i failed my own reading challenge lol

28 before 28

Hi friends! How are you all today? What have you been reading recently? Any favourites?

A few months ago, I wrote a blog post detailing the ’28 before 28′ reading challenge I created for myself. I spotlighted 28 books I wanted to read from my physical tbr before my 28th birthday on the 30th of August. It is now the 1st of September, and I have failed my own challenge.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m lowkey annoyed that I didn’t finish my challenge but it’s not that deep. But I will still be prioritising these books for the rest of the year!

Pictured above are the books that I wanted to read before my 28th birthday.

I really love the selection of these 28 books – I feel like I have a good range of genres!

So, out of the 28, how many did I actually read?

As you can see from the circled books, I have read 13 out of the 28. Literally, one book away from reaching the halfway point! How bloody frustrating!!!!

Which books from this list should I prioritise?? Let me know!

And that’s it for today, friends!

Until next time, happy reading!

All the love,
