Goodreads Challenge – 2015

So this year I decided to embark on the Goodreads annual reading challenge – this is what motivated me to start a blog. I have always enjoyed reading but have never found the time to do so (a poor excuse, I know). This challenge kept me motivated and I now read whenever I possibly can.

I set myself a reading target of 24 books, which isn’t an impressive target I know, but it’s a start! I am happy to say, this has now been completed with plenty of time to spare (well, almost!)

  24. Stan: Richard Wold (completed 14th November)

As you can see, my reading didn’t really pick up until June/July time so that’s why my target was so low. Soon after reading ‘Blindsided’, I quickly landed on my feet with reading again and decided to make my blog. Mainly to document what I had read (so I actually had a record of it somewhere!) but also to express my views to other people. We all read things differently but I would like to think my book reviews have helped you read at least one book based on my review!

Now, on to 2016! I’m yet to decide on my reading target…but I will make it higher than 24!
