2017 Reading Challenge Books

2017 Reading Challenge

I have always loved reading, but have often struggled to find the time. However, moving to Korea and teaching, I have a lot more free time. Having no telly has also made a massive difference to how productive I am in my free time.


I love a good challenge so have decided this year I am aiming for 30. This was perhaps overambitious, but it’s good to aim high!


I have made a few errors in my books choices. They have all been hefty reads, almost 2500 pages in total!


I am always looking for my next book to read, so recommendations are always very much appreciated!
