Friday is here once again, which means it's time to celebrate the small things with VikLit, author of Scribblings of an Aspiring Author.
This is a great hop to get us sharing with everyone those little achievements that have made us feel good over the last week or so.
This is a normally weekly hop, but I will be posting my celebrations every two weeks instead.
For 2013 I used my Goodreads account to set a reading challenge to read 24 books throughout the whole year. Having seen the amount of books other people have been reading this isn't a lot really, but with the commitments I had for the year this felt achievable.
Imagine my delight when I actually managed to read 29! Woohoo!
These are the books I managed to get through:
This year I've upped my target to 35, hoping to increase my reading intake gradually. While glancing through these books I realise that they're a bit of a mix, no particular flavour or genre is coming out.
So, I've set some particular goals for myself for 2014:
- I've started reading Stephen King's novels from the beginning, so I'd like to see how many of them I can get through.
- I'd also like to read all of the books so far in The Game of Thrones series. If I can manage all of these I'll be a happy bunny.
- There are plenty to keep me busy with these to authors so I may be able to squeeze something else in now and again :-)
Do you take part in the Goodreads Reading Challenge? Have you achieved your goals for 2013?
