I hate being behind on my Goodreads challenge, and at the moment I am 2 books behind schedule (eek) on just 9 for the year so far. Don't get me wrong, I'm doing well (considering all of the planning I have been doing this year) but I do really need to catch up. Hopefully I will be able to power through some pages on our Mini-Moon, after the wedding.
On a reasonably healthy 3,639 pages for 2017, which isn't too shabby. My annual record was back in 2015 with 7,027 pages in a year. I am hoping to try and beat that this year but we shall see what happens. As for my "Reading Challenge" list that I started earlier in the year, I have currently completed 16/50 items. There are some that I'm certain won't be checked off ("a classic romance" definitely being one of them!!!) but I hope to get a few more items ticked off before the end of the year.
I'm currently halfway through The Rats by James Herbert, which is a book I was recommended years and years ago. The good thing is that it's relatively short, fast paced, and pretty easy reading (yes, I class people being eaten alive by giant rats as "easy reading"). I should have it finished by the end of the week so that I can start something fresh for after our wedding!
It's a struggle trying to juggle all of my hobbies at the moment. I have nearly finished Sam's rooster - just the feet and finishing touches to go - but at the same time want to focus on my reading, amongst other things. I have a few other projects going on, including restoring some old photographs for Dave's Mum, which I am really enjoying. There just needs to be more hours in the day!
