Monthly Wrap-Up: June 2021

This month I read a total of 11 books! I have been consistently reading around 11 or 12 books a month the past couple of months, and I think this is a pretty respectable number. It is nowhere near what I was reading at the beginning of the year, but I knew I wouldn’t be able to keep up that crazy pace!  

While I am aiming for 150 books this year, I am also aiming to diversify my reading. I am trying to break into genres I don’t typically gravitate toward. I am hoping to read more non-fiction and classics. And, as always, I am taking part in several reading challenges.

Let’s get into it!

Monthly Wrap-Up: April 2021

This month I read a total of 12 books! I was a bit distracted by video games this month, so my number isn’t as high as my previous months. It is still a lot though, so I am satisfied 🙂

Monthly Wrap-Up: March 2021

This month I read a total of 18 books! I honestly didn’t think I would ever surpass last month’s total, but I guess I proved myself wrong haha (To be fair, a couple of these books were less than 50 pages…but I think they still count!)

Monthly Wrap-Up: February 2021

This month I read a total of 16 books! I have been on fire these past two months, and I’m hoping this will continue to be the trend. I’m a little worried that I’m going to burn myself out, but I guess that’s future me’s problem 😂

Monthly Wrap-Up: January 2021

Hello everyone! It’s the beginning of a new year, and so I have new goals! This month, I have read 15 books!! That is crazy, even for me, but it is the pace I actually intend to keep up. I have set myself with a goal of reading 150 books this year. I have met and exceeded my goal of 100 for a few years now, so I thought aiming for 150 would be an actual challenge for me.

While I am aiming for 150, I am also aiming to diversify my reading. I am trying to break into genres I don’t typically gravitate toward. I am hoping to read more non-fiction and classics. And, as always, I am taking part in several reading challenges.

Yearly Wrap-Up: 2020

I think we can all say that 2020 was a very strange and eventful year, even with us quarantining for a vast majority of it. I started grad school for library science this year, though I actually withdrew from my grad school program a few months later (because it was focusing on school librarianship, and I want to pursue public librarianship). I recently started a job as a library page at a branch of our local public library, and I am really enjoying it! We also moved unexpectedly this year! We moved back to Texas, which is where I grew up, so that we could be closer to my family. My daughter started in-person pre-school this year. It has been a hard year for everyone, but it has still had some great moments for me! And, I read WAY more books than I anticipated!!
