I know, I know – there’s still a little less than 3 days left in 2015.
Unfortunately, I also know that that just means my exams are that much closer, and that I can’t really afford to read anymore (at least, not for leisure) until they’re at least halfway done – so that just means I’ll have to do my round up now!
As you may (or may not) have seen on Goodreads, or Tumblr, I did manage to get to my reading goal of reading 150 books this year (considering that, originally, the goal was a mere 100 books, I guess you could say that’s quite something!
I had, however, also set myself the challenge of (hopefully) completing the Popsugar 2015 Reading Challenge – and here’s the final result for that one!
Unfortunately, I didn’t quite manage to get everything done but, hey, I did my best, and I actually didn’t do too shabby either!
