2016 Reading Recap!

At the beginning of the year, I had no idea how much I’d actually end up reading as I knew this year I had my GCSEs which I would want to focus hard on and then would be starting sixth form in September and didn’t know how much time I would have. So I think I set my reading goal to 50 books at the beginning of the year, as read over 50 they year before.

And for the most part of the year, I was on track. But it was when it got to about September I started to fall behind. And then I was admitted to hospital and my reading pattern was all over the place, so I cut it down to 45 books.

And I managed it! I had given up all hopes on the 30th, as I had only ready 43 books and just wasn’t going to put the pressure on myself to try a complete it. And then I found two books I hadn’t actually added on my “Read” list for this year. (I’d read them in hospital where I  couldn’t update my goodreads and complete forgotten to do it when I came home!).

So 45 books it was. And here are the 45 books I read this year:
