The 52 Week Challenge

It’s been a while since I had some me time, just time out to myself doing nothing. One thing that I do really miss is enjoying a good book, I used to read all the time and forever had a book with me waiting for the moment when I could read a chapter or two. There were times when I would read a whole book in one day but not any more.

I’m not one for making News Years Resolutions but this year I want to get back to making time for myself enjoying one of my favourite past times, reading. This year I have set myself a challenge.

 

Books

I’ve created a list of books that I want to read this year, some of them old favourites that I want to revisit, others I shall enjoy reading for the first time. Over the next 52 weeks I’m making it my mission to read every single book on this list. Just over one book per week, my 52 week challenge
