Here we are again folks! I know that I said I wasn’t going to do this year’s challenge, but I have changed my mind and decided that I wanted to give it a go. I have been reading a lot more diversely naturally anyway, so I thought I would see how I was doing and see if I could get close to completing this year’s list! I do love a good reading challenge, and this one looks really good in my reading journal too, so it was too much to resist! Continue reading “Book Riot Read Harder | 2019 Challenge”
Yo guys, it’s the end of February! I know, it’s crazy that we’re headed into March already, but it’s blowing a blizzard outside and is bloody freezing, so if you’re a winter bunny, you’ve got a bit to go yet.
There is still a little bit of February left so I haven’t committed to writing my wrap for the fear I’ll finish a book before the end of the month, so, I’ve decided to think ahead to next month. March is a month that’s long, and cold, and is the transition between the winter and being poor, and the spring and being hopeful. I have tried to read some more respectable fiction (and non-fiction) over the past couple of months and have done quite well, so to keep those efforts on track and to make sure I’m still ticking off challenges for Around the Year in 52 Books and Book Riot Read Harder, I’ve done a March TBR. It’s a bit ambitious, but if we’re honest, it always is! Continue reading “March TBR”
I absolutely love a good readathon or year long reading challenge, and in the past I have given the Book Riot Read Harder challenge a cursory go. In previous years I have struggled completing many of the challenges, and have quickly lost energy and motivation. I often found that I was trying to complete the challenges for the sake of it, and not because I actually enjoyed reading the books that fit. I looked at the 2018 list at the beginning of January and just felt that this year it was more manageable, and so I set about attempting to do what I have always failed to do before, and ‘read harder’.

Well well guys, it’s no longer January (aka the longest month of the year, the month that never ends, the month that is made for us to be poor), which means it is time of the first wrap post of the year. January has previously been the month that I read hard in, where I shift through a huge stacks of books, and take part in a load of readathons. January 2018 has been a lot busier in my life than was initially expected, so I haven’t read quite as much as January’s gone by, but I took part in Bout of Books and the 24in48 Readathon and I also joined an awesome online book community of book bloggers and YA readers called Crone Bloggers.
