I tried out audiobooks for the first time this past year and found my opinion sort of... up in the air if you will. I liked some things about them... I can listen to them while cleaning, doing dishes, while driving, putting dinner together or setting up for work. They made for convenient readiing, especially the ones with Whispersync for Voice on Kindle. I can read when I want or listen (although, I'm not sure if that cou ts for this challenge). The not so awesome side is that my attention wanders badly sometimes and I find myself thinking more on other things than concentrating on the book. With this I did 2 audiobooks in 2013 and so I have made my goal for this challenge 3 audiobooks. This puts me in the newbie category. Of course I can always go up!
Audiobook #1. Divergent by Veronica Roth
I have a huge TBR. It's books to come and books from WAY back. I like a good TBR Challenge or Read-a-thon and this one seemed like a good one. So... lets get the logistics out of the way:
This challenge is hosted by Coffee Bean Bookshelf and this information came from her blog.
There aren’t many rules for this challenge…but to clarify things, here they are:
Books read for the challenge need to have been published before January 1, 2014, but read and reviewed between January 1, 2014 and December 31, 2014. ARC’s and galleys received in 2013 for books that will be published in 2014 DO NOT count. Books can be any format, any genre, and written for any age group – no restrictions! Reviews can be posted wherever you feel comfortable – your blog, Goodreads, Amazon, etc. To enter your review into the monthly prize draw, you must link to your review.Reviews do not have to be a certain length to be eligible. You choose your own goals for this challenge! Please be sure to have your number somewhere on your goals post/page.
Each month, I will post a Rafflecopter where you can link up your reviews. The monthly prize will be a $10 gift card to a book retailer of the winner’s choice. There is a possibility of a grand-prize draw at the end of the year for all participants who completed their challenge.

5. All The Truth That's In Me by Julie Berry
6. Divergent by Veronica Roth
I gave this Reading Challenge it's own page because of the amount of info and series that come with it. It's also because several of them are not series that I will be finishing this year and some I will, so please check out that page! Thanks.
For this challenge my goal is Level 1: 100 Books. It is the 100 book minimum, but that works just fine for me. Hopefully I can get a little over one hundred this year! This one is tracked by a shelf here on BookLikes and on Goodreads and periodically I will attempt to update the list on here as well.
