2015 Reading Challenge


“There is nothing like the smell of books, both new and old. If someone ever bottled the smell, I would be all over it .”
– Tiffany KingMeant to Be

As the days winded down in 2014, I spent my last few days of freedom curled up in bed with a book, occasionally taking a break to check back into the world by sifting through numerous Tumblr and Pinterest posts and pins (going outdoors never occurred to me). I ran into the PopSugar 2015 Reading Challenge on Pinterest and decidedly immediately that this was what I was going to spend the next year doing, instead of coming up with some cheesy, unoriginal New Years’ Resolution that I would abandon on Day 3 (like giving up Pinterest and Tumblr to do something a lot more productive…ha). So far, I’ve knocked two books off my reading list and I am throughly enjoying my experience. It is expanding my reading pool, and getting me out of my typical books rut. I even got together with a friend to get some book recommendations, so we could broaden our horizons together. I will be posting reviews on all the books I end up reading for the list and tagging them as “2015 Reading Challenge”. I can’t wait to see the results! I encourage you to do something you love for the year of 2015, instead of trying to tackle another thing you hate (we get enough of those from life)! 🙂
