The Book A Week Challenge – Progress Check

On New Years Eve I set myself a New Years Resolution, like many other people. This year I am quite proud to be able to say that in August I am still on track to achieve that resolution.

I set myself the challenge of reading 52 new books by New Year Eve this year – an average of a book a week over the year. I have read many non-new books as well, but in week 32 of this year I am about to start new book number 34!

Some of the books on that list may be familiar to those of you who have been keeping up with my blog over the past few months, though I still haven’t gotten around to typing up reviews for them all.

So far it has been achievable – I’ve had a few dry spells where I’ve not read anythign new at all, mostly around night shifts, followed by spurts of reading three new books in a week. It makes me glad that I never put any pressure on myself to read a new book every single week, that I went for an average over the year.

It was around April when I decided to start blogging about my reading journey, and properly stopping to consider my own opinions on what I was reading. Honestly, it has been really invigorating for me writing this blog, and has prompted me to be a bit more adventurous in what I am reading and writing about.

So here’s hoping that the next 19 books are fun and inspiring, and preferably straight off my TBR list!

Here’s a link to a few of my favourite books from the list above:

Book Review: Ariadne by Jennifer Saint

Book Review: The End Of Men, by Christina Sweeney-Baird

Book Review: When Breath Becomes Air by Paul Kalanithi
