2017 Reading Challenge

Last year I posted a blog titled "Time to Look After Me" in which I discussed the importance of self care or me time.

One of the ways that I like to have some me time is by reading. In January of last year, one of my friends posted the 2016 Reading Challenge and tagged me in it. Unfortunately time got away from me last year and while I read quite a few books, I didn't complete the challenge. I was so close though!

This is the year to complete a Reading Challenge. After a search I stumbled across Hannah Braime's website. Late last year she posted a blog with not one but two Reading Challenges for 2017. The first has 26 challenges, equating to one book every two weeks, the second has 52 challenges.

I love reading but I'm not up to reading a book every week, so I am going to attempt to complete the first challenge.

I can proudly say that I have ticked off two of the challenges and it's only week 2 of the year! Perhaps I should attempt the second challenge!!

A book you can finish in a day - Alice, written by Christina Henry. I then finished the sequel "Red Queen" the following day! If you like Alice In Wonderland you may enjoy these books. But be prepared, things are not as they seem!

A book written by a female author - Pretending to be Normal, written by Liane Holliday Willey. This is a fascinating read as it is Liane's account of growing from a child into adulthood as an undiagnosed Aspie. The edition that I read had been updated with her diagnosis as an adult and the challenges that she faced with her own children. Would highly recommend this book to anyone interested in reading about Aspergers.

So who is with me!

Hit me with your reading suggestions!
