Howdy folks, and welcome! Welcome to Liz tracks her progress with Around the Year in 52 books in a public place! Yes, you’ve probably guess is, but for those who haven’t worked it out, I am attempting to complete the Around the Year in 52 Books Reading Challenge. This challenge, the details of which can be found in this Goodreads Group. The guys who run this awesome challenge have set up 52 unique challenges, one for each week of the year, which an option to wildcard a single challenge from another readathon to replace one that’s too hard or time consuming to complete.
I have been looking for a suitable readathon for a little while. Something to help me read some different books, to get me back on the reading track, and engaging with other readers and bloggers. I absolutely loved #TheReadingQuest over the summer, and fell in love with the premise and the variety that it offered. I found it it made read new things, and made me more accountable for what I was actually reading. The House Cup Reading Challenge is similar in that it awards points for reading challenges, and has a core underlying aim (here to finish Hogwarts) while earning points towards a goal. It’s all very exciting!
Lauren of Live, Love, Read; Alex of Book Daisy Reviews; Kelsey of Kelsey’s Cluttered Bookshelf; and Erica of Escape Under the Cover, are hosting a brilliant readathon and are inviting fellow book readers and Harry Potter fans on an adventure as we tackle our TBRs! Now let’s get to the fun part… Continue reading “House Cup Reading Challenge | Sign Up and TBR”
It’s the final stretch already! I can’t believe how quickly this week has gone! I have a week off for the first time in a long time which started yesterday, so I am hoping that the blogging and reading bug will stay with me and I will get into the habit of doing both again, even while there is no read-a-thon!

This is going to be a short and sweet post because I did no reading whatsoever, and that was planned. I visited my friend in Stoke, my travel buddy who toured the world with me, and we had plans. We went for food, watched a stupid amount of needless Youtube videos, had a good ol’ catch up, and went to see Hairspray, which was amazing (again!)
I hope you had a more successful day than I did in the reading stakes! I’ll try and double up on the challenges in my final post!
I’m getting that holiday feeling…..almost. As we enter the final stretch of Bout of Books 16, and into the weekend, I enter my first proper stretch of time of since I have worked at Avios. I do have bits and bobs planned, but it’s nice to know I’m not actually doing too much this week. No excuses not to read really! Continue reading “Bout of Books 16: Day 5”
The weather is taking the absolute mick today and I am severely unimpressed. Of course it has been great weather while I have been in, and now as it is been rainy while I’m off, until I’m back in work when the sun has come out. Absolute joke, the weather and I are no longer friends.
A little bit of a digression there, sorry! Continue reading “Bout of Books 16: Day 4”
I finally have a day off, and of course it’s raining, Glorious weather all weekend when I was stuck in the office, and when it gets to my time off the downpours begin. Absolutely typical. The rain and the time should make for good reading and sorting conditions, so lets see what I can get done. Continue reading “Bout of Books 16: Day 3”
