FINDING TIME TO READ AGAIN: 2019 CHALLENGE


If your a serious reader like me you'll be a member of Goodreads, if your not, you should be. Its a great website to store all your TBR's and Read books so you don't forget what you own, have read already or books you want to read in the future. I am an absolute nightmare for walking around bookshops with my Goodreads app open, adding all the books on the shelves I want to read.

Every year they host a challenge, basically its pretty simple, you just need to read. At the start of the year you set yourself a goal of how many books you want to read throughout that year. Id already decided I wanted to read more, so jumped on the bandwagon and set mine at 10. This means its not even one book a month, and if I want to get serious about being lost in my own little fantasy world, it should be pretty simple upkeep.

The main reason I love to read is because it gives me the opportunity to be free. To me, if a book is written in the right way, you should be able to lose yourself and forget about everyday shenanigans and feel like your living the scene your reading. Sounds intense I know, but I imagine avid readers are sitting reading this, nodding their head in agreement. Who hasn't read a book until the early hours of the morning because they are so engrossed they didn't realise the time? If not, your not reading the right kinds of books.

Mainly I enjoy reading Young Adult, Sci Fi and Fantasy Fiction books, I dip my toe in the autobiography world only if it is someone I think is really interesting. My current Goodreads TBR list is out of control, on a near daily basis a new title is being added. Usually because I've read recommendations from another blogger or a Goodreads email has landed in my inbox!

Over the course of the year I'll be sure to review and give my own recommendations on the 10 books I eventually get round to reading, who knows hopefully ill make it to more than 10. What are you reading at the moment? Are you a member of Goodreads? If so, add your link to the comments below so I can follow your reading challenge progress!
