I’m taking a break from posting about my Halloween reads today because horror books seep into your subconscious and stay with you, I don’t want to rush any of the horror reads I have chosen, as I read primarily to enjoy myself and I completed my Goodreads challenge a few days ago and read the 170 books I pledged to read in 2015, alas it was only a guide and it definitely does not mean I’m not reading more.

In fact I’m a little over my challenge now at 172 books and according to Goodreads 36 books ahead of schedule. So could potentially break the 200 books barrier this year.


My book choices in 2015 have differed in that I have been more selective about choosing titles I will enjoy and less tolerant with picking reads out of a sense of duty. I still haven’t got to read all the award winning books from last year that I put on my wishlist but I am excited about the books I have chosen to read over the next few months of 2015.

I am considering revising my review guidelines and perhaps doing away with review requests altogether but this is just at the pros and con stage, nothing I have decided for definite.

I am delighted to have completed my Goodreads challenges for three years in a row and look forward to 2016 anticipating many more books I will love.
