I managed 15 books in 2013, so I'll go for 20 this year.

My favorites last year were:
- The Bed I Made by Lucie Whitehouse
- The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova
- Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn
- The Help by Kathryn Stockett
- The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger
- The Stepford Wives by Ira Levin

I only read 17 books last year, but at least that's more than I read in 2012 I'm aiming for at least 20 this year, maybe even 25
happy reading everyone!

My goal for 2013 was 40 books, I managed to read 50 but that's only due to the fact that most books weren't that large and I did the most part of my reading in the first half of the year and in august too. After school started in September I didn't manage to read that much. I'll aim for 40 this year too but I'm pretty sure I won't manage to read that much. Maybe I can count Gray's anatomy as 20 books, this book is massive!

I set my goal for 40 last year, and ended up reading 176 books, so....

I'm going to shoot for 75, because this is going to be a busy year for me, but I'm still a huge bookworm.

So far, finished 3, working on 3 more:
  1. American Pastoral by Philip Roth
  2. Alice's Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll
  3. Ooh La La!: French Women's Secrets to Feeling Beautiful Every Day by Jamie Cat Callan
  4. Daily Rituals: How Artists Work by Mason Currey
  5. The Inimitable Jeeves by P.G. Wodehouse
  6. The Perfectly Imperfect Home by Deborah Needleman

wow, you either read incredibly fast or spend the majority of your day reading (or both?) hats off!

I managed 24 last year, which is not bad. I'd like to get a few more this year, if possible. Maybe make 30. But I'll settle for 20 minimum again.
