[sticky post] Reading Challenge 2013

Katniss

I'm going to try and update my Goodreads this year as well as keeping up my new book review blog. This year I'm aiming to read 200 new books, which I almost reached last year. The goal has been reduced to 150 as with university I have been unable to keep up with 17 books a month.

Ratings system:

five Excellent book, amazing writing, will recommend and re-read.
four Very good book, well-written, would recommend.
three Good book, good story-line and enjoyable to read.
two Average quality, many areas could be improved.
one Poorly written book, a waste of time to read it.

(Sometimes I may give a book a low rating if it didn't interest me, which does not necessarily mean it is badly written.)

New Year, New Journal

So, this is the first entry in the new journal I created a year and a half ago... even though I had had my old journal for four years, I didn't really use it much. This time I intend to keep up to date with communities and make some LJ friends. 

Personal entries will be FRIENDS ONLY. If you want me to add you as a friend you should comment here - be aware that I won't add anybody as a friend if they do not share more than one common interest.

Reading Challenge 2012

Imagination Is The Weapon (Hogwarts)



I don't use my Goodreads account much, but I decided to do this reading challenge so I could set myself a goal of reading 150 new books this year. I do read a lot but it's usually re-reading books I already own, and I won't be including re-reads in this list. At the end of the year I will review my favourites of the new books I have read in 2012.
