I have quite a few goals already going that I made at the start of the year. But it is always easier to create them than to actually complete them. Some things have take a backslide here and there so I was to make a post for the 2018 summer comment challenge anyway, I figured why not combine it.
2018 Summer Comment Challenge
The comment challenge is hosted by Lonna @ FLYLēF and Alicia @ A Kernel of Nonsense and runs June through August. It focuses on helping bloggers to connect with one another through creating pairs that visit each other for a set amount for a month long. You can read more about it here.
While I certainly haven’t needed the help to blog hop this year, I like the idea of having a partner for the month to focus on and getting to know someone new. I think I did this the first time it was done for one month but then I started work and didn’t have the time to commit.
This year however I hope to be able to participate all three months: June, July and August for at least 5 comments a month. I can’t wait to see who my partners will be.
Edit: Partners will be added here
One or Two Series a Month
While I have been making progress on my reading challenge (already completed) and making a decent dent in my Top 15 tbr for 2018 (six of 15), I have been slacking on my goal to complete or catch-up to certain series. Instead I’ve been starting quite a few new ones. So for the Summer I at least want to focus on one or two series per month. In some cases I only have to read one book so… If I can fit in more, I’ll fit in more but for now this is it. I also added in a few more series I still have to start but already own a few.
June – Copper Cat trilogy by Jen Williams (1 Book) / Death Arc by Terry Pratchett (1 Book) / Dracois Memoria by Anthony Ryan (2 books)
July – Wayfarers by Becky Chambers (2 Books) / The Summoner series by Taran Matharu (3 books)
August – Nicholas Flamel (3 Books + 2 Novella’s)
Less Review Copies This Summer
I have finally fallen on the train of requesting two many books to be able to read review copies AND give enough attention to my own tbr. So I want to make sure I don’t end up with as many as I had in May to read. While I was excited, I also felt pressured to finish them all too quickly so that made me feel a bit rushed with everything. My own fault though.
I’ll keep my review requests open until the end of June. However I will be extremely picky.
