Taking another shot at reading

Sunday, 8 February 2015



I am one of those people that always says, 'I really want to read that', when referring to a book title, but never actually does. It gets to a suitable time in the evening and I find myself watching Youtube/Netflix/TV; I then forget that I wanted to read for a bit so I go to bed without looking into my book. When I was younger, I was an avid reader. Nowadays, especially last year, I only read about twice a week. So I am going to 'take another shot at reading'.


As you may have previously read, there is saying that I like to live my life by. I'm sorry if I seem to be repeating myself but just incase you are unaware of it:'Life is like a camera, focus on what's important, capture the good times, develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, take another shot', and taking another shot is what I want to do. 


I would like to find time to sit down with a book and immerse myself in it- actually reading the books before I watch the movie! My friends are always chatting about what books they are reading and I want to involve myself more in that. In terms of goals, I'm not going to say to myself that I should read a book a week because you never know if you will have time to do that. I just want to make an active effort to pick up a book most evenings and read for 20mins or so. If I can, I'd like to read the Harry Potter series this year. I grew up with the films and I haven't read any of the books! 

Other books that I'd like to look into are:

If I Stay - Gayle Forman
The Perks of being a Wallflower - Stephen Chbosky
Eleanor and Park - Rainbow Rowell

If you have any book suggestions, I'd love to know!
