Fantastic Audiobooks for You to Read!

There is a bit of a debate amongst readers about whether audiobooks actually count as reading. In my opinion, they absolutely do! You are listening to the book, yes, but you are still receiving and retaining the story or information just as you would with a physical book. I didn’t start getting into audiobooks until a few years ago, and now they comprise a large portion of my reading each year!

If you are new to audiobooks, or are just looking for new ones to listen to, then this list is a good place to start! These are some of my favorite audiobooks that I have ever read:

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.

Let’s get into it!

Monthly Wrap-Up: September and October 2020

Hello everyone! My life was kind of crazy the past two months, and I apologize for being gone for so long. Things have finally settled down for me a bit, so hopefully I will be updating the blog on a more regular basis now. I am going to do a combination wrap-up post for both September and October, especially since I only read three books in October.

I read a total of 8 books in September and 3 books in October. I will talk more about why my count was so low in October in my Getting Personal section below.

I’m going to try to do things slightly differently this year. I am going to keep y’all updated on how my various book challenges are going in each of my monthly wrap-ups.

Let’s get into it!

Mid-Year Book Freak Out Tag

color books on grey wooden backgroundI have seen a ton of Booktube channels doing the Mid-Year Book Freak Out Tag, and it made me want to give it a go!

I realize we are a bit past “mid-year” by now, but I was kind of on an unofficial hiatus when “mid-year” hit, so I am doing it now! This seemed like such a fun way to talk about the books I have read so far this year, especially since there were a few months where I didn’t post anything here.
