Hi all,

Welcome to our half way point of the year and wow what a year it has been so far! If you are a regular follower then you will know that I created a bucket list to complete this year because I am now officially 30! I had to revise it due to COVID-19 but I’m still making good progress. Shall we see what I crossed off this month?

  1. Buy a lottery ticket 
  2. Read 100 books So far I have read 51 books!
  3. Listen to an audio book 
  4. Sign up to a book subscription service 
  5. Complete the 500 piece jellybean puzzle that I started just before Christmas 
  6. Read the Philip Pullman ‘His Dark Materials’ Series
  7. Take part in the 20 Books of Summer Reading Challenge and read 20 books! (instead of the 10-15 I usually do) – The challenge has started and I’ve read 7 which means I am on track
  8. Take a yoga class 
  9. Own 500 books – My total so far is 388!
  10. Cross off all prompts on my Beat The Backlist Bingo Card! – So far I have crossed off 20 out of the 24 original prompts. Hopefully this will be done by the end of July
  11. See a psychic
  12. Run 5k – I’m about to start week 3! At this rate I’ll be running 5K by Christmas. I would really like to see an improvement in July. Time to get motivated.
  13. Be debt free
  14. Have £1000 in savings 
  15. Blog once a week – I am definitely keeping up with this one. Last month I posted 17 blogs!
  16. Go to see a show
  17. Keep my tax return up to date every month 
  18. Remain in the green zone for the Cheapskate Reading Challenge Whilst I deducted 10 points this month I am still sitting at 39 points!
  19. Master a Cheese and Spaghetti Souflee
  20. Read a book by an author that is new to me each month – This month I read books by 5 new authors.
  21. Watch Game of Thrones 
  22. Read all of the Harry Potter series – Five down, only two to go!
  23. Have my NetGalley Feedback ratio at 100% – Current NetGalley ratio is 88%. This has increased from 76% at the start of the year. The next three months are all about my ARC’s so that figure should creep into the 90’s soon!
  24. Watch more iconic films –  This month I’ve crossed off Gladiator.
  25. Grow strawberries 
  26. Sight see in London 
  27. Go on a train 
  28. Take part in a readathon 
  29. Go on a motorbike 
  30. Go to a sushi bar 

Total 19/30

Okay so nothing new crossed off this month however I know that nearly all of these are underway so I’m not too disappointed. Hopefully I can cross more off next month.

Stay safe everyone!

  1. I like your goals. I’ve done some these already. I’ve read the Harry Potter series, I went to a yoga class, ran a 5k, and saw a psychic. My favourite was seeing a psychic, I find they’re really insightful and life changing. I’ve been thinking about 30 goals I want to finish by the time I’m 30. I’m only 26, so I still have a bit of time to do things. Keep up the awesome bucket list ideas! ❤
