siennaselfieWhoa, it’s June already?! The last 31 days have just flown away and it’s getting seriously cold down here in Argentina. I really don’t like those cold winter months, but I do seem to get a lot of reading done as it gets colder… Although my cat Sienna is never far away when I try to read, demanding attention. WP_005685❤ This means I have actually surpassed my original Goodreads goals, yay! 😀 The page count wasn’t as high as last month though… Which is probably because I’ve started working on my own knitted multicolor bedspread and I’ve been neglecting my reading for the last two weeks. I’ll need about 200 squares to finish it, so I will be busy for quite some time haha. But just look at all those pretty colors! ❤

  • Number of books read in May: 18
  • Total number of books read this year: 63
  • Total number of pages read in May: 5.456
  • Total number of pages read this year: 22.810

May sure wasn’t a bad month, and I was able to read no less than 18 books. I guess the Bout Of Books read-a-thon was a big help as well… I wasn’t as lucky as last month though with my reading choices as you can see below. I ended up rating quite a few books with 3 stars or less, and only three of them were 4,5 or 5 stars… Hopefully next month will be better! Four reviews are still pending and will be uploaded within the next week or so.

bookishbingoprogressLike I said before, this year I’m doing things slightly different and I’m including an update for the different challenges I’m participating in as well. That way I won’t be having a dozen update posts wandering around. 😉  In May I was able to finish both the Goodreads challenge and the Reading Through The Centuries challenge! 😀 I’ve actually reset the Goodreads challenge to 90 books the other day since it’s still so early in the year… I’ve made progress with both Bookish Bingo challenges as well, so things are looking good.  I’ve included a picture of my progress in both Bookish Bingo challenges as well; to the left the Bookish Bingo 2015 challenge and below the Bookish Bingo Ready For Spring challenge. Only four titles missing for a full bingo on the second one, yay! 😀

As always, I’ve managed to neglect the other reading and blogging goals for yet another month… I thought the Review-A-Thon I started last month would reduce the number of unfinished reviews, but I have been neglecting them anyway. Oops! I guess procrastination is still my middle name… I’ve decided to change by TBR pile goal to below 150 books instead, although it’s still a very unlikely goal haha. Even with the 18 books I’ve read last month I was able to increase the total amount of unread books on my shelf by eight, oops again! I guess I will have to start working on these goals during June…


  • Read at least 5 classics
  • Finish rereading the Harry Potter series 
  • Complete at least 5 series: 3/5 (The Infernal Devices Trilogy/ Divergent Trilogy/The Grisha Trilogy)
