Getting out of my reading slump!

Hello lovelies!

You’ve heard it here first, but I am going to try and get out of my reading slump *gasp*. I’ve been in a reading slump and I blame two thing. First I finished Damaged Goods by Talia Hibbert and I got in a book hangover because it was too cute and I was on a warm and fuzzy cloud when I finished it. Second, I started watching Scandal. Oh my. I can’t believe I’ve never seen this show before. I am obsessed and I haven’t been able to do anything but binge-watch the first two seasons this week so here we are. One of my friends on Instagram challenged herself to reading 100 pages a day so I thought I’d do the same thing to get out of my slump. I’m truly hopeful to actually finish one of the four books I’ve started reading. I’m going to check in by the end of the week to see how it went!

Here’s my TBR for this week!!

I had been reading You Should See Me In A Crown by Leah Johnson when my slump came. I am hoping to finish this book this week! I only have 208 pages left so technically I should be able to finish it in two days.

I am buddy reading Kingdom of Flesh and Fire (637 pages) by Jennifer L. Armentrout with a friend over Instagram! I was kind of disappointed by From Blood and Ash so I’m hoping to enjoy this second book a little more. I’m trying to lower my expectations so I will hopefully be pleasantly surprised by this book. I don’t know if we will finish it this week but I’m hoping to make a dent in this beast.

I have been solicited by two authors to read their books and it’s high time I get around to them.

The first one is A Touch of Death by Rebecca Crunden (304 pages) and the second one is Merging The Drift by Tom Bray. These are not books I would typically go for, but I am super excited to step out of my comfort zone!

This is my TBR but then again, I’m a mood reader and I think I might change or add books along the week. Fingers crossed and see you in a week for the results!

Project – Reading 10 books in 3 weeks!

Hello lovelies!

I created a new book-related twitter account and it has highly inspired me to read more books this summer, especially since I now have the time to do so. This project is inspired by Laurie @ReadBetweentheSkylines who herself was inspired by Sasha @abookutopia (on youtube) who wanted to read 10 books in 21 days!

Here’s what I would like to accomplish:

  • I would like to read (at least) 10 books
  • Read most of the books on my physical and digital TBR
  • Get ahead on my Goodreads reading challenge
  • Post about the challenge
  • Review the books read for the challenge

My 2020 Reading Goals

Hello lovelies! Last post of the year! How quickly it went by…I am very excited for the New Year and everything it will bring. I am ready to start over! Hope you will all have an amazing year. In the meantime, here are my reading goals for 2020!

Read 50 books

This year I have managed to read 45 books and it’s pretty good but I want to read more and more consistently! So here’s to hoping I read 50 books in 2020.

Read more French and English classics

This is something I really wanted to do for a while. As a girl who will major in English Literature I feel like this is almost a given. There are so many great classics out there and I really want to read them this year!

Post more reviews

I started truly getting serious about my blog during the summer and it reminded me of how much I like to share my thoughts on books and discuss my favourite, quotes, characters and plots!
