I adore books! They’re like little portable sanctuaries in which to escape from reality. The one saving grace of the packed peak hour trains that I take to and from work is that they allow me some quality reading time. This year I’ve set myself a challenge via GoodReads to read 20 books, which doesn’t seem like an overly ambitious number, but I take my time when reading, (you know to allow for dramatic pauses and do character voices in my head, hehe).
This is just a small selection of the books I’m hoping to read this year (I am not planning to read the entire works of Sherlock Holmes this year. Dear god!). I’m particularly looking forward to Eleanor & Park. I’ve read a couple of Rainbow Rowell‘s other books, and absolutely adored her novel Fangirl (adored and related to).
I’m also looking forward to reading The Silkworm and Very Good Lives, because…well…J.K Rowling. What do you like to read? I’d love to know if you’re doing a reading challenge this year, or if you have any good recommendations. If you care to follow me on GoodReads, you can do that here 🙂 Happy reading!
