Revisiting | Book Buddy Picks My Books Vol. 2

revisiting

So it has been some time since I mentioned by ______ Picks My Books series I did in 2018. I honestly got so caught up in my own books and just kept putting the books off for one reason or another. But, I am happy to say that I can finally do a bit of an update. If you want to read the rest of the series,  I will link that below for you.

The Books

The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Huge

The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo

I ended up liking this book so much more than I thought I would. I normally rarely read about celebrities or actors I like in real life, so I always thought, “Why would I care about one that didn’t even exist?”. Well, I have to say that this book proved that point wrong. Within the first chapter I was already hooked. They methods used by the author to tell Evelyn Hugo’s story were wonderful and made it feel so tangible. Not only did the author tell an addicting story of this woman, but she told a story of so much more than that. That is the part of the story I did not expect and loved. The author did some great things with this book and I highly recommend. Review first published here: Weeks in Review | November 4th-November 10th.

All the Ugly and Wonderful Things by Bryn Greenwood

All the Ugly and Wonderful Things

So, I need to admit something here. I ended up DNFing this book. I read about 50 pages of it and while I enjoyed it very much while reading it. Once I put it down I just did not want to pick it up again. I cannot pin point the reason why, but I just didn’t feel the need to. Like I said, I enjoyed what I read, so I am even more confused. The writing was good, the story was interesting. I just think it was a case of the right book at the right time. I think I may try it again in the future, we shall see. I would suggest that you try it for yourself, I am a huge mood reader and in this case I think I was simply not in the mood.

DividerOverall, I am so happy with Jenna’s choices. I absolutely loved The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo, I was in shock at how much I liked it because I usually don’t enjoy books like this at all. While I DNF’ed the other book, I still think it is a good book, I just think I read it at the wrong time and I may give it another shot later on when I am more in the mood for something like that.

Anyway, thank-you for reading and thank-you so much Jenna for picking books to add to my TBR!

Bullet Journal Revisited| June 2018

Recs

So, earlier this month I finally ended up sharing my bullet journal with all of you. Now I was thinking maybe you all would also enjoy seeing how it looks when the month is all finished? I figured I would try it out as well and see what everyone thinks.

Nothing really changed in my heading page or my calendar, in fact I don’t think I looked at this calendar once. I am not sure if it is because I did not have a ton to do, or it is not a useful tool to have in here. I think I will be seeing if I use it in July or not to determine if I will continue to add this in the future.

On the left hand side you can see all the posts I posted this past month, while when this picture was taken before the end of the month you can see I have some things written in pencil and some things written in pen. The items written in pen are posted or scheduled, the items in pencil are a rough idea of what I am thinking about posting. This means it may or may not happen or I might post something else entirely. I never stick to this throughout the month, that is why it is always in pencil first.

On the right hand side you can see my monthly stack. I did not create the image, I found it on google and printed it out as a guide. I write the name of the book I finished and then color it when I get around to it.

On the left hand side you can see I kinda stuck to my TBR. I ended up reading 3 of the 5 I planned on reading. For me this is not bad at all since I am a complete mood reader. I don’t think I have ever stuck to a TBR 100% and I don’t think I ever will either.

On the right hand side you can see the books I picked up this month. Since doing my read 5 buy 1 challenge I have slowed down a lot, but I am so happy about it. I am more picky about what I add to my TBR and I tend to read them a lot faster as well.

As of writing this it is June 26th, I have read every day, but this image was taken a few days ago so my color is not up to date.

On the left hand side you can see my update of my Read 5 buy 1, some of the books I bought this month the read 5 page is actually in the previous month. I am not sure if I want to transfer the 3 I have read so far into next month or just leave it here and when I get to a new 5 write into next month. I have a bit of thinking to do.

On the right hand side you can see I mainly only tracked myself going to the gym. As of writing this I went a total of 9 days with a goal of 12. I do have a few days left so I am going to make sure I meet my goal.

Here is just a little peak into my reading progress doe a few of the books I read in June. I am almost caught up with my buddy read a well. Yay!

I kinda participated in the Cramathon this month and here are the books that I planned on reading. The ones with a check next to them are the ones I completed.

This last image is just a picture of a card I got with my order of my new fountain pen. I actually have 3 of them, but I wanted a new one.  I thought the elephant was so adorable I needed to have it in my bullet journal just to look at.

What did you think? Do you use a bullet journal?
