Year in Books.

So this is really, really late, but I still wanted to post it. So, here are my reading stats for 2014.

So, another year has came and gone. 2014 was a decent year reading and life wise for me. I signed up for college classes (Side note, since I'm editing this in 2015 these classes have already started and are completely sucking up all of my reading time and I hate them for it) . I attended quite a few weddings in 1014. My Mom started school again. I won NaNoWrimo again in 2014 (Yay!).

I didn't read as many books as I hoped and I've been in a reading slump for the past few months, but I did read a lot of great books. However, that is balanced out by the fact that I read quite a few horrible books. So, yeah, its been a decent year.



Books Read| 74
My Goodreads challenge was set at 100 but I'm not all that mad at myself for not reaching it. For me my Goodreads challenge is more of an outline of what I want to read and I never really push myself to read all 100 books in a year. However, 74 is really low for me. Last year I read 15 more books and the year before that I read 12 more books. So, this wasn't my best year.

I planed to read 11-20 TBR books and I read 3.

That was my year, how was yours? Was 2014 a good or bad year for you?
Happy Reading

  1. Congrats on reading 74 books last year! My goal for 2014 was much lower than the previous year's because I was trying to be realistic about the amount of time I have for reading these days, and I still fell just short of my goal of 50, lol. It's so tough fitting in reading time because of work/school; I hope you're able to do some fun, non-school related reading soon! :)
