My deep love of books

I love books. A lot. More than I probably should. I take that back actually. There is no way that you can love books too much.
I have to always have a book on the go to read, otherwise I feel quite lost. This year I set myself the challenge of reading 100 books, because I'm one of those weird people who likes to and actually does keep track of the books they read. I use Goodreads to keep track of my books, but I also write them down in a little notebook, which I've been doing for far longer than I knew Goodreads existed!

2013 Reading Challenge

Emma has read 78 books toward a goal of 100 books.

Anyway, here is a bunch of books I've read/re-read recently, have you read any of these? Are any of them a favourite of yours? Do you have any books that you would recommend? (I read pretty much anything, including the backs of cereal packets)

  1. Don't worry, I love books too - ALOT! I've read quite a few of the ones above and there are some on my to read list.

    Loved the host - the story of it doesn't sound to good but when you actually read it its amazing, I loved it.

    Dying to read time travellers wife!

    1. Thank-you so much, this is a lovely comment. I'm honestly a bit afraid to review books, because I don't know how to without spoilers or just giving all of the books 5 stars!!

  2. Sorry if you get this twice - I had problems logging in! I absolutely love Harry Potter and have read them all a million times! You've probably read these but I also love the Hunger Games and Divergent trilogies (still to read Allegiant though). Throne of Glass by Sarah J Maas is amazing as is pretty much anything by Kristin Cashore. If you'll excuse a bit of shameless self-promotion there are a few books on my very, very new blog you might like! Good luck with the Goodreads challenge! I'm doing that too but you're well ahead of me!

    1. I haven't read Throne of Glass or anything by Kristin Cashore, so I'll be sure to check them out :) Good luck with your goodreads challenge too!!

  3. the only ones on the list that I have read are the harry potter series, which I liked a lot. I don't read much ya books though but 'the fault in our stars,' is on my reading list.

    a book I would recommend is 'postcards from a dead girl' by kirk farber - it is one of my most favorite books. I do recommend it if you're into reading quirky characters - it's quite funny and a quick read. I really liked farber's writing style too. check it out when you get a chance.

    have a great day.

    1. I'll be sure to check out those books, I'll put them on my ever increasing to-read list. Thank-you :)


Thank-you very much for commenting, you just brightened my day. <3
