i love 2012

It's been a good year for reading so far. How do I know this? Goodreads told me:



You know you're reading a lot when social media sites are telling you to increase your yearly reading goal :)

So here's my updated goal:



45 books! Last year (when my goal was 20 and I managed 24) this would have seemed impossible, but it's been a good year for reading. I'm learning to skim a bit when books are boring (a difficult but worthwhile skill for me) and that prevents me from wasting precious time on so-so books. And in respect to the authors, I only do it when the situation is dire. I'm also sticking firmly to reading only books I want to read, and not giving in to the books I feel I ought to read.

Here are a few of the books I'm considering to fill the 8 spots I need to make it to 45:

Writing Down the Bones (which I just started)
The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
Gone Girl
The Fault in Our Stars
Let's Pretend This Never Happened
Norwegian Wood
The Angel's Game
Life of Pi
Cloud Atlas
The Tipping Point
Arcadia


Do you have a reading goal this year?

  1. You should def read Life of Pi before the Ang Lee movie comes out! It looks great! Also I love Arcadia...

    1. It does! I'm really excited to read the book. Such a cool concept for a story!

      And I'm so glad you mentioned Arcadia! It's probably the one book on my list that I know the least about because no one I know has read it, but I'm really looking forward to it.
