Where the heck did June go? I can’t believe it. My friend gets married tomorrow and it’s snuck up so suddenly. It feels like only yesterday that we were madly trying to decide on a bridesmaid dress and now we’re a day away from the actual wedding. That’s also my excuse for not getting much reading done this month. I’ve had stuff to do. Still, I think I’ve done okay. I barely touched my Pride TBR but that’s hardly new.

May was a bit of a non-month really. Work has been super busy compared to last year for obvious reasons. Then I’ve had a load of personal commitments to fit in. All meaning that I’ve not had as much time for reading. This has been my worst month for a while but I’m choosing not to focus on that. Instead I’m celebrating the fact that I’ve finished some books I’ve had on my list for a while.

Bookish Post – 2021 Reading Resolutions

books

I wasn’t going to bother setting any resolutions this year, reading or otherwise. I think it tends to put too much pressure on and you end up feeling worse if you don’t do as well as expected. I’ve tried doing the normal ones but it never last more than a couple of weeks. So, I just tend to tell myself that I’ll just try and be happier, kinder and healthier. That’s the kind of goal I can work with. I also don’t even really set reading ones. I’ve only been setting myself a yearly reading goal since 2018. Again, I just don’t like the added pressure. I always worried that I would end up reading books simply to cross another number off. However, I found that it has helped me read more, so it’s a tradition that I’ve kept up. Even though I tend to keep my target fairly modest.
