2015 Reading Challenge!!

Hi Lovelies,

So it is now t-minus 6 days to my freedom (last exam of university - hopefully!) and I am so busy I just want to curl up in a ball and cry! So I wanted to do a quick post to cheer myself up. I've decided to do a bit of a reading challenge after Raeleen from Padfoot and Prongs mentioned it in a recent video. I have adapted the Reading Challenge that Raeleen created by taking and adding questions and adding conditions to some. Also, I have added books that I had already read so far this year! I will be attaching this to the bar up at the top and keeping it updated (link) so keep an eye out! Also, if I have a review of any of the books I mention they will be linked!

yes, this is one of my bookshelves!

  1. Such a great idea! I'm terrible when it comes to reading so it's probably a little out of my reach but maybe one day when I'm back into it!

    1. The great thing is you can have it any size you like, that's how I felt when I seen one with 50 but if you wanted to expand your reading you could do one with 10, or 12 (one book a month!) having a goal really helped me expand my reading last year, I was reading a few books a year in 2013 and last year I read 54! :) xx

  2. Love this idea, I'm going to pinch it!
