Mumble Discussions: 50 books to read in 1 year

    mumbled "50 books to read in 1 year"

    on the 19th August I began the 50 books to read in 1 year challenge which is basically what it says on the tin- I have to read 50 books in 1 year. I invite anyone and everyone reading this to try it out and if you're not an avid reader and think 50 books is an unrealistic number go for 25 books or 10 books. So for 1 year I challenge you people to turn off the tv and get reading!

    I've read 46 this year so far :)
    In 2012, I read over 200 (but about 50 were manga or comic books so, does that count?)

    Your comment seems to have disappeared. But as an update - 72 books so far this year. Hopefully by the end of this year it'll be at 80. What was the last book you read?

    I made a typo on my reply so I deleted it, sorry.
    72 Books! Wow! That is amazing! How do you find the time?
    The last book I read was The Death Cure by James Dashner, It is the last bookin the The Maze Runner series and was really brilliant. What books do you recommend?

    Ooh, I just finished The Maze Runner yesterday. I think I managed that many by reading about 2 books a week. I try to aim for a book a day during the holidays.
    Well, if you want dystopia recs then some of my favourites are The 5th Wave, the Gone series, Penryn and the End of Days, the Chemical Garden Trilogy, and the Legend trilogy.

    I tried Gone and I enjoyed it but not enough to pick up the second book which sounds really bad I know. I read About the Legends series and really liked the sound of them but I never read it, but now I will defiantly give it a shot.
