This post is part of Top 10 Tuesdays run by Jana from That Artsy Reader Girl
One of these days, my TBR shelf is going to collapse on me and lead to my untimely death. What isn’t helping is that I keep ignoring my already voluminous TBR and buying brand new tomes to get through.
I have a long list of books that have been on my TBR shelf for years, but I still haven’t gotten to reading them yet. Maybe it’s time to pick something from there and get it ticked off once and for all before heading to Easons again.
I’ve been a book blogger for five and a half years now, but this will be my very first time taking part in Top 10 Tuesday. That isn’t to say I haven’t come across the hugely popular series, though. I’ve seen it in its original guise, created and hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This year, it will be finding a new home with Jana from That Artsy Reader Girl, so if you’d also like to fill in some of the blanks you can find all of the topics on her blog.
The years are definitely passing a lot faster these days because I swear I wrote last year’s reading challenge just yesterday. I have just closed off that challenge from 2017, and let’s be real it did have a little bit of room for improvement. Thankfully, there’s a whole new year stretching out in front of me with some brand new prompts to tick off.
This year, I’m going to do my very best to make sure I don’t fall behind. I’ll be keeping track of the challenges in my reading journal, so I can be certain I have checked a prompt off.
With so many books out there that I really want to read, and a whole 365 days in which to read them, I am really hoping that this year, I’ll be finishing up with a majority of books ticked off from the two prompt challenges, and again have surpassed my Goodreads challenge. Do we be realistic, or head out with dreams of glory? Time to find out what’s in store.
I am a very lapsed Catholic, in the way that I am genuinely surprised I don’t spontaneously combust when I attend my annual Christmas service. This year though, in an effort to save some dough I decided to not buy any books for the duration of Lent. Six weeks with no book buying. It wasn’t going to come easy.
The last days of the year are always a time of looking back over the year just past, as well as looking ahead to what’s coming. So it’s the perfect time to fill you in on the final leg of my 2016 Reading Challenge.
On the last update, I felt I was performing quite well, but there was still that little bit to fill in. Did I reach the goal?
