The Coffee Book Tag

It’s no surprise that I love a good tag! I have done plenty over the years of being a blogger. They’re always something I have a passion for. Unfortunately, it has been a little while since I have done one and if I’m honest, I have missed doing them. There’s not been one that has jumped out to me, until now of course! I found this tag over at The Wordy Habitat and it’s called Coffee Book Tag – two of my favourite things!

I’m definitely a coffee girl, I know my Instagram doesn’t show it at the moment, being in the lockdown and all but I used to spend quite a lot of my time at Starbucks. Also, there’s nothing better than grabbing a book and escaping from the world around you for a couple of hours. The Coffee Book Tag was really fun to answer; let me know what your answers would be down in the comments!

My Year in Books 2019

For the past 3 years, I have set myself a challenge on Goodreads, each year I have done pretty well I would say! I’m not one of those who set massive Goals, for me they always have to be realistic. As we’re into a new year, I thought now would be a good time to review my 2019 Goodreads Challenge. Once I’ve reflected on last year, I’ll be moving ahead to 2020 and setting this year Goodreads Challenge.

At the beginning of 2019, I set myself the Goal of reading 20 books. For some people, this could sound like a small Goal but after completing my 2018 Goodreads Challenge of reading 15 books, 20 books sounded a good Goal for the next year. Unfortunately, 2019 was not my year for books, I was only able to read 7 books, 8 less than the year before. There was just so much going on AND as you know, there were a lot of months where I did not blog.

I love Goodreads as it keeps you on track but also provides some great insights afterwards. That’s exactly what I’m going to go through with you today.

Monthly Goals // July 2019

Goodbye June, Hello July!

I hope you’ve had a lovely start to July. As it’s the beginning of a new month, it’s the perfect time to reflect on the Goals I set myself at the beginning of June. Then create new Goals for July, I’m really excited about the upcoming month. I already have loads planned! I don’t think I’m home for one single weekend, it’s going to be a long but fun month.

If you want to see what I got up to in June, I have shared my adventures in my Monthly Favourites // June 2019 here. It’s great to review and reflect each month, sometimes you even forget what you’ve done.

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