That was my reading year in review. I’m pretty proud of how many books I managed to read, however next year I aim to read more of the books that I actually want to read and enjoy them, rather than simply reading them due to the pressure of feeling as if I ‘need’ to read alot of books.

Also, as you can see, my reading really heavily slowed after June, which I guess is both due to the demand of school and multiple reading slumps throughout the months of July-December. Reading slightly lost its enjoyment towards the second half of the year as I could never find something I truly wanted to read at the time. Hence why I’m going to try reading for the sole purpose of enjoyment in 2016.

Yeah that’s it,

Kate 🙂

  1. OMG Your bookshelf looks AMAZING! Wow I can’t stop looking it’s fab (I’m also jealous) That’s a lot of books 😀 do you recommend reading Vampire Academy? I’ve had it for like a year but I’m uncertain to pick it up. Also, what edition are your Harry Potter books? I’ve never seen that signature!
