I have loved reading for a long time. I was very poor at English during Primary school, give me a math problem and I was happy, pass me a book and ask me to read out loud I would probably cry.
Reading helped me learn new words, properly construct sentences, and improve my atrocious spelling. (You don’t want to see the initial drafts of my blog posts)
Now my tastes in books haven’t really changed since I was 14, basically the classic young adult fiction book with the threat of the world/society about to end unless the bad guy is stopped. I am about to turn 21 so I think it’s time I expand my horizons.
That is why I am going to read the 100 books featured on the Telegraph’s 100 Novels Everyone Should Read.
I am hoping to write a review type post for each book I read, so look forward to that. You can also keep up with my progress on this page: Books, which is also up there on the menu bar.
First book: The Lord of the Rings by JRR Tolkein
Just realised this means all three books: The Fellowship of the Ring, The Two Towers, and The Return of the King. This might take a while.
See you on the other side.
