Monthly Wrap Up // June 2017

Monthly Wrap Up_zpshjihxrbe.png
We are now officially halfway through the year and I don’t know where time has gone! I really wish the year would slow down a touch so I could catch up. I feel like I just need to pause time for a week so I can figure out where I stand.

June has been a month plagued with reading slumps, it’s not been fun. I descended into a slump about the second week of this month and I’m still not out of it. I like to blame the heatwave we had here but I honestly don’t know why I fell into a slump but my enthusiasm for reading died a little. Hopefully, it will return in July, or at least with enough time to catch up on my ARCs.

Resolution Catch Up

  • I want to cut my unread bookstennant-crazy-laugh
  • I want to review more books on Goodreads – I am continuing my success on this and I have a vague Amazon routine too. I must improve my Amazon reviews.
  • I want to read 100 books – I hit 104 books! This may be one of my few successful goals.
  • Read more diverse books – I continue doing okay with this one. I want to find more diverse romance now.

2017 Discussion Challenge:
I’ve been pretty successful on this one. Below are all my discussion posts from the beginning of the year which I’ll be adding on to each month. I wanted to manage a discussion post a month, with me hoping for 20+ if it was a really good year. I may not manage 20+ but I’ve definitely gotten up more than one a month.

6/12 Categories
Halfway through, now I just need to allocate some books off of my shelf to the other 6 categories.

Shelf Love Challenge 2017

I’m not completely certain I’m doing well at this. I’ve read plenty of books from my shelves…. but I also keep adding to them. I have definitely purchased more than I’ve read and I sort of accept that my current process is not working for me. I am not good at long term commitment. I may just do a week every couple of months where I buy nothing and only read books off of my shelves (not ARCs). We’ll see.

How has your month been? Any favourite reads you need to recommend?
