Lucy Turns Pages: Reading & Stuff Update 1

Reading & Stuff Update 1

Hello, I have decided to start doing daily or almost daily updates about my reading and other stuff as I used to love making vlogs but I'm currently not well enough to make them any more. So if you'd like to see the books I've read so far this year, please check out my Goodreads.

There's a lot of stuff I can't do right now so one of my main focuses is reading! I love reading so much. It's not always easy with my mental health but thankfully I have managed to get into the habit of reading more which I am so grateful for.

My loose goal is to try to read 100 pages a day, whether that be across one read or more than one. I say loose because sometimes I get chronic migraines which can last for many days and it also depends on my fatigue and pain levels etc. But I am going to try my best to read at least a bit almost every day if I can.

So at the moment I have a few books on the go (I have already done some reading today but never mind):

The Gift of Dark Hollow- this is the sequel to The Legend of Podkin One-Ear which I read this year and absolutely loved. I am currently on page 34. Total- 304 pages.

The Book of Stolen Dreams- I think I started this in December but didn't get very far. I am now on page 44. Total- 380 pages.

The Scum Villain's Self-Saving System- This is one of Mo Xiang Tong Xiu's books which have started to be translated. The cover is beautiful and glossy. I am really enjoying this even though I don't understand everything and I am frequently confused! I am on page 54. Total- 291 pages.

I am also reading the Rainbow Magic fairy books. I'm not sure how many I read as a child but I remember loving Ruby the Rainbow Fairy, the first book. I am now up to Georgia the Guinea Pig Fairy so I will be reading these alongside other books. I am trying to read them in order but some series are harder to find than others! (There are so many series within the main series).

I also started Aru Shah and the Song of Death which is the second book, the first being Aru Shah and the End of Time which I finally read last year and loved. This is kind of on hold for now (I was enjoying it, just ended up picking up other books) but I will be going back to it.

So far today I have read some of The Scum Villain's Self-Saving System and The Book of Stolen Dreams. The latter of which is quite gloomy at the moment but I am going to plough through (my mental health was not feeling great).

As for other updates, I wrote a blog post about writing a gratitude/positivity journal that I am really proud of. We also got our second Ko-Fi member yesterday!! Please do check out my members at the end of each blog post, they are amazing.

I will update you in my next post, probably once I have read a bit more. My updates will be shorter than this but as the origin post, this ended up being longer. Please let me know what you're reading in the comments!

Thank you to my Ko-Fi members!~

  1. You are doing well. I struggle to read two chapters a day but I agree it is important to do some reading every day as it is very satisfying.

  2. 100 pages per day! Thats awesome. I just started to do a chapter or two a day!
