My Reading Challenge for 2015

Happy New Year to you all :o)

New year, new reading challenges. Yay! I tell myself EVERY single year to read more classics, or to read more books from the “100 you must read before you die” list and I never, EVER do it! As I’m aiming to read 125 books this year I thought I would dedicate 5 from the “classics / 100 you must read before you die” This year I decided that if I write them down  once read I can tick them off, hopefully it’ll help me stay on track. Here is what I’ll aim to read this year:

  1. Great Expectations – Charles Dickens (I have started and stopped this book more times than I care to remember I WILL FINISH IT!)
  2. Pride and Prejudice – Jane Austen
  3. Shadow of The Wind – Carlos Ruiz Zafon
  4. Memoirs of a Geisha – Arthur Golden
  5. The Great Gatsby – F. Scott Fitzgerald

As I already have ALL of these on my Kindle ready and waiting to be read I have NO excuses however I’ve not read one yet….So wish me luck.

What is your reading challenge for 2015?
Did you complete your 2014 one? I did and am super pleased with myself!

  1. I’ve yet to ever commit to a yearly reading goal other than to make sure I don’t neglect reading for pleasure just because I may have to do a lot of reading for work, which can be my biggest challenge. I love Great Expectations and Pride and Prejudice–haven’t read P & P in more years than I care to count, but as I’m big on rereading, I plan on reading that one again.

    • That is a good way to be Nadine, I don’t have to read for work, so all reading is a pleasure for me! I love setting myself challenges I’m not over hard on myself if I don’t complete them. I’m hoping I will at least enjoy P&P but I’ve tried so many times with Great Expectations I’m not sure I’ll ever enjoy it, I just want to finish it! Good for you, I may even re-read one book this year as I’m on a book buying ban too, I have a fair few already unread on my kindle though so we will see Lx
