Can you believe it's already the end of 2019?! It definitely was a roller coaster of a year for me. It was also crazy busy, so I decided to take things easier in the second half of the month. Holidays are coming and I need a bit of a break, so posts won't be as frequent as usually. But don't worry, we won't leave you alone for too long 😉
November is going to be a quiet (I mean boring) work month. I've nothing exciting planned, but I definitely will try to pay more attention to my own needs - meaning I've been so focused recently on working, reading, deadlines, pressure that I hardly left room for myself to relax. To just loose myself for a few hours in a game or do some colouring. So, that's my personal goal for the month, but no worries, I won't let you guys without some great content this month too!
I actually have things to look forward to! My UK trip for example. And we also will have a lot of SPFBO updates, so it'll be worth keeping an eye on the blog!
With September arriving the temperature dropped from 33 to 18 in a day - which I'm not complaining about, because fuck heat. Probably my brain will now will be able to process reading and stuff - once I finally get some normal rest, that is. As I've been lacking with a lot of things in August, September will be all about catching up and trying to squeeze in everything. I don't have much to look forward to this month, so no distraction.
August is here! I really can't believe how much of the year went away already. Did some pushed the fast forward button? It can't be August already! Feels like it was last week I decided to (throw money out of the window) go to the WorldCon and I'll be heading there in less than two weeks! I'm pretty sure it must be some kind of wizardry.
July is going to be... busy. And that's an understatement. With freelancing, SPFBO and ARC reviewing I'll have my hands pretty full. But hey, I got myself into this, so I can't really complain. I'm going to be very mysterious in this sneak peek, but believe me, you are going to love the things I'll bring to you this month and the wait (and torture) will be worth it! I just have to make sure my mental state is up to all these things...
June won't be any less exciting than May was, as things still keep happening. I finally started my new journey in life and I couldn't be happier. SPFBO5 is about to kick off as well and I'll be going to concerts too.
Exciting and at the same time terrifying things are happening to me these days and I can't wait to see where things lead me. May probably will be a slow reading month as a lot of things are going on, so bear with me. On the other hand, I'll catch up with reviews, so yay!
So, this is a slow week, and I was supposed to write a review, but I just can't be arsed to do it right now, so decided I'll bring back the Sneak Peek instead. It's been a while I had these monthly posts, but life was quite hectic and in the end I usually ended up with totally different reading schedules, lol. Well, I'm not going to pretend that I'll stick to this list, though I most probably will this time around.
November started with a nice long weekend, which I made longer by being sick. Yay me! On top of it some nice changes are going on in my life, so I could kick this month off on a good note. Honestly I don't expect much from this month excitement wise. I'll read a few books, will post things. We'll have all of our SPFBO semi-finalists ready too so the real fun can began.
October. I have a confession to make: this is the month I hate the most. Or more like, this month seems to hate me the most. Anyway, I'm determined to break the curse this year.
I like September. The weather cools to a bearable degree, I can get out my leather jacket and boots. Yay! Also, we are getting closer to BristolCon, only 1,5 months away now! SPFBO continues, the semi-finalists are getting announced slowly and things are getting interesting. Also, my blog will be six months old! Can you believe that? So let's see what I have in store for you this month!
I'm so excited! August will be fun. SPFBO had started yesterday and I decided to shake up my schedule a bit so I could fit some of my picks of the FBR lot in as soon as I can, so I'll have time to read our semi-finalists toward the end of the year. Maybe it's not a surprise by now, but I'm taking part in the competition as advisor for Fantasy Book Review. Soon I'll have my own SPFBO page up here on the blog and have some other plans in the making too regarding our 30 books 🙂
Here is what I plan to do in July: read, write reviews, host some authors, listen to music, redesinging and getting ready for #SPFBO 🙂 All fun stuff.
Here is what's to come in June: going to read @Willowhugger, @RoboftheHayes, @SmilingDarkly, @NadineBrandes, @David_Hambing. Extra shout out to @AdrianGdMag and @DominickMurray6 for their upcoming book!
