I have some very exciting news. For the past few months, I have been thinking about getting my own domain and create a new blog. I have been debating with myself a lot about whether I really wanted it or not, but there are so many possibilities when I host my own blog instead of this wordpress.com blog that I decided to do it. That’s why from today on, there won’t be any updates on this blog. I moved all my content to my new blog, and all the new updates and posts will be uploaded only on that blog. If you were following me on bloglovin, you will automatically follow my new blog. And if you weren’t following me already, please start following my new blog if you want to keep up to date with what I read and my reviews. I’ll see you over at http://sheblogsaboutbooks.com!
Last Thursday I had my last final, and today I handed in my last essays, so this means that IT’S SUMMER! Finally, because I’ve been waiting for this moment for weeks. The weather in the Netherlands has been great but all I could do was sit inside and study, instead of going out and enjoy the sun. But it’s all over now and I have plenty of time to enjoy the weather, but I also have time to read and blog again! That’s why I have set up this little challenge for myself: the Summer of 50. Some other bloggers and youtubers have set themselves the challenge to read 50 book this summer, but I want to take this challenge a little differently. I don’t like the idea of pushing myself to read a certain amount of books, because reading should be something I do for fun and not something I have to push myself to. However, I feel like I have to push myself a little more to write more blogs, so therefore I have decided to challenge myself to write 50 blog posts this summer. And it’s not like I don’t enjoy blogging, on the contrary! I love it, but I am also very lazy so I just need that little push to actually do it. So, with this post I am challenging myself to write at least 50 blog posts before university starts again, which will be on September 1st.
Concerning my reading plans for this summer, I don’t really have a set plan. As I already said, I don’t like focusing on a number, but I am definitely planning on reading a lot. My birthday will be on June 29th so I think I will receive either some books or some gift cards so I can buy some books. I also recently bough City of Bones, which I absolutely want to read this summer, and if I like it I’ll probably buy the other books in the series as well. And I think I will also be reading a lot of contemporaries, because somehow contemporaries seem to be perfect for summer. I don’t really have any more plans for reading this summer, but since I will be blogging a lot, I will keep you up to date with what I’m reading! Also, if you want to follow my reading progress during the summer you can follow me on Twitter of add me as a friend on Goodreads
What are your reading plans for this summer?
Some time ago, I came across the instagram of fellow book-blogger Lauren, at laurenreadsYA , and I saw she was dooing the 100 happy days challenge. 100 happy days is a challenge to daily take a picture of something that makes you happy. I decided I’d participate as well, and although I’m not very good at the daily part of this challenge, I am regularly taking pictures of something that makes me happy. But some days, when I just have to work or go to uni the entire day, I don’t think of making a picture for this challenge. And I know this is not entire book-related, but I nevertheless wanted to share this on my blog since there are some pictures in here of books, since books make me happy. 🙂 Click on ‘continue reading’ if you want to see the first 25 pictures that I took in this challenges! Oh, and if you want to keep up to date with this challenge, you should follow my instagram!
April is such a great month concerning new releases! Unfortunately I am completely broke and I can’t buy any more books this month, but as soon as I have money again I am sure I will buy at least one of these books! All of these books have just been released or will release in the next few days. Around some of them have been quite some hype, especially on booktube, which made me want to read the books even more! They are mostly contemporary or light reads, but that certainly is what I’ve been in the mood for lately! I think it has to do with the fact that last we had a few very summery days and I even sat in my backyard in my bikini, so I feel like summer already. Unfortunately the weather is now terrible again and I’m listening to the sound of the rain on the window while writing this.
