Caitlin Since I'm just barely going to make it to my 100 book goal for this year, I'm thinking I'll only push that goal to 105 books for next year. I'll finally be done with school in March so with any luck I'll hit over that but I'd rather not stress myself out about it. I'm planning on diversifying what I read this year and read some recommendations from friends and family and some genres I don't read very often. I don't have my list of books ready but I'll update as I go.

Impressive goal Caitlin, with or without school! As to diversifying what you read, I have read some books I wouldn't have otherwise by joining some of the monthly group and buddy read. It's fun reading and discussing books together with fellow group members. Feel free to join if it is something that would interest you.
Wishing you the best of luck with your goal & happy reading!

Thanks Susy! I'm willing to admit that at least half of my reading tends to be graphic novels, which feels a bit like cheating. I'm definitely planning to check out some of the buddy reads and monthly challenges, this group seems to have a lot of good ones to choose from. I'm excited to get started!

I can understand your feeling but they ARE books and you’re certainly not the only one to read and count them in, so it’s definitely not cheating!
Cool, maybe we’ll get to read and discuss some interesting books together!
