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 😂

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: 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.

Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Meant to Read in 2020 But Didn’t Get To

I decided that this year I would like to try my hand at participating in Top Ten Tuesday, a meme that was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

This week the topic is the books you meant to read in 2020, but you didn’t get to, for whatever reason. I have a ton of books that I fully intended to get to last year, but for one reason or another never did. Here are the ten that are sitting on my library cart right now (as I fully intend to try to get to them first this year!):

Mini-Reviews // First Half of January 2021

I always enjoy seeing a round-up of people’s mini reviews, as well as their bookish photos of each book. So, I present you with my mini-reviews from my Instagram for the first half of the month!

I have had such a great reading month so far! It is kind of crazy to me that I have already read 8 books this month! Also, I have had three 5 star reviews, which is also very out of the ordinary for me. Let’s hope the second half of the month is just as good!

Monthly Wrap-Up: July 2020

Wow, it has been a hot minute since I was last here! I’m sorry for disappearing for so long. Grad school has been way more consuming than I thought. It hasn’t affected my reading, surprisingly, but the thought of sitting down to craft blog posts was just a little too much for my already stressed and anxious self. I am winding down on the end of my second course, and I am finally feeling like I can come up for air a little bit. I’ll talk more about what’s been going on in our world later in the post, but I just wanted to say up top: I’ve missed all of you! I’ve been so busy! I hope not to go this long without blogging again! Continue reading “Monthly Wrap-Up: July 2020”

Monthly Wrap-Up: March 2020

Hello everyone! This month was a little bit slower for me, and I ended up with a total of 8 books.

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! Continue reading “Monthly Wrap-Up: March 2020”
