Alrighty! I’m pumped up to start this year’s challenge after not reading anything (not even comics) since September. Aside from all the things that happened last year, the last book I read, “The Girl on the Train” by Paula Hawkins did a number on me. It wasn’t a difficult read however it was very engaging and I got emotionally invested on it.
For 2016, I committed to reading 12 books on Goodreads. I know it’s significantly less than last year’s (24). This because I have to make up for last year’s count: the comics bumped up my numbers. So this year, I’m reading 12 and then another 8.
I’ve already decided on the first three books: “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” by Alan Dean Foster, “Modern Romance” by Aziz Ansari, and “The Alchemist” by Paulo Coelho.
And that’s it for reading challenges updates. I hope I can do more reviews this year for the books I finished.

This one can pass as not late, lol. When 2015 started, I was excited to start reading the Doctor Who book I got over Christmas 2014 and things just kinda continued from there. I kept forgetting to wrap up my 2014 reading challenge and do an initial post for 2015.
And yep, I also completed 2015’s challenge. Yayers!
Below are the titles I read:
I have to admit the comics really bumped up my numbers. So counting the comics from the same series as one, my total would just be 16 and I committed to 24. :( I plan to remedy that on the 2016 reading challenge though. More on this on the next reading challenge post.
The thing about this year’s reads are that I love every single one of them. I’d recommend them to anyone. I also read 3 more for the second challenge. That makes it 7 out of 32 books.
2016 reading challenge initial post up next!

I know I know. This is one uber late post. The first of three for reading challenges. For reasons, please read the last three or four personal updates.
I am happy to report that for the 3rd year in a row, my reading challenge was a success.
Below are the books I read:
The book with no picture is “Signed, Sealed, Delivered” by Avril Tremayne. Okay so there are 6 comics and 1 short story on the list, so that may be kind of cheating. However, I read a lot of free books on Wattpad that aren’t on Goodreads so it balances. I didn’t get far on my 2nd reading challenge and read 4 books out of 31. I’m not too disappointed though because there isn’t a deadline for that challenge. On to the next reading challenge post.
