Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by That Arty Reader Girl. Each week, we are given a bookish topic to discuss. This week’s theme is Books to Read When Time is Short. In an ideal world, we readers would have all the time we want to read. However, in reality, we often find ourselves with little time to get to read our TBR. These books are ones to pick up when time is short but the desire to read is strong.

The first month of the year is over and it was a great month reading-wise. Each month, I do my best to get through as many books from my TBR as possible. One way to accomplish this is to set a monthly TBR and do my best to stick to it. In the January 2024 Reading Wrap-Up, I go over the books I read during the month and what I thought of them. It’s a great way to find new books to read. The post may contain affiliate links. This means that should you make a purchase after following one of these links, I mayRead More →

Creating a monthly TBR is always a fun activity. It gives me a chance to pick out as many books I think I can read from my TBR. Inevitably, I usually pick out more books than I think I can read in a single month but I’d rather have too many choices than too few. On top of the books listed, I also plan to get to the books I didn’t have time to read from my January 2024 TBR. My February 2024 TBR is a good mix of genres, new books, and a few rereads thrown in for fun. February 2024 TBR Physical BooksRead More →

With the month coming to an end, it’s time to share my January 2024 book haul showing the books I acquired during the month. Though I am trying hard to limit the number of books I buy, I did pick up a few new books in January. These books made it onto my TBR this month and will hopefully not have to wait too long to be read – though I did read one of them in January. The post may contain affiliate links.

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by That Arty Reader Girl. Each week, we are given a bookish topic to discuss. This week’s theme is Books I Meant to Read in 2023 but Didn’t Get To.

January is the start of a new year and gives us the opportunity to start fresh or continue what we built in the previous year.
