At the beginning of the year I started a reading challenge that I found on the internet. The aim was to get through about 52 books with different themes. I was fully optimistic that I could complete this in a year… It has been 9 months and I am only on book 10!
That was definitely me being distracted by life, netflix and work. The reasons why I wanted to do it in the first place was because
a) I love a challenge, if it has structure and tickboxes I’m in!
b) Watching TV or using your phone before bed isn’t the best for someone that has restless sleep, so I thought reading would be a more relaxing way for me to go to bed.
c) I LOVE reading. I have a vivid imagination (thank you for the year 4 school report Mrs. Moran) I can literally get events that happened in a book and a TV show mixed up because I can envision the scene and reading feels like I’m watching a movie. You can imagine how reading Stephen King books when I was younger went.
d) Sometimes I get stuck in a rut with books that I read (Hello Regency bodice rippers) so I wanted to explore other books.
I definitely won’t finish my challenge this year, however I think I will continue with it and aim to finish by next year.
I’ll update with what I’m reading and what I would give it. I am not the greatest literature reviewer and I would love any suggestions. Most of the books I have read so far have been suggested or books that I found
Here’s a look at some of the books I’ve read so far.
I’ll update my next post with the other books I’ve read and where I am currently.
