The end of the year is almost upon us and I am not ready for it in any shape or form. Things got super intense at uni this month as I had to submit my PhD research proposal to my department for early feedback before the funding deadline in January, so I’ve been working flat out on my proposal all month meaning that both my reading and blog got horribly neglected. I had been planning for November & December to be my catch up months, and the thought of having to squeeze all of the catch up into just December now is making me a bit nervous haha!
I beat my second reading challenge goal of the year! Round 1 saw me smash my goal of 50 books, and now I’ve beaten my stretch goal too!

I haven’t done a bingo event for what seems like forever so I couldn’t resist the lure of Foxes and Fairytale’s #mythothon for November, especially given my love for Greek mythology! As the end of the year is hurtling towards us at rapid speed the #mythothon bingo card also gives me the perfect opportunity to work out which books have been sadly sidelined this year and try to finish them before the end of the year. Which leads me onto the other thing happening this month, Remember November, a challenge to help you meet those pesky 2018 goals we set at the beginning of the year! Reading more owned books was one of my main goals for the year, so the mythothon and Remember November tie in perfectly for me.

I know that I say this at the end of every single month but holy hell this month went so fast and it’s almost the end of the year?! How though?!

Holy crap only 2 more books to go!

Hello Panda friends!
October is set to be a super busy month for me. If you saw my most recent installment of The Sunday Post you will have read that I will now be juggling postgraduate study with my blogging, reading and reviewing! Whilst I really enjoyed my time away from the restrictions of TBR’s, I know that I will need to be a lot more organized from now on if I’m going to be able to balance my academic and personal reading lists so I’m bringing back my monthly TBR posts, at least for the time being.

As usual, this month has gone by in a complete flash. As I’ve been so busy its gone by quicker than usual so I haven’t been able to get as much blogging or reading done as usual. But I did relaunch this blog with an entirely new look so I think that’s a pretty good excuse, right? I’m also so close to meeting my Goodreads reading challenge, which is great because my time to read non-academic books is about to take a hit as of next month!
