I love the way that Goodreads keeps track of how I’m doing with my Reading Challenge for the year. Here’s a pic of the six books I’ve read so far this year. My modest goal is 25 books for the year.
I’d love to review The Innocents by Francesca Segal some time but first I’m going to let it simmer in my mind for a bit longer. And I’ll probably read a few reviews as well to check out that what I’m thinking corresponds to what others think as well. I really enjoyed it but I also have a few reservations. Which is not to detract from the fact that I think it’s a really excellent debut by a really talented novelist.
As for writing challenges, I’ve definitely fallen off the bus. But even if I have to revise my goals down quite drastically, the current plan is to stay with one case a month and write up my thoughts. It takes a lot of discipline, especially since there’s no-one else to keep me on track here.
