I don’t really buy into all that new year, new me crap. But I have set myself, what I think to be, quite a tricky goal: Read 52 books in 2018.
Yes, that is one a week. And when you work full time, this can be super tiring and difficult. Where is the time?! So to start with, I got rid of Facebook. My God that thing is the biggest time waster in history. There is literally nothing happening on there that serves to better my life (save for cat photos and lists of books I need to read.)
I started by photographing my books again, paying particular attention to those I really want to read. I am so obsessed with fashion and writing right now that any book combining these two things I swallow up whole within 24 hours.
As you can see from above, I also treated myself to a little Clinique during the festive season. 20% off gift packs! And I find it very hard to say no to a gift pack.
But back to my 52 books in a year challenge: some of those books are huge. Like, Titanic huge. Ken Follett and Jennifer Donnelly to name a couple, but I have also thrown in ones I know I’ll breeze through in a weekend like The Rosie Project, Me Before You and Agatha Christie’s Murder on the Orient Express (that book is almost as thin as a wafer.)
My hopes for this year are that I get to meet more amazing authors, become manager of my own bookstore and finish writing my book (which I’m totally procrastinating about while writing this blog.)
Have you set yourself any reading goals for 2018?
