I didn’t quite make last years challenge of 100 Short stories of 2015, I did manage to read 59 short stories last year. So this year the challenge is a more manageable #50shortstoriesin2016. I noticed last year then I could see that I couldn’t reach the goal I kind of stopped reading short stories, and that definitely wasn’t the plan.
Edit 19/8 16: I have just decided to raise my goal to 100 anyway, as I have read 56 stories by now, so there should be a good chance of me making it the goal.
If you want to see the specific stories read this year you can see them on GoodReads. Here you can also see my mini-reviews and star ratings of the individual stories. Here I however got the stats! Because I love stats! All the stats!

You can see a list of the books I have read this year on GoodReads where I keep track of what I am reading throughout the year. You are welcome to friend me there, but please leave a note and explain you found me through here 🙂
My reading goals for this year is: 50 novels. Within those I want to read more more non-american authors. I want to read at least 10 books by people of color because my reading this has been super white. I want to read books about non-straight characters. I will also be reading books in series I already started as well as books for the book club I am in, where it isn’t me doing the book picks.
And now for the fun part! Stats!

I don’t know about you, but I like stats! Especially reading stats, so once again I decided to keep a close eye on what I am reading this year. At the end of the year I will review what I have read and compare that to my reading goals for this year.
My goals are: 50 novels, 100 short stories, all the Hugo nominated novels and 2 classic works of fantasy or science fiction.

Because of my enjoyment of last year’s challenge 100 Short Stories in 2014 I decided to do the same challenge this year. Learning from last year I decided to set up the stats post right away, so I don’t have to go back halfway through the year and catalog 50 stories. This is one of those post that is mostly for my own amusement, but if you want to take a look, you are very welcome. I will link to my reviews of the stories so hopefully it can serve as an inspiration list as well.

It is the last day of the year and that means that it is time to look back on the year and reflect a bit. I will do two posts today this one that mostly deals with numbers and goals and stuff like that and another that looks at the stories I really enjoyed this year.

This year I have decided to keep a closer tap on the stats of what I am reading. Who is writing it, who are the protagonists, what genres am I reading etc. I will keep this post up to date and put a link in the menu. In the start of the year it probably isn’t very interesting but I hope it will be interesting (at least for me) to see how t develops over the year. Comics are only included on the author list and on the graph with type of work, because I simply read too many. Perhaps I will do a separate post on the comics.
