Goodreads Reading Challenge 2017

Hi Guys!

How’s everyone doing? Did everyone had a good start of the year? My new year started from 3rd January because I completed all my deadlines on 2nd January.

One of my favorite things about the new year is Goodreads Reading Challenge. It is always fun to see how I did in the previous year and then setting the goal for the next year is always such a satisfying experience. Does anybody else feels the same?

This year my goal is to read 30 books. It is my usual number. I have been maintaining it from the last three years. The first time I set it to 30 it was quite a struggle to achieve but the following years I’d always read more than 30 books, maybe 31 or 37 like this year. 😀 Trail and error has proven 30 is what works well for me. I remember four years ago I set my goal to 50 books and that was the time I got back to reading after a long hiatus and it was such a struggle. I was almost annoyed by the end and that’s when I resolved to choose a practical goal over hating to read.

According to my goal, if I read 2.5 books a month, I will easily achieve it by December. The good thing is I am already done with two books this and am deciding what to read next. Can’t wait to read some really fun books this year. Not much of a contemporary lover but I am feeling serious contemporary and stand alone vibes this year. *excited*

How many books do you plan to read this year? What genre are you most excited about this year? Do let me know in the comments below! 🙂

Love,

May Wrap Up // Shortest One Ever

Novels.jpg

I read The Selection series by Kiera Cass throughout May. I am going to keep this wrap up as short as possible without giving much away because I plan to do a detailed review on the series because too many feels!! 😀 Also, if you haven’t read it yet, I would suggest read the synopsis for the first book only. Get the idea of the storyline and then let the novels take you through the journey.

I read all the five books and four novellas. (First Book ‘The Selection’ Synopsis Here)

The Selection #1 || Rating: 4/5

The Elite #2 || Rating: 5/5

The One #3 || Rating: 5/5

The next two books were based on a different character.

The Heir #4 || Rating: 3/5

The Crown #5 || Rating: 4/5

Novellas

The Queen #0.4 || Rating: 2/5

The Prince #0.5 || Rating: 1/5

The Guard #2.5 || Rating: 4/5

The Epilogue #3.1 (The bonus/second epilogue) || Rating: 5/5

I know I am missing one novella and some parts that are included in the Happily Forever book but I am not fond of novellas I realized so I might not really give them a go. Not right now at least.

And we are up to date. Hurrah!!! 😀 Now I will post reviews, tag and all my bookish feels!! 😀

Until next time,
