I decided in January that it was time for me to read more, so I started this years first project. 52 books in 52 weeks. Basically I have to read one book each week for a year, and gosh darn it I have actually done it so far! I have read 18 books already this year and I am currently reading number 19. I have never been able to keep doing something this long before, I am usually not stubborn enough. Projects, diets you name it, it all fails. I guess I have succeeded so far because reading means sitting still in a comfy place under a cosy blanket. Hehe...
Alright, here are the books I have read so far:
From top left (in the order I read them):
Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone - Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children - Winds of Limbo - In Praise of Shadows - Diary of a Dog Walker - Norse Myths - Of Mice and Men - Stargirl - Norwegian Wood - Switch Bitch - The Art of Travel - The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe - Before I go to Sleep - Catcher in the Rye - A Street Cat Named Bob - Pixel Juice - The Witches - Everything Everything.
My favourite so far is Norwegian Wood, and no, it is not because it has "Norwegian" in the title. It is set in Tokyo, Japan in late 1960's. The story is about Toru Watanabe and his life as a college student.
This project is not easy peasy every week as some of the books I have chosen to read was really not for me. An example is Catcher in The Rye. It is sooooo boring!! Nothing happens in this book, it is just the time period between when a guy gets kicked out of school till he arrives at home to his parents. Really?! I was bored out of my mind reading this, but I made it through.
It was not my idea to read Catcher in the Rye, a co-worker lent me this book and suggested that I read it. Thank you very much person from work! But to be fair, so far different people have sugested 7 out of the 18 books so far, and 3 of them were not my style.
But I can not only blame other people, I have picked a few bad fitted books as well, and a good example is the book I am currently reading, but I will not tell you about that just yet. That is a story for Sunday.
If you want to read about my thoughts about every book I have read, then you can head to my Instagram account and have a look. I post about books every Sunday.
That is all for now, write to you later.
