2020 Mid Year Goals & Reading Challenge Update

basically, a post where I really surprise myself


Good morning, amigos!!! I hope you’ve all been having a great start to your week! Today I’ll be doing an update on all my bookish and not so bookish goals that I made at the start of the year. I’ll also be sharing what I’ve read for the 4 reading challenges that I’m doing.

To be honest, I’m pretty surprised with how well I did in some aspects, and of course, not so surprised that I failed in others. Lol, let’s get started!

The Mid Year Book Freak Out Tag // basically a really long post where I talk about great books

Hey y’all!! Welcome back. Today, you get to torture treat yourself to this wonderfully long post talking about the awesome books that I’ve read so far this year.

You’ll also finally be getting an idea of what I’ve been reading since May. I think I’m just going to wait until my Monthly Wrap-Up for June to talk about every book since then, but a couple of the ones I mentioned are ones that I’ve read recently.

This post is kind of long, so, let’s get right into this! I wasn’t actually tagged for the Mid Year Freak Out, but everyone’s doing it, so I’m hopping on the bandwagon and doing it too.

Good day dear bookish friends! Welcome back to my little corner. I hope you have some tea, because it would be a bore to read this without some! Add a little cookies too; don’t worry, I won’t tell anyone!

And of course, to wrap it all up, I shall share some lovely reads from these bygone eras that I think would warm your little hearts.

Get to know me by my bookish habits and favorites // The Who Am I? Book Tag (round 2)

I’ve already done this before, but I’m still going to do it again.

A lot of things have changed since my first time doing this nearly a year ago (will be exactly a year this Saturday) and I now have some new favorites and possibly a whole new outlook on life, so I’m curious to see how my answers will differ this time around.

Many thanks to the amazing Nikki @ The Night is Dark and Full of Books for tagging me! (and I’m so sorry for taking 6 months to finally do this!!)

Let’s get started!!
