Reading Updates

Whew these last few books have flown by. If anybody checks my Goodreads updates, you know I’ve read 9 books in the last month (since Oct. 12).  My Goodreads goal this year is to read 50 books. I am tireless in my pursuit of conquering this goal and yet I fear I might not make it.

Wow I sound so melodramatic 😆. Okay, so it’s not that serious, but I have been hard at work and am happy to proclaim that I have read 42 books this year! That’s 84% of my goal. (Whoop Whoop!)  My other goal includes posting 15 reviews on this blog. So far I’ve had 13 book reviewish related posts.

Now for the bad news… I am WAY behind on my book reviews (Sorry). I just happen to read faster than I review, especially if I’m reading a series. Not to mention my full time college schedule (Uggh). Don’t worry though, I promise I will update more often this coming year and even starting this month (or whats left of it anyways).

Okay, so here is a short overview of what I’ve been doing/reading this last month(ish):
