101 Books in 1001 Days


I love to read. When I find myself engrossed in a good book, there's nothing I'd rather be doing... but when I finish the book, I often don't pick up another for a while. This goal was actually one of the main motivators to start the 101/1001 challenge: to keep myself reading. There are a wealth of books I want to read, so I'll be taking the opportunity!

This goal is complete when: I have read 101 books within my 1001 days, cover-to-cover. I'm allowing other books I've specifically named to count toward this, but I do hope to count them in addition (such as items 23 and 24).

A little bit about me

Hi, I'm Sarah...

Or saz, to my friends. I live in obnoxiously sunny Sydney, Australia (give me Winter any day) with a lovely human being who, being a superhero, we call Husbandman, and my two lovely, but insane, cats.

I'll quite happily read (almost) anything, but I do gravitate towards Fantasy, Sci-Fi, YA and Romance. I have a particular weakness for Urban Fantasy, Paranormal, and Historical Romance. While not a neccessity, I like my books to have a romantic element, and you'll find this in common with most of what I review here.

Once upon a time, this blog started out as a 101 challenge, but one of my goals very quickly took precedence, as I became obsessed with one goal: read, read, READ! So the blog has shifted focus to my passion: devouring books.
