Reading Challenges and Checklists

Hey there amazing unicorns! (or reading unicorns? or better… Boonicorns!… Ughh… That sounded a lot better in my head… anyway) I hope you’re all having a great day/night/week so far!

I noticed today that I finally completed half of my goodreads reading challenge, which for me, is a great thing, considering how I stay at home all day long watching Sword Art Online, How I Met Your Mother and Monstres Contre Aliens (Monsters Versus Aliens in french). So I wanted to talk about the reading challenges I set myself this year, and there are two: my goodreads challenge to read 80 books during 2015, and completing all the challenges on PopSugar’s 2015 Reading Challenge.

First with my goodreads challenge. Last year I put my challenge to 35, because last year was my first year participating to the goodreads challenge, and I had no idea about how many books I could read. And by May I realised I read around 40 so I pushed up my challenge to 75, when I read about 85 I think by the end of the year. Also, I started  to write reviews last year, so I’m not really an expert at review writing; I’m still learning 🙂

My best reading month so far was January, where I read 21 books. It was also in January that I decided to review all(well, most) of my read books. And a month later I decided to create a blog where I could talk about everything I liked, most likely books.

So here are all the books I read so far, with more to follow soon. (also, I think I’m finally out of my slump. I’m so happy 😀 )
