It’s Friday, which means I’m
nearly finished with my first week of work since my holiday! Nope, scratch that. It means that I got sick yesterday and am at home today, so bye work!
However, I honestly never thought it’d be so hard to get back to work after being free for over two weeks, haha. My brain didn’t want to comprehend that vacation time was over and I had to get down to serious business again.
Anyway! When I wrote this post the first time, it was all excited because my birthday party is planned for tomorrow. Alas, I’m sick now so I’m more frustrated than anything else at this point. I’m going to sleep, sleep and sleep today in order to be okay tomorrow. Can’t miss my own birthday party now, can I?!
Especially since two bands are going to perform – and I’m paying them. Imagine not even being able to see their show.. Ugh.
Anyway! Time for some updates!
2017 Reading Challenges
Popsugar Reading Challenge
I’m going to have a more elaborate update for this challenge up tomorrow! So keep an eye out for that!
I had the courage to say that I would try to get my TBR-shelves from three to two.. But, obviously, that was before I got a whole bunch of books from my boyfriend..
So I’m changing this up! I’m going to try and get my physical TBR-pile from 125 books down to 100 before the end of the year!
What do you think? Will I be able to do this?
Extra Goodreads Challenge
I already finished the “usual” Goodreads challenge, but I’ve gotten annoyed with myself on something else. My “Currently reading”…
It’s been on 4 books for ages now. Always the one I’m really currently reading and then, well.. three others that I’ve been neglecting for months, haha.
Goal of the year: get that awful number down to zero! Or one, if I’m actually reading another book, doh.
Sequel September Update
These are the books I’ve already read! After these, I kind of went on a TBR-ignoring spree and read Warcross and an ARC I had to read soon.
Currently reading The Dream Thieves though, so I’m getting back on TBR-track!
How’s your Sequel September going?!
The future: update
Different parts for this one!
I’ve noticed that Sequel September had a lot of interest and, as such, I’ve been racking my brain to maybe find something for the following months as well. This means that we now have an OWNtober and – of course – there’s something for November as well: Remember November!
Signed up already?!
I’m going to try and do something like those challenges every month, since I noticed a ton of you like doing readathons like that. Watch out for more updates on that part!
You guys all know I’m all for Top Ten Tuesday and Waiting on Wednesday. Before my holiday, I asked you guys whether or not to add a Wednesday meme into the mix and I’ve decided I’m going to do exactly that!
Starting next week, you’ll find my WWW Wednesday posts so you can all see what I’m up to when it comes to my reading addiction!
I’ve mentioned it before, I’ll mention it again. I suck at lay-out / graphic stuff. I know I need to work on my blog when it comes to that; it has the potential to look a whole lot better than it does now but I.. just.. don’t know how?!
I’ll figure it out! And when I get there, when I’m finally proud of how it looks, I’ll probably be shouting it all over the place, haha.
Christmas card exchange
A whole bunch of you were enthusiastic about this, so I’m definitely going to go through with it, together with some help of Alex @ Coffeeloving Bookoholic. Keep an eye out for our posts on this!
Are you guys excited yet?!
I know I am!
How has your week been so far? Or more like, weeks?
I know I haven’t caught up with everyone’s posts but I’ll try to make some time for it soon!
