Does That Count?

This year my Goodreads reading goal is 75 books. Right now, I’m sitting comfortably at 59 with no signs of slowing down. This puts me 6 books ahead according to Goodreads! I don’t really like to pay too much attention to that, though, because I don’t read at a very consistent pace. Sometimes I will read 4 books in a week for three weeks, and then a couple weeks off. It all depends.

But, I feel like I have to tell you guys that my Goodreads count includes novellas. And I kind of feel like this is cheating.

Last year, I read all of the Song of Ice and Fire series and ended the year at around 45 books. Although I hadn’t technically met my reading goal of 50 books, I didn’t feel unaccomplished. Have you ever read those books? THEY ARE GIGANTIC, AND AWESOME. You can’t not feel accomplished after finishing those bad boys.

But this year I have read quite a few novellas. I am currently in the middle of a novella series called Love and Decay by Rachel Higginson. I’m not going to lie, they are about zombies, and I LOVE THEM. Literally love and decay.

Anyway, I kind of sort of feel like reading a lot of novellas is cheating when it comes to my goal because of how adorably short they are. But I just can’t stop reading them.

But who am I kidding? This is my goal. Plus, I have already read more books by September than I did all of last year- and that is cool.

  1. I think the challenge is per book there is no mention in the terms and conditions about the length of book. If that were the case we should all be tracking the number of pages. Well done and congratulations on reading more this year than last!
