Blogger Book Nook #11 // Fantasy

Here we are again, another month, another Reading Challenge from the Blogger Book Nook! I love this time of the month as it’s exciting to take part and most of the time, introduce yourself to a new genre or even book. I’m thankful for the Reading Challenge being different each month to find something new each month.

This month’s Reading Challenge is Fantasy!

We receive our monthly Reading Challenge from either Abbey or Tabitha, two of the kindest girls, on the Facebook page. Here we have some great conversations and are able to talk books! This is also the perfect opportunity to get to know new bloggers, ones that have a similar interest, books and reading.

Right, let’s get on with July’s Reading Challenge.

Monthly Goals // June 2018

Can you believe that it’s already the first week of June? Time seems to be going very quickly at the moment, I even keep forgetting what day it is! I think that’s what happens when you keep yourself busy, I don’t know about you but I love keeping myself busy and during the Summer you’re busy every single weekend. Another thing that comes with a new month is setting yourself some new Goals or you can even continue your old ones if you’ve yet to achieve them!

Today I will be reflecting on the Goals I set myself for May and creating some new ones for June. I always try to set Goals that reflect on what I plan to do during the month as well as little Goals to achieve bigger Goals. Some things you want to achieve in life don’t happen overnight! May has definitely been a great month and things are starting to pick up, there’s been a range of things I have loved over the course of the month. You can learn about all of those here.

Blogger Book Nook #9 // Time Machine

I swear 2018 is going really quick, like can you believe it’s already May. This month is going to be a busy and hopefully fun one, I’m going to be creating some great memories this month with Yasmine. A new month means there’s a new Reading Challenge created by the Blogger Book Nook. This month’s Reading Challenge is a little different and something special.

May is the birthday month for both Tabitha and Abbey, Happy Birthday to the both of you! Meaning they wanted to pick their favourite genre Historical Fiction. Hop in your time machine and pick a read that’s set in the past – whether it’s as early as the 90’s or if you go back thousands of years, the choice is yours! I’m excited to indulge in a book of this genre, as it’s definitely an interesting genre.

We receive our monthly Reading Challenge from either Abbey or Tabitha, two of the kindest girls, on the Facebook page. Here we have some great conversations and are able to talk books! This is also the perfect opportunity to get to know new bloggers, ones that have a similar interest, books and reading.

Book Review // The Development

May is definitely turning into a good month! I’m excited to be sharing with you today my thoughts on The Development by Jackie Kabler. I’m trying my hardest to read at least one book each month, to reach my Goodreads Reading Challenge of fifteen books in 2018. This month is very strong for this as I’m participating in three different Blog Book Tour. First, I read The Planetsider, then I read SHINE, I planned these well seeing as it’s Get Caught Reading Month.

This blog book tour is hosted by Jenny Marston, over at Neverland Blog Tours, I have found some new loves since participating in book tours. Today is no different as I am the first stop on The Development Blog Tour hosted by Jenny, I am also sharing today with Oh Hay! Blogs and Everywhere & Nowhere so please check out their blogs to read what they thought.

Book Review // SHINE

How are you all enjoying Get Caught Reading Month so far? If you missed my post last week, you won’t know anything about what I just asked you! Get Caught Reading Month is a nationwide campaign to promote the fun of reading books for all ages. I won’t go into too much detail here, as I spoke quite a lot about it within the post.

Today, I am sharing my thoughts on SHINE thanks to participating in the Book Blog Tour hosted by The Book Publicist, I am the fifth stop on the Blog Tour. Now before I get into my review, I just wanted to speak a little about SHINE this is definitely a book that is a little different from the normal books I read. I love anything Supernatural, Thriller and even Mystery but this is completely opposite at non-fiction.

Monthly Goals // May 2018

With a new month here, it means it’s time to set some new Goals for the upcoming month. I love writing down my Goals each month as it really helps me to stay on target for my 2018 Personal and Blogging Goals. I’ve had a lovely April, you can find out what I’ve been loving here with my April Favourites. Here, I share with you what I’ve been up to as well as products I’ve been loving.

For today’s post though, it’s all about my Monthly Goals! I’ve had a really strong month, I have achieved a lot of different things, but are they the same as what I set out to achieve at the beginning of April. It’s good to also reflect on your previous Goals, this helps to see if you’ve been on target throughout the month and gives you an indication of where you need to go for the next month.

Before I set myself some new Goals for May, let’s reflect on my April Goals!

May 2018 – Get Caught Reading Month

It only feels like yesterday that it was January, now we’re starting May. Spring is definitely here and hopefully, it will stick around for a little while. I’m really enjoying sharing with you different National Day/Month, you get to learn something new and exciting. May marks Get Caught Reading Month, a nationwide campaign to promote the fun of reading books for all ages.

The campaign was launched in 1999 by the Association of American Publishers and now managed by Every Child a Reader with support from the Lois Lenski Covey Foundation. To celebrate Get Caught Reading Month is really easy you just need to dig your nose into a book and forget about the concerns of other peoples’ opinions. Get Caught Reading Month is a great chance to meet other bibliophiles as well!
