My 2020 Reading Challenge

My 2020 Reading Challenge | Life of Dahlia

In January I set myself a challenge to read more, I love reading but it can be so easy to get caught up in using digital devices, whether its scrolling through Instagram or Pinterest or watching hours of TV and Youtube. Or just spending copius amounts of time on the computer working.

While I try my best to balance time on and off devices I do find myself every now and then spending more time on than off, so I wanted to give myself a challenge in 2020 to read a bunch of books on my shelf.

I thought it would make an interesting series on my blog so below I’ve included the list of books I would like to attempt to read this year and I thought I could do some updates every couple of months and talk about my thoughts on the books that I have read. As well as maybe do a bookshelf tour, I’ve been watching a bunch of these lately so I thought this might be interesting to include as well.

I may not get to everything on my list which is okay, the idea behind this is really just to take more selfcare time and balancing my time off devices time.

Update: I’ve added a few extra books to my reading list that I’m interested in reading, like everyone else I’m self-isolating and I know I’ll be spending alot of my down time reading, its been good for my mental health so I decided to add a few extra books that I would like to read this year to my list.
