What is #FunReadsInGradSchl

I love books! I have always loved to read! I can remember getting in trouble and being told I could only check out books for class growing up. The worst thing you could tell me was I could not get books to read for fun. I know super nerdy, but super honest.

Fastforward, I am now twenty-five years old and I am in graduate school. I literally read every day and my eyes get tired; however, I realized that I was not making time for ME and the things that I LOVED. And one of those things was reading for fun. I remembered the feeling of getting lost in the pages of a good book. How my imagination was better than any movie or show I coul ever watch. And then I read an article about the amount of people who haven’t read since high school. I was shocked. I knew that I had read here and there but I was dangerously close to being in that statisitc and I did not want be. I also was recenlty diagnosed with a reading impairment and processing disorder and I got even more discouraged to read.

So I decided, that I was going to start reading again. I didn’t know how I was going to find the time, but I was going to make it. In 2018, I made a crazy goal to read 50 books. I didn’t accomplish that goal; however, I did read 37 books. That was 37 books I probably wouldn’t have read without setting such a bold goal.

As I would post about the books I was reading and completing, I would get quite a few questions. How did I have time to read during grad school? What are some tips to read? How do you choose your next book? What did you think of this book or that book?

So I finally decided that I would create a specific page on my blog to answer some of these questions as well as write reviews of the books that I have completed. So I will be playing catch up for the 37 books I completed last year as well as the 12 books I have already completed this year.

I reallllllllly would love everyone’s feedback!
