I hope to read 52 books this year! Last year I didn't meet my goal but hopefully this year I will! It's not a lot but it's important for me to read and stay intune with the literary world.

Well, I was really slow this year so I don't want to set me a big goal. I guess I'll say 35 books (I read around 25 this year and I don't know how many more I could read).

I read 39 books last year (my goal was 50), so this year I'm taking it down a notch and aiming for 40 books in 2016. I've already finished one, so I'm off to a good start.

01: Sanctuary Bay by Laura J Burns

02: The Bazaar Of Bad Dreams by Stephen King
03: Nantucket Sisters by Nancy Thayer
04: Petals On The Wind by Virginia Andrews

i have been so focused on film for work that my reading - esp for pleasure - has really taken a dip. i'll aim for just 20 this year but hope to surpass it.

35 was too ambitious for me in 2015. I'm aiming for a reasonable 25 books goal this year because I know I can only read when I don't have too much worries.

1. Micromegas by Voltaire
2. Cannibal by Didier Daeninckx (currently reading)

My goodread profile if you want to add me (I don't post reviews but I love checking what the other members are reading).
