So 2018 – how’s it going?
For me, this year will be about reading more and writing more, oh, and parties, I have a few of those to organise too!
Today I’m going to focus on the ‘reading more’ aspect of my year ahead. Whilst I have committed to read 60 books I didn’t want to leave it there. I wanted to be a little more adventerous and give myself a few parameters. Hopefully I’ll be able to find new unexplored (by me) bookish delights. If you’re a list person then please feel free to jump onboard and join in.
I shall endeavour to keep you posted. My task is simple – to read books that fall into the categories below. To help keep me on track I’ve designed a nifty bar chart – who doesn’t love a bar chart! I shall feel like a right clever clogs if I manage to adhere to my bookish plan into February never mind December!
Here’s my list:
Read a book that is /was……
1. Written by a Devon-based author (excluding myself obvs)
3. A comedy
4. Contains a month of the year in its title
5. A classic children’s book not yet read by me
6. Published in the year of my birth ( not quite a classic yet… hehe)
7. A fantasy novel
8. Written by a new author
9. Set in Africa
10. About mental health
11. Set in India
12. Contains a song lyric in its title
Whoa! That is a whole heap of mischief right there, I reckon I’m going to be hitting the bookshop and the library this weekend to see what I can find.
As you can see my bar graph looks a bit sorry for itself right now and a bit blurry, no I’ve not been on the wine – January is a dry month for me! Hopefully, over the next few weeks, I shall be adding a multitude of colourful lines and colourful reads to my chart. I’m hoping to average 5 books a month. In the meantime, if you have any suggestions of neat reads, which fit into the categories above I’d love to hear them. Please pop a comment in the comment box below.
