The Austere Academy

The Austere Academy By Lemony Snicket

I always start reading these with the best of intentions. After awhile I remember that I haven't finished these books and I start to wonder what happens next. So I pick up the next book and usually get through it fairly fast. But almost always without fail around the middle of these books I think "Nothing ever good happens to these poor kids. Why am I reading this?" I have been trying to get through this series for the past 5 to 8 years, and I have to say it has gotten worse since I have became a mother. Not the story, the story is very well written. I just know that nothing good has ever or will ever happen to these kids and it just baffles me that I keep reading. Has anyone else had this experience with these books?

Bye 2015. Hello 2016

So I was really close to completing my goal of 20 books in 2015. At the end of the year though I did feel a little burned out. So this year I am going to lower my goal for a couple reasons, I want read this year for the enjoyment of reading and not to try and read a lot; ( I hope that makes sense) I am going to try and get back to school this year too. So I see more textbook reading in my future than anything else. So my reading goal for 2016 is going to be 10 books. Also I found this fun reading challenge on facebook:

I think it would be fun to follow this as a guideline for this next years reading challenge. So I wish everyone a happy, healthy 2016.

Happy Reading! :D
