I love a good list and I love a challenge, and the pages below feel like such a fantastic way to document my taste and experiences throughout the years. Go on, have a little browse!


50 Book Challenge

I've been doing the annual 50 Book Challenge since around 2008 and it basically means I try to read 50 books a year. Some people really dislike setting challenges, as it should be about enjoying books and not counting the numbers, but personally this really helps me stay motivated (as it's very easy to get distracted by Netflix). I'm currently catching up on the full list, so in the meantime you can take a peek at my GoodReads.

 100 Films Challenge

I've been keeping track of every film I've watched since 2009 (in theory). It definitely comes in handy when I'm trying to recommend films to friends or just check how many times I've seen my favourites. I'm no longer challenging myself to watch 100 films a year, to make space for some extra reading, but it's lovely to see the full history of viewing (and I'm still keeping track of everything!).
