Alright, this is a little delayed… but here are some snapshots of my year in books for 2018. I want to read an extra 20 books this year and I can’t wait to hit it!
You never realise how much you miss something until it’s gone. And today, that thing is chapters… I’ve been reading the first few Discworld novels lately. And for a series of books that I love, it’s taking me quite a while to finish each story. I kept wondering why and then I realised… no chapters!…
Christmas is about working way too much, reading every moment I get and missing my family. This is the second Christmas that I haven't been with them, and the first time that I've been in the same country as them... It's been nice though, lots of money, lots of free time, which basically for me just means lots more books.
This month I haven't really completed many of my reading challenges. I didn't complete my semester of study. And I probably have a whole list of other things that haven't been completed. And at some point a few weeks ago, this was a huge issue. But, now... not so much. I've kind of come to terms with the fact that things have been changing pretty drastically for me and it's time to sit back and rethink.
The end of September and my first month of participating in reading challenges has come to a close. And it's been a really fun experience! I have this incredibly frustrating habit of picking up one series, reading a book or two and then switching to another... by completing reading challenges, I'm able to find an excuse to read books that are part of a series that I may have put down a year ago.
So, this week's been real fun... I've been sick. For the whole week. But not the so-sick-you-just-sleep sick. Or the can-soldier-on sick. No, it was the I-feel-fine-oh-no-I-don't sick. And the nausea. The nausea has been super fun.
This month all of my assignments seem to be due... so it's been a little more difficult to read lots of intense novels. That's why most of the reviews for this month are short stories that were a wonderful, quick and easy journey into another world.
