The 2016 Goodreads youwillneverbeasawesomeaslastyear Challenge.

So the year from August 2014 to August 2015 was great, book-wise. I buckled down and read my way through a literal world of books. From Japanese authors (translated of course) to ones from my own country Sri Lanka I read like the world was ending the next day. I was unstoppable. So when people tell me, upon hearing that I took a gap year and stayed at home, “That’s the move” or “That must have been so amazing” because other people usually work during that time, I completely agree with them and nod sagely. Yes the gap year was amazing and yes it was the move.

Between January 2015 and September 2015, I read 42 books. Before that, from August 2014 to January 2015, I’m pretty sure I read at least 10. So that’s a solid 52 books in a year. I mean I’m not bragging here but that’s one of my proudest achievements yet.

But then college intervened and while I get the whole ‘college is good for your future’ and ‘college is important in your life to being average and normal’ schools of though in life, college IS interfering in my book reading. Since coming to college last Fall (September 2015) I’ve read two new books. TWO. JUST. Two.

I know.

Which is why as I’m looking at the 2016 Goodreads Reading Challenge, I’m sad. Sad that I’m going to have to read less books than last year and above all, publicly accept it and announce it. I could of course not do the reading challenge but I’ve got to use Goodreads for SOMETHING now that I’m on it so might as well.

So what’s my challenge this year?
