Dominique || Ragdollsandbooks (dominique-ragdollsandbooks) | 35 comments This is the space where I will plan all my goals for the year.

I'm planning to read 75 books in total - this is insane and I don't think I have ever done that!

So far I have read 78/75

Dominique || Ragdollsandbooks (dominique-ragdollsandbooks) | 35 comments Q1: The third challenge is a quarterly one and is the Must Read Books Challenge of 2018:

I will only read 3 books, because most of these are pretty hefty.

Message 5

This challenge was a fail as I only read 1 out of 3 books in the first quarter

I have read so many books by authors I liked. I think this is a trend I will simply continue without monitoring.

Dominique || Ragdollsandbooks (dominique-ragdollsandbooks) | 35 comments Another one of my own challenges will be to reread one book to every 10 books I read this year. I notice that I love certain books, but when I never pick them up I forget about them, so I want to remedy that.

Looking at my challenge, that means I'll reread at least 7 books this year.

1. Tokyo
2. A Thousand Splendid Suns
3. High Fidelity
4. The Gentleman's Guide to Vice and Virtue
5. The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time
6. Wuthering Heights
7. Jane Eyre

So far I have read 7/7


Challenge completed!
