  1. I set my Goodreads challenge at 30 as I do every year, but I’m currently 10 books ahead of schedule so far this year! Starting my blog has obviously boosted my reading 🙂 I don’t think I can pick a favourite as I’ve read so many good books.

  2. Congrats on being ahead! That always feels wonderful. I set my goal for 100 and right now I’m on book 64.
    My best book so far is definitely ‘Name of the Wind’. My best graphic novel is ‘Sandman: The Kindly Ones’. But I’ve read such amazing reads!
    What was your favourite? And is there a book you’re especially looking forward to reading in the next half of the year?
    Happy Reading ❤

    1. Thank you. Wow, 64, that’s amazing! I hope you hit your 100 target.

      I have so many faves. I have to name series instead of individuals. The Mistborn Series, Promiscus Guardians Series, and The great Library Series.

      I’m currently reading Mistborn #3, and I can not wait for Brianna West’s new book Pavel.

  3. Well done! That’s a lot of books to read in a year! 😀 I’m not sure how well I’m doing; since I’m not actively taking part in the challenge I didn’t keep count! Might be an idea to add up how many I’ve read so far… It’s nowhere near 36 though! Go you! 🙂
