As of now, here’s my reading status:

In Goodreads, I planned to read 100 120 books this year. (I increased it because I read so many mangas this year)

I decided my list to be those books from the authors I haven’t read before. I noticed, however, that I’m not exploring more on women’s literature. So, I decided my list to be both. These are books from female authors I haven’t read before:

1) The Lake
2) Flipped
3) Seriously…I’m Kidding
4) Xingu
5) The Yellow Wallpaper
6) Terropian Princess
7) Chinese Cinderella
8) The Proxy Eros
9) Ella Enchanted
10) The Bluest Eyes
11) I Know Why The Caged Birds Sing
12) Longbourn
13) We Were Liars
14) The Madness Vase
15) Strange Weather in Tokyo [currently-reading]

I counted my physical books (with the help of Goodreads) and I found out that I owned 572 books, 200 are mangas. I read about 500 books but some of those are ebooks. I should read my actual books first before the ebooks. =.= I still buy some every week. (≧∇≦)
