2015 Reading Challenge

On January 1st, 2014, I set a Goodreads Reading Challenge to read 30 books in 2014. I only ended up reading 13 books (2774 pages), but I am not upset that I didn’t reach my goal because I read 13 books! Awesome! That is more than most people have read in a lifetime, sadly.


5-star rating:
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by J.K. Rowling
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

4-star rating:
Recitatif by Toni Morrison
Dinner at the Homesick Restaurant by Anne Tyler

3-star rating:
The Fault in Our Stars by John Green

2-star rating:
N/A

1-star rating:
The Boy in the Striped Pajamas by John Boyne
Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert

Not yet rated:
The Epic of Gilgamesh by Anonymous
Translations of Beauty by Mia Yun
The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho
To Build a Fire by Jack London
An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge by Ambrose Bierce
The Yellow Wallpaper by Charlotte Gilman

In 2015, I have pledged to read 15 books by 2016. I am setting a lower goal but that doesn’t mean I won’t surpass my goal! I want to be realistic and not set too high of a reading challenge just in case I am unable to reach it again. Life can get pretty busy!

If you’d like to keep up with my reading, I’ve attached a widget on my sidebar underneath my welcome message (right), or you can always visit my Goodreads account here. I also post all my reviews on my account.
