Worst Book Read:


It wasn’t a horrible book, it just wasn’t for me.

And now since we are halfway through the year, here is a more in depth update on my Goodreads challenge.

My original goal was to read 75 books but I was already checking off # 70 so I decided to increase it to one more than the number of books I read last year.  I should have no problem beating it.  I have already beat what I accomplished in 2013.  Here is a look at my stats for the past couple of years.

I love looking at these stats on Goodreads!  It’s nice to be able to look back and see the year sorted out the way they do it.

  1. Awesome reading month for you! 🙂
    I’m going to have to increase my Goodreads challenge too! I’m six away from completing it. I’ve already had to increase it earlier in the year, so this will be the second time lol!
    I really want to read A Thousand Pieces of You. I have the book, I’ve always ended up picking up other books instead.
    Here is my recap post if you want to check it out:


  2. Looks like you had a great month! I’ve increased my goodreads challenge last month as well, although I’m thinking I could have increased it even more as I’m becoming close to reaching the goal again haha. I’m sorry to year you didn’t enjoy The Shock Of The Fall, but I guess that book just isn’t for everyone… And I’m planning on starting Outlander somewhere this month! 😀
