Goodreads Book Challenge

So, for those of you who don’t know, at the start of every year, Goodreads gives you the option to set yourself a challenge to see how many books you can read in a year. I set myself a goal of 70.


So, here’s my (long) list of all the books I’ve read to do the challenge this year:

  • Little Darlings by Jacqueline Wilson A Game of Thrones by George R.R. MartinThe Fiery Heart by Richelle MeadThe Mystery of Mercy Close by Marian KeyesWhat's Left of Me by Kat ZhangThe Indigo Spell by Richelle MeadSadie by Jane ElliottThe Golden Lily by Richelle MeadBloodlines by Richelle MeadThe Lost Prince by Julie KagawaThe Iron Knight by Julie KagawaThe Iron Queen by Julie KagawaGeim by Anders de la MotteChocolat by Joanne HarrisThe Boy Next Door by Meg CabotThe Brightest Star in the Sky by Marian KeyesI Heart New York by Lindsey KelkOne Hundred Names by Cecelia AhernThe Declaration by Gemma MalleyExposure by Mal PeetTrue to Both My Selves by Katrin FitzHerbertLock and Key by Sarah DessenAllegiant by Veronica RothLong Walk to Freedom by Nelson MandelaForbidden by Syrie JamesTwo Brothers by Ben EltonDaughter of Smoke & Bone by Laini TaylorThe Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen ChboskyBoys Don't Cry by Malorie BlackmanThe Book of Spells by Kate BrianBefore I Fall by Lauren OliverTuck Everlasting by Natalie BabbittHarry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by J.K.

 The Stand Outs

Much Ado About Nothing by William Shakespeare. I had to read this for school, but it was just so far out of my comfort zone I’m still proud I read it

Long Walk to Freedom by Nelson Mandela. I think this is the longest book I’ve ever read. I mean, he was 90 when he died! And he did a lot of stuff! But I read it all, and it was so beautiful and inspiring

The Selection by Kiera Cass. This is one of the best books I’ve read all year. America was so awesome, and Maxon was perfect. I then binge read the trilogy and novellas

Two Brothers by Ben Elton. I love historical fiction, and this is one of the best war books I’ve ever read. There aren’t enough words to express how much I recommend it

Bloodlines series by Richelle Mead. I didn’t realise I’d only discovered the series this year! How did I ever survive without this much Adrian in my life?

I also delved into the popular books, something I often avoid. Perks of Being a Wallflower, Percy Jackson, Obsidian, Before I Fall… Am I a cool nerd now?

So there you go, my completed Goodreads challenge! How are you all going with yours? What do you think of my book choices? Are there any on there I haven’t reviewed that you want to know my thoughts on? Let me know!



I was a book blogger for a while, and I now blog about every little thing in life I can think of. Bear with me while I try all these new posts out... I'm a New Zealand teen who gets angry about the world (but not angry enough for tumblr). I like to capture the world through photos and words, and read in all the moments in nz-squadbetween. I have an overwhelming desire to see every corner of the world I possibly can, and hug the people I love in all those corners. I can't do make up to save myself, and you're more likely to find me buying matching stationary than matching clothes. My nerd hobbies include a new found love of the Avengers, reading YA, watching Game of Thrones, How I Met Your Mother, and every vlogger I can find, and being the last person on the music bandwagons. I have big plans for the rest of my life, including university, teaching, travelling, and having an army of puppies. I plan to blog every second of it!
