That’s all the books I’ve read as part of this challenge. I’m still trying to read more books, I’m figuring out what my goal for next year could be. I’m hoping 30, but that sounds too ambitious. As for the books I’ve already read, I feel like I read a big range. I get bored if I keep reading from the same genre over and over. I’ve never had a favourite one. I like mixing fiction and non-fiction, as well as light, funny books with more serious ones.

What books have you guys been reading lately?

  1. “That’s all” you say, that’s a lot of books!

    1. Haha, it is a lot! I was happy to reach my goal of 20 books this year! 😀

  2. Read Girl with dragon tatoo. This week went into three charity shops and found books 2 and 3 of the triology so got those to look forward to.

    This week read 5 letters and reviewed.

    Last month for reading club; read The Knife of never letting going by Patrick Ness. It is not the sort of thing I would usually read; a dystopian type thing. Just started reading for book club next month My Brilliant Friend.

    Read Into the Water earlier in the year.

    1. That’s cool. I liked the second and third of Stieg Larsson’s trilogy, but the first was definitely the one I liked the most! 🙂

  3. I love how versatile your list is! <3

    1. Thank you! I lose interest if I read a similar book one after the other, so i like to change things up! ?

      1. I have a tendency to read multiple books at the same time (right now I have four), and they are ALL different. Variety definitely helps! <3

  4. You have such a great reading list! I keep meaning to read Gillian Flynn but I haven’t gotten around to it. I’ve seen the gone girl movie though, as well as the martian. I also need to read the Tina Fey Book!

    1. Thank you! I really like her writing style, and Gone Girl is definitely the best!
