I have been setting myself 10 ‘Aims’ to do each month, just something to keep me motivated and also persuade me to get done things that need doing but keep getting put off. Some are fun and some are practical (and some are challenging – an aim this month is to run 4km in one session at the gym. 3km last month nearly did me in!) One for August is to read 3 books – doesn’t sound much considering last year I was getting through between 5 and 7 a month but this year I have been taking it easer and reading less.
I want this month to involve at least three, potentially more.
For definite I want to read:
The Madness Underneath (Shades of London #2) by Maureen Johnson – I have this on loan from the library and started it yesterday so this one is a definite read!
Dreams of Gods and Monsters (Daughter of Smoke and Bone #3) by Laini Taylor – I cannot resist any longer. It has been sat by my bed since the day it arrived in the post on pre-order. I NEED to read it!
Season of Secrets by Sally Nichols – Liberty got me a signed copy of this for my birthday back in June, I think it is time I picked it up!
I have also started listening to the audiobook of Neil Gaiman’s American Gods so that may well get finished during the course of the month too.
