Half way through my goal! I might increase it, but I go through reading phases, so I think I'll wait to see if I reach it early. I rated almost all of these books with four stars which I find delightful since March is all about St. Patrick's day for me. That means four leaf … Continue reading March Wrap Up: Half Way Through My Reading Goal
This month was more about class books than books I read for pleasure. I have a lot more reading this semester than I did last semester, so I can't squeeze in as many books I want to read. I have started listening to more audiobooks while I walk to work which is nice. I'll also … Continue reading February Wrap Up
From October to the end of December I work on reading strictly CYBILS books and books for class. So, once the first round of judging ended, I went hard for all the books I'd been putting on my TBR during those months. January was a great month of reading and I enjoyed all the books … Continue reading January Monthly Wrap Up
Hey Everyone! I've been super busy reading and helping choose the finalists for the young adult fiction and young adult speculative fiction categories for the CYBILS awards. (Which you can see here and here!). I've also been taking some time to be with family and slowing down my reading since I was sprinting at the … Continue reading December Monthly Wrap Up
That's right! I've read over 75 books this year and am still going! I'd like to thank a year of COVID and being a CYBILS panelist for this achievement. Henna Wars By Adiba Jaigirdar This was an interesting romantic-coming-of-age-addressing-racism book. It also took place in Ireland I found that fact fun and I thought I'd … Continue reading November Wrap Up: finished my reading goal!
Overall this month was full of surprises as all these books were so amazing! I highly recommend all of them! Also I got to read some really good "spooky" or strange reads! Winterwood By Shea Ernshaw I thought this was a beautifully written witchy fairytale perfect for Halloween or winter. I highly recommend reading it … Continue reading October Wrap Up: the month of books blowing past my expectations
Woah. September was a way more productive reading month than I had thought it would be. Of course, four of these books I read for school. It always helps to have mandatory reading to increase your monthly reading numbers. BUT I'm really excited to get to talk about these books because I haven't written posts … Continue reading September Wrap Up
I am so happy to announce that I will be participating in Cybils again this year as a round 1 panelist for young adult fiction! I am so excited for the opportunity to read so many of the amazing books that were published in the past year. I got to be a panelist last year … Continue reading CYBILS YA PANELIST!
I don't write about books I don't finish or didn't enjoy. I prefer to put more positive reviews and discussions of books out into the world because I want people to read books and I want to encourage authors since writing is freaking hard. However, I do think it's interesting to know what books people … Continue reading DNF and books that weren’t for me #2
What was your favorite book you read this month? Let me know in the comments and I'll tell you mine! I've never done one of these, but I thought it would be a fun way to post more and allow people to get a more wholistic view of what I read during a month. I … Continue reading August Wrap Up
