Update: My 2014 Goodreads Reading Challenge

Thursday, 20 March 2014
In 2012 I managed to beat my target of 150 books by reading 170! I was quite impressed with that but started 2014 with a smaller target of 52. The reason being is I felt I was rushing books trying to meet my target rather than reading at a manageable pace that I was comfortable with and so a smaller target means I can take my time with books rather than feeling I need to rush to meet a target. 

As of March 20th I have read 20 of 52 books and they are listed below:

Matt Hilton - Dead Fall 3/5
THE best book of 2014
Matt Hilton - Dead Men's Harvest 5/5
Matt Hilton - No Going Back 4/5
Helen Forrester - Liverpool Daisy 5/5
Harry Bowling - Tuppence to Tooley Street 5/5
Harry Bowling - Paragon Place 4/5
James Patterson & Mark Sullivan - Private L.A. 4/5
Jackie Collins - Lovers & Players 5/5
                             Kimberley Chambers - Payback 5/5
Luke Delaney - The Keeper 5/5
Mandasue Heller - Respect 3/5
Luke Delaney - The Network 5/5
Luca Veste - Dead Gone 4/5
Tim Weaver - Vanished 5/5
Chris Carter - The Death Sculptor 5/5
Ali McNamara - Step Back In Time 5/5
Tim Weaver - Never Coming Back 5/5
Leah Giarratano - Voodoo Doll 5/5
James Patterson & Maxine Paetro - Unlucky 13 5/5

So overall a successful start to the year and some absolutely fantastic books read so far. I will edit this post with links to reviews if/when they are written.

  1. That's actually a really great idea, starting with a smaller goal. Once I see that I'm behind so many books it does the opposite of motivating me. I always want to read more than I did the previous year but sometimes that isn't possible. I may just have to go change my goal now ;)
