The Book Challenge 2014

I know that we're nearing March now, but after coming up with this idea I thought that it was definitely not too late to post it! 


In January I had a chat with a few girls on Twitter who were setting themselves targets as to how many books they could read in a year. I didn't set myself any, but decided to write down each book that I read over the year. At the moment, the figure is pretty high as I will admit, I am a HUGE book geek. I love getting comfy in bed and having a good read before I go to sleep. Also, I read quite a lot on my iPad which means I can get stuck into a book on the way to work and university, and on any breaks that I have, so I do get through quite a lot. I also have a really bad problem with buying books, shoving them on my bookshelf and then forgetting about them, especially with those pesky deals like "3 for £5" that they have in bookstores! So, I've also made a list of books that I need to read and (hopefully) I won't buy any more until I've checked them all off. 

Basically, The Book Challenge 2014 is going to consist of me adding each book I read to the list on The Book Challenge page (at the top of my blog), and also posting about what I need to read and noting my progress on that particular list. This probably won't be interesting to some of you, but I know there are some fellow book lovers out there, and if you have anything similar to this please link me in the comments! Feel free to join in with this, it doesn't matter that it's not the start of the year and please let me know if you do take part :)

  1. I'm trying to read as many as I can too! It started by challenging myself to read atleast 12 books this year, but since I was already at 7 by the end of last week I decided I'd challenge myself to see how many I can read total :D

  2. I'm aiming to read 50 books this year :) I use goodreads to keep track of it - they have a challenge section which makes it super easy --> https://www.goodreads.com/user/show/5752881-jasmine xx
