It feels like it’s been so long since I last wrote a blog post. I’m so sorry. I have been busy with school and the books I have read this month have all been school ones. It hasn’t been a great reading month unfortunately. I know I’ve said it before, but I do aim to write a bunch of blog posts in advance in the holidays. Additionally I plan to read a lot, catch up on homework (I have three assignments) and also participate in camp nanowrimo. I’ve got a busy month ahead.
It’s that time of the month again, my favorite post to write – the wrap up and tbr. I used to not like these because I felt like people wouldn’t be interested in writing them. Then I stopped caring because putting them together was so much fun for me, I was interested to see what I had read over the month and I found it helpful to plan out what I was going to read the next month. And I’m glad to say that you guys seem to like it? So that’s great.
The main non book related thing that happened in May was my school exams which were kind of stressful but they’re over now and I did well. Remember you can click on the book covers to go to goodreads.
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.
It’s time for my monthly wrap up and april tbr. I have my holidays coming up in April so I plan to get through a LOT of books. That means this will be a large tbr. Camp nanowrimo is also coming up in April so I plan to get a lot of writing done. Also, I have become more technologically literate so you can click on the book cover to go to the book’s goodreads page. What progress I have made!
just a note: I didn’t do much this month, school has been super busy for me so that has had to be my focus. Despite reading ten books in January I only read half that this month – although this still means I am on track for my goodreads reading goal of one hundred books this year.
I had a lot of goals for January, namely the twenty books I thought I was going to read. Haha as if… Read on to see how I did and what books I plan to read in February.
