Bout of Books Updates

So I decided not to make a TBR-pile because I simply have no idea what I want to read. I don't have that many quick reads left in my shelves so I'll be reading longer books and I have no idea how long finishing them will take. The important thing for me is to get as many pages read as possible. Since I haven't done that before I have no idea what kind of goal to set for myself so I won't. I just want to see how many pages I'm capable of reading without any pressure. It's going to be so much fun!

In 'books finished' I'll also count audiobooks. I'm too lazy to count every single day how many hours I've listened so I won't keep tabs on that.

I'll start the reading with Library of Souls by Ransom Riggs which I have already started (on page 284) and the listening with The Sun Also Rises...

30 Day Reading Challenge – Days 4-7

Books finished: 1
Pages read: 497

It has been a week already! I've read every day at least a little but most of the time ended up reading way more than I actually intended. I've finished Fantastic Beasts and started Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs. At first it was a bit daunting when I finished Fantastic Beasts because I wasn't sure what to pick up next. I was afraid that my reading motivation would somehow disappear after I finished one book because I either wouldn't know what to read next or just wouldn't feel like reading anymore. That was the case every single time I tried to pick up my reading habits before – I'd read one book and then have absolutely no idea what to read next so I would just give up...
