What about that bookchallenge 2016 + goal 2017.

So another year has ended. Whew what a year it was… I won’t ramble about the usual shit 2016 brought to us.. But this year had lots of ups and downs for us…. My bf went back to work after being at home for over a year [back injury because of getting hit by a scooter a few year ago while working], I started night school, found a tiny job [still working on finding more hours somewhere]. We went to Curaçao in May and had a lovely time there =]

But the usual ups and downs were in this year too, relationship wise and financially. But we came out stronger than before and are still going on, even though this won’t be the last downs we face… If we can only remember that the ups are more important to remember than the downs..

When I’m talking about books, this year had its ups and downs too… I’m a bit on a buying ban, because my working hours are low and we have to pay for my education, which isn’t cheap… But I did manage to get my book haul a bit up because of my birthday in November… My biggest up was partly in my birthday book haul and in me completing my Goodreads Reading Challenge 2016. I had my goal set on reading a 100 books and I finished book number 110 on New Year’s Eve’. I wanted to finish two more, but hey, can’t have everything can I?

And here are my numbers for 2016:

And many, many, many, many more… But if I put all the covers here of books I want to read, I will get a number of books I will definitely not finish this year hahahaha…. Not all above are certain I will read this year, a number of them are certain though!! So anything you can recommend me? Anything interesting for your TBR??
