Knowing that June is going to be hectic at best, I am making a smaller TBR for the month. Most of the books I am focusing on are continuations of series I am reading, and ironically enough there are a lot of fourth volumes this month. I also slipped in one book I started in May but didn’t get a chance to finish. While my June 2024 TBR is small, I am excited to get to these books and see what each story has in store for me. Should I find extra time to read, I will pick whatever book from my main TBR strikesRead More →

April has come and gone and it was a spectacular reading month. I came into the month expecting to read 10 books from my TBR and managed nearly double that. Though a couple of DNFs also occurred, I am truly surprised by how many books I got through and enjoyed nearly all of them.

For my May 2024 TBR, I am putting a heavy focus on my neglected ebooks. I have made a lot of progress whittling down my physical TBR, but have not done the same for my ebooks. This is the month that all changes. I am going with a mix of older and newer ebooks. On top of this, I should be getting a few audiobooks through the library to enjoy. As always, my monthly TBR is larger than can likely tackle, but I like to keep my options open and some months I read more than others. The post may contain affiliate links. This meansRead More →

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 the Unread Books on My Shelves I Want to Read Soon. As readers, we tend to collect books faster than we read them. I decided to divide this list between the 4 physical books and 5 ebooks that have been waiting to be read the longest. While I hope to read these soon, I will admit, that “soon” is a relative term and the goal is to simply read them at some point. I truly hope thatRead More →
