i read 10 2022 releases in 7 days | christina lauren, emily henry, nikki castle, f. t. lukens etc.

Hey everyone, welcome or welcome back to my blog! I’m starting to get into doing week-long challenges here on my blog (I recently did a challenge where reading was the first thing I did in the morning) and I’m really enjoying them! This year I’ve also been falling behind on reading the new releases on my tbr, so last week I read only 2022 releases! My goal is a book a day but we’ll see how that goes 😓 lol, either way, I am really excited to hopefully read from some favourite authors this week and hopefully, find some other authors I love too (and finally read some more new releases!)

→ Side note: I’ve also included all of the tropes that fit into the books I read this week just in case any of them spark your interest! Let me know if this is something you’d like to see me continue to do in the future!

Here’s how it went! ⬇️⬇️⬇️

i woke up at 6̶A̶M̶ 7AM every day for a week + the first thing i did was read: an experiment *fail lol*

Hi everyone. welcome or welcome back to my blog! Today I’m doing something a bit different and showing you a week in my life! Last week I did a mini-experiment with my sleep schedule and I documented it here! This is a bit new for me and my blog but I really enjoyed doing this so don’t be surprised if you see more posts like this on my blog in the future!

the rules

  • wake up anywhere between 6 and 7 (but 6am is obviously the goal) LOL
  • the first main thing I do is read – so no scrolling on my phone, but obviously letting the dog out or making breakfast is okay.

the goal

  • I don’t so much have a goal, as I would just like to see if this is something that I am capable of doing to try and change my daily schedule around to hopefully change my sleeping schedule. I’m an insomniac so I have no idea if this will work for me, but I think it’s worth a shot and, doing this for content gives me a little bit more motivation to actually get up in the morning!
  • I also think this will just be great for my general productivity every day and I’m really hoping I’ll read some great books too since I haven’t been loving everything I’ve been picking up lately.

what i expect will happen

I honestly expect that I will fail hard at this and that reading will not end up being the first thing I do when I wake up each day. But, I hope that I will be able to persuade myself to get up between 6 and 7 and maybe listen to an audiobook while I play some Animal Crossing. Is playing a video game any better than scrolling on my phone when I first wake up? No, but at least working on my island will be more productive than doom scrolling. I’m also hoping that this will at least wake me up a bit more since going on my phone seems to make me more groggy than anything else.
