2016 Mid Year Review


download (2)

One thing I’m so proud of is that myself and my husband have been marries 8 months and we’ve been having a brilliant time. The last 8 months has been so happy and jam packed full of exciting things.

I’ve seen a good load of my fellow bloggers do mid year reviews and I just thought it was a great idea to see where we’re at half way through the year. I’m new at the book blogger thing and I’m just getting used to all of this. I’m on wordpress since the end of March and I was very nervous about the changeover. I’d previously had a blog on Blogger for beauty and food with some books thrown in and the start of this year I thought to myself its time to get into a book blog as I read so much and because I work in libraries I was getting a good few Arcs and I thought I needed to share with people my thoughts. I know there’s people out there that judge what type of books you read. They judge what type of person you are from what you read and that put me off this blog for awhile. Then  I thought to myself why let small minded people like that get to me! I’ve been full throttle and I’m proud of myself how far I’ve come in such a short time!

So Far in 2016 I’ve read 58 books, Which total at 11304 Pages. My challenge on Goodreads this year is to read 80 books. I know that I’ll read more then that at this stage of the game. Last year I read 97 books.

So Far from March 23rd to July 6th 2016
