My Goodreads Reading Goal was to read 10 Books this year. I set it low because I’m often juggling reading and writing, and I’m lucky to read one book a month. This felt like a realistic goal. I’m please to confirm I read 16 books.

I managed to read 15 books. My reading increased over the summer when I took part in World Indie Warriors book bingo challenge.
