“Sometimes, you read a book and it fills you with this weird evangelical zeal, and you become convinced that the shattered world will never be put back together unless and until all living humans read the book.”― John Green
I’m an avid reader. My love for books is the prime reason I found my calling as a writer and author. Hence, book reviewing is something I do for giving back to the community that has given me so much to be grateful for.
Last year, I took up the Goodreads reading challenge because of two reasons:
- I was losing touch with reading and wasn’t able to read as much as I wanted to (don’t we all have that complain?)
- Because of the lockdown and staying at home on most days, I had more free time than usual and thought, “Why not challenge myself to read more?”
I even started a Bookstagram account just to share my reviews on the books I read over the course of 2020.
As it turned out, I surpassed by own bar. My target was to read a 100 books and I ended up reading 118 books!
So, this year I thought of continuing the trend (so to speak) and alongside the Goodreads challenge and I’m participating in the #TBRChallenge by Blogchatter.
Because, no amount of motivation can be enough for me; especially when it comes to reading.
Here’s to discovering amazing books and being able to recommend good ones to the bookish community.
