2015 reading challenge
This year I read 24 books (out of a goal of 25).
You can view it here on Goodreads.

I read 24 books... out of which most were comics and mangas -_-" Not that I'm considering them lesser books, but I wanted to read 25 books, as I already read so many mangas that I don't count them.

To give you an idea, based on how many mangas I bought this year, removing those on my "to read" pile, I must have read over 200 mangas. Which is a good average for me. I've read more in my late teens, but less mid-twenties, now I'm slowly getting back into it.

But since I started reading comics more regularly, I like to keep track of those on goodreads (since I don't own them all, I borrow a lot from my BF) as well as getting recommendations from goodreads.

Book-wise, 2015 was a meagre year. I have considerably less time than in 2014, so I had to be more selective. I'm gald I discovered the "Lunar Chronicles" series, as well as more Rainbow Rowell. Jenny Han doesn't really do it for me anymore, and the Shadowhunter books are getting too lengthy for my liking (let's see if the TV series gets me in the mood again).

Apropos TV series, those distracted me from reading a lot, even though I consume them less than when I downloaded during my uni years (aka bored out of my skull and without TV/Netflix).

For 2016 I'm setting a new goal of 25 books, as well as completing my on-going shows (or at least all the Netflix available episodes). My to-read list is long enough (and incomplete) to keep me going for the next year.

What did you read this year that you feel was noteworthy? What are you expecting in 2016?
