It’s been a bit of a rough start to my reading year here in 2018. I had high hopes for the first book I read this year, but it was not quite what I expected. I knew going into the second book that I hadn’t loved the book to which it was a sequel. And the book was okay, but that’s it.
Both books count for the Mount TBR challenge, and one counts for the TBR Pile challenge. Neither one satisfies a Read Harder task, so I ought to get cracking on that. I really need something good, too. (I am also reading A Study in Scarlet as part of my personal Canon Reading project, but that’s a known quantity.)
How is your reading year going? Are you working on any challenges? Did you choose a book specifically to be your first book of 2018?

I’m also having a rough start to my 2018, mostly because I came down with pneumonia on Jan 4 and I was too sick to even read for over a week! Thankfully I had some book reviews scheduled out for the first half of January on my blog, but it really ate into my cushion I’d built myself and now I feel like I need to bang through some books FAST and get reviews drafted as well. Stressful!
Sorry that your reading year started out poorly. Hope it picks up for you! Luckily, I haven’t had this issue. My reading has been going well!
Sorry about your reading not living up to your expectations. But don’t worry, there’s an entire year ahead of you and I hope you find some amazing books you’ll love and look back upon next year <3
