I READ 100 PAGES EVERY DAY IN MARCH *FAIL* // Aka. The Month I Got Distracted By Keanu Reeves Movies And Forgot To Read (I’m Sorry)

allonsy_chats_discussionsfeature

Hi all! Welcome back to my blog! Today I’m coming at you with a wrap up of sorts! I’ve decided to try and incorporate more challenge-style posts into my blogging schedule since you guys asked for that. So, this month (these may not be monthly btw, I’m not BooksandLala) I decided to sort of test the boundaries around my reading since I’m usually very much a chill reader, and just pick up a bok when I want to. I wanted to test myself a bit but also try and moderately track my reading habits!

So, I decided to read 100 pages a day in March! That being said, how could I know how stressful March was going to turn out?!

I thought about restricting my reading to only 100 pages a day but that would mean only reading 3100 pages all month, and sometimes I just want to keep reading if I’m really into a book. The whole point of the challenge is to motivate me to read regularly (or at all) or to remind me to read every day, not to police or restrict a page number each day.

All that being said, I plan my blog content pretty far in advance, so I did forget I had this planned for the month, but I remembered pretty quickly, so this isn’t wholly accurate, but it’s pretty damn close!

MARCH WRAP UP | What a stressful month! So much Keanu Reeves!

wrapupfeature1

Hi all, welcome back to my blog! March is finally over! I’ve got a post coming tomorrow talking about how my reading went for the month, so look out for that! It was quite a month because I was fully back into my Uni schedule which meant I suddenly had 3-4 hours of pure reading time on the bus at the start of every week! (for the start of the month, at least) So, I’ve been getting a lot of audiobook listening done, which has been really helpful for me!

In February I read 28 books but, this month I managed to read 11which seems like a lot less but considering this month was such a mess,Β I’m really proud of myself, especially since I enjoyed so much of what I read! Honestly, so far this year I’m really kicking my reading goal out of the water and I’ve never read this fast in just a few months! I already can’t wait to look back on my reading later in the year to see how my reading goes!

FEBRUARY WRAP UP! | #GraphicsReadathon

wrapupfeature1

Hi everyone! So, February is officially over, or it will be in a few hours! What a month, am I right??

I’ve officially started uni for the year and it’s already way too stressful also the weather has been nuts this month and apparently, wild weather sets my anxiety off like nobody’s business, who knew! I also started up work again this month and honestly, it’s been completely chaotic and I already can’t wait for school holidays so I can take a break from those kids because I just do not have that level of energy.

In terms of reading, this is probably the best month I’ve had in a really long time and I’m not gonna lie, it felt amazing! I was reading practically every day and it shows! In January I had a lot of screen time but February was 100% a reading month and I’m honestly super proud of everything I read because I found some new favourites and a lof other books I read also gave me some fun ideas for future content!
