Last year I signed myself up to take part in the Goodreads 2012 reading challenge.
I set myself the challenge of reading at least 30 new books within the year….needless to say I didn’t quite make it! I managed the grand total of 21 books throughout the year which I am still quite pleased about!
I Am Legend – Richard Matheson
Treasure Island – Robert Louis Stevenson
The Silver Linings Play Book – Matthew Quick
Dinner With a Vampire (The Dark Heroine, #1) – Abigail Gibbs
PUSH – Sapphire
Dracula – Bram Stoker
Tess of the D’Urbervilles – Thomas Hardy
Life of Pi – Yann Martel
The Perks of Being a Wallflower – Stephen Chbosky
The Hobbit – J.R.R Tolkien
Me Before You - Moyes, Jojo
Fifty Shades Freed (Fifty Shades, #3) - E.L. James
Fifty Shades Darker (Fifty Shades, #2) - E.L. James
Fifty Shades of Grey (Fifty Shades, #1) - E.L. James
My Name Is Memory – Ann Brashers
Carmilla – Joseph Sheriden Le Fanu
The Lorax – Dr Seuss
Mockingjay (The Hunger Games, #3) - Suzanne Collins
Catching Fire (The Hunger Games, #2) – Suzanne Collins
The Hunger Games (The Hunger Games #1) – Suzanne Collins
Thirteen Reasons Why – Jay Asher
Whilst i’m pretty pleased I tackled a few classic books…i’m also ashamed to say I gave into the hype and read the 50 Shades trilogy!
I have quite a few books in my ‘to read’ pile for this year. These include:
The Passage – Justin Cronin (Currently reading and I love it!)
The Kill A Mockingbird – Harper Lee
Wonder – RJ Palacio
The Fault in our Stars – John Green
The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night-Time – Mark Haddon
Stardust – Neil Gaiman
The Odyssey – Homer
If anyone else is taking part in the reading challenge, let me know! It would be great to follow others progress too…hopefully it will encourage me to keep on track.
