Claire  (claire6452) | 685 comments After two years of setting a goal of 100, and falling woefully short, I've decided to set a more attainable goal for 2018. Five books per month is doable, and I'm going to do it!

My plan is to hit my TBR list at least once a month, do the TBR twins as many months as possible, and actively work on a challenge or two.

No excuses this year, five per month no matter what!

Blagica  | 11916 comments A book is a dream that you hold in your hand. I hope that April brings you many more five star reads. Do you have a stand out book so far this year?

Beartown by Fredrik Backman

This was amazing!

Claire  (claire6452) | 685 comments The 16,000 party challenge is killing me! I have too many long books on it, PLUS my TBR twin read that I haven't started, PLUS I'm doing the group read.

Actually, I set myself this challenge, and I WILL get it done, and I'm reading some really great books. (This isn't really a complaint comment.)
