2013 Goodreads Challenge

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!
