Hey everyone! Welcome back and if you’re new, I’m Amanda from A Court of Books and Love.
Today I have a few things I want to talk about that’s going to be changing for a while and let you guys know what I want to get done this coming week. So let’s just get into it!
First, let’s chat.
So if you haven’t noticed, I’ve been very iffy about my posting lately. I haven’t been posting as often and I have been missing days. This is the 4th week of me taking two courses with my school. The way my schooling works is that I take one or two classes (part time is one and full time is 2) for 8 weeks then move on to the next one or two. This is my second term and I decided to give two classes a shot. But that has been a lot more work than anticipated. So I haven’t been able to keep up with posting.
I tried filming and writing all of the posts ahead of time then editing as many as I could at a time. I ended up not doing the last two I filmed and there were a couple I couldn’t film/write until closer to the date. Because of this and the fact that I work retail and, well, Black Friday, I have been really busy at work. I haven’t found a way to balance everything.
So I’m making a change. It’s not one that I really want to do right now, but I’m setting my priorities straight and getting a hang on what I am capable of doing. So I’m having to take BookTube out of my schedule. I’m not going to be posting any videos for a while. That being said, I’m going to try to increase my posting here, but we will see how well that goes over. I’m going to try to write as many posts ahead of time as I can, but continue to do weekly ones so that I can continue to work on this without losing focus.
My main focus has been and always will be Bookstagram, though. I’m mainly using this for sharing books I love with other people. I’m going to be focusing on reviewing books and sharing other such things. I’m possibly going to add in weekly show reviews. I watch Flash every week with my brother so I may do joint reviews for that.
I’ve talked to him a few times about this but I’m going to discuss it with him again. He may be hopping on board my crew for this blog. So he may have a certain day of the week where he’ll talk about whatever he feels like talking about. We need to flesh out some details.
I would love for you guys to share some posts you would like to see from me in December. They can be anything, book related or not.
But that’s about it. Focus is Bookstagram, I’ll try posting here more often, and BookTube is cancelled for now.
Now let’s talk about my weekly goals!
Let’s start with the boring one. School.
I have the 5th module for each class that I will be working on this week.
For my Literature class, that consists of readings, a discussion, and a quiz.
For History, that’s a quiz, a discussion, and a worksheet.
So not too too bad. Pretty much normal workload for me. This will be my main focus this week despite the fact Readathin is going on and Minimoji.
So, speaking of those two, let’s discuss what I plan on reading!
My goal is to start and finish reading When Dimple Met Rishi, finish reading Doctor Who Twelve Doctors of Christmas, and start and finish Clockwork Angel. So wish me luck with that. I’m not going to talk about the rest of the readings I plan on doing because those have to do with my December TBR which won’t be up until Tuesday (I believe).
I need to still take this week’s photo, but that’s perfectly okay. I will be doing that today. I’m working on the captions right now and look forward to photos featuring City of Bones and Clockwork Angel, some book mail and beautiful covers, some more Doctor Who, some tea, and my monthly wrap up!
That’s about it for this week. I will hopefully have a good wrap up for not only Readathin but also this week in general. I would like to get back into these weekly wrap ups and goals. I will be trying to set them up a bit differently (at least wrap up wise). But I think you all will still enjoy them.
Make sure to let me know what you want to see me posting in December.
Thanks so much for reading! I will see you guys in the next post!
Happy Reading! Bye!
