Reading Challange

      I joined Goodreads this year. It sounds like something I should’ve done years ago, I know, but I wasn’t always a bookworm. In fact, I don’t consider myself to be a bookworm. I just like to absorb knowledge. I joined to keep track of all the books I wanted to read and to be exposed to different literature.

      I thought maybe for fun I would take part in the 2016 reading challenge. It asked me how many books would I like to read this year, and I had no clue. I didn’t know how many was too many or too less. I wanted to be realistic but also try to reach something noteworthy for myself.

      I settled at the number 20, only for the reason that the site asked me to list 20 books I’ve read to create a catalog of recommended books. I’m starting off fresh on Goodreads, meaning the only books on my ‘read’ section are the books I’ve read this year.


      I’m three books in and I’m currently working on my fourth. Here’s what I have read (In the order that I read them):

Farewell to Arms – Ernest Hemingway
Heart of Darkness – Joseph Conrad
Between The World and Me – Ta-Nehisi Coates

      I’m currently reading Midnight In Mexico by Alfredo Corchado. I’m open to suggestions if you would like to recommend a book.

      I will add Goodreads to my sidebar so you can keep track of what I’m currently reading, and follow my progress. Also, feel free to add me on Goodreads if you have one.

    1. I enjoyed it. It was my first time reading a Hemingway novel. It took awhile for me to get into it because the last book I read before Farewell to Arms was My Struggle by Karl Ove.
      Hemingway’s writing is so different from what I’m use to reading in other novels. His style was very minimalistic, he doesn’t go into overloaded detail about something. The writing reminded me of writing for a newspaper. In the way that you try to give the most information in the least amount of words.
