I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas! As we are coming up to the New Year I wanted to do a post on the books I read in 2018. This year I had set my Goodreads Goal at 50… and well I read 19. But even though I am considerably out on achieving that goal, I am taking this as a major win.

Aloha Book Lovers!
Today I am coming at you with the Goodreads Book Tag. It feels like forever since I’ve done a tag and the wonderful Kat @lifeandotherdisasters tagged me to do this. This is one I have never heard of before so I was so excited to give it a go.
What was the last book you marked as ‘read’?
The last book I marked as read on Goodreads was Follow Me by Sara Shepard. This is book 2 following The Amateurs and it focuses on a group of teens helping to solve murders. Its one I’ve been hooked on and I will have my review up soon.
My Spoiler Free Review of The Amataurs (Book 1) Can Be Found Here.

Happy New Year fellow Book lovers!
I’ve been thinking lately how I don’t really set New Year’s Resolutions but this year something has been nagging at me to set them for my reading and blogging goals. The end of 2016 and start of 2017 were hard times and 2017 was a year of so many exciting things for me such as graduating from university. I hold a BA in English Literature now. I got accepted onto two masters programme’s and chose to do an MA in English Studies. My blog reached 500 followers, I started receiving Physical Arcs, I got invited to go down to London to an exhibition as part of a blogger/press thing. (I couldn’t go but the opportunity was still amazing)
But the year was also really hard, my anxiety gave me so many hurdles I had to try jump over. My dad, brother and sister all had health scares. We are losing another love one who is fighting a battle with cancer. 2018 will be another hard year but I’m pledging here and now that i’m also going to make sure it’s an amazing one.
So here are my 2018 Reading and Blogging specific goals:

So today I wanted to do a catch up on my reading challenge and year, inspired because of my birthday. I turned 23 today… Eeek I’m so old I know. Let’s pretend I’m only 18 please?
So I’m another year older (sadly) and I was thinking, how has my life changed since my last birthday? Well I got my Upper Second Class Bachelors Degree in English Literature, I got onto two masters courses with me starting one in English Studies next week and my blog reached 435 followers! Of course mixed in with all the good things, there has been some really tough times this year from deaths, to mental health issues etc but right now I’m sat writing this and thinking wow I am so lucky and I cannot believe how well my year has gone in reality. The friends I have made whilst blogging feel like friends I have known my whole life. Even though they live in Australia, France or even South Africa and me in United Kingdom it feels like we aren’t too far away. I owe this blog so much, it has helped me in so many ways and my love for reading and books has increased so much more. Continue reading “Birthday Post | Goodreads Challenge | Year Update |”
Today I am coming at you with a discussion post on Keeping Track of our reading. We can track reading in a number of ways from writing it down in a notebook to using Goodreads. But does tracking our reading ever take away from our experience?
