Reading Challenge, 2017

Helllloooooo Internet People! I hope you’re feeling lovely and wonderful this August afternoon.

My boyfriend and I aren’t the most competitive people, but every year, we set ourselves a Β “Reading Challenge”. The idea is, we set ourselves a goal of X number of books, and the first person to read that OR the person who reads the most is the winner. I know I know, we’re nerds. But we love it! πŸ˜€

I really want to start doing book reviews on my blog, but for now, I thought I’d share with you lovely folks the books I’ve read so far this year. My goal is 40, and I’ve done 29 so far! Please let me know if there are any you would like reviews on, or feel free to give me your recommendations for what I should read next!

    Oooh boy, I have so many book recommendations that I could give, but right now I would say The Night Circus, Erin Morgenstern, which is my all time favourite book. It’s a slow burn and might take some getting used to depending on your opinion on heavily descriptive books but I loved the sense of magic it evoked. Oh, and also almost anything by Neil Gaiman, especially American Gods and Neverwhere! There are some on this list that I’ve now just added to my ever, ever growing to-read list!
