Reading Challenge // 12 Books To Read In 2016

Every year it’s the same old story. I take a look at my bookshelves and realize how many book I wanted to read but couldn’t thanks to lack of time… I wonder where is McGonagall when you most need her to give you a time-turner.

So I sat down and picked up 12 books I desperately need to read by the end of 2016. Of course the list of books I wanna read is longer than 12 but there is no need to put more pressure on myself. And as most of you might have guessed, I went for 12 due to the 12 months of a year. My plan? Read one each month. As you guys know I’m not good at following plans but the great thing about picking only 12 it’s that I believe I will have enough time to get to them, even if I don’t follow the plan, because I can compensate by, perhaps, reading two or three every other month.

Here is the list (Have you read any of them?):

I have another post like this about classics and both lists will constitute my reading challenges for 2016. At the end of 2014 I decided to make the A-Z reading challenge in 2015 and I’ve read a few of the titles I wrote down but not even half of them. I hope I can manage with these challenges next year because I will be a happy reader – well, I will be a happy reader reading whatever comes into my hands but it is always nice to achieve your goals, isn’t it?

I’m pretty sure this is gonna be my last post before Christmas so MERRY CHRISTMAS GUYS! I hope you enjoy your time and don’t stuffed yourself too much – although I think that’s pretty impossible during this time ;) 
Are you doing any reading challenges next year?

Vintage Classics: Brontë Series

Maybe you don’t know this about me but I collect different edition of Jane Eyre and when I learnt that Vintage was releasing the new Brontë series I just couldn’t say no. 

The 80th Anniversary Edition of Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier

I received this beautiful edition in the mail yesterday and I just couldn't not share it here. I read Rebecca last year and despite not writing a full review of it here on the blog, it became one of my all time favourites. Still today there are moments when I find myself thinking about the story and the characters. Du Maurier brings to life and incredible story and memorable characters and it's one of those books I'll recommend to anyone.

On the Come Up by Angie Thomas | 2021 Reads

  I enjoyed this because Thomas focuses mostly on the internal conflicts of the main character and how her decisions affect her and everybody around her and still deals with a lot of racial issues that Black (and Brown) young people have to deal with in the US, especially in poor neighbourhoods. Bri is a teen going through a difficult time. She can seem hot-headed, opinionated and, at times, selfish, but she is just trying to be herself, help those she loves and pursue her dreams of becoming a rapper. I was reminded though of why I rarely read YA contemporary fiction these days: one, dramatic teens (don't get me wrong, I get where they are coming from but still makes my eyes roll) and two, intentional lack of communication between adults and kids which drives me up the wall.
