Goodreads Reading Challenge 2018

I have just realised that I have hit my 40 books Goodreads Challenge. Whoop whoop!

This year has been a little more hectic with the addition of my son, so last year’s 80 book goal was a no go. Halving that total for 2018 was spot on. Granted, I have read a lot of novellas due to a lack of time, but I’m amazed I hit 40 with how crazy this year has been.

However, that isn’t me done! I shall see what my actual amount is at the end of December.

Are you participating in the Goodreads Challenge? Have you hit your goal, or still working on it? There’s still time, so good luck.

July to December Reads Round Up

book review(3)

How is it the end of 2017? I feel this way at the end of every passing year. Time keeps slipping away from us.  I like to look back over my reads for the year, and despite the year flying by, some of the reviews feel so long ago. I view the amount of books I have read as an accomplishment.

I have participated in the Goodreads Reading Challenge again this year. I somehow managed to hit my 80 book target. Whoop Whoop! 2018’s target will be considerably less due to a hectic year ahead.

If you’d like to check out my reads from Jan-Jun 2017 and have a gander at some of my reviews, you can do so right here.
