I decided to take part in Reading Ahead because I haven’t been reading enough books of different genres. This was a big challenge for me as I kept trailing off and forgetting about what I needed to do or I didn’t have the motivation to read at all.
I have been trying different ways of reading books whether it be online by using play books or kindle, apps like Hooked or just simply holding a physical book and reading it.
Reading has helped me enormously with my English work, especially with the writing and reading exams.
My favourite book I read during the challenge has to be The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas[by John Boyne], I am currently obsessed with everything to do with World War II and the holocaust so this piqued my interest.
I am going to take part with Reading Ahead every year because it is something that you can try and complete… Think of it as a goal that you can achieve.
To be honest, I really didn’t think I could complete this, but then I learnt that you don’t have to read just books – you can read anything you like!
I think Reading Ahead is something that everyone should try, from people who are fluent readers to those who haven’t read a book in their life, you can do this!
Thank you for giving me the opportunity to take part. I can’t wait to do this again!
