Kathryn | 581 comments I'd think I'd like to read 50 books this year. I haven't kept track of books I read before starting to use Goodreads in October last year, so I'm not sure how many books I normally get through! I think one a week should be achievable, depending on events during the year... I am already participating in 3 challenges and group reads in other groups, so not sure whether I'll get around to taking part in any of these, although they sound interesting. Hopefully I'll be able to participate in some. I'm thinking the Les Mis group read might be good - I've read it once several years ago and would like to read it again since I've just seen the movie musical (and loved it!), but it's just so looonnnggg!!

So here is my list of books to read so far this year:


1. The Bite of the Mango by Mariatu Kamara The Bite of the Mango by Mariatu Kamara

2. The Beach House by Jane Green The Beach House by Jane Green

3. New release between 1/12/12 and 28/2/13 - TBA

4. Book from my TBR - TBA

5. Those in Peril by Wilbur Smith
