Ketty (bowsandbooks) | 247 comments Last year, I started my yearly goal with twenty books, I ended the year with over forty, and only fifteen of them of them ended up being comics. This year, I have decided to start a little higher...thirty-five, but my catch is I won't be counting any comics I choose to read towards it. I wanted to go forty, but I know I have a lot of large books on my list, so we will see how this goes.

I am crossing fingers for forty (I want to make a dent in my bookshelf) but I will be happy with less.

Sounds great Keturah (I am counting graphic novels though lol)! Congratulations on reaching and surpassing your goal this year & good luck for next year! May you find some gems along the way!

Rachael (allons-y-bookworm) | 2973 comments Good luck with your reading challenge. I'm not much of a comic book reader but I'm always interested to know which comics other like. Have you got a favourite?

lol this year I felt like a comic that I could read in 15 minutes felt like cheating when it came to my goal. So I opted to just put it on the side and see where it goes.

I really love The Walking Dead, it is gory and the stories are good. Last year I got into the My Little Pony comics, kind of a huge jump from TWD to MLP but it's fun. One series I want to read this coming year is Sister of Sorrow.
