Ultimate Book Guide – A Long Term Reading Challenge

11 Sep

I came across this book a little while ago on Amazon. I’ve already been doing the Ultimate Teen Book Guide Challenge (more about that challenge coming up in another post!) but this book is geared towards the age bracket of 8-12. Having gone through the book there is definitely some more grown up titles in this book too so it does look like quite an interesting challenge.

I’ve complied a list of all the titles to track my progress. This can be found – HERE.

This book runs along the same theme as the UTBG book – a book title, review and then some recommendations of both other challenge books and some others too which I always like.

I’m going to do this challenge slightly differently when it comes to series reading – I will read the first book in the different series but if I don’t enjoy it I’m not going to read the full series – this is something that I’ve adopted all throughout my reading lately. Life is just too short to be forcing myself to read books I’m not enjoying.

Having gone through the list I have read 34 books out of a possible 672 – which means I’m about 5.07% of the way through.I will be doing some catch up posts over the next few months of these books that I have read (In between looking after my 3 year old, having another baby in the next month, working full-time running our own business and studying for an accounting qualification!) as I want to catch up on the recommendations etc!

I have also not marked as read some books that I’d like to read again like the Famous Five series – I’m sure that I’ve missed a couple of books in this series so I’m going to try to read these again.

I am really looking forward to this long-term reading challenge and hopefully I will discover some really good reads along the way!
