Good morning, my friends!
Looks different here, huh? What do you think? 😁 I have to admit, I’m still not sure about the background but maybe I’ll just have to get used to it. I had two different kinds of background and I was just not really sure what to choose.
Anyway, I think it’s time to put some goals down for this month.
Goals for June
🦊 Goal 1 – Read and review eArcs/blogtour books
I might have requested some blogtour books a while ago and didn’t realize that they are all due in June. Oops. Now I have to read some books and write some blogposts and that’s why I’m sure that I’ll get some stuff done this month.
🦊 Goal 2 – Read at least 3 books from the tbr
I mean, as I said, I have a lot of blogtour books to read but I still want to read at least three books from my tbr. At present I have over 230 books on my tbr and I really need to get to that.
🦊 Goal 3 – Carry the book boxes down to the cellar
I sorted out some books last month and there are still some that are not in the right condition to sell them and since they got rid of the trading shelf when Covid started, I can’t take them there either. I don’t want to put them in the trash, so I packed them in a box and am gonna carry them downstairs for storage.
🦊 Goal 4 – Read a book with a LGBTQ+ character
Since it’s Pride month I wanna read at least one book with a LGBTQ+ main character. I haven’t decided which one yet though.
🦊 Goal 5 – Finish making the blog shiny and new
I mean, when this blog goes online then there is already a lot done. But there are some bits and ends that I still wanna make better and I hope by the end of the month it’s all done. Even the things I might have overlooked right now.
The Possibility Pile
🦊 Girl Giant and the Monkey King by Van Hoang. Actually, I have already started it and I’m so in love with it. My heart breaks for Thom and I’m weary of the Monkey King and I just want everything to be alright for Thom. I hope she grows into her powers instead of getting rid of them but we’ll see how this all turns out.
🦊 The Adventure is now by Jess Redman. I think this is gonna be a “live in the moment and be aware of the things around you” type of book. And I’m all here for it. I can’t wait to dive into this.
🦊 Die Chroniken von Mistle End – Die Jagd beginnt. While I prefer English books nowadays, I’ve fallen in love with this German Middlegrade. It’s about a village that is the last refuge of supernaturals high up in the north. And while it’s full of witches, elves and werewolves, it also has druids or gargoyles which is something you don’t see every day. This is the second book and I’m dying to know how the story continues.
🦊 Elephants can remember by Agatha Christie. It has Ariadne Oliver in it. ‘nough said.
🦊 The last fallen star by Gracie Kim. I got this one for my birthday, like an actual physical book instead of a voucher. And it’s a Rick Riordan book. I’m so hyped and can’t wait to read it.
🦊 The Edge of Strange Hollow by Gabrielle K. Byrne. I saw this at Dini’s Blog and was enchanted. I’m really curious about this one. Oh, magical forests and creatures. It’s gonna be so cool.
What are your goals for this month? Do you have a tbr or even a possibility pile? Do you know any of the books on my list?
