June 2019 Goals | ARCs, beach, and many blogging plans!

I have many plans for June. Let’s just hope that it doesn’t pass as fast as all other months did! Is it me getting old or time just started to go faster than usual???

May was a great month for me in terms of everything, except books, as you probably saw from my Wrap Up post earlier this week.

May 2019 Goals | Dandelions, sunny days and reading!

The fifth month of the year and my 5th set of goals! (Let’s pretend that I didn’t skip this post in February.) I don’t do well with monthly TBR, mostly because I never follow them, and feel forced to read certain books. But GOALS! They are so motivating!

I also love readings other’s monthly goals and see if I can steal some of them for myself 😀

April 2019 Goals | ARCs, Reviews and Read-a-Thons!

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.

March Goals | Or how to stay on track!

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!

An Overly Ambitious TBR | January 2019

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.

Current Reads · Week 24 | Tackling my TBR pile

CURRENT READS WEEK 24

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!).

Gray sky, cold wind and rainy evenings aside, let’s actually talk about some books, shall we? Continue reading “Current Reads · Week 24 | Tackling my TBR pile”

December TBR 2017 | Books I want to read before the end of the year!

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.

My aim for this December is to prioritize ARCs and all pending reviews! So this is exactly what I will be reading (maybe some Christmasy novels as well). Continue reading “December TBR 2017 | Books I want to read before the end of the year!”

Books about Ghosts to Read this Halloween!

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!”

October TBR | More reading goals and New Instagram feed!

Somehow I’ve already read three books this month. Does it mean that I am finally over my reading slump? Or will it haunt me forever from the shadows?

Let’s stay positive and hope that I will get through all of the books from my Autumn reading list and more! Continue reading “October TBR | More reading goals and New Instagram feed!”

Books I am reading this Autumn!

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!

Let’s start with my physical TBR pile. Most of these books are recent purchases and I can’t wait to pick one of them up on a cozy rainy day. Continue reading “Books I am reading this Autumn!”

September TBR | Hot Air Balloon, The Walking Dead & Reading Goals

What is blogging if not sharing your thoughts, interests and obsessions with others? That is exactly what I am going to do!

Firstly, I’ve been toying around with the idea of starting a Bullet Journal for quite a long time. I don’t want it as a planner though, rather to keep all my thoughts and ideas in one place. Maybe even to track some habits or blogging stats. Continue reading “September TBR | Hot Air Balloon, The Walking Dead & Reading Goals”

Epic Fantasy series I am interested in!

It’s been what feels like a very long time since I properly dove into the great fantasy worlds, full of magic, castles, knights and epic wars. And there is a great variety of new and old fantasy series and standalones to choose from!

These are just a few of the books I’ve got my eye on for quite a long time. I would love to hear your thoughts on any of them in the comments down below! Continue reading “Epic Fantasy series I am interested in!”

February TBR | 2017

As of right now it is minus one week in the already short month of February and I only read few pages of an ARC due by the end of this month. I can feel the reading slump closing in, I can even smell its filthy attempt to drag me into the world without books and reading!

This month I need to take things slow in terms of the reading and blogging spheres of my life and focus a little bit more on other things that are higher (sorry!) on my priority list at the moment – internship, papers, and work. Continue reading “February TBR | 2017”

December 2016 | Goals

So! DECEMBER! Can you believe that we are already in December 2016? It seems like the whole year just flew by! Where did Autumn go? Why is everything moving so quickly? Please, stop!

My TBR for the month of December isn’t anything out of the ordinary. I have some wonderful books sitting on my shelf waiting for me to pick them up, but since we all know how well I follow my TBR lists… let’s just make it a list of «Goals» this time! Continue reading “December 2016 | Goals”

Excited for November | TBR 2016

“November comes and November goes,
With the last red berries and the first white snows.

With night coming early, and dawn coming late,
And ice in the bucket and frost by the gate.

The fires burn and the kettles sing,
And earth sinks to rest until next spring.”
–  Elizabeth Coatsworth

Can you tell how excited I am for November and all the wonderful books on my TBR list??! Continue reading “Excited for November | TBR 2016”
