Welcome to my brand, spanking, new blog!
I have been smashing all my reading goals this year and I have finally gotten into the habit of actually writing goodreads reviews of the books I’ve been reading, so I’ve decided to start a new blog. For those of you who are interested, I do have another blog that I’ve been using on and off over the years (mostly to post about travel – my other hobby) and I will be continuing to use that blog on occasion if you want to check it out. However, I’m stoked to dedicate this blog to my literary adventures!
To shake things up and keep things interesting, I’ve decided to set monthly reading challenges for myself. I’ve been averaging about 6-8 books a month this year, and I still want to have the freedom to read whatever strikes my fancy, but I’ve decided to set a monthly 2-3 book challenge to spice things up and diversify my books. I’ve brainstormed a few challenges, for example, one month I’d like to challenge myself to read 3 books about Canada, another month I’d like to challenge myself to read 3 books by people of colour, etc. I’ve dreamed up a few challenges for the first few months, but I’d love to hear ideas for subsequent months!
I’m not the most consistent blogger, so I’m going to aim to post at least once a month about my challenge, but I’m also going to endeavor to share my goodreads reviews of other books here as well, since I’ve gotten into a good habit of writing these already.
