My *realistic* Goodreads goals

Seeing as we are almost done with the first month of 2017 I thought it was fitting for me to set my Goodreads goals, And I’m glad I did it because a lot changed from 2016 to this year. Some of the things I plan to do this year is and that I’ve done is to set realistic goals, things that I just know I can accomplish and then once accomplished push a bit further.

 Into these goals will go the amount of books I will hopefully read since Last year I read a whooping total of 7 BOOKS! yay (not really) and like mentioned on my friday post () I’m done forcing myself to read more that I’m willing and I’m putting pleasure over quantity.
So I’ve divided my goals in a few parts, bear with me as I try to explain them to myself:

  • Amount: My goal is to read 25 books this year, small goal that if accomplished will be very exciting and if exceed thrilling. This year will hold a lot of changes in my life , grad school and a new state are probably going to put a dent on anything larger than that so that’s my goal on the reading department.
  • Money; I also set a budged for book , and that my friends is a first. I wont spend more that 20-30 dollars a month (If that) on books. I’ve made the bad habit of over spending on books and I realized at the beginning of this year that my room holds more unread books than read and I have to deal with it somehow. and the only way of dealign with it is by reading them right? haha oh logic does great things to my plans when its 3 am and I’m reorganizing my room.
  • Variarity: While doing that deed reorganization i realized that mainly I’ve been reading away too much contemporary and so i decided that branching out are a most. So soon ill be making a list of books from different genres that i just have to read AND RE-READ (I’m looking at you Withering heights!)
  • Writing : Although not a “reading” goal, ill just add it here for accountability. Since I’ll be moving and I won’ t know ANYONE there I figure I will have a time to spare, I will take u writing once more and hopefully put this thoughts into paper.

2017 will be a great year in all aspects of my life (Fingers crossed) and I can’t wait to set this goals on motion. What are your reading goals? Or any goals you will try to reach this year?

GoodReads: WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

I have a feeling this is one of those book that people either really enjoy or dislike immediately.  I believe I fall into the enjoying category for sure, I have to say the reason why is because it has been a while since a book caught me completely by surprise. And when I say that i’m not exaggerating, I mena it, since page one and the introduction I was wondering about the next scheme or the next hilarious piece of dialog and every time Jana Aston delivered.

The story follows Everly (Beverly is her real name) in her quest to make the love of her life realize that she is the perfect woman for him. she has it all figure out and her plans are foolproof, for the most part. She usually drags along her best friend Chloe and everything is met with a great defiance. But things take a weird turn when she meets the one person who is not even shocked by her but encourages her instead. Making her question if her true purpose is as she imagined. It goes long the lines of twisting up her “happily ever after” and punch you in the face with something different.

Any man worthy of you would work for it, Everly. Not sit by passively while you did all”

The fact that Everly was such a dinamite was the thing that kept the whole thing interesting and also the reason some people might not like this book. She is loud, can be obnoxious, self centered (Some times) nosey, delusional, bossy and pretty much lives on dream land. There is not a once of sense going through her head. But that recklessness was what made it super refreshing. She didn’t cry over things when they didn’t happen, she moved on and became the person she wanted to be.she had a plan but that didn’t stop her from having the best life she could have. she socialized  she flirted and she was so confident of herself that it was just the cherrie on top. and she took things she wanted while also working her ass off. and the fact that they place her with that male character took it over the edge.

Sparks do not fly. Chills do not run through my body. I do not suddenly recognize this man as my soulmate based on a handshake. Such bullshit. His hand is nice though. Firm, large. His thumb caresses the back of my hand and fine, that touch alone is enough to make me recognize that he’s probably good in bed. But that’s it.”

This is a fun read but I have to warn you that this book is not one  of those books where there will be tears from how much the story changed you. But it’s a book that makes you see that in life we have to take the opportunities that present to us and forget about the ideal life we want, we just have to enjoy what we have. I felt like I was on a sugar and Redbull high throughout this whole story and i thank Everly for it. and for those super sexy intense scenes that oh my lord (Where’s the fan!)

Story short, read it if you like hype and delusional characters who will make you laugh and see life in a deferent light.
