Goal CRUSHED!  

on November 24, 2015

At the beginning of the year I set a goal to read 30 books in 2015. Well, late last night or very early this morning (depends how you define 1:30am!) I finished my 30th book of the year.  Wohoo!  

Here’s what I’ve read (so far 😀) this year and the date I finished each book:

  25. Big Little Lies, by Liane Moriarty (October 25)
  26. This Is Happy, Camilla Gibb (October 26)
  27. The Last Anniversary, by Liane Moriarty (November 5)
  28. Carry On, by Rainbow Rowell (November 17)
  29. Dear Life, You Suck, by Scott Blagden (November 19)
  30. Leaving Time, by Jodi Picoult (November 24)

I enjoyed all of these books. Some more than others, for sure, but they were all pretty good.  That being said, a few of my favourites were The Book Thief, The Girl On The Train, Holy Cow, The Husband’s Secret, and Leaving Time. 

I started book 31 today – The Humans, by Matt Haig.  I either saw it on a “books to read list” or maybe on a bookstore’s “hot reads” display, and it looked interesting, so I borrowed it electronically from the library.  I’m only a few pages in, so don’t really have an opinion on it yet, but I’m looking forward to getting into the story. 

That being said, it’s time to head up to bed and read a few pages before I call it a night!

Have you read any of the books on my list?

Have any suggestions as to what book 32 should be?
