Another month, another
TBR batch of unrealistic goals ~
June was a pretty solid month, aside from the world being on fire. In my home, though, we had my son’s birthday (he turned 6!), so that was exciting, and I read more in June than I have for the past several months. I did hit a gaming slump, but I don’t really mind that since I’m not streaming anymore — it just meant more free time for reading, lol!
June goal check-in:
- Read everyday ✅
- Catch up on all of my buddy reads ✅❌ (aaaalmost!)
- Catch up on all of my unwritten reviews ✅❌ (I only have a couple left to write, and I wrote all of my ARC reviews, so I’m counting this one as a success for the most part!)
My goals for July are:
- Read a short story every day (we’re getting a little more specific with this goal!)
- Read 20 books or more (I haven’t done this in a long time, but Graphicsathon is coming up, which will help)
- Post 3+ tags (I have a list a mile long to catch up on!)
The Books Out of the Blue bingo event is still going on until the end of July, but I decided not to make a bingo-specific TBR for this month because I’ve just been putting books into prompt spots as I read them and it’s been working out pretty well for me so far! My list is very long this month and I know I won’t get to them all, but the goal is just to read as many as possible. A lot of these are buddy reads, and quite a few are also very short!
