The second half of 2017 has been very slow in terms of reading. I powered through many books in the beginning of the year and then it all started to go down hill. I have been reading but I don’t feel like I’ve been reading enough, if that makes sense.
First of all, let’s take a look at my September goals that I set up for myself in the beginning of the month: Continue reading “September Wrap Up | Not the greatest reading month!”
There are certain months that mean something for me. For example, December is filled with holiday spirit; March resembles the approximation of warmer Spring days and September marks a new working / school year, like a twin brother of January.
And then there are months that don’t provide anything but crowded beaches and hot weather, especially when you live at a tourist destination. That what August was like. Many people, many events, many cars on the roads and some extremely hot days. Continue reading “August Wrap Up | Reading demotivation & Fall expectations”
Maybe I should be reading all those SERIES I STARTED AND NEVER FINISHED instead? Maybe… But reading ARCs seems so much more appealing!
I definitely have a problem with the fantasy series but they will have to wait. Because it’s ARC August time! I will be participating in the 5th Annual ARC August, hosted by lovely book bloggers from Read.Sleep.Repeat

Is it just me or each month flies by quicker and quicker? I am here again to look back at the passing month and gather my thoughts before jumping into August.
July was a month of ups and downs. After my great reading in May and June, I expected July to be the same, especially because my anticipated books finally arrived and I was ready to dive in! But… it turned out I was very very wrong.
Let’s start from the beginning! Continue reading “July Wrap Up 2017 | Reading Slump & Booktube-a-Thon”
I was battling between the ideas of including this post in my July wrap up or writing a separate dedicated post just for the read-a-thon, and as my first ever reading event, I decided that it deserved its own well rounded conclusion!
I DID IT! I MANAGED TO COMPLETE ALL OF THE CHALLENGES!
It was a very intense reading week, as I usually don’t read that much, but it feels good to overcome my reading slump that haunted me from the beginning of July and actually make some progress through my TBR pile. Continue reading “Booktube-a-Thon 2017 | I did it! Completed challenges and wrap up!”
Just like the previous month, I will not be making a TBR list because (A) I am not sure what exactly I want to read and (B) it seemed to work better for me when I didn’t have to follow the list, but instead set up some small goals that I will strive to achieve during the month. Continue reading “July TBR 2017 | The month of massive fantasy series! + Reading Poll!”
Don’t you love it when the first day of the month falls on the weekend? Because I do! Perfect timing to wrap up the previous month and set up reading and non-reading goals for the next month, and just taking some time off to recharge!
June was one of the best reading and blogging month this year, hopefully it treated you well too! If you can recall, for my June TBR I decided not to make an actual To-Be-Read pile but small goals that would keep me motivated and it worked wonders! Continue reading “June Wrap Up | 2017 “
The most important thing that I noticed about myself ever since I’ve started this blog is that the better and more productive the month is, the more I want to achieve. Working on something that is only my own and seeing it coming together to more or less where I want it to be is a great, satisfying feeling! (Highly recommend to anyone, even if it’s as small as starting an Instagram page!) Continue reading “Goals June 2017 | When TBR is not enough to cover all the “wants” in my head”
