SBC | The end.

Picture found on, edited by me.

This summer, I had decided to set myself a little challenge... concerning books. I am generally quite a big reader in the summer, because I don't have much time year round, so in those two and a half months, I try and catch up on all the books that I've bought and also some new releases. This year was the first time that I've attempted to do such a challenge and my goal was to read 25 books, so if we do the maths, something less than 3 books per week... and I managed to do so. 

It has been a mix of classics, young-adult books, sci-fi, dystopian, criminal, adventure, cute and heartwarming books, so I think there was something for everyone on the list below, if you're looking for something to read.

This blog post is a round-up of all the books I've read since the 24th of June to the 31st of August. The bold ones are the ones I definitely think are a must read, the italic ones are recommendations if you've got a spare *insert how long it takes you to read a book*. (That doesn't mean that the non-bold and italic books are bad, I just think that the ones that have made the cut are really better than the others and deserve a lot more attention than they're getting, just to clarify.)

And that was it. I will definitely make sure that I will repeat this challenge next year and perhaps set myself a higher goal (but that's ageeeeeeeees away, so I won't think about it for a long while). The end of this challenge doesn't mean that I won't blog about books anymore. If anything, it will mean blogging about them more, because procrastination. 
That being said, tomorrow is the beginning of school, so unfortunately, the mid-week posts won't be a thing anymore, because I won't have the time and my heart already aches at the thought of the horrendously slow wi-fi in my students' hall, so yeah... share my pain. However, I will post on the weekend, and I'll try to make the content really good. 
Anyway, if you're starting school like me, don't panic, because it'll be fine. I'll see you soon!
