2015 Reading Challenge Book List

I love to read, I just don’t have make the time to do it like I should. One of my goals this year is to read a minimum of 40 books (all of which must be over 100 pages) and make time to read for at least an hour per day. Apparently the “reading challenge” is a popular resolution this tear because even Mark Zuckerberg made it one of his resolutions. He dedicated a whole page to the challenge on Facebook where everyone can read the book he’s reading and discuss it.

Last year I tried to do the reading challenge on GoodReads, but I started way too late in the year and only ended up reading four books. But that’s better than what I’ve done in the past! This year I’m starting early with the challenge and even made up a reading list with 85 books, more than what I plan on reading, but I’m hoping that will inspire me to reach and exceed my 40 book goal.

So what am I reading this year? Here’s my list:

These are really in no particular order. In fact, these are all in a different order on my GoodReads queue. Although the first three to four books on the list are in the order they will be read. I have over 1,000 books on my kindle queue most of which I got for free or through the Kindle Unlimited program (which I highly recommend if you love to read!). I may end up switching the list around, but every time I start a new book, I’ll post it on my Facebook page in case anyone wants to read along and discuss the books with me (which I highly encourage!!).

I also joined a group on GoodReads that reads predominantly Dystopian Fiction which has become my new favorite genre. The third book on the list above is actually the sequel to the book that got me hooked on dystopian fiction in the first place.

If you’re on GoodReads, please “friend me.” I’d love to know what everyone is reading! Keep an eye on the Etsy shop too, I’ll be adding crochet Kindle, iPad and tablet covers soon!! Gotta have something to put my Kindle in!!
