Goodreads Reading Challenge

Hello my lovely followers,

If you’ve meandered around Tabytha’s Universe, you will know that I like to read; that’s what this post is all about – what I’ve read this year. 😉

As some of you may also already know, I’ve been busy working through a professional qualification this year (as I type this, I’ve got my fingers crossed hoping that I have passed my final assessment and thus am a qualified level 3 teaching assistant – I won’t find out until mid-January) so I’ve haven’t had my nose stuck in my Kindle as much as usual this year, although I have read many teaching related articles and books, however, my point is, I signed up to the 2016 Reading Challenge on Goodreads back at the beginning of the year and set my reading goal to a paltry one book a month. Easy, I thought, I can read 12 books with my eyes shut (I think there’s a joke in there about audio books) but as it turned out my research and assignments keep me busier that I had expected!

faery-red-lily-bye-for-now1111Having said that, I feel that Fate has been on my side! I have been very lucky as my friend, and amazing romance author, Mandy Baggot has released two books this year – thank you Mandy for helping with my reading goal. Lol!

So, finally with just a couple of weeks to spare, I managed to complete the Goodreads 2016 Reading Challenge and have read 12 books this year. I thought you might like to see which ones they were…

A note on the Goodread’s Star Rating system:

1star = I did not like it

2star = It was OK

3star = I liked it

4star = I really liked it

5star = I loved it!
