Hello darlings! I'll try to keep this news post as brief as possible, but I have a lot I need to share with everyone.
First and foremost, hello summer vacation! This will be my very last summer off...ever. Or if I am unlucky and not able find a job after I graduate college. This is more depressing than I thought it would be, but YAY! Adulthood. I don't have any huge plans either, which is no fun. We have the whole broke college students thing going on, so big expensive vacation trips are out of the question. Which means I will also be missing Book Expo America this year. Boo. Did I mention how
My reading goal this summer is to complete at least 50-60 books. More would be awesome, but I don't want to push myself. I have until August 27th to meet my goal before I start my fall semester. We'll see how it goes. I don't want to make any promises. My summer vacation is already off to a semi-rocky start (2nd day of vacation and I have a major head cold), but I'll do my best to make our blog a bit more active.
I do have some great things planned that are coming up soon. For starters, any book that I review from now until August 27th will be accompanied by a giveaway, so make sure you visit all of my review posts! I'm doing this for a couple of reasons: One- you are awesome. Two- because of this:
That's a photo I took a week or so ago of my giant floor-to-ceiling bookshelves. There is a third side to it that is completely full. That empty shelf on top? Yeah, that is full, too. In other words, I have a
hoarding collection problem. I need to slim out some of my stuff so it doesn't start to take over our house. A lot of the books I plan on reading this summer I have two of, so lots of giveaways will be going on.
In addition to review book giveaways, I've also signed up for some book tours and giveaway hops, book blasts and cover reveals. Most of those do not start until the middle of June and some will be happening later in the summer.
I'm not sure how many news posts or opinion pieces will be going up. To be honest, after my spring semester at school, I am sick of writing papers. I'd like to keep these kinds of posts to a minimum over my vacation.
Most likely, I still won't be posting every day, but it should be a lot more active than it has been the last few months. I have other things I would like to enjoy over my last free summer, although reading is a top priority since I wasn't able to do much of it over the winter.
-I'm giving away a lot of books this summer.
-I'll be reading a lot.
-I'm sad that adults can't have off work all summer and yes, I know. Life isn't fair.
So what is everyone else doing this summer? Any big plans you want to share
to make me jealous? Or will you be keeping it low key?
