Reading Challenge 2015 - Done!! and to reading challenge 2016

If anyone close to me may knew that i don't read much and i don't even develop the habit of reading. Curiosity always stroked me whenever i noticed some people reading books while waiting for bus/train, or in those fancy cafes with fresh-brewed coffee displayed nicely on the table. Ken always encouraged me to read ever since we dated, i never took it seriously.

Last year..after stalking a few bloggers and influenced from Ken, i started to go on with my reading challenge. First ever reading challenge to finish 5 books in a year. 5 books are too little for some, but as a slow reader/newbies..I thought I was good with 5.

Fast forward into 2016, I finished 4.5 books last year..I didn't manage to finish the 0.5 before 2016 arrived but I finished the balance 2 days ago. Bravo to me!

I have so much feelings about reading novels. They gave me so much space and freedom to imagine the story lines and the characters in those stories. And I definitely felt satisfaction when I managed to finish till last pages. Felt like a winner! woo...
5 books read:

The Guest List by Melissa Hill
P.S. I Still Love You by Jenny Han
The Sweet Spot by Stephanie Evanovich
Big Girl Panties by Stephanie Evanovich
Hey Natalie Jean by Natalie Holbrook

This year - 2016, I set another reading challenge for myself.

6 books in a year! Each book every two months..*come on, I can do this..*

p.s. currently i'm starting with How To Fall In Love by Cecilia Ahern

Congrats on reaching your goal of reading 5 books in one year! That must've been hard! As much as I love to read, it's always hard to find time to sit and read when there seems like there's so much other things you could do! I hope you reach your goal of 6 books by the end of 2016 :)

be the plebeian

YOU GO! So awesome to hear that you managed to almost reach your goal; I've been such a slacker with reading these past few years. I used to read 1-2 books a week when I was super young (but then again, the books were MUCH shorter back then, haha).

Which one was your favorite?
