My Reading Year So Far…

Every year I set a Goodreads  challenge & I seem to either achieve it or be over my target but this year has been very different. There are many positive reasons why such as getting married, relocating and setting up our first martial home but also the negative things happening right now make it very difficult for me to be in the right head space to sit down and enjoy a good book. I have set my target to 70 and 8 months in I am nowhere near it and that does get me down a little.

I am now slowly starting to find the gusto to start writing regular blogs but the monthly reviews have almost fallen by the wayside so I must rectify this for the remaining months of the year.

 

Here is what I read so far this year
