Comments: 

Quite a few graphic novels on this list, however several bigger adult books too.  Plus another contender for the top 5 books of the year.  Overall, there were good ratings all around on this list, but that also means many of the books don’t stand out from the rest. 

At this point I have bought more unread books and haven’t really wanted to read any of the previous unread books on my shelves at present (but I still want to read them and not give them away) so I doubt I will accomplish the goal I set out to accomplish at the beginning of the year.  I was doing so well, too!  But I have manged to read half of the books I started the year with that were unread and I am happy about that.  

With this group of reads I finally bumped my GoodReads goal up to a realistic yet slightly challenging new goal of 75 books.  At the time I did that I was on track to accomplish this goal, however with my current slow-down and the expected slowdown that comes every year at Christmas this goal will be a challenge, but not an impossible one.  Especially if I finish off the last few volumes of Death Note, which are sitting on my kitchen table waiting for me.
