May goals recap + summer goal setting hiatus
Happy Tuesday!! I am on the brink of sharing a whole bunch of awesome exciting news with you folks, but in the meantime will continue letting the world turn at a normal pace. I'm here to share my last goals recap for the season, as the Choose Your Own Adventure linkup is taking a summer hiatus. And, since I'm a week late to post, I may very well be the last person to post about their May goals!
May's theme was read.This seemed like an easy one for a bookworm. The irony, of course, is that I read a wee bit less than usual this month and was too swamped with life happening around me to push myself to stop and read for the sake of the linkup. Which, let's face it, is really unusual for me. It's often the blog pressure that gets my sh*t done!
May reading goals recap:
1. Update my 2015 book pledge list (80% Success)
My goal was to have all the books I plan to read, have already read, and and am in the process of reading up to date online. I'm fairly consistent at updating my Already Read list, and got a bit better at updating my Currently Reading list... but my To Be Read list couldn't possibly be up to date. I have a plethora of books I am "going to read next", and there's no way a reading list would even be accurate. With that in mind, I gave myself an A equivalent. Because, life.
2. Blog about some of my favourite books (50% Success)
This was actually pretty fun, but didn't go as far as I was hoping. I will likely keep this going throughout the summer, while I also re-evaluate some of the other blog series I've started and stalled on. I have read SO MANY BOOKS you guys. I don't know why these posts have been so slow to come to fruition!!
3. Read something local (50% Success)
I have been reading a short story collection by Richard Wagamese, which I am loving. I also bought a book by local gem Amy Jones, who I be-fan-girled via Twitter and almost met at a sushi restaurant once. In my defence, I ordered Amy's book with something that delayed the shipping so I didn't have time to crack it open as part of the May reading madness. But rest assured that will be read before the sun goes to hibernate for the 8 month Thunder Bay winter.
