2016 Reading Challenge - 1/12 A Book Published This Year

I've set myself two reading challenges this year .....

The first is to beat last year's total of 35 books read to read 40 books this year

The second is to finish the 2016 Reading Challenge created by Modern Mrs. Darcy

1/12 - A book published this year

I downloaded this ebook from Netgalley The Grass Is Greener by Loretta Hill which was published by Random House Australia on 4 January 2016.

This was a perfect Summer holiday read and I recommend it to chick lit and rural romance fans and I give it 4/5 stars. You can read my full book review here.

Who else is up for a reading challenge this year?

It's such a great way to encourage and inspire you to pick up a different book genre, something you would never normally read, and give it a red hot go!

You can find Modern Mrs. Darcy's list of books for the challenge here.

I haven't pre-planned my reading list, I prefer to just wait and see what comes up over the year - between what my Book Club picks and what I find on Netgalley that I'd like to read and review

I'm sure I'll find the reading list a challenge ..... so let's do this!

What's on your reading list this year?

  1. This reading challenge sounds so, so fun! If I didn't have kids, I would so be up on it!! 40 books in one year is def. doable if you set your mind to it. I made a goal one year to read 2 books a month and it was a lot of fun. It got me back into reading, so I don't really set any goals for myself... but, I do read 1-2 books a month still!


    1. I've never done a reading challenge before and I think this one is very manageable the list isn't too long it's essentially one a month! I do most of my reading travelling to and from work, I don't read much at home although I might have to start to get through the 40 books. Cook books count towards the total right?! x
