I normally read a lot. But I’ve ended up in a rut and instead of turning to a book I tend to hit the refresh button on social media and forums a little too much lately and it needs to stop! That’s why I’m going to challenge myself into a Finish what I started: Redaing Challenge. I chose 10 books at home that I need to finish before Midsummer’s Eve, starting today. It’s one month away and I have a lot of time on my hands until then which made it a good time frame. Why? Because I find myself wanting more books but I already have stacks of unfinished ones, all of these 10 books are started on but for some reason left unfinished, not because they aren’t good but just because of my restlessness.
Here’s what I’m going to keep myself busy with:
(From top to bottom with translated titles)
Människohamn / Harbour by John Ajvide Lindqvist.
Miss Peregrines hem för besynnerliga barn: Spökstaden / Hollow City: The Second Novel of Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs.
