I’m done! *dancing*
So what was it like? It was fun at first, became a chore at some points and then became really exciting again as I came closer to the end. Although I don’t think I will do it again this year, I’m very happy that I did do it and don’t think there is a better way to get you to read than this.
Here’s a re-cap of what I read – the first six weren’t reviewed but the rest were. Click on the titles to read more:
30, 31, 32: The Hunger Games Trilogy by Suzanne Collins
33, 34, 35: Fifty Shades of Grey Trilogy by E.L. James
Interested in doing the 50 Book Challenge this year? Her are a few tips:
-Choose your books wisely and read what you’re interested in or the genre you love. Nothing is worse than being 100 pages into a book you despise.
-Consider the length; now is not the time to dig into War & Peace. I’m not saying only read short books, but knowing you’re under a time constraint, a book with 1,444 pages is a daunting task when it has to be done in around a week and you still have your full time job and family obligations to worry about.
-Get recommendations from people you trust – or the New York Times. They’re pretty good at knowing what’s pretty good.
-Borrow books. Or get out that old library card!
-Don’t stress yourself. Reading should be a fun escape and if you get behind KEEP CALM AND KEEP READING! You’re not going to get fined or lose a prize. Regardless of how long it takes, you’ll be better for it when you’re done so don’t give up!

Also, I’m always looking for book recommendations so if you have any let me know!
