35 Books Before 35

This Monday I am turning 33 and next to feeling old in comparison to some of you, I also find it interesting to look forward. While I am working on myself I don’t know which way I am going yet in the future.

Earlier this year I saw Michelle from Fit Kitty Mama do a 50 books before 50 goal for her next birthday. Seeing that made me realize that this is actually a pretty great idea. I decided to go for 35 though since that will give me 2 years to complete. As much as I read I very often switch things around a lot and this gives me a better chance at success.

So lets go.

  1. Happy Birthday!
    This is a really cool idea! You’ve got Only You Can Save Mankind on your list twice, so if you start with that you can cross off two right away 😋

  2. HAPPY EARLY BIRTHDAY! I hope there’s cake. :3 And you’re only three years older than I am, so we can be a pair of old women together! YES! Let the yelling at youngers to get off our grass commence!

    I love this idea! I’m a little sad by how many books on your 35 before 35 are also on my TBR. xD Maybe I should do a similar challenge at some point, because wow am I behind. Best of luck with your goal, and I hope all these upcoming reads are as wonderful as you are. 😉

  3. Zo’n toffe lijst met die verschillende categoriëen. Ik ga alvast meeduimen dat het er ook daadwerkelijk van komt om een deel van die boeken te lezen. Hier nog steeds geen tbr-lijstjes maar ik kan je wel alvast verklappen dat de kans groot is dat ik binnenkort een boek ga lezen dat ik als kerstcadeau voor een vriendin heb gekocht. Iemand moet dat proeflezen hé. Toch?
