{Read Up} Reading Challenge 2017

As much as I love reading I never seem to find enough time. It is always something that gets pushed to the background of my busy day and every so often pops its little head out right as I climb into bed and I manage to indulge in a few pages of one of the four books on my bedside table.

I truly believe there are two types of people in the world, those who only read one book at a time and those who have several on the go at one time. I am solidly the second type.

So, as a challenge to myself (and now you!) I have put together a reading challenge for 2017.

Here you go:

Here’s to finding time to explore the written word in 2017.

Let me know how you go! Did I miss anything that should be added next time?

{The Nest Home} Read your way to escape

One of my very favourite places when the weather warms up is in my very own backyard.

We are lucky to have a wonderful outdoor space that allows the sun to stream down on my legs (yes, mum I wear sunscreen) while I drink my cup of tea and listen to my children play.

It is my favourite time because I often escape out there with a magazine or a book. Sometimes a new one, or sometimes I just take one of my classic favourites and am immediately transported to my happy place.

I am always on the search for a great new book (if you have/know/love/recommend/hate a book please let me know!)

I have stumbled across this reading list from Lauren Conrad that looks like it has some pearlers on it.

What do you think? Can you recommend something else?
