As most of you know, I took part in Believathon during November.
You can see my original post on it, with all my goals and choices, here.
There were 10 prompts plus a group book, but you could choose any amount from 4 up. I chose 10 in the hope of reading more, but aimed to read at least four of the books below
I managed five of them. It’s easy to feel disheartened and a bit disappointed by this, especially as I see lots of posts about how many others have read and even more so seeing posts about all the extra books people got through after completing their ten.
However, I need to try and be positive. I know I’m not the fastest reader and fitting it in between work and a toddler is a struggle (for me), so to have managed just over one a week isn’t too bad.
I’d have liked to have managed one or two more, but I hit a bit of a wall near the end of the month and I read The Velvet Fox when I finished The Clockwork Crow instead of going straight to another Believathon read, so I need to just remind myself that five is ok.
The Train to Impossible Places by PG Bell – Read my thoughts here.
Skycircus by Peter Bunzl – Read my review here.
The Clockwork Crow (and The Velvet Fox) by Catherine Fisher – Read my review here.
North Child by Edith Pattou – review to follow this week!
Everything, All At Once by Steven Camden – review to follow this week!
I also started Invisible in a Bright Light by Sally Gardner which was on my original list. I really, really need to read A Darkness of Dragons and The Switching Hour soon though as they’ve been on my pile FOREVER! I might try and read A Box of Delights in December too…
Well done to those of you who also took part! It was a really fun challenge that had a great sense of community book love. Really hoping it becomes an annual event!
