Seeing as I’d already said to myself, “I’d like to read more books than last year”, I thought I might as well join in with the “Outdo Yourself” reading challenge from The Book Vixen, because I’ll be doing it anyway.

Last year I read 18 books in total, and that is with some pretty big gaps along the way. Now, for me, that’s quite a lot. So I figured that if I could manage that many last year, which is also the most books I’ve ever read in one year, surely I can read more this year? To be safe, because I am a slow reader and sometimes get all “OOH SHINEY” and start doing something else, I will go with the “Getting my heart rate up” level which is to read 1-5 more books than last year, because that’s almost doable for me. Let’s see how it goes!

The easiest way to keep an eye on how many I’ll be reading is to number the books as I go. I’ll make an effort to post my thoughts on each book I read here, though even if I miss the odd one, I’ve been pretty diligent at reviewing every book I read on Goodreads, even if only briefly. I’ll also put up a page purely there to list each book and number them with however many starts I give it (1-5).
