With the arrival of January, it’s time to take a moment and look back at the books I read in December. This month was filled with holiday preparation, the first few heavy snowfalls of winter, and that overwhelming desire for the year to be over. The goal I had set for myself was to read 5 books during the month, something I can usually easily do. However, this month I found myself either not feeling like reading or simply not setting aside the time each day. Despite this, I was able to squeeze in just enough reading to hit that goal. Doing so helped toRead More →

Another month of reading has come to an end. November was a fairly busy month with NaNoWriMo taking up the vast majority of my time. Then toss in the release of World of Warcraft: Shadowlands and I honestly didn’t think I would have much time for reading. Though my goal was to get through five books, I had a sneaking suspicion I wouldn’t get beyond two books read. However, I could never have imagined that I would read so much given everything I had going on but I am pleasantly surprised by my reading this month.

Back in November 2018, I decided that I would make an effort to read all of the books that I owned. It was a bit of a daunting task, as my TBR was massive and felt quite overwhelming. However, in the first year I buckled down, did a lot of reading, and managed to put a fairly decent dent in my TBR. This TBR update: year two will see how much additional progress I have made in the last year. Am I still making good progress or have the books started to overwhelm me once more. TBR update: year two How does this work? WayRead More →

With the arrival of November, it’s time to take a moment and look back at all of the books I read in October. This was a fairly light reading month but that was what I had expected it to be. Even so, every book that I do get through helps me to whittle down my large TBR into something a bit more manageable. I always say it doesn’t matter whether you read 1 or a hundred books in a month, or year for that matter, as long as you are reading then that’s what matters. Everyone reads at their own speed, so you should neverRead More →

With the arrival of October, it’s time to take a moment and look back at all of the books I read in September. This month was quite busy, so I wasn’t sure how much reading I would get in. Despite this, I had set myself a goal to read 10 books this month. Reading has been my favorite pastime for many years. In fact, my love of reading, and more so buying books, was what led me to have such an enormous TBR. However, I have spent the past year and a bit working on whittling that TBR down. With each month that passes, itRead More →

With the arrival of September, it’s time to take a moment and look back at the books I read in August. Though I had grand plans of reading a ton of books this month, August was incredibly busy and I often found myself struggling to squeeze in enough reading time. I did read nearly every day, but even then it didn’t seem to be enough. Even so, I was able to get through some books, which is better than none and this is helping to reduce my giant TBR to a more manageable level as each month passes.

With the arrival of August, it’s time to take a moment to look back at the books I read in July. Saying that July was a busy month feels like a complete understatement. Even so, I made sure to set aside time to read nearly every day. Reading is my favorite way to spend time, so it’s important for me to do so as often as possible. As the months go by and with each book that I read, I am getting closer to tackling my enormous TBR. Focusing on my TBR has allowed me to put a pretty good dent in it over theRead More →

With the arrival of July, it’s time to take a moment to look back on what I read in June. June was a fairly busy month but I still managed to find time to read most days. I will admit, that there were a number of days I didn’t even look at my books because it was busy with other tasks from the moment I woke up until I went to sleep. While this did mean I didn’t get a ton of books read, I am happy with how many books I did get to. This helps me get through my massive TBR and isRead More →

With the arrival of June, it’s time to take a moment to look back on what I read in May. May was an incredibly busy month and I’m honestly surprised I found any time to read. There were some days that the books got ignored, there were just too many other priorities to give them the attention they deserved. However, over the course of the month, I did find time here and there to get some reading done. Some days I only read a chapter and others I was able to sit down for an hour to get a decent chunk read. With each monthRead More →

With the arrival of May, it’s time to take a moment and look back at what books I read during April. It was quite a busy month yet despite that I was able to get in my regular reading time. With each passing month and each book that I managed to read, I am steadily whittling down my enormous TBR. This April 2020 reading wrap-up goes over the books read in the month and my general thoughts on each of them. This post may contain affiliate links.
