I started following Mental Mum's Little World about a month or so ago and while having a snoop around her blog I came across a badge which I (just had to!) click on to see where it lead.
I was swept away to Book Chick City which is an absolutely fabulous book and movie review blog. It was started and created back in 2009 by Carolyn and is now made up of a team of four.
The original badge that I clicked on took me to the "100 Books in a Year Reading Challenge 2012" page and so I thought, well, why not give it a go? I have my shiny new Kindle which I was given as a gift for Christmas and so far I have managed to read 3 and a bit books which is pretty darn good seeing as I have not finished a single book since my daughter was born in April 2010.
When I was commuting to and from London each day, I could easily read 1 book a week, if not more. I would devour them and get completely engrossed in the story as the characters and plot slowly developed into a magnificent read that I simply couldn't put down or wait to pick up again.
I am about to join the "100 Books in a Year Reading Challenge 2012" so from now on, I'll accept gifts in the form of Amazon vouchers so I can buy more books, please! Well, Champneys and Monsoon vouchers are good too. Just putting it out there!
