Every year I tell myself that I will read at least 52 books. That’s a book a week- something I firmly believe should be the absolute minimum for bookworms.
Every year I fail. Last year I came close. I managed to read 30+ books, but it’s just not good enough.
This year, I put together a small book club in the hopes that if I actually tell people I have goals, maybe, just maybe, I will reach them. The goal is to read at least 4 books a month, but alas, I have been failing at that too. At least I have been reading consistently though!
I am mentioning this because I just realised that the 5 books I have read so far this year have all been brilliant. I am on a winning streak it seems!
I initially planned to review all the books I read on BookTube, but with my technological setbacks and lack of resources it just wasn’t possible. This won’t stop me though, because today I remembered I have a blog (duh!).
I posted on Facebook earlier that I would review my most recent finish- Knife’s Edge by Malorie Blackman- right here, but I have a slight case of OCD. I will have to review the books I read in order, or else it will haunt me forever.
So, keep your eyes peeled for my reviews of
- The Lord of the Rings by J. R. R. Tokien
- A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L ’Engle
- Yes Man by Danny Wallace
- The Ice House by Minette Walters
- Noughts & Crosses and Knife’s Edge by Malorie Blackman.
Once I get these reviews out of the way, I’m hoping to make the reviews consistent, say once a week, probably on Sundays. What do you think of that? I won’t make any promises, but I will try.
I have also checked out The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt and The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry by Rachel Joyce from the library, so I will review those soon as well.
I really have to catch up on my 4 books a month idea. 3 months in, and I have only read 5 books. How embarrassing!
Let me know if you review books on your blog. Also, let me know if you have read any of the books I mentioned above. Have a fantastic day (or night if, like me, you live in SA)!
