Whenever I write these posts, I try to answer several questions: What do I want to achieve next month? What do I need to work on? What steps will bring me closer to my goal?
Usually, the answers would be to STAY PRODUCTIVE! MOVE FORWARD! and everything with a similar vibe. But April will be slightly different. Of course, there are still books to read and blog posts to write; but my intention is to take is easy.
Let me start by saying that this post is not going to be a guide of any sort. More so a reminder to myself on how to stay focused on my Reading and Blogging Goals and learn to manage my time better because who doesn’t want that!
I shall start this year strong! Hence, I picked a total of 9 (yes, you heard me right – NINE) books to read in January. It’s been a while since I was able to read more than 6 books per month, and my internship started this week. But I believe in myself! And big books don’t scare me at all. (well.. maybe a little bit).
Sadly, many new books released in January won’t arrive in time for me to read them all in January. They will just have to queue for the next month’s TBR.
It is currently 10th of June, but it feels like 160th days of January (I did the math, today is, officially, the 160th day of the year and end of Week 23) because the weather has been abnormally horrible, the summer doesn’t seem to rush to Portugal this year. I feel sorry for the numerous tourists who decided that May / June were the perfect months to come out on holidays. (which they usually are!).
There is only one month left before the end of this year and there are still a huge amount of books I would like to read before the 31st of December. I think it will always be like this , no matter how many books I manage to read each year.
The spooky 31st night of October is approaching and there is nothing quite like scary stories to add to the Halloween spirit. Not everyone celebrates this holiday, but each year there are more and more adepts of wearing creepy costumes and eating abnormal amount of candies (thanks to the Americanization!).
Books about ghosts was the obvious choice. After all Halloween began as a pagan holiday – Samhain, when the veil between the world of the living and the dead was so thin, people believed that spirits could cross over. Bonfires and costumes were supposed to ward them off. Continue reading “Books about Ghosts to Read this Halloween!”→
According to the Astronomical calendar, Autumn begins today, on the 22nd of September!And to celebrate the beginning of Autumn I thought I’d share the list of the books I am most excited to read during this wonderful season!
