Good Reads Reading Challenge 2015!

Hi There,

good reads

In 2015 I decided to take the Good Reads Reading Challenge. I simply went to www.goodreads.com and entered the amount of books I wanted to read in 2015. I personally chose to try and read 40 books. I ended surpassing my goal and reading 43 which I am really proud of.

Most of the books I read were supernatural/ghost stories but I did throw a few Non-fictions and chick-lit in along the way.

I am going to set another reading goal again this year and I think I’m going to aim for 40 books again. I’m not going to increase it purely because I know that I am going to be focusing a lot of time into expanding my business this year.

For anyone who is interested I will list the books I read this year along with their genre and the marks out of 5 that I awarded them below:
