My Recent Reads – January & February 2019

My Recent Reads – January & February 2019

This post includes affiliate links

As I’ve mentioned in a few of my posts recently, at the beginning of the year I decided that I wanted to take more time out for reading. It’s such a good way of switching off and clearing the mind, and I wanted to stop wasting so much time online scrolling social media endlessly. So, I set myself a Goodreads challenge – albeit a slightly ambitious one of reading 52 books this year – and I also set up my online book club. You can read more about that here, and if it sounds up your street, you can join here.

 

When I’m looking for something new to read I tend to base it on recommendations. I have a whole folder of screenshots on my phone from where friends have shared the books they’ve loved and I’m adding them all to my To Be Read list. So, with this in mind, I thought it made sense to share my Recent Reads each month, and let you know what I have thought of each of them – the good, the bad and the ugly. Hopefully one of you may find a new book for your list!

Introducing The APFT Book Club

Introducing The APFT Book Club

I’m a little bit excited about this today because I’m here to tell you all about something I’ve wanted to do for ages and – finally – I’ve got it kicked off. My online book club!

 

In a busy, busy world it’s so important to slow down and take some time out for your own peace of mind, and – for me – reading is one of the best ways I’ve found to do that. Whether it’s an afternoon with endless cups of tea on the sofa as you lose yourself in a story, or a quick 15-minutes grabbed deep in the pages of your latest read on your commute home, reading is a great way to both exercise your mind and relax it.

 

Now, one reason I’ve never got on with book clubs before is that life happens and so I can’t always dedicate the time needed to keep up with the rest of the group. Or, I’ve struggled with the book that has been chosen and so lose interest. So, I’ve taken that mindset and decided that my book club is going to be different.
