Bookish Resolutions Challenge: June Recap

Posted June 30, 2015 by Lola in Challenges / 10 Comments

The 2015 Bookish Resolutions Challenge hosted by A Reader Lives A Thousand Lives and Because Reading is Better Than Real Life.

Every month on the 30th I will be doing my recap of that month. You can check out my goal post here

June Recap

  • Accept no more than 1 book with a deadlines each month. I failed this one in february already.
  • Read at least 3 (cozy) mysteries. No progress on this, still at zero cozy mysteries read. I did read two romantic suspense books though, so we’re going in the right direction.
  • Read at least 3 historical romances. Made it! Links to the books I read for this challenge are below:
    • The Mine by John Heldt. It’s actually a bit of a crossover book with time travel and historical romance elements, but I thought the historical romance elements where prominent enough to count it as historical romance.
    • In for a Penny by Rose Lerner, which was a lot of fun.
    • Palace Secrets by Ravyn Rayne – review will be posted later this month.


  • Read at least 20 review books this year. Last month I decided I am going to try and reach the 40 review books. At the moment I have read 40 review books! So I easily reached double of my goal already! While I am reading a lot of review books I still accepting new ones as well, so I am still not really making a dent in the pile.
  • Organize at least 30 tours with Lola’s Blog Tours. I organized 24 tours so far. I am pretty sure I am going to reach this goal, which makes me happy 🙂

How are you doing with your (bookish) resolutions so far?

    • I really need to make some progress on the mysteries goal, but beside that it’s going well. And the tours goal is the one I am probably happiest about how well it’s going!

    • Thanks! I think it’s because I made a mistake a few times by setting my goals too high and nowadays I know how to set my goals reasonable, so I can reach them and have a bit of a challenge, but not stress too much. I hadn’t expected I would read so many review books, but then I almost made my goodreads goal and I started reading on my ipad as well this year and that really helped get mroe books read and mostly review books.
      And I am so happy I am doing well with my tour business. I organized 22 tours last year, so reaching that 30 goal would be really nice and proof how much my business is growing 🙂

  1. Wow, and we’re still pretty early in the year! You’ll totally surpass 30 I bet:D You can do it!

    I think reading on any device definitely makes reviewing books easier! You can take em where ever and they always seem shorter than when reading a paperback.:D

    • I hope I can surpass the 30 tours 🙂

      With the ipad comment I meant I switched from only reading one book at a time to now reading two books. I used to play games on my ipad during breakfast and now I read on my ipad, which makes me read about a book each week more, which is nice.
