Well, we’ll see about this.

This is again, quite a late post to be talking about goals for 2019 since we are three months into it already. Yikes. And I don’t know how much of this is actually going to happen for me. But now there can then be an update on the blog at the end of this year to really determine how well I did on my goals.

These are just a few of the books I have been dying to read and for some reason, 2019, as I’ve decided, is going to be the year I read them. Here’s the list of them and hopefully by December I will have some great updates on this.

buffy and sabrina and inspiring generations

This is a bit of a random post, but I really had an urge to write this piece.  And I said I would post twice in a month, so here we are!! I’m excited to share this and I think that’s how I have to go about writing on the blog in the new year, you know, writing pieces that I’m excited about and what I feel inspired to write about. At some point, I’ll probably write a post about struggling with writing and my wishes for my future and all that, but I wanted to write a little fun piece about my favorite tv shows and how feminism and the supernatural play significant roles in the lives of these heroines and those who watch them.

As soon as I see a show with a strong female lead and a touch of the supernatural involved, I’m immediately invested. Buffy the Vampire Slayer has been a big part of my college life, and then there’s the new show The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina that’s quickly becoming important to me too, as I have been busy with my Netflixing because also, yes, I am still stuck in some sort of sadness. And Netflix binging helps. I think. Anyway, at first, I found Sabrina far more within the horror genre than the kind of silly scares of Buffy, and it is more scary I think, just because Buffy was so 90s and Sabrina is made in a time where graphics and everything can be that much more advanced and terrifying. But at the same time, there are elements that really remind me of Buffy within the show. Both are incredible in their own particular ways.

so it’s july now. And I know I am a little late in posting this review and also what’s to come in this next month.

As I kind of said in the last post, I’m not the best reader of all time. I love it, but sometimes it can be hard to get started. I’m trying to get in more of a routine so hopefully this month will have better results.

I only read two and a half of the four books I was going to read last month. It’s not great, but at least I read something! I finished Simon vs. the Homo Sapien’s Agenda and Secrets for the Mad. I got about half-way through Sense and Sensibility. For some reason, especially with older books, I have a harder time focusing on them–I really love the story of Austen’s book, but at the same time, it was a little tricky trying to get through all of it in this shorter month. I will finish it this month, as I will explain a bit later.

I’ve noticed a lot of different book blogs as well as book vlogs talk about their books “to be read” and I love reading and watching those kind of posts/uploads, so I’ve decided to make one myself. I think it will also hold me accountable for reading because I don’t know if I’m the only one who feels this way, but sometimes it just takes me so long to get into the habit of reading, though it is the thing I love the most, it can be really difficult sometimes.

But this, this will hold me accountable and I’m excited to share it! I’ll also make an update at the end of the month about which ones I’ve actually finished or not and like my favorites, whatever.

But!! I’m going to try and finish them all. I’m really trying to become a better reader and all that and read things I enjoy and am interested in. I need to give myself a little hobby, keep my mind occupied.

So, here is the list of all the books I will finish this month (hopefully!):
