My 2016 Book Goals!

Look it’s a late 2016 Book Goals List! This has been sitting in my draft for such a long time I almost forgot about it and honestly I just wanted to hit the Trash button! I’m still posting this and hopefully give me my much-needed inspiration.

* * * * *

the ultimate2016book goals

I knew I had a couple of unread books but I didn’t think that I had this much lying around. I’m not impressed with myself and this doesn’t go well with my current goal of becoming a minimalist.

The goal is to read all of the books listed below and write a review. If I like the book, it’s staying with me. If not, I’m selling it. I will write the reasons why I bought these books and hopefully motivate me to start reading it.


Going Postal – Terry Pratchett

Mike bought this for me…two years ago. I’m not much of a fan of Terry Pratchett and I’ve only read one book of his. I’m not too keen on reading this.

The Bourne Supremacy – Robert Ludlum

I bought the whole Bourne series set in a used bookstore before. The first one definitely did not disappoint me but I never got the chance to read this one. To be honest, I just can’t imagine the fight scenes when I’m reading it. Fun fact, the movie is so much different from the book. In my opinion, the book was better. I just wished I get to imagine the fight scenes clearly.

Trigger Warming/Unnatural Creatures – Neil Gaiman

I’m a big Neil Gaiman fan. I bought this because of my ultimate goal of buying all books by Neil.

A Wild Sheep Chase/Dance Dance Dance – Haruki Murakami

This was part of my 2015 Haruki Murakami Book Haul. LOL. Please let me like these.

One Hundred Years of Solitude – Gabriel Garcia Marquez

I think I bought this book when I was still in college. That’s roughly five years ago. I can’t remember why I bought this but I need to read this!

Yes Please – Amy Poehler

I read a review about this book and it got me curious so I bought it. I am currently reading this and it has a lot of quote-worthy lines! >> Review here! <<

Kafka On the Shore – Haruki Murakami

DONE! I think I need to read it a second time to appreciate it more. >> Review here! <<

This is What Happy Looks Like – Jennifer E. Smith

DONE! And sold all of my Jennifer E. Smith books. It was too young adult for me. Sorry. >> Review here! <<

I found a few more books lying around. -_-

Pygmy – Chuck Palahniuk

I honestly don’t think I’ll be reading this. I’ve had it for the longest time but I still haven’t been able to flip a page 😦

The Long Earth – Terry Pratchett  & Stephen Baxter

I’m reading this now but I just can’t seem to make any progress!

  1. I have the Yes, Please!, I remember reading it but never finished it, just few chapters in but I’d like to finish it soon. I’m really curious of Haruki Murakami’s works, have never read any books from him. By the way, if you don’t mind me asking, where do you sell your used books? I really want to discard most of my books. 🙂

    1. I’m not yet done with Yes, Please too! Medyo autobiography pala ang feel. I sell sa OLX, you’ll be amazed how fast turnaround is. Minsan a day lang tapos nabenta na yung books ko. 🙂

  2. I absolutely loved “One Hundred Years of Solitude”! Actually, I didn’t appreciate it the first time (I was maybe too young) but I was blown away the second time I read it. Hope you enjoy it!

  3. Good luck! One Hundred Years of Solitude is a long intense read so I recommend tackling some of the others first! I got stuck with it for aaaaages. Plus if you want a giggle (sort of) I wrote about Marquez in my latest book rap… Bronte
