100 in 365 Challenge # 2

Okay Y'all..
if I am at least one thing it is determined.
yes, I fell shy of my goal of hundred books in a twelve month period
you can look over my reading list by clicking here
or on the side bar
BUT
how many people can say they read even ten books in a year?
So my total books read of 54  is a good try I think.

Things I have learned

I read a lot of paranormal romance books
That is because the paranormal genre has always interested me
I like to believe that there is magic out there and sometimes with the good magic you got to the scary kind
I also love them because they all feature heroines that are
strong
fiesty
capable
fighters
....
yet deep down they are romantics
loyal
kind

These are things I am and things I long to be

I also noticed that I get a book from a series, sometimes not always the first one and then latch on
I go on to read any books I can order or get at the library
So that is why last year some of my series were read out of order.

because of this goal I joined a book club
this has helped me read books I never would have
and
then met some awesome ladies. I have a meeting tonight for July book.
I am excited


This will be really long for y'all to read in order to get to my list so I better cut this off.

Anyways.

Goals for August 2011- August 2012

1. READ 100 BOOKS( duh right?)
2. READ SERIES IN ORDER
3. IN ORDER TO REACH GOAL MUST READ AT LEAST 5 BOOKS A MONTH
(this makes it to where the months I am not in school or have time off I can read more, to reach it I actually need to read 8-9 books a month, I know that won't happen always)
4. READ MORE OF A VARIETY
( in the last few months I got more of a variety in there but for the majority it was romance, paranormal or paranormal romance. I want substance, truth, thrillers etc)
5. FINISH THE SERIES I STARTED LAST YEAR

I like your new goals!

I seriously could not get into the Anita Blake series. I stopped after book 3. Yes I suck.

My problem is, I like to buy new books without reading the ones I already own! I need to work on that!

Thanks!! I love her series into around book eight..where I had read. But I have randomly read a few through out the series and in between they go too....much...well sex.=) The weird sex and I just can only handle so much of that weird stuff. So I stopped reading, then picked up one a bit ago and it was lke the first few. Full of the fighting, strength and stuff I enjoyed. You made your goal of a 100 books right? I don't see how not.=)
