Contemporary-a-thon TBR, Round 5

Contemporary fiction is a genre that I don’t pick up often because I tend to choose a lot of science fiction, fantasy, or historical fiction when I’m looking for my next read. I found out this morning that today is the start of Round 5 of the Contemporary-a-Thon, so I figured it would be a […]

Down the TBR Hole – #2

When I did the first iteration of this challenge I got rid of 2 out of ten books on my TBR. Currently, my TBR on Goodreads has 3,851 books on it. Which, distressingly, is even more than I had on my TBR at the end of part one of this challenge. In case you didn’t […]

June Plans & TBR

More than likely, June is going to be a very busy month for me. There’s a chance I’m moving at the end of the month (we are possibly extending our lease, but we haven’t decided yet). If we do end up moving, I’m fairly certain that I won’t be getting much reading done. However, if […]

Down the TBR Hole (Again) – #1

This challenge is something that I did a couple of times when I first started this blog. The idea behind it is to reduce the number of books on your TBR list. As far as I can tell, this challenge was created by the writer at the literary blog, Lost in a Story, but it […]

May 2019 Plans & TBR

I can’t believe it’s May already. 2019 is moving by at an extraordinary pace. This month, I want to focus on reading books I already own. I have a tendency to max out my library card constantly, which means I’m practically always reading a borrowed book while I have hundreds of books that sat unread […]

April TBR & Plans

I have big reading plans for April. I want to finish thirty books this month, several of which are graphic novels or poetry collections that I want to get to. For funsies, I set myself a ridiculously high Goodreads yearly goal of 225 books, and I fully intend to reach it. I got a bit […]

Re-Read-A-Thon 2019

I first heard about this readathon through Elliot Brooks’ Youtube channel, and since I’ve been wanting to reread some old favorites, decided I am going to participate. (As a side note, if you aren’t already subscribed to Elliot Brooks’ youtube channel, I recommend you check it out. She’s one of the best booktubers, in my opinion, […]

October TBR

It’s finally October! I love this month so much. Pumpkin everything, the leaves changing color, spooky stuff everywhere, cooler weather… there’s just so much to love. The fall is a time when I always feel rejuvenated and at my happiest. Since it’s the first day of the month, that means it’s time to put together […]

Down the TBR Hole #1

My TBR list is seriously out of control. Every time I see or hear of a new book that sounds even remotely interesting to me, I immediately add it to my Want To Read list on Goodreads. It can be intimidating when it comes time to choose a new book because the list is so […]
