Popsugar Reading Challenge 2018

Things have been odd in my house lately.ย  I’m not really crafting, not really stitching, not really knitting.ย  I’ve watched a grand total of 3 hours TV in the past 2 weeks.

What am I doing?ย  I’m reading. A lot. And by a lot I mean A LOT.

I have finished 6 books in the past 2 week.

A Handmaids Tale (Margaret Atwood) Wow

The Lottery (Shirley Jackson) Wow. Short story. Wow

Written in Red (Anne Bishop) Favourite author so yay ๐Ÿ™‚

Asylum (Amy Cross) No.ย  It was terrible

World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War (Max Brooks) Undecided whether I liked it or not. Very different

Murder of Crows (Anne Bishop) Continuing story of the Others so yay ๐Ÿ™‚

I’ve joined Goodreads and update my status every day.

I am constantly wondering what I am going to read next.

In short I am adicted to reading and I am loving it.

Its not the first time I have had this affliction or more of a relapse really.

I have noticed that I am a little stuck in my reading genre’s so I did a little search and found a wee reading challenge for next year from Popsugar ๐Ÿ™‚ Now I’m reasearching and compliling my reading list for next year.ย  I’m going to try to mostly use books that are already in my home which is quite a few but I know that I will need to outsource some ๐Ÿ™‚

If you have any suggestions or recommendations please let me know ๐Ÿ™‚ย  All selected books are subject to mood swings so nothing is set in concret ๐Ÿ˜€

Oh happy sunfilled relaxing summer days ๐Ÿ˜€
