When I was much younger I was a voracious reader. Unfortunately when I went to college the amount of reading required killed any passion I had for reading for pleasure and I didn't for a while after. I have gotten back into books over the years but have recently made a conscious decision to spend more time reading. It helps that I now commute one hour each way to work = reading time!
Last year I made the same decision about reading and set myself a reading challenge on Goodreads of 12 books in the year, one per month. I failed with only 11 books So this year, with the new commute, I was more determined and set it at 15 for 2017. I'm at 11 now already and plan to surpass 15 before the end of the year.
My reading taste is usually fantasy fiction; historical fiction; young adult fiction and a few other random bits thrown in there.
I'll update as I finish each book
