July has come to an end and so has my reading time for the month. Thanks to my monthly reading goals, I have made a visible dent in my enormous TBR pile and can finally say I see the light at the end of the tunnel. There are still a few hundred books I need to read, but at least there are gaps in my bookshelves now. Slowly but surely knocking it out. Though July was filled with a lot of distractions I still managed to get my regular daily reading time. July in books is the seventh installment in my ongoing series highlighting theRead More →

June has ended and with it my reading time for the month. Lately, I have been doing really well with tackling my huge TBR and months like May were fantastic for putting a major dent in those numbers. Knowing that June was to be a busy month, I accepted the fact that I wouldn’t read as much as in previous months. June in books is the sixth installment of my ongoing series about the books I read each month. Here I will share with you what books I read in June and my thoughts on each of them.

My reading time in May has come to an end. It was another fantastic reading month. Honestly, I don’t even know how I read so much, especially given how busy I was over the month. I have been doing a really good job focusing on reducing my TBR. Back in April, I did a ton of reading, yet even that is nothing compared to what I read in May.

Books, books, and more books! That is the best way to describe my reading in April. I thought I had read a lot in March, but April was an even stronger reading month.

March was by far my best reading month so far this year. I have to admit, I’m actually surprised by how many books I got through. Especially when the beginning of the month was filled with slow reads. However, thanks to setting aside daily reading time, and a lot of determination to put as big of a dent as possible in my huge TBR, I managed to pull off a large reading spree at the end. Once I picked up one book, I blew through it and moved right on to the next. March in books is the continuation of a monthly series that showcasesRead More →

February has come to a close. The month was short, however, that didn’t stop me from getting plenty of reading done. Back in January, I decided to share my thoughts on my monthly reads. In doing this, I hope to inspire people to read more, while tackling my large TBR. I have to say, I’m pretty happy with how much I read in February given that it’s the shortest month of the year.

The month January has come to an end. During the month I had a goal of reading 8 books. I managed to achieve that and more, so I thought it would be fun to share my thoughts on the books that I read. Reading is one of my favorite hobbies. It is a great way to spend a cold January night, curled up with a blanket. Plus when you have an enormous TBR like I do you need to regularly read in order to keep up with it. January in books is the start of an ongoing series which will highlight the books that IRead More →
