As your can tell, I have a wide arrangement of interests from Young Adult to Historical Fiction to Mountain Climbing Adventure Stories but that's why I like reading so much, it allows you to not be limited and to explore whole different worlds that you wouldn't otherwise be exposed to. And honestly, about all but 4 of these books I already own and just need to read. I picked up Then Came You today on a whim while shopping at my favourite bookstore when I was little so hopefully that will be the first tick off. I also read I am a Pole (and so can you!) by Stephen Colbert while waiting in line, but I don't think that one counts!
Here's the plan
- Post each Sunday what book I will be reading / finishing that week
- I'm obviously allowed to read more than one book at a time but my goal is to finish one a week.
- Have at least one weekday evening and one weekend "time slot" (morning, afternoon, or evening) dedicated to reading/immersing myself in what I'm reading.
- This is me being selfish, because it's honestly one of my favourite things to do and I want to make sure I make time for it!
- Post a review of the book and what I thought about it (be personally accountable!) by Sunday.
- Constantly be updating my "Week to Read" Reading List with new books I want to read, I've never reached a point that I didn't want to read something.
- Re-read some of my favourites and post reviews on them.
- Post reviews on the "Archives" of books I've already read.
PS - I already finished a book this week, so expect the first "official" post this Sunday!
PPS - Yes, sometimes I like to read cheesy embarrassing young adult novels, reading's fun! It doesn't always have to change your outlook on life.
