I’ve completed the ‘one book a week’ challenge yet again this year! I did it previously in 2014 and absolutely loved it, so decided to get on board with it again.

It’s good to have a challenge like this – it forces me to put down my phone in the evening, get into bed and escape into the world of fiction. Reading is the perfect way for me to relax and switch off before going to sleep and it’s so much more productive than endlessly scrolling through Facebook and Twitter.

Have you taken part in the 52 books challenge? Would you like to?
