Join in a reading challenge with me!
Reflecting on my reading habits, I felt as if I had become stuck in a comfort reading rut. There are so many fabulous books being published all the time aren’t there! as well as books available from back catalogues. But I’ve had a tendency to stick to the same genre with the odd foray into fantasy or YA novels. To shake myself up and help me step out of that rut I’ve created a reading challenge.
Anyone can join in with me at any time of the year! I do hope to be able to cross them all off by the end of the year but I will continue until the challenge is complete.
Add your own in, change my ideas. It’s important that a challenge is something you can achieve so be realistic.
Let me know how the reading challenge works out and if you’ve set yourself any reading goals.
