2018 Reading Challenge

I haven’t been making the best progress with my 2018 reading goals. I always have the best intentions; however, I seem to get caught up doing other things when I would rather be reading. While browsing the Web this morning I came across this article listing 7 ways to read morepexels-photo-775998.jpeg. I think trying some of these will help me accomplish my 75 book goal for the year.

Does anyone else have a huge reading goal for this year?

Featured Book of the Week

This week’s featured book is the Tale of Peter Rabbit. I thought this book would be perfect to feature with Easter coming up. We’re in the early days of Spring and it won’t be long before there are little bunnies hopping around in my back yard. This is a board book that I’m sure all kids would enjoy.

All Book’d Up for the Hurricane

Hey there, fellow book lovers! Unless you live under a rock, or you really just don’t care that much about weather, I’m sure you have heard all about Hurricane Nate. Here along the Gulf Coast we can’t help but hear about ol’ Nate. Coverage is on every channel. Don’t get me wrong, I know that hurricanes are serious business. However, I have lived here my entire life and I believe I have a good idea about when I should panic and when to take advantage of being stuck in the house. This is a case for the latter. I decided to pack up myself, my kid and her guinea pig and head to my mama’s house for the weekend. My child and her pet will be entertained by my stepfather, and I will be able to finish my current read, Allegiant (Divergent Trilogy). I have really enjoyed reading this trilogy. I hate that it’s about to end. I admire Tris’ strength and her determination to fight for what she believes in. Her character is so kick ass, but very human as well. We’re able to see and understand her fears, what makes her happy, and how she thinks, all without being overwhelmed with too much detail.

Along with reading, I will also be able to get some planning and brainstorming done. So much can be accomplished while stuck indoors. I have some ideas for future blog posts and a couple of book hunting trips I need to plan.

I look forward to learning about what happens to the characters that I have grown so fond of. I’m also excited about catching up on some much needed rest. I’ll check in after the storm. If you’re near the coast, please be safe and do what you should to protect yourselves.
