Fathoming Books: 6 Stages of Completing A Reading Challenge

I love reading challenges. It's been two years and I can't imagine my reading life without challenges now. They give you motivation to keep reading. They push you out of your comfort zone and make you try books you wouldn't normally pick up on your own. They allow you to form a community around fellow… Continue reading Fathoming Books: 6 Stages of Completing A Reading Challenge

2021 Reading Challenge Check In (2 out of 6)

I'm happy with the progress I've made in the last two months. Not so happy with the number of books I've DNFed but still happy with the books I've managed to read. I think switching my focus between my two big reading challenges every two months is the way forward. It's working so far. Goodreads… Continue reading 2021 Reading Challenge Check In (2 out of 6)

Fathoming Books: 6 Steps to Enjoying the Perfect Reading Challenge

I've made no secret of the fact that I love reading challenges. They light a fire under you to keep you reading. They make you reach out of your reading comfort zone.

However, I will freely admit that they aren't… Continue reading Fathoming Books: 6 Steps to Enjoying the Perfect Reading Challenge

2021 Reading Challenge Check In (1 out of 6)

I think I've made a pretty good start of my reading challenges this year. I completed my own reading challenge and, though I'm a big behind on the Pretty Mess Reading Challenge and the Popsugar Challenge, I think I'm making good progress. I only hope it stays this way for the rest of the year.… Continue reading 2021 Reading Challenge Check In (1 out of 6)

Reading Challenges 2021

This is a little late, I know. I haven't had much time or headspace to think ahead to the New Year since Blogmas took up so much of my time. Since four was too easy and six was a little too hard, I'm going for five challenges this year. I haven't picked strict monthly challenges… Continue reading Reading Challenges 2021

The New Year’s Resolutions Reading Challenge

I've been taking part in reading challenges for two years and, now, I want to try my hand at making my own. Since the challenge is starting in January (and since I can't think of anything more appropriate), I'm going for a New Year's Resolution theme. So, I've looked up some of the most popular… Continue reading The New Year’s Resolutions Reading Challenge

2020 Reading Challenge Check-In (6 of 6) FINAL

I really tried to be better organised with my reading challenges. I even calculated page and hour targets for the last ten days of the year to make sure I completed all my challenges but I was still lagging. Yet again, the Christmas break (and a lot of long hours of determined reading) saved the… Continue reading 2020 Reading Challenge Check-In (6 of 6) FINAL

2020 Reading Challenge Check-In (5 out of 6)

I've managed to shake off my reading slump at last and to finish two of my reading challenges! I'm not as far ahead as I was this time last year (I'm about 15 books behind) but I'm happy with how far I've progressed now. I only have a few books left to go on all… Continue reading 2020 Reading Challenge Check-In (5 out of 6)

2020 Reading Challenge Check In (4 out of 6)

Well, this is embarrassing. I thought I would have finished at least one of the challenges by now but my reading slump just won't let me go, no matter how many good books I throw at it. I just haven't had the time or energy to read as much as I would like. I can… Continue reading 2020 Reading Challenge Check In (4 out of 6)
