2017 Reading Challenge

My first proper post of the new year - sorry I've been a bit hit and miss, but I've had loads going on! Just wanted to do a round up on last years reading challenge. I'm a bit gutted because it's the first one I have failed since I joined Goodreads back in 2012!

There is everything I managed to read last year. It still looks like a decent number of books, but I am disappointed that I missed my target by 2 books overall. I read 5746 pages in total, which is also my lowest since starting with Goodreads. Grr! On a positive, I only missed my target because I was too busy prepping for my wedding, getting married and then having our honeymoon, so there were worse things to be doing!

Favourite books? Shutter Island was so awesome, and it was great to go back in time and read Of Mice And Men again - which I did for my GCSE English Literature. I ticked off a few that'd been on my to read list for years, so that's good too.

So for 2018 I have set myself a target of 16 books. I have done that before (saying that, I have managed 18 before!) so we shall see. I should have a lot more time on my hands this year, when I'm not crocheting 14m of bunting, spending hour after hour looking for and buying wedding bits, and getting married! I'm still going to have lots on - I have started a bullet journal, am still crocheting and cooking, and of course have friends and family to think of too. But 16 books is my target and I will happily go over! Wish me luck!
