You may have noticed that I didn’t post a Third Quarter update when I was supposed to, that’s because I really struggled with reading in the middle portion of this year. Things were a bit slow so in the end I just decided to do a long post towards the end of the year instead, so I advise you to go grab a cup of tea or coffee which ever you prefer, you’ll need it because this is a long one. I have split it into two parts so that it’s hopefully easier to digest, the first will be my reviews for the third quarter and part two will be my forth quarter reviews and conclusion.
I’m sure by now you know that I’ve been doing a reading challenge this year, which I’ve been thoroughly enjoying and in addition to my quarterly posts, I wanted to share some additional book related content, so I thought I would share some free printable bookmarks because when reading its important to have something to mark your page so you don’t forget where you were up to, right.
In today’s post I’ve provided some free printable quote bookmarks, these bookmarks are for personal use only, meaning you can print them off for yourself or a friend but you can not resell them in digital or printed form. Anyway I do hope you enjoy them and feel free to tag me on Instagram at @ erin_applebee if you do print them off and use them.
I can’t believe how fast this year is going, in today’s post I will be sharing with you my ‘Second Quarter’ Reading Challenge Update, how crazy is that, 6 months of the year gone already I can’t believe it.
The first month of this quarter I started off pretty good and I read through ‘The Hunger Games’ pretty quickly, I think it may have been a matter of a couple of weeks and then I moved on to Cassandra Clare’s ‘Infernal Devices’ trilogy. This one I could have finished in a month but I found myself feeling a bit tired and I didn’t feel like reading much. I was going through binge watching TV Show’s faze, still kind of there but anyway my reading for this quarter could have been better but what can I do really, other than try better for the next quarter.
In today’s post I’ll be sharing with you my ‘Bookshelf Tour’. As you might know I’ve been posting about my 2020 Reading Challenge recently and I thought it would be fun to share some additional book or reading related content as well. I’ve been loving watching other people’s bookshelf tours as well as other book or reading related content recently, so I thought I would share my ‘Bookshelf Tour’ with you.
As you might know I started of this year setting myself a reading challenge, the challenge was to shop my bookshelf (sort of) and read as many books on my shelf as possible (in one year).I have already set a list for myself of the books that I would like to read, a lot of them being ones that I have been wanting to read but haven’t got quite gotten there, yet; as well as a couple that may need to be purchased but the main idea is to read what I already have before purchasing more.
In this update post I will be sharing with you the books that I have read in the first quarter of the year and what my thoughts are one them.
