One of these days, my TBR shelf is going to collapse on me and lead to my untimely death. What isn’t helping is that I keep ignoring my already voluminous TBR and buying brand new tomes to get through.
I have a long list of books that have been on my TBR shelf for years, but I still haven’t gotten to reading them yet. Maybe it’s time to pick something from there and get it ticked off once and for all before heading to Easons again.
2017 will forever be known as the year I killed it with my Goodreads challenge. Within the 116 books that I read throughout the 12 months, there were some that really shone. I’m not going to do the “top 10 books of 2017” or any other arbitrary number, but I do want to highlight some of the books that I loved so much, they got Goodreads’ highest honour.
Every year, I love seeing the little update that Goodreads sends you. It’s my favourite email from the early year, where I get to actually see what my reading year looked like, rather than guessing what it looked like. Goodreads really run through everything, but I do like to add on a little addendum myself.
Does anyone else think 2017 sped past us or is it really just me? It just feels like yesterday I was sat on my parent’s couch carrying out my NYE tradition of watching the Sydney fireworks on Sky News, and yet here I am today doing the exact same thing.
New Year’s Eve is a time for reflection, and for me it’s a perfect chance to have a think about the reading challenges I set myself this year. Did I reach what I wanted to when I laid them out in January 2017? Was I even close? Should I bother with a 2018 challenge at all? (That’s a bit defeatest, isn’t it?)
Challenge criteria: A book published before you were born. (This book was published in 1986 and I was born in 1992.)
Kristy thinks the Baby-sitters Club is a great idea. She and her friends Claudia, Stacey, and Mary Anne all love taking care of kids. A club will give them the chance to have lots of fun – and make tons of money.
