So, I was doing these weekly wrap-ups at the beginning of the year but I started to fall off some time last month. I think I’ll try revisiting these, let me know your thoughts in the comments.
I was on Spring Break this week, which is one of the main reasons I got so much done. I posted nearly every day, on Friday I posted twice which is definitely uncommon for me.
So, let’s see this week’s new additions, links are provided below.
February is the shortest month of the year and I really felt that. This month completely flew by. My Two for Tuesday and Grownish Recaps + Discussions got a lot of love this month. Thank you for the support and comments, I love seeing what you have to say.
Now, let’s see how I did on my goals.
Happy Women’s History month everyone! I think I’m going to making this month’s prompts themed around that.
Week 1: Two books with a strong female lead
These books can feature superheroes, activists, or just a woman who knows what she’s doing.
Week 2: Two books written by women of color
One of the main reasons I started this blog was to talk about diverse literature and it’s just grown from there. Let’s shine the spotlight on some women of color!
Week 3: Two quotes by inspirational women
It’s up to you whether you want these quotes to be from books or not. Let’s get inspirational!
Week 4: Your two favorite unsung female heroes
I want to close out the month on a positive note, bringing light to the unsung heroes. They can be a little known women who made a big change, or someone closer to home. It’s all up to you!
Are you interested in joining Two for Tuesday? Just let me know in the comments!
You may have noticed that I didn’t post a recap and discussion last week. I could tell you excuses involving my exams or work or balancing school and a social life, but truth be told, I just wasn’t feeling episode nine.
If you’ve read my previous recaps, you already know I’m not a big fan of Zoey and Luca’s relationship. All these issues they’re going through just seem to further prove my point that they shouldn’t be together in the first place. I hope they break up before season three because I can not take any more of this foolishness.
As you may know, I made a Goals of 2019 post earlier this year. I had two blogging goals and two reading goals. I’m going to try breaking down these goals by month to help keep me on track.
Reading Goal: Finish 2 Books
So last month, I read The Poet X and Dear Martin. I finished them both before school started and I loved them. Since school has started up again, I haven’t had as much time to focus on a single book. I keep starting one and then stopping, then picking up a completely different book.
All this to say, I’m hoping to finish at least two books this month.
The main reason I’ve been able to keep posting while in school is because of the amazingness that is the scheduling tool. I’ve had at least six posts scheduled at any given time but lately, I’ve been too busy to create posts. I’m hoping to keep my page fresh with new posts this month.
I also want to keep up with the Two for Tuesday tag. Make sure to join if you’re interested.
Bookstagram Goal: Post 3X a Week
I’ve been slacking with my bookstagram for the past week or so. Truth be told, I need to take more pictures. I’m probably going to have another book photo shoot pretty soon. Make sure to follow my page on the sidebar.
Personal Goal: Keep Track of my Planner
I need to work on getting my life reorganized. I currently have four classes, two part-time jobs, and three organizations I’m part of at my University. I definitely need to make a few changes and get my life together.
What are your goals for February?
How has this first week been for you?
