I’ve set quite a few goals this year. With finishing my book, opening a new handmade shop, and blogging more I figured why not add something else to the mix. Bring on the reading challenges!
The first one I signed up for is the Goodreads 2015 reading challenge. I read 40 books last year, so I figured I’d up it a tad. This year my goal is to read 45 books.
The goal of this challenge is to choose a decade (and up to five different genres) then read a book from each year in that decade. I chose the ’80s, of course. :)
1980s – Mystery, Sci-Fi, Horror, Fantasy
Possible list of titles:
- 1980 – Rage of Angels by Sidney Sheldon (Mystery)
- 1981 – If There Be Thorns by VC Andrews (Horror)
- 1982 – A is for Alibi by Sue Grafton (Mystery)
- 1983 – The Witches by Roald Dahl (Fantasy)
- 1984 – The Last Starfighter by Alan Dean Foster (Sci-Fi)
- 1985 – The Castle in the Attic by Elizabeth Winthrop (Fantasy)
- 1986 – Chain Letter by Christopher Pike (Horror)
- 1987 – Swept Away: Pirate Moon by Eileen Goudge (Sci-Fi)
- 1988 – Cabal by Clive Barker (Horror)
- 1989 – Nancy Drew: The Broken Anchor by Carolyn Keene (Mystery)
I read three of these books in the ’80s (If There Be Thorns, Chain Letter, and Cabal), but that was a long time ago. Funny that these are all horror books. I didn’t realize I read so many horror/scary books as a kid. I guess I included those in with my mysteries! Hmmm, says a lot. :) I can’t wait to re-read them and see if I feel the same about them the second time around.
