Favorite Books of 2015

Hi there! 
This is another late post, the one that I've been debating whether to make or not. I read quite a lot of books last year. Some are re-reads, the others are either a book from my favorite authors or just a book from a new author to me. 
That being said, I decided to make a list of books, stand-alone and series, that I read and enjoyed so much last year. Here they are:

2016 Reading Goals

Hi there!
I know that this is a pretty late post. But since I just made up my mind to do these reading goals, I decided to share it here :)
My 2016 Reading Goals: 100 books
Just like last year. This is about 2 books a week. Still manageable for me :)
20.000 pages
Again, just like last year. Also manageable.
30 paperbacks
I purchased quite a lot of paperbacks last year and it's time for me to actually read them.
40 new authors
I really enjoyed last year's NARC that I wanted to discover more new authors this year.
5 new series
I love series. And there's a lot of them that I haven't read.
6 reviews in a month
This is the hardest one for me. But I wanted to do it, either in my blog, Goodreads, or my book journal. So that's it. A quite ambitios-yet-manageable reading goals for me. I hope I can achieve them this year :D

2015 Reading Challenge Wrap Up

Image
Hi there!
2015 was a very challenging year for me, and that includes reading. This is the first year I started my blog, the first year I joined multiple reading challenges, and so on. I'm very happy with everything that's happening to me, reading-wise, this year because I get to learn so many things. I learnt that I do have preferences of books that I wanted to read. I also have a way to either postponed a book or just force myself through it if I wanted to. It's the year of learning myself in terms of picking a book and read it. Or even trying to listen to it. It was fun!
