  • Grimm’s Fairy Stories by The Grimm Brothers – 66% complete
  • Allegiant (Divergent #3) – 53% complete
  • Happy by Derren Brown – 17% Complete

To Complete The Sherlock Holmes Collection
I’ve made absolutely no progress since September…  I just have The Case-Book of Sherlock Holmes left!

To Complete One Other Classic

I completed The Secret Garden back in January.

To Not Read ALL Picture Books
Less than 1/4 of them are picture books. I also don’t add ones that I re-read on here, just new ones, otherwise it would be a lot more!

To Read My Pre-ordered Books
Whoops. I was meant to read the two most recent Sarah J Maas books over summer. That really didn’t happen. I barely read anything. You can see the things that I did do here. Maybe next year…

To Get Above 70% On Netgallery.
This was definitely aiming too high! Last summer it was on 50% and it’s now on 65% so I’ve done quite well! I’ve eased off requesting as many books, so I might make it by the end of next year…

My targets for next year to come soon….
