My goal is to read at least 12, one per month. Between the movie challenge and all the tv shows I watch, I think that´s a reasonable amount I can accomplished... as opposed to the 5 I read last year :/

Just the year I finally decided to take part in the 50 books challenge it's gone! I like the change though, I think it's a great idea to have a thread where people can set their own challenge.
I'll try to read 30 books in 2013. I'm about to start La vérité sur l'affaire Harry Quebert by Joël Dicker.

last year I finished a total of 24 books, so my challenge this year is to read 30

Let's begin, God bless me and my books

1. Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn - I've left a very very brief review in review thread. I thought it would be different, what a finale.

Curently reading:
The Princess Diaries by Meg Cabot
Mrs. Dalloway by Virginia Woolf

I decided to have a different challenge this year. Besides regular reads, once a month I'll be randomly (withe the help of random.org) choosing a book from my to read list and read it. I just feel like a need something new and besides that, my TBR list is HUGE and I never get to the point when I actually start reading books from there.

^please, please, please tell me WDYT of The Miseducation of Cameron Post? I've bought it just few days after it was published (i guess about a year ago) and I started reading it like trice but I've never finished it . I think I got to page 60 afterall but I'm still not sure if I have to go on and if it's worth reading.

1. Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn
2. The Princess Diaries by Meg Cabot
- thank you YoninahAliza for reminding me of the book series, it was such a great read, I now love the book almost as much as the movies. I'd like to read the other books from the series.

^ I loved it! After the first hundred pages or so, I honestly didn't know how I felt. But when I finally finished (in only two days) I just wanted it to keep going! It really is one of those books that stays with you afterward.

- I expected it to be much more interesting. I wasn't good, it wasn't bad.
4. Princess in the Spotlight by Meg Cabot - even better than the first book, couldn't put it down.


Curently reading:
Saving Grace by Darlene Ryan
Before I Go To Sleep by S.J. Watson
