more, please do not take images from my blog without permission. If you wish to use one, ask.
