Monthly Challenge: March

Hey everyone! I apologise, I know we're already several days into April but with Easter, school holidays and being sick (full of cold), I really fell behind on my posts. I'm behind by 4 posts so you'll get a double up on posts for the next couple of days to make up for what I missed.

But enough of that, last month I set myself
the challenge to start and finish at least one whole book. I used to love reading and could finish books within days depending on how it good it was. But since being the UK my libido for reading has declined dramatically. The last book I read from start to finish took me three years to complete. I've had the book "The Four Legendary Kingdoms" by Matthew Reilly sitting on my shelf for ages and always meant to get around to reading it. When I saw his announcement that the sequel to the book; "The Three Lost Cities" was being released in November, I thought it's about time I actually sat down and read it. So I set myself the challenge to start and finish the book within the month of March and depending how quickly I read it, start another book.

I didn't get around to starting a second book but I did however start and finish "The Four Legendary Kingdoms" within my time period. I thoroughly enjoyed the book as well. Matthew Reilly has been my favourite author since I was thirteen years old. I discovered him after a friend at school recommended him to me. Most of his books were in the school library and it really didn't take long for me to fall in love with his work. In a way, he has been my inspiration for my novel writing, despite the fact our writing styles and genres are completely different.

So yeah, March challenge was successfully completed and I really enjoyed completing it. It was probably my favourite monthly challenge of the three and honestly I might repeat the challenge again later in the year. I want to get back into reading and challenging myself appears to be a good way to do it.

Until next time,
