Goodreads Reading Challenge 2014

Goodreads have added a Reading Challenge widget this year and it is awesome!

You set your own reading challenge and log all the books you read. I didn’t do a reading challenge last year, but yet I managed to read 66 books in 2013 (granted, in one week I read 8 books as I was away on holidays for a week!!!) so I decided to up my numbers this year!

I’ve set myself the task of reading 100 books this year, which works out as 1-2 books a week! So far, I’ve read 10 and I’m on my 11th (by my standards and previous reading frenzies, it’s a little slow) book of the year.

Since January, I have read the following:

The Goldfinch – Donna Tartt
Here’s Looking At You – Mhairi McFarlane
The Hardest Part Of Love – Catherine Ryan Hyde
The Wolf Of Wall Street – Jordan Belfort
You Had Me At Hello – Mhairi McFarlane
A Tap On The Window – Linwood Barclay
The Stag and Hen Weekend – Mike Gayle
Bonkers: My Life In Laughs – Jennifer Saunders
Solo: A James Bond Novel – William Boyd
Poppet – Mo Hayder

I’m currently reading The Hanging by Lotte Hammer

Clearly I read diverse books, but my favourite genre is Crime or Psychological thrillers, so any other genres are usually easy to give my brain a break!

I’d highly recommend Poppet! Strange but a very good read if you like thrillers!
