Hello everyone! Happy July, the middle of summer :) To kick off July, I'm going to do a lil classic goals post to motivate myself to get things done. During summer, I'm usually lazy and not willing to do much, but I'm hoping that these goals will help me to do more things, and that the thought of having a TBR waiting for me will motivate me to pick up my book. Enjoy!
- Keep up a blogging schedule of posting every other day/posting every 2 days. In June, my biggest trouble with the blog was not posting much, which I had been able to keep up since the beginning of my blog. In July, since I'm basically doing nothing, I really hope to post a lot more, and give out posts with more quality and creativity.
- Complete Camp NaNoWrimo. I didn't do Camp in April because I was a wimp, but I think I can change that now. I'm writing a fanfiction for Camp this year, not as stressful because I've been out of writing well for months now, so I'm going to take it slow. My goal is 30k, the same as for all the Camp NaNos I do, so that isn't as stressful either.
(It's a Harry Potter AU where Harry died in DHPt2 and if Neville didn't exist, and it's sad. Like make the author cry while writing it, sad)
- Hang out with a friend every week. I've decided to be more social this summer. I almost NEVER hang out with my friends over the summer, for I'm an antisocial freak, and it's kind of depressing. I'm determined to change that. A friend is coming over in an hour, so I already got a head start on that (and I need to speed up this post okay cool.)
- Not go into a reading slump, and attempt to read daily. Don't get me wrong, I love reading (I mean I should), but it's hard to remind myself sometimes. It's not that I have to force myself to pick up a book, it's just that it's hard sometimes to put down my computer and calm down. During the school year it's 10x easier because it's like sometimes in the school day, all I can do is read. But in the summer it's like overwhelming with millions of things to do. Does anyone understand?
I'm going to lay it low with the TBR and give myself only 4 books to read, so it isn't 100% overwhelming.
P.S I Still Love You - Jenny Han / I finally picked up this book after months of being on my TBR..
Anna and the French Kiss - Stephanie Perkins / Trying to read more books off my shelves.
The Copper Gauntlet - Holly Black&Cassandra Clare / Picked this up weeks ago, never read it..
Shiver - Maggie Stiefvater / More Maggie Stiefvater? Sign me up.
Let's be productive this July! I hope I possibly motivated you to create some goals of your own for this month :D
Reading is fun and I always need more recommendations, so what is your July TBR or what books are you looking forward to reading this summer? (i have a gigantic TBR already but why not make it monstrous eh?)
Thanks for reading,
