Despite the fact that I have not met my Goodreads challenge for the first time ever, I have read 105 books in total this year, have a look back at my top ten from 2 weeks ago to see which books made it into my top ten for the year... So next year I think I'll set my total a little lower so I don't end up 20 book short of my goal, 100 seems like a nice number to me!
In terms of events though, this year has been a triumph, I have been to so many amazing bookish events, author signings, events hosted by publishers and had several amazing authors come to school as well. I have written wrap ups from all of them and would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to all the fabulous authors and publishers involved, you have literally made my year!
Looking ahead to next year. I am about to start a new job, yet again, and so I really can't even predict how busy I am going to be with that. I am also still in the midst of a masters and so I'm going to have to give some time over to that (I still haven't written the essay that I dues 2 weeks today!) and I could possibly have another big move ahead of me which I can't talk about yet... But I hope that 2016 will be filled with as many amazing books as this year has been, there are some fab releases coming out in January that I can't wait for and I know I have some long flights booked that I will enjoy reading to my hearts content on (travelling alone has certain perks you know!)
Thank you to all of the people that have made my bookish year so enjoyable. The people that I get to meet because of my love of books are seriously amazing and I'm so lucky to be able to chat to you on twitter and in real life about all of the fabulous things we have and want to read.
Happy new year!
