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...

30 Day Reading Challenge – Days 1-3

First let's clear the rules I'm setting for myself for this challenge.

- reading 1 page/ day counts
- audiobooks don't count
- school reading doesn't count either
- the day ends when I go to sleep (sometimes it's after 12 pm)

I had trouble trying to figure out what to read. There are so many unread books in my shelves it shouldn't be that hard but it was. In the end I settled on Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them: The Original Screenplay (boy what a mouthful) because I felt like reading something familiar. I debated on starting the Potters yet again but then thought that it might be too easy and I wouldn't have to think what to read next if I marathoned the whole series. So I chose something familiar yet new. Besides I really need to read that book let's be honest.

I might be back

I know it's been ages since I last posted and I feel terrible about that. Over the last year I've been debating on closing the whole blog but every time I thought about it it just felt too drastic. I just couldn't bring myself to do it and now I'm glad that I didn't delete the whole thing because I might be back.

I've been suffering from a major reading slump. I mean major in a way that it has lasted way over a year. I have read a couple of books and written some reviews as well but then ended up not posting them. I have listened to a lot of audiobooks, though. I just feel like it's not proper reading. The reading slump I've been battling with is that I just don't feel like reading at all and if I pick up a book I just can't motivate myself to read...
