2015 Reading Goals and Challenges


Hello lovely people! I hope your year has been going great so far; mine has been busy the way it has been for months. I do finish exams in a couple of weeks though, and I’m hoping I can manage being more active on the blog. I was quite disappointed by the end of the year stats; apprently, I’ve only made 24 posts throughout the whole year, and that’s a shame. I’ve read great books (coincidently, 24 as well) and didn’t get the chance to tell you all about them or have anything concrete to remember them by or reference later on. I hope this remorse will fuel my dedication to reviewing throughout the next year, even if I’m busy.

Reading Challenges: Bout of Books 11

Bout of Books

The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda @ On a Book Bender and Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal. It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01am Monday, August 18th and runs through Sunday, August 24th in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure, and the only reading competition is between you and your usual number of books read in a week. There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 11 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team

Challenges:- Reading Challenge 2014


So I came upon this challenge at the beginning of the year, but with the fuss of the ongoing exams back then, I forgot to include it in the challenges post. I find this challenge quite interesting and versatile, and I admire that it includes re-reading books. It’s hosted on Tuesday Wednesday, if you want to check it out. Here’s my list! I tried, as much as possible, to put in books that I already own so I can conquer my massive TBR list.

Bout of Books 7.0 Update (#1)

Okay. So by now you probably think that I’ve given up on this because I haven’t brought it up. But guess what? I’m still on it! Things are going a bit slow, but I’m at peace with that. On day one, I finished the second half of the Reptile Room by Lemony Snicket which was nicer than the first book in the series. And I read 20 pages ahead in the Catcher in the Rye. I was already on page 60-something.

Yesterday, although I had plans to finish the Catcher in the Rye or almost do that anyway, I kinda got distracted I didn’t. Actually, yesterday was a lot of fun. I woke up in the morning, put my contacts and some makeup on even though I wasn’t going anywhere, and then I watched 4 episodes of Broadchurch. The FUN. By the time I picked up the Catcher in the Rye again, I had come to the realisation that I’m a lot like Holden. Putting on a hat at home just because I felt like it… Who even does that? But yeah… Currently, I’m on page 134, so I have like 80 more pages to go.

I hope everyone is doing well –hopefully better than I am– and that they’re having fun. See in the next update.
