I posted just before Christmas summarising the novels I had read in 2015. it was my 2015’s New Year’s Resolution to read 25 novels in the year to come; why? Because I love reading, and books, always have. But with the easy distraction of social media (i’m addicted to Instagram and Pinterest…) I can find myself wasting chunks of time that would otherwise have been spent getting into a good book.
I tried reading in bed before going to sleep, on public transport on the way into and on the way home from work, and sometimes, if I was lucky enough to get one, on my lunch break.
With all these chunks of time, plus time at weekends, 25 novels wasn’t really hard to achieve, and there were often up to 5-7 days at a time when I didn’t read at all and had a bit of a break.
This year I think I might aim for 30!
Any self-respecting book lover can have way more books at any given point than they can read at once, and I am no exception. I have a backlog of novels on my kindle, mainly the free classics or the 20p each novels that Amazon occasionally feature. I also have a stack of paperbacks I buy with all the right intentions.
I’ve pinned the book titles that I have so far on my list for this year onto my 2016 Reading list board- do you have any recommendations? Have you read any of these novels already? I’m nowhere near 30 yet, and as you can see they’re a real mixed bag! Help me out by making some suggestions in the comments below!
