Summer flew by so quickly this year. It was hectic, busy with tons of tourists around. They haven’t all left yet, but I’m already anticipating the emptier roads, less traffic and supermarkets without huge lines.
September will be a busier month work and studies wise, but I’m still planning to take at least one week off work and maybe go somewhere or decompress a little bit before jumping into another busy year.
I hope you all had a very productive July and enjoyed the Reading Rush readathon! The Reading Rush, formerly Booktube-a-thon, is by far one of my favorite read-a-thons. I love how big the reading community is, how many events happen in just one week and the need to push myself to read just a little bit more to complete all the challenges!
This one week of intensive reading got me out of the reading slump and made me excited again about picking up new books. So my August goals might seem too ambitious but I’m going to try and read as much as I can.
It’s time to sit and write down my goals for this month!
July will mostly be the month of “catch up”. I feel like I need to clear up my To-Do list (and as soon as possible), so I can have some free time for myself. I know I say this every month, but life has been very busy overall and dedicating time to blogging and reading has become more and more difficult over the past couple of months.
I love the busy days, but I think I’m ready to take a little break from them as well. I won’t have holidays from work until September, but that doesn’t mean that I can’t take things a little easier over the next couple of weeks. But in order to do that, I’ll need to tie all the ends, finish pending tasks and then enjoy my reading time!
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 😀
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!
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
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”→
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”→
I would like to start this topic by saying that I have never had any problems before with TBR lists, annual, monthly, weekly or anything at all, until I started writing about them, publishing pictures of my TBR piles and Books to Read in . Continue reading “Problems with Monthly TBR Lists”→
