As of last night I have completed my 2015 Goodreads Challenge (again)! I had originally set my goal for 75 books but ended up surpassing that goal months ago. So I decided to up my goal to read one more book than I read last year. Last year my goal was to read 100 books and I ended up reading 109. So when I upped my goal this year, I set it at 110.
Yesterday morning I started Ruin and Rising by Leigh Bardugo. I hadn’t planned on reading the entire thing in one day but I just couldn’t put it down! I was so engrossed in it that I didn’t even notice the time. I ended up staying up late again (the previous night was a late night finishing Queen of Shadows) to finish reading a book.
I have a feeling that this will be the only challenge I set for this year that I will 100% complete. Well I guess technically my 2015 NetGalley Challenge was completed awhile ago based on the original goal I set. But it feels really good to meet this goal. It almost feels like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders. That is my only problem with setting these challenges. I can sometimes feel a little stressed to try and meet my goals. But now I am free to read at whatever pace I desire and that feels great!
Here is a look at my stats so far in comparison with 2014 and 2013.
What I am most looking forward to reading right now is the list I have been compiling of books I own that are either spooky, scary or supernatural/paranormal to read in October to get in the Halloween spirit. I love Halloween so I’m really excited to have a theme month for my reading. I will be revealing my October TBR closer to the beginning of October.
Last night after I finished reading Ruin and Rising I was struggling to decide what I wanted to read next. I pulled a few titles from my TBR jar but really wasn’t feeling them so I decided to sleep on it and just look at my living room shelf in the morning. The second I laid eyes on it this morning, I knew this was the book I wanted to read now.
The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater
