DISCUSSION ~ How do you decide on YEARLY READING GOALS?

We all know the drill by now, since it's something that's so "general" and.. world-wide known: setting yearly goals whenever the start of a new year is approaching. Those goals can include anything at all, but.. for us specifically? There's always some kind of reading goal involved. Reading goals that remain goals for a while, but eventually turn into a challenge because.. we always, always need to catch up on them. Then, after a while, the pressure comes into the mix because we really want to succeed and be able to say "I did it!" at the end of the year. But is it really all that realistic to put up a yearly goal without knowing what's going to happen throughout the year?

READING SOMETHING I SHOULD’VE READ YEARS AGO – Paranormalcy trilogy by Kiersten White

I took a while to read this trilogy, but I'm honestly.. happy to say I've both started and finished all three books in a little over a month's time! I've had these for quite some time now and, because I'm very interested in Kiersten White's The Conqueror's Saga, decided to finally give them a shot! But did I like them? Or do I wish I hadn't read them at all?
