Bloganuary Day 18

I hate to say this but I actually don’t have a book to read next. To be honest, I haven’t read a book in quite some time, except for academic purposes. It’s a little embarrassing but I guess I have other ways to relax. I think coming to Australia I am definitely outdoors a lot more. I walk every day and I frequent the gym 5 or 6 times a week. I love exercise and I have really gained access to a whole new fitness world that was previously unimaginable to me. Also I study often for my employment, so I just haven’t recaptured my love for reading for pleasure as yet.

I used to be an avid reader, smashing a couple of books in a week. I loved the escapism it would offer and it definitely helped with my English writing skills at school.

I really would love to become lost in a good book again. One of those books that you can’t put down as you’re so gripped to turn the page and see what will happen next. I am open to suggestions if anyone is keen to share any. I like fiction that is crime, mystery, fantasy or thriller. I do also enjoy autobiographies and the older classics 📖.

Many thanks,

Wayne 🤓

  1. I read a lot more on holiday, I love sitting by the pool and reading a book. I think it’s not bad that you don’t read for pleasure. It should be a hobby and if your hobby is to be out and about and you enjoy that more than that’s totally fine.

  2. I suspect all bookworms go through lulls due to life changes. I barely read for the first 5-6 years of my son’s life. There was just no time.
    If I had to recommend a book that rekindled my love for reading it would ‘I Am Pilgrim’ by Terry Hayes. It’s a spy novel at it’s core and every chapter leaves you with a hint of a possible twist in the tail. Great book if you haven’t read it already!

  3. That’s a great post. Not everyone is a keen reader. My diet primarily consists of books, books and plenty of books. I am sure you will be able to pick up a good book. I too love mysteries, crime fiction, psychological thrillers, horrors and fantasy. It’s also nice to know that you are health conscious. That’s a good thing.
