My Goodreads Reading Challenge

Now that a new year has come around, that means one thing – a new Goodreads reading challenge! Last year, I set myself a goal of 50 books which I managed to surpass in the summer. In 2015, I actually managed to read a grand total of 118 books – and that was with some massive reading slumps.

With that in mind, I am attempting to read 125 books this year. It should be achievable as I would certainly have managed it if I hadn’t hit so many reading slumps throughout the year. I don’t really have a particular genre I will be sticking too, no real reading resolutions as such except to get both my physical TBR and Kindle TBR down somewhat and to donate any books I no longer want to keep (read or unread) to local charity shops.

The stats for my 2015 Goodreads reading challenge are quite interesting, showcasing that I read almost any genre, almost any length. I did find myself reading a lot of cosy mysteries last year but I find them really easy reads and I really enjoy them – so why not? They probably helped boost my total a lot too – but it doesn’t matter if your book is 200 pages long or 900, its still a book and can be counted towards your challenge.

I am considering writing a post at the beginning each month, wrapping up what I’ve read and my thoughts and updating you on how I am getting on with my Goodreads reading challenge, keeping me accountable and giving me something to look back on at the end of the year. Wish me luck!

  1. Ergh I failed so badly with the Goodreads challenge this year. The number of books I read each year has been rapidly declining since I got to university but I’m hoping to change that this year!! Would love to read a monthly update about how you’re getting along 🙂

  2. Thats amazing! I need to honestly start reading! so far i read blogs and inspirational books but there is not much of read there. You always keep me motivated! happy new year!

  3. Wow you’ve read so many! I really need to get back into reading and I’m using my holiday to do that. I have the book I Let You Go to read while I’m away, hoping it’s great! Xxx
