30 Day Reading Challenge – Week 2

Hello!

Can you believe we’re on the second week of our challenge already? It seems to be flying by!

Ann:

This week I am experiencing the same things that Jess does. I enjoy reading the book and I understand all of the vocabulary there (which is simpler than I anticipated) but I can’t comprehend much of the themes on it (which I need to  for next week since I have to present them in class).

I didn’t read much which might be the reason for that. I only read 30 pages but at least I am thinking about reading more and I’m trying to prioritise it a bit more.

Currently reading: J. Galthsworthy “The Man of Property”

Jess:

My view on the book from last week remains unchanged. I’m enjoying reading it but it feels I’m reading for the sake of it. Again, I’m not sure if the point of the book is going way over my head, but so far it feels like any other book I’ve read recently – reading for reading’s sake. It’s hard to explain but I’m nearing the end of the book now so all being well I shall be on to my next book by the end of this week!

Pages read: Once again I haven’t been tracking the pages I’ve read very well but I think I’ve gone up another 30-40 pages!

Currently reading: The Catcher in the Rye by J D Salinger

30 Day Reading Challenge – Week 1

Hello!

This is our first week of the challenge.

Ann:

I definitely have struggled. I have been reading for 2 days and I think I got only one chapter read through.

Luckily, I have to read two books for Brit Lit and they both sound pretty interesting so I think I’ll be able to fly through them. It also seems that it’s easier to read on schooldays because mostly I do bring a book which gives me a good reason to read it as much as I can.

All in all I hope I can read more next week.

Pages read: 10

Currently reading: The Man of Property by John Galsworthy

Jess:

I haven’t been reading as much as I would like as I’ve been organising other things (otherwise read as procrastinating) but there has been some progress! I read a little and often and it seems to add up quite quickly.

I’m still not 100% sure of what the plot of the book I’m reading is. I don’t know if that’s because it goes way over my head or it’s just not something I’m interested in but I am enjoying reading it!

Pages read: I haven’t been tracking my pages accordingly so I don’t have an accurate page count, but I will guess it’s between 30-40 pages!
