The Fifth Season

As part of my Hugo reading this year, I have been reading the first two books of The Broken Earth series by N. K. Jemisin, as the second one, The Obelisk Gate is nominated for a Hugo this year.

It is one of the most powerful and dark books I have read in a long time. It was a very hard read, but a good one.

Short stories of 2016

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!

Novels read in 2016

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!
