2020 is one of those years that you aren’t too fussed to see whizzing past, what with the pandemic keeping us inside.
But I’m still OK to say: how the hell is it nearly August, right?
Me and my husband decided enough was enough last week and downloaded an organisation app. Coordinating together, we’ve been planning our weeks and meals and absolutely destroying our combined to-do list. It’s incredible what structure can do to productivity.
Before this, I would organise my day personally either the night before or the morning of. Just in case any unexpected things cropped up. But I still ended up being scattered and some things wouldn’t get done. When push came to shove and writing deadlines needed to be met, it was my reading time that took the hit.
Now, me and my husband are accountable to each other for what we do and don’t get done every day. Long story short, words are being written and books are being read, on schedule.
All this organisation has meant I’ve sped through the Tarot Witches series and am now getting stuck in to the final book in the series. The series plot has really accelerated and the world is not the place it was in the first three books. The stakes are up there!
I won’t lie though, I have been eyeing my new paperbacks and hardback book that are waiting patiently on the bookshelf. Having a physical book to read is super exciting!
But with our new organisational system in place, I’m hoping to start reading more than one book at a time. Having to read one book a week to keep up with the review feature has meant that I lean towards shorter books. I know I’m missing out on longer books, so I’m considering reading longer books on a more casual basis alongside the shorter books I usually choose.
As ever, I am open to any and all urban fantasy and paranormal romance recommendations. Generally, if someone is recommending a book, it’s made a huge impression on them and those are the kind of books I want to read. The ones that have you thinking about them forever afterwards. They’re not always rare but you do have to wait for them to come along sometimes.
So if you have a UF/PNR book you’re dying to recommend, let me know! I’ll have a look and see if I can’t fit it onto my TBR pile.
Thanks for reading!
