Collective book haul (March 2016)

Collective book haul (March 2016)

For 2016, I am aiming to read 50 books in one year. It is the first time I am joining the Goodreads reading challenge and right now I am still on track. One tactic to try and stay on track, is to have books I enjoy on my shelves ready for the taking. And since I’ve become interested in YA and High Fantasy novels lately, I decided to get a few. Well… a few… Once I got going these past few months there was no stopping it. I placed an order online, bought a few books in different book stores in my hometown AND got some books from friends. I am showing you all in the video after the cut.

How many books do you think I got?

But wait! Before you go watch the video, I have some exciting book news for you. At least it made me excited when I saw this in my inbox. On March 22nd, Jack Kerouac’s debut novel, The Town and the City will be released as an e-book for the first time. You can find more information about the book and where to get it once it releases by clicking here.

  1. I also took part in the Goodreads reading challenge for the first time, although my target is 30 books. I have read 3 so far.. And am currently on my 4th one which I bought recently (13 Reasons Why).
    Good luck!

  2. Looks like a great haul! I finished The Golden Compass recently & am interested to see where this story goes.
    Idk the last book I bought for myself. I’m a big supporter of my local library system. There are several books I would like to add to my shelves though…
