2019 Reading Goals ||”And now we welcome the New Year, full of things that have never been”

It is again that time of the year when all goals seem achievable and people are excited to make plans for the future. I didn’t want to be an exception to this rule. Let’s be honest, no one likes to be the black sheep in the herd.

I even tried to make my Reading Goals to look as appealing as possible, in the desperate belief that the visuals will help me to stay on track throughout the whole year, and not just January!

Classic-a-Month | Reading challenge Update!

It has been a while since my last update, but I’ve been keeping good pace and reading those classics as planned! Also I couldn’t be happier with my printable and have been using it since January to track my progress. Continue reading “Classic-a-Month | Reading challenge Update!”

Booktube-A-Thon 2017 | Reading challenges, high hopes and TBR!

I am sure you all have heard of Booktube-A-Thon and seen a lot of announcement videos about it on YouTube. Obviously, I don’t make YouTube videos, but I would love to join the reading challenges.

Booktube-A-Thon will start on the 24th and end on the 30th of July, and even though I will have my usual work schedule, I have faith in my reading abilities to complete all of the challenges (maybe except the last one…).

Classic a Month | Reading Challenge

The new year started on a very high note, with many new books and of course with the first classic of the year – «Pride and Prejudice» by Jane Austen. I bought this beautiful (very classic) edition in Russian and absolutely devoured it!

It turned out to be way more interesting than I expected it to be, as I am not a fan of romances (and for some reason I associated it to be a pure romance) but it was so much more! It’s one of the best «character» novels that I’ve ever read.   Continue reading “Classic a Month | Reading Challenge”

First Time Participating in Bookish Bingo | Winter Edition

There is a first time for everything, right? I usually don’t tend to participate in read-a-thons or other challenges because… I am not sure why! Can’t handle the pressure? Don’t read quick enough? I don’t know!

Bookish Bingo by Bekka @ PrettyDeadlyBlog looks so good that I just have to give it a try!  Continue reading “First Time Participating in Bookish Bingo | Winter Edition”

2017 Resolutions | It is time for a NEW ME!

It is the 2nd of January and I have only just started to write down my resolutions for the New Year. Way to be organized!

This time around, the end of the year felt very overwhelming. There were too many things to do (or too many things I wanted to do) but I wasn’t fully prepared for.

Being a fanatic organizational and a control freak (Yes, here. I admit it), the moments of my life when I can’t fully grab the reins of the time horse translate a lot onto my mood and well-being. This year it is all about to change! (Hope big or Go home!) Continue reading “2017 Resolutions | It is time for a NEW ME!”

2017 Reading Challenge + Free Printable!

UPDATE: Download the updated version of Classic-a-Month printable for 2019!

It’s the last day of the year and frankly, I am (A) very glad that 2016 is finally over and there is a chance that 2017 will be so much better, and (B) stupefied about how quickly time has passed!

One of the things that I want to improve in the coming year is reading classics! I say it every year and every year I failed miserably. Continue reading “2017 Reading Challenge + Free Printable!”

GoodReads 2016 Challenge Completed!

I did it, guys! My yearly goal was not very high this time – only 50 books. But I am so proud to be completing this ahead of time!

(Also I just bought a bunch of AMAZING books that should be arriving soon, so I hope to go crazy mode in November! i.e. Closing myself in the room and reading 24/7!)

If anyone interested to see what books I read this year, here is the link —-> GoodReads Challenge 2016

Have you completed your GoodReads challenge this year? If not, how many books do you have left?

Love,
