August Goals + July Review

Today, I’m going to do my August Goals for our Monthly Goals Link-Up. You can find everyone participating here:

First, these were my July goals and whether or not I accomplished them:


  • Read 8 books. I only read 6 books, which you can find here.
  • Go outdoors more.  In the beginning of the month, I was rollerblading a lot more and went for walks. Near the end, I was working constantly so I didn’t really get a chance to.
  • Keep my room clean and organized. I actually managed to do this for the first three weeks of July. The last week, I was constantly driving back and forth from home and I haven’t really unpacked yet so it’s a little messy right now.
  • Write 15,000 words in my novel. I only got about 5,000 words in.

Internet-Related Goals:

  • Reach 500 followers on my bookstagram account. I was actually at 900 before the month ended! 
  • Post two videos a week on my YouTube channel.  I only post two videos this month due to a sudden craziness in my schedule.
  • Be more organized.  I did start planning out posts more and kept track of my followings every week.

I completed about half of my goals which I can live with. Hoping for a better August!


August Goals:


  • Work out 4 times a week. I have a 6K mud run coming up and I will admit I haven’t worked out in a month. I definitely need to start running and training immediately.
  • Get organized for the upcoming school year. My fall semester starts in two weeks and I need to start preparing.
  • Read 8 books. I am fairly confident I will actually reach 8 books this month!



  • Reach 2,000 followers on my bookstagram account. My account is growing so quickly I feel like I can make it 2K by the end of the month.
  • Post 3 videos this month. I definitely couldn’t find the time to do 2 a week so I’ll switch to 3 a month.
  • Participate in blogging groups and chats. I’ve participating in a couple twitter chats this past month and I definitely want to do more. I’m hoping to be more active in Facebook groups as well.


That’s all for this months goals! Thanks for stopping by. xx

    Omg! Reading 1 book a month is such a struggle for me I couldn’t imagine reading 6 or 8. My favorite way for getting organized for the semester is google calendar. It’s a life saver. Good luck with your August Goals.

    You’re a rockstar for knocking out your July goals! Can’t wait to see what you have in store for September. I know you did just as amazing on your August goals.

    A novel!!! That’s got to be exciting. Would love to know what it’s about? And 5000 words is a decent amount to have written so far.

    Here’s to you having an amazing last couple days of August and being a superstar through September!
