Hey everyone. A little while ago (or a long while ago) I was tagged by Bella at Bella Blogs Because Books to do the bookish personality challenge. I just want to preface this by saying that I find personality typing really interesting. And maybe this will help you all to know a little bit more about me personally.
Today I will be doing the OMG This Song Book Tag. This was created by Kate from Katesbookdate in early May… which I know was a while ago, but I was super busy and I have a lot more free time now and I have wanted to do this since I first saw Kate’s video. Basically for each of the topics you pick a song and a book that fits it, which sounds so unique. Recently a lot of my music has been from her recommendations, so this will be interesting.
I made a bunch of goals at the beginning of the year and now that it is half way through the year (ahh that doesn’t feel real) I am going to go over them and see how I am going. Some are going so well… some are going not so well.
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.
So I am actually really bad at getting as much reading done and I want to. No matter how much I want to read and how many awesome books there are out there I always manage to fill my minuscule amounts of free time in a different way. I get the feeling that if I asked for a show of hands there would be a lot of people agreeing that despite how much they love books, they wished they could read more.
Now if you’re expecting tips or something then sorry to disappoint because I have no idea how to fix this problem myself but I just thought I’d look at the reasons behind this problem.
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 was tagged in the blogger aesthetic award by Sydney from Sydney’s Shelves. This is a super fun tag where you make a little graphic of images that represent you. I will warn you that I am not a super aesthetic person, preferring functionality over appearances so this will be interesting.
I was nominated for this award by Ellyn from allonsythornraxx thanks you so much. (and I’m not just saying that because I have to). I’m excited to answer your questions.
Also, sorry I have been missing for a little while guys. My exam week has been tough but I am looking forward to returning with regular posts from now on.
My TBR is massive ok. Here is my journey in trying to get it to shrink. Hopefully this can help you too.
