my goal for this year is to read 30 books and to fewer young adult novels, i got really sick of those last year.
i also want to try to finish all the books i've started reading (around 10) and after that only read one book at a time. AND write a review for each book (although i'm sh*tty at that)

1. Angelfall by Susan Ee
2. Gone girl by Gillian Flynn

3. Life of Pi by Yann Martel

I'm aiming for 20 books (at least 10 of which have to be modern ). I am not a huge fan of contemporary novels. I like Zadie Smith, Ian McEwan, and a lot of the African (often by way of Europe) novelists, but otherwise pfftt. Give me Jane Eyre any day. Speaking of which, I'm not going to count my annual re-read of Jane Eyre among my 20. So 20 new books.

So far:

I'm almost finished with Beloved, which is contemporary, though still relatively old. And I couldn't wait to start Anna Karenina and I'm like 57 pages in already. I should probably finish Beloved though.

1. Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn
2. The Princess Diaries by Meg Cabot
3. Mrs. Dalloway by Virginia Woolf
4. Princess in the Spotlight by Meg Cabot
5. The Magic Mountain by Thomas Mann
- it was an interesting and worth reading book but sometimes it was getting repetetive and boring.
6. Saving Grace by Darlene Ryan - nice plot, I would like it to be longer though. It's written for readers with lower reading ability so I guess it's fine.
7. Before I Go To Sleep by S.J. Watson - well, well, well... it was good debut but it was predictable, very annoying at parts and a little bit slow.

Curently reading:
Unbearable Lightness: A Story of Loss and Gain by Portia de Rossi

last year I started off well but then I had to do so much reading and writing for my MA that I fell off the wagon only read 8 books and started reading 3 more but didn't finish

this year I'm aiming for 25 books (but even 20 would be great :p ) and just finished my first one:

1. Escape from Camp 14 by Blaine Harden - story about first North Korean who was born in a work camp to escape both the camp and the country... incredibly shocking that such camps (hardly any food, violence, torture, hard work) still exist in the 21st century! highly recommended for anyone who's interested in North Korea.

that's been on my to-read list for ages, glad to hear you'd recommend it. i really want to read more non-fiction books this year and this sounds really interesting.
first i need to finish the 10 books i'm currently reading, though
