Goodreads Shelves!

I have been using Goodreads for a very long time, don’t ask me when I started because I have no idea. Well back in the day I don’t think I really understood the whole shelf system and as a result, my Goodreads shelves are shockingly disorganised and not only that but there are books on there that I apparently wanted to read and now I don’t. There are also other categories that I want to have so I can organise […]

2018 Reading Goals

Each year I set myself goals to achieve alongside the Goodreads challenge because numbers mean nothing! Obviously, I don’t have enough on my plate I like to make it more complicated. Well, I hope I haven’t with my 2018 reading goals. I’ve tried to keep things tame. Last year I planned to read 25 of the Terry Pratchett’s Discworld series, and although they were on my radar I just didn’t put the effort in, so I failed. This year, even […]

2017 Personal Reading Goals | Blogmas Day 19

This year I set myself the goal of reading the entire Song of Ice and Fire series. It was good to have some kind of direction when I was picking which books I wanted to read each month. It was lovely knowing that I had something other than a number of books to work towards. Plus they had been sat on my shelf for so long – it was time. Plus I did it, I managed to complete my personal […]

My reading challenge

I thought it would be a good time to talk about why I don’t have a huge amount of books on my monthly reading list and my reading challenge. Last year I set myself the challenge of reading 125 books in a year which looking back was a complete stretch and I had spent the entire year worrying about whether or not the book I was reading was too long or taking too much time. It became a stressful experience […]
