I’ve mentioned before that I set myself a reading challenge every year. I turn 25 this year so that is the number I’ve set myself.
I must admit, lockdown has been hard on my challenge as I used to be able to read for at least two hours a day on the train, but working from home for three months has made me lazy.
So I thought I’d take the time to update you all on how I’m doing, so far by the end of June I have read 16 books.
- The Silence by Daisy Pearce
- High Fidelity by Nick Hornby
- Cilka’s Journey by Heather Morris
- The Family Upstairs by Lisa Jewell
- Over the Top by Jonathan Van Ness
- Daisy Jones & The Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid
- Queenie by Candice Carty-Williams
- The Librarian of Auschwitz by Antonio Iturbe (Translated by Lilit Zekulin Thwaites)
- Lock In by John Scalzi
- Conversations with Friends by Sally Rooney
- The Eve Illusion by Tom and Giovanna Fletcher
- Me Before You by Jojo Moyes
- Sushi For Beginners by Marion Keyes
- Saturdays at Noon by Rachel Marks
- The Switch by Beth O’Leary
- Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens
Looking back at the list, I actually think I’ve done quite well. Some I’ve hated, some have been the best novels I’ve ever read and some have been completely different to anything before.
Check out my past blogs this year for mini reviews of most of these!
Have you read any of them? Do you have any suggestions for the next 9 books I need to read to reach my challenge?
