My reading list so far….

At the start of the year I decided to commit to the Goodreads reading challenge. You set a number of books yourself, and the website will tally your progress and lets you know how well you’re doing. A couple of my blogging friends have written in the last week or so listing what they’ve read so far and sometimes commenting on the books too. So I figured it was about time for me to do the same!

I set a goal of 40 books. Currently I’m 2 books behind, but I don’t think that will be hard to catch back up. I’m blaming my 2 week holiday and the Olympics…. 😀 So here goes:

  1. The Hunger Games – Suzanne Collins
  2. Catching Fire – Suzanne Collins
  3. Mockingjay – Suzanne Collins
  4. Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix – JK Rowling
  5. Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince – JK Rowling
  6. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – JK Rowling
  7. The Book of Lost Things – John Connolly
  8. The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake – Aimee Bender
  9. Lunch in Paris – Elizabeth Bard
  10. Moon over Soho – Ben Aaronovitch
  11. Happy Accidents – Jane Lynch
  12. The Woman in Black – Susan Hill
  13. On the Beach – Nevil Shute
  14. The Catcher in the Rye – JD Salinger
  15. Me Before You – Jojo Moyes
  16. My Dead Friend Sarah – Peter Rosch
  17. Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children – Ransom Riggs
  18. The Night Circus – Erin Morgenstern
  19. Mrs Frisby and the Rats of NIMH – Robert C O’Brien
  20. Never Let Me Go – Kazuo Ishiguro
  21. Witch Child – Celia Rees

I have marked in italics the books which I did not enjoy and would not recommend. Saying that, most of the books I have read have come highly recommended so they just weren’t my cup of tea – I have a very particular cup of tea.

I’m currently reading One Moment, One Morning by Sarah Rayner, which I’m struggling with. I found a mistake in the story fairly near the start which put me on the back foot with it, and the writing style is far more ‘chick-lit’ than I like to read. I’m persevering with it because I want to up my reading number! I have a few books lined up to read next, and I’m really looking forward to getting stuck in!
What are you reading and what are your all time favourite books to recommend?
