I had high hopes for this month because I had my holiday, however I didn’t actually get much done. Preparing for exams at school once I go back, participating in camp nanowrimo and trying to relax all at once meant I did each thing by half. I didn’t get as much blogging/writing/reading done as I had hoped, but at least I did something. I know it isn’t quite the end of the month yet, but this is just the best time for this post and I doubt I will get too much more done.
For the future, well my exams are coming up in a couple of weeks so I am going to try to get a lot of posts written before then do I don’t need to worry about it but we all know how I am with writing posts in advance. I am hoping to get up some book reviews for books I have read in the past little while so be on the look out for those.
Also note, you can click on any of the covers to go to that book’s goodreads page.
Books I Planned to Read
Books I Actually Read
So no school books… woops. And I also read LESS books than I usually do? Even though I had more free time? That always seems to happen to me in the holidays. I fully intend to do reviews for most of these books, I just haven’t gotten around to it yet.
Books I am Currently Reading
- Code Name Verity is a library book that is meant to be returned very soon, I am nearly done with it but the sequel is also due at the same time so I have to read fast
- Caraval I aimed to read in the holiday because I didn’t want to be carrying a hardcover around with me so I am around 50 pages in, but I didn’t get much further.
TBR for June
(very much the same as above)
Looks like I’m in for a month of school books… the whole last row. Apart from that I plan to finish the books I am currently reading and those due back at the library. And I’ve added Their Fractured Light because I usually listen to audio books during my exams for some reason. Plus The Pearl Thief is coming out this month, and as much as I would love to read it that really depends on whether I can find it. I doubt I will get further than this as much as I want to.
Camp Nanowrimo Results
Haha okay so this didn’t go so well. I lost inspiration part way through the month as to where my story was going. I plan to work on meshing towards the multiple different drafts I have, and for camp July I will probably have a minute goal instead of a word count one.
I ended up with a grand total of: 26 073 words which is still better than nothing. The scenes I got completed were good and have motivated me to try to keep writing throughout the school term if possible.
