My 2017 reading habit

Last year I set myself a reading list of twelve books. I reckoned one book a month was doable  but unfortunately I failed abysmally. I managed three books over the year. Well, that's not totally true. I read three books from my list but also read several ARC books and draft novels for fellow writers. Still, I didn't meet the challenge I set for myself.

This year, I'm doing things differently. Rather than setting a list of books to read and ticking them off as finished, I'm going to add to my 'read' list on the right of this page as I finish each book. I'll review the novels that stand out as special too.

As writers, we need to read. It's the other side to our creativity. 2017 is going to see a lot of change in my life and committing to read as much as possible is one of those changes. Wish me luck.

  1. Because I edit, I don't read a lot of published books. At least, they aren't published when I read them. I can't participate in reading challenges, but I always have my nose in a book.

  2. My TBR list is so huge I may have to start calling it a wish list. I have some books that I've promised to read for other authors which will get top priority and I've also joined the British Book Challenge - which is only 1 book per month so I'm thinking I might manage that.
    Good luck :-)
