Summer Bucket List Tag!

August is just around the corner, which means there’s only a month before classes start up! What better way to celebrate the last third of the summer but with a bucket list tag?

2016 Book Bucket List: How did I do?

image

Towards the beginning of this year, I made a list of books that I wanted to get to this year (check out that post here). Half-way through the year in June I was looking back at my old posts to try and get some inspiration on what to write next. I made an update on how I was doing on my book bucket list and changed out a couple books because my interests had changed (check out that post here). Now, this is a post about how I actually did. Did I read a lot of books this year? Compared to last year, no. However, I had less time to read this year than I had last year.

The New Year is right around the corner, which means people are going to be making New Year’s Resolutions!

And even though I don’t make New Year’s Resolutions, I decided that it would be a good idea to make a list of books I want to read (and finish) before the end of 2016. I was going to pick out 10 books but instead chose 11, because who doesn’t like a good challenge?

Maybe a year from now I will look back at this list and see how I did.

Now on to the books!
