About me

Oh Hey! I'm Alice, I'm twenty three and I'm from Belfast. Welcome to my corner of the internet!
How crazy is it that the first month of 2021 is over? I've set myself the goal of reading 40 books this year. I managed to read 54 books last year but after a bit of a drought at the end of last year (I literally didn't finish a single book in December) I decided not to be too over ambitious with my goals and 40 is double what I would usually set because 2020 was such a great reading year for me but I'm not sure if I'm up to 10 books a month in my current state. I started off really well but then Olivia Rodrigo dropped drivers license so that took up way too much of my time but I finished strong. That being said in January I did manage to read NINE books which means we're off to a good enough start and I'm almost a quarter of the way to 40 already! I don't trust myself to maintain this especially since I read so so many great books this month I'm worried that I've peaked too soon and nothing will quite live up to these.
