How is everyone today? Today I am going to give you all an update on how my bookish life is going this year!
At the beginning of the year, my Goodreads reading challenge was set at 52 books – I figured that one per week is pretty good going and what with my very stressful year to come, I figured that was sufficient.
I can gladly tell you that I have WELL passed that! As of today, I am up to 81 books! 81 books! That is pretty good going. I’d like to thank the summer holidays and half terms with readathons for that!
Now, my Goodreads total doesn’t include ANY picture books I’ve read (and I’ve read an awful lot), so in reality I’ve probably read a LOT more.
I’ve read 46 YA books, 31 MG books and then 4 which I do not know how to categorise (see: Matt Haig books because he is INCREDIBLE).
My aim is to try and get 52 YA books read and 52 MG books. I reckon I can do that by the end of the year… maybe!
You may also have known that during September I was on a book buying ban. I was taking part in this with some of my favourite twitter people. I can gladly tell you that I succeeded in my mission of no books bought in September (I did receive lots of gorgeous books in the post, so thank you publishers!). I had 1 day of weakness and am continuing on my ban until October half term… so I can treat myself!
How is your year in books looking?
