November had come and gone. That month really flew by, but that often happens as the end of the year approaches. Despite a large number of distractions this month, and not reading many days, I did manage to get a decent amount of reading done. With every book that I read, my enormous TBR shrinks just a bit more. November in books in the eleventh installment of my ongoing series highlighting the books that I read in a month.

There was a time when I would read books as fast as I bought, sometimes even faster. This was many years ago when a TBR didn’t exist to me because I devoured books so quickly. Then I began to follow that dangerous and alluring reader path that pits TBR against reader – and the TBR more often than not wins. It’s the point when a reader buys books in vast quantities knowing they likely will never read them all, but they swear that they will one day. While I did go through that suffocating stage of feeling like my TBR would forever win, I haveRead More →

There have been a number of changes in my reading life over the years. For as long as I can remember, I have been a reader. Books are my happy place, an escape from reality and one of the best ways to entertain myself. They allow me to learn and experience wondrous stories. Yet I don’t read the same way I used to as a child or even during my teenage years. Today I will highlight all of the changes that have occurred with my reading habits. Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly bookish post hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s topic discussesRead More →

October’s reading time has come to an end. There is something about the cooler weather that just makes me want to curl up with a good book. In fact, I spent a pretty good amount of time this month reading. While not my strongest reading month, I did get through quite a few books. My daily reading time, plus tossing in extra time when a book demands my full attention is a big contributor to putting a big dent in my enormous TBR.

For as long as I can remember, I have loved to read books. Many hours were spent in the library picking out which books I wanted to read next. As a child, I read books as fast as I could get my hands on them. Though my love of reading has not diminished, I no longer can read as quickly as before. This is likely because the books I read now are a bit longer and not as easy to read. This has led me to have a huge TBR, but I’m working on that. Sometimes, I think about the books that I loved whenRead More →

Septembers reading time has come to an end. The past couple of months have been a struggle reading-wise. However, in September I was finally able to get back into a good reading rhythm. Sticking to a daily reading schedule, and adding in some extra time on certain days really helped. Because of this, I was able to put a nice little dent in my enormous TBR. Of course, I also added to that TBR because of a visit to my favorite used book store. September in books is the ninth installment in my ongoing series highlighting what I read each month.

The leaves are changes, temperatures are dropping and the nights are getting shorter. A sure sign that fall has arrived. Fall is a great time to curl up with a blanket, a cup of something warm and a good book. I love reading no matter what time of year it is. However, I thought it would be fun to share a fall TBR with you. Thanks to Top Ten Tuesday, I can do just that. Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly bookish post run by That Artsy Reader Girl.

August has come to an end and so has my reading time for the month. With each month that passes, ensuring that I stick with, or sometimes surpass, my monthly reading goals, I am able to reduce the number of books in my enormous TBR. There was a time when I thought I would never reach the end of my TBR. However, I can now see that it won’t take me as long as I thought to get through all of the remaining books. Despite being not the strongest of reading months, I am still happy with what I did read in August. Honestly, asRead More →

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.
