2015 Reading Challenge

If you're a lover of books then it's pretty certain you've heard of a website called Goodreads.com! I was completely late to the party and only joined goodreads about midway through 2014, although I'm sure it's been going for years. 
For those that haven't heard of this website, goodreads is basically a site where you can upload, review and share any of the books you might own or want to read. My favourite part is that you're able to easily keep track of things like, how many books you own, how many of those you've read, how many you read in a year and things like that! Goodreads also do a yearly reading challenge where you can set yourself a goal to read however many books in a year. I love this idea! I can sometimes be absolutely useless at reading... I can go from reading a book in a day, to not reading anything for months on end. So I love the idea of having a goal to work towards and really pushing myself to read!
As I only joined goodreads half way through 2014, I found out pretty late about the reading challenge. But, being the ridiculous person I am, I decided to set myself a goal of 30 books to read before the end of the year! 30!! Needless to say I didn't achieve this goal. I think I ended up reading about 13 books, but I remember going months and months without reading anything so I know I can definitely beat that this year!
So, I decided to set the target for 2015 as the age that I will be turning this year, which is 21. I have no idea how many books I've read in a year prior to this but I really think I can achieve it if I push myself to carry on reading!

So that's my 2015 Reading Challenge. Fingers crossed I achieve it but we'll see when the year comes to an end and 2016 rolls around.
Let me know in the comments if any of you have a reading challenge for this year and how many books you're aiming to read!

  1. I am doing the reading challenge too, but I am going a lot easier on myself and I've only set myself the goal of reading twelve books.
    I've been considering reading Girl Online. I'll have to keep checking back for your review!

    1. 12 books is still a lot of books to read especially depending on the size of them, it's whatever works best for you! I really hope you achieve your goal! :)
      thankyou! I will definitely have a review up soon! :D

  2. Maybe I should do a reading challenge as well. I LOVE reading but I always think I won't finish the goal I set up for myself. Great post and now I'm seriously thinking of doing this challenge.

    1. I'm so happy you're considering doing the challenge! :) start small and then build up! if you set a goal for say 5 books in the year and complete that by mid year then think about increasing it to 10! if not you've still completed your first goal which is brill! :) hope it goes well for you!
