This year, I took part in the Fall Into Reading challenge, which basically involved challenging yourself to read a set number of books before the end of December. I challenged myself to read 13 books for the set period of time. I am afraid to say I didn't manage, as of the finish date I had read 5 of them, although I finished the sixth just after. I am placing all blame for this failure on school, and the amount of homework I have been receiving.
My favourite book that I read from my list would have to be The Fellowship of the Ring by J.R.R Tolkien, although The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams comes a close second. I had been uneasy about starting the Lord of the Rings trilogy, because I absolutely love the films, but I really wanted the books to stand up against them. I am glad to say, the book are just as good as I hoped they would be, and I can't wait to continue the trilogy.
I really enjoyed this challenge as it was something new that I discovered, which has helped me to read some books that have been in my TBR pile for a long time.
If you took part in the challenge, I hope you did better than I did, and thanks to Callapidderdays for hosting the challenge!
