Recently my reviewing and ‘blogging’ has slowed down and I am no longer posting reviews and a feature three times per week. I have to admit that at times reviewing has felt like a bit of a chore, but I guess that everybody needs a break now and again. Last year I made the decision to take a step back from taking part in blog tours and I haven’t regretted it, enjoying the freedom of being able to read what I want, when I want. I have also enjoyed being able to take my time over reading rather than rushing to read and finish.
I have toyed with the idea of giving up the blog and just posting reviews on Goodreads and Amazon as I did before I started Bloomin’ Brilliant Books, but I’m sticking in and continuing to go at my own pace.
I saw a post about a reading challenge over on Crime Fiction Addict on Facebook and I thought it sounded fun, so I have decided to take part. I think it will focus me a little and get me reading those books that have been sitting neglected on my bookshelf and Kindle for far too long. The challenge states to read a book per week but as rules are meant to be broken (sometimes) I’m not sticking with this and if it takes me longer, that’s fine.
So, here it is:
Note that the banner does say 2018. I did try to change it and create my own on Canva but given my limited skills in the graphics area I was unsuccessful and thought sod it, life is too short and it doesn’t really matter! Feel free to join in if you want to.

Ha ha. We could be twins. I talk of blogging feeling like a chore at times in tomorrow’s post 😂 Great minds huh 😉
Great challenge, good luck. Sounds like fun. I can post you a Mr Men book for the book you can read in a day tag lol.
There must be something in the air! It looks like an easy challenge that may help to focus my reading a bit without the use of blog tours. I have all my old Mr Men books in the loft at my mum’s, hahaha.
I wish I had your willpower when it comes to blog tours :p
It has actually been a huge weight off my shoulders!
