May the force be with you! I hope you’re having a wonderful Star Wars day! It’s time for me to share my reading, blogging, and life goals with you for the month of May! And uuuuh, I’m so excited!
Do you remember me saying that this year I was going to read less than usual? Yeah… well, that’s not happening. I’ve been reading way more than usual, and I’m going with it for now. I think in May things will slowly get back to normal, which means crazy work hours, but I’m being hopeful that I can find some extra hours in my days to consume all of these books.
I’m currently in the middle of three books, which I hope to finish before this post goes live, so they won’t be included in my TBR list. I’m writing this post on Thursday, April 30th, and since we have a long weekend, I’m pretty sure I can finish and review all of them.
MAY MONTHLY GOALS:
|1 – Read at least one book from the series I’ve already started.|
|I don’t think I’ve mentioned this in any of my previous posts, but I’ve been trying to incorporate in my TBR, every single month, at least one book that is a conclusion to the series or the next installment in an ongoing one. This way I can finally make some progress in the ginormous list of series I’ve started but have yet to finish.|
|2 – Read at least one book from my physical TBR.|
|This year I’ve been reading so many e-books! I track all of my reading a separate excel sheet so I thought it would be fun to pull this graph and see the ration between physical, e-books and audiobooks I’ve read so far this year. I have no idea how this happened! Yes, I’ve been focusing a lot on ARCs, but I feel like I lost motivation to pick up books from my shelves.|
|3 – Read many ARCs!|
|Just when I thought that I got my ARCs under control, I received even more ARCs! Yay! 😀 I get too excited whenever I log on NetGalley and can’t seem to control myself, but I’m also so happy that I will get to read some of my most anticipated books earlier and share my thoughts with all of you.|
|4 – Join Read.Rate.Review Book Club.|
|I’ve been very into book clubs this year 😀 In February and March I joined the Literally Dead Book Club and read «The Other People» and «Platform Seven». The May pick is «Fragments of the Lost» by Megan Miranda, which I already read and reviewed a few years ago. |
Read.Rate.Review will be reading «The City of Brass»! I’m so excited to jump into this series, Merlin definitely sold it to me.
|5 – Finish all notes for exams.|
|This goal should probably be in the first place, but knowing myself I’ll most likely leave if for the last weeks of the month. I’ve been doing great progress in taking all the notes I need, however, I do need to speed up this process and complete everything before the end of May.|
|6 – Just stay on top of things.|
|It’s interesting how last month I needed to take things easier, so my goal was to relax, and this month I feel reinvigorated again to work, study, and do other million things on my To-Do list. But of course, I don’t want to overwhelm myself, so I feel like if I stay on top of everything I need to do, and don’t leave things “for tomorrow”, which I tend to do quite a lot, I’ll be fine.|
Taking into consideration all of my reading goals, here is my TBR for May and I’m so excited to read all of these books!
I hope May will be an incredible month for all of you [as far as possible]! And that we all read amazing books and find new favorites. ❤
Have you read any of the books on my TBR? What book are you the most excited to read in May?
