My ultimate goal was to get all Christmas preparation in place and going as early as possible. I tried to dedicate multiple weekends in November to sort the present ideas, purchase some, order others, but as usual, life gets in the way, and most of my November weekends were hectic, busy and kind of nerve-racking. I still managed to read a lot in November and have been very productive at work, trying to get everything done before the Office closes for the holidays at the end of December, but I’m starting to feel the pressure of the holiday season.
In order to avoid unnecessary stress, I’m going to make my Ultimate End of the Year To-Do list, and stay productive to complete everything on it before Christmas!
1 – Finish all 2019 ARCs, and make some progress on 2020 ARCs.
I’m very behind on my 2019 ARCs, and I already have a bunch of 2020 ARCs to get to as well. The books I absolutely, 100%, need to finish in December are:
2 – Check 2020 releases and request MORE ARCs!
Do I even need to explain myself? I mean… We all love ARCs, right? 😀
3 – Finish all my reading goals before the 20th of December 2019.
The sudden Winter Magical Readathon did “ruin” my plans a little, but if I finish all the ARCs in the next three week, I’ll be the happiest person ever.
4 – Re-read HP books during the last two weeks of the year.
As a present to myself, I’m planning to re-read Harry Potter, books 1 and 2! It’s going to be a magical Christmas!
5 – Participate in the Winter Magical Readathon 2019!
I’ll be updating my Winter Magical Readathon post every week with reading progress and new chapters!
Besides all the reading, gift buying and cooking that I will need to do in December. I also want to try and organize my books, that will include:
- Organize my bookshelves.
- Scan all my physical TBR and add it to Goodreads.
- Organize my Goodreads shelves by creating different categories & genres.
- Post all pending reviews on NetGalley and GoodReads.
What do you still need to do this year? How long is your To-Do list?
