Just a very quick update here. I just completed my GoodReads 2015 Reading Challenge of 51 books! I finished Queen of Shadows last night, and how fitting that that would be the last book for this challenge. (by the way, Queen of Shadows is amazing, utterly brilliant, and I was a sobbing mess for more than 25% of it – I still have no idea how I’m going to review it…)
Now, back to the issue at hand, there are still 3 months to go on this year, and I have to admit that I get a thrill each time I see that bar in the book count go up just a bit, So… I’m thinking of upping the number, maybe to 75?! What do you guys think?

Wit proper motivation and discipline, you can totally do 75. 😄
It’s 8 books per month, it’s doable!
Definitely. (Especially when you got a lot of spare time.)
That would be able two books a week. I think you can do it! 🙂
LOL, I think so too
Congrats on completing your Goodreads challenge! I’m glad you loved Queen Of Shadows as well. 😀
and that book was… WOW!
You can add the number of books indeed but I have a different way. I usually sign up for two A-Z challenges at the beginning of the year. One for book titles and one for book authors. It’s fun and I feel really good when I complete those.
Sometimes it’s more fun to see how much you over reason your goal. 🙂 I prefer doing that.
that also sounds good…
I bet low this year because of writing and publishing my own books and I’m happy to say I’ve exceeded my guess by 15 books!
😀 that’s great
Over read*** not reason
Wow, congrats! Meanwhile I’m still behind TT.TT I say totally try for 75 just to challenge yourself even more 😀
Congrats on finishing up early 🙂 You should definitely up the goal and keep going!
I finished mine, too. I may have completed it, but I love that it still keeps track. I’, at 103% of my goal now. So, you can raise your goal or just watch it tell you or even better than you planned at reading. 😉
i guess I’ll do that 😀 I like seeing the 100 something 😀
I know, it’s like you’re special for reading so much! 😉
You could just let it keep counting and not have the pressure of a goal. I like it when the number is higher than 100%.
I’m now at 102% 😀 it feels good!
It does, right? I would just leave it. Then you can still read 75 books, but the pressure isn’t there. And next year, you’ll put in a higher number right from the start.
yep, that sounds like a good plan 😀
Congrats! 😀 I’m sure you can do 75 🙂
I’ll try 😉
Congrats!! I just finished mine too and I am debating increasing the goal since it’s only September haha
😀 same problem then
Ps- YOU CAN TOTALLY DO 75!
Congratulations! you can totally do 75! Well, I’m 33 books behind and I hope I can catch up. 😀
I’ll aim for 75, but I won’t change the goal on goodreads, I’ll just see how far I can go. 33 is totally doable, right?
Yeah, I’m sure I can complete it and may be it’s going to be around December. 😀
QOS was amazing seriously!!! I can’t wait another 12 months!! I JUST CANT!
Congrats on finishing you Goodreads goal! 75 is totally doable! You still have 3 more months of the year. (Holy Shit there’s only 3 more months of 2015??!!?!?!?!?!! I’m Not Okay!)
yep, my reaction each time I look at the calendar… where has the year gone to?
YAAS Queen of Shadows! It’s been almost an entire day since I read it and fish I still feel like a puddle of feels! 😆
me too… not over it. Already had to go back and read a couple of Rowaelin scenes… just because…
Me too! Ugh, what is Sarah J Maas doing to us?!
i don’t know!!! I need book 5 NOW!!! and the 6th a couple of days from now… that’s not asking much, is it?
Oh, definitely not 😉 Chop chop Sarah J Maas!
