50 Book Challenge – Week 6

I’m extremely glad to say that I completed the 781 page monster that is The Well of Ascension: Mistborn Book Two by Brandon Sanderson last night which is right on schedule. Yes you can expect me to gush over it lots in the review this week (I know I still need to review the last book as well) – although it was a long book and I have a schedule to keep – it was never once a chore to read.

Which is fantastic because I’ve been so freaking tired this week – turns out I’ve now got a cold – and let me tell you – some people just aren’t worth being friends with. And so I’ve very much welcomed the escapism this week. So whilst I submerged myself in this book (heck it’s hard not to), I really wasn’t sure if I’d finished on time.

And it’s then that I really did wonder – what if I did fall behind. I have two weeks grace as well I know that – but would that be enough? Although I’m keeping schedule quite well at the moment, I have to say I haven’t really prepared for falling behind – or well – playing catch up. After all one can only read as fast as one reads – so speeding up massively isn’t an option. I suppose I will cross this bridge when I come to it, if I come to it.

Next is book number 6 – I have decided to read a classic for a change a pace this time and the classic I have chosen is Doctor Jekyll and Mr Hyde  by Robert Louis Stevenson. I have the paperback version but you can download the ebook for really cheap (77p on Amazon Kindle for example – and remember you can get Amazon Kindle PC for Free).

What was the last book you read? What’s your favourite book series?

  1. Congratulations on keeping up with your targets so far. I think that’s the way to approach these reading challenges. This year I’ve set myself a goal of reading a book from every country in the world – it works out to three to four books a week. I’m having to be disciplined (but I’m also steering clear of 781-pagers!). Good luck

    1. Thank you. I was thinking about doing that challenge next year as it sounds really interesting – but didn’t realise that’s 3-4 books a week! Wow… I’m not sure my discipline is that high or if I have enough time for that. Good luck!
