Hi friends!

I feel like I’ve been hibernating in a cave somewhere for the past 4 weeks. I was hit with the biggest reading slump since August last year and found it impossible to concentrate on any books. Luckily it feels like I’m slowly climbing out of the dark ditch and am ready to take on 2019 with a reading challenge!

One of my goals this year is of course to set a higher books target. My second goal is to venture out of my comfort zone (thrillers) to discover other genres and new authors. Thought putting together a list of different prompts might make it a little bit easier and definitely more fun.
