The Monthly Hufflepuff: May and June

Note to future self: Let’s not make this ‘two months in one wrap up’ thing a thing okay

We’re halfway through 2017 already?? I know these ‘I can’t believe how fast this year is flying by’ in pretty much every wrap up are getting old I’m sorry haha.

Nowadays it’s so exciting looking back on what I read since I don’t remember

So according to Goodreads May was not a good month: I only finished three comics. I did start Anne of Avonlea that month though, but still. I didn’t read much. June was a much better month

I completed my Goodreads goal! Which is not surprising looking at how many comics I have and am reading haha. My goal was to read 100 books, I read 113. I might change my goal to 200, but I’m not sure yet. While I’m loving the comics I’m reading, I do want to read more books haha

I thought I wasn’t doing so well when it came to my other goals, but hey I changed my blog’s design! Not by too much but it’s more colourful now which was my goal anyway.

Am I blogging regularly? No. Am I caught up on reviews? No. Caught up on tags? Hahaha *looks at tags from 2015* no. Let’s not even look at the other ones haha.

I didn’t post much during these two months so this should be a quick wrap up haha:

SUMMER VACATION. I have lots of plans and my back and neck pains (I mentioned those in my blogoversary post yesterday) better stop soon. Because I want to enjoy this vacation that I deserve after working my butt off all year. I’m already going to start a bit today by finally celebrating my birthday (which was June 6th so almost a month later haha) and my grandfather’s. While I’m still not feeling that well I am looking forward to it. Plus it will only be a small gathering with family so it’s okay if I’m not feeling that great.

Other than that I’ll be hopefully going to lots of museums, I also want to go to a castle, my mom and I will be going to a themepark next week and of course I want to read, write and blog a lot.

How has your month been? Any exciting plans for the summer? Best book you read this month? Let me know in the comments!

Goals for 2017 (Which I’ll Probably Fail At *cue maniacal laughter*)

Welp look at that negativity. I like to see it as realism though. Looking at the goals I set for myself in 2015 and 2016 and how many I failed at… Oh well, I still think it’s fun to set myself goals and it means I can make lists!!

As I’ve said in my December wrap up I’m no longer setting any reading goals for myself except for the Goodreads one (I’m once again aiming for 100 books), because at some point I forget about them anyway and it put too much pressure on me. Of course there’s a high chance that somewhere during the year I change my mind when I find a fun challenge to join haha.

So what goals am I setting for myself?

Writing 

  • Like last year, I’m setting up the goal of: just write 
  • Work on my grandfather’s biography
  • Work on all my outlines
  • Finish at least one of my WIPs
  • Maybe start the Young Writers Chat again

Blogging

  • Change my layout – I don’t think I’ll change my theme and I’m happy with my graphics, but I want my blog to be more colourful
  • Try to blog regularly again
  • Catch up on reviews
  • Catch up on tags
  • Become the Scheduling Queen™ I used to be again
  • Catch up on blogposts I need to read
  • Follow more blogs
  • Become more active in the blogging community again

I’ll probably come up with more goals throughout the year (though I hope not since I might not even complete these haha). So uh wish me luck?

What are your goals for this year? Are you setting yourself any reading goals? Let me know in the comments!
