Changing Reading Routines

Chat HeaderBefore lockdown, I had quite specific times that I read and it often wasn’t whilst I was at home. I had gotten into the habit of reading on my commute to and from work (or most times I used public transport), reading in cafes with friends and attempting to read before bed but this rarely ever happened. Lockdown has changed this quite a lot as the only place I can now read is at home! I always had a weird relationship with the word ‘productivity’ and what it means and I’ve had to again deal with it as I felt guilty reading at home – read on to see how I’ve adapted my reading routines!

Reading Intentions Update

Chat HeaderFor me, reading goals are quite flexible and I change them throughout the year. I start with a few intentions at the start of each year however I don’t always stick to these and I change them depending on how I’m feeling and what I’m doing at that point.

Both of us have a lot of books on our TBR piles that we want to get around to in the next few months over summer. Summer feels like the perfect time to read as the world seems to slow down a little in the heat and there is much more time in the day to sit tight with a book. We’re both hoping that we can get plenty of reading done, so here are some of the books that we think we’ll be able to get around to! Continue reading “Summer Reading Goals”

2016 Reading Goals

Chat Header

Can you actually believe we’re less than a week away from 2016? This year has gone ridiculously quickly! I’ve been in the process recently of writing my end of the year blog posts and I realised that I read A LOT of YA contemporary in the last year. There were a few exceptions obviously, however the majority of what I read was Young Adult. I never usually set myself reading goals (because who really follows them?) But I wanted to set myself some basic rules and/or goals for reading in 2016.
