February has come to an end. When it came to reading, I did a decent amount. February was another strange month, much like January. Only this time I wasn’t bombarded by snow. It was more of a lack of time and desire. Even so, I was able to put a small dent in my TBR, which is always a great feeling. I might have read more, but I also spent a lot of time on a book that I ended up abandoning partway through the month. This February 2020 reading wrap-up will cover all of the books that I read during the month and myRead More →

What better time to talk about my favorite romance books & series than February? It’s the month of love after all. With Valentine’s Day and Galentine’s Day coming up, it’s the perfect opportunity to dive into some great romance novels. Now, I will admit, I used to think that romance was a silly genre of books and some of them are. However, after exploring some romance within other genres, I came to appreciate these books a bit more and now they make regular appearances on my TBR. I don’t always seek out romance stories, but if a book has a good solid romance that complimentsRead More →

January has come to an end and so too has the first month of reading of 2020.¬†This was quite an odd reading month. I did not put in as much reading time as I normally would in. Part of that was due to spending a large chunk of my time cleaning up after mother nature’s frequent dumpings of snow. Some days, I just couldn’t hold a book after all of that. Then I went through a bought of struggling to read a book that I eventually gave up on but unfortunately I stuck with it for too long. Even so, I did manage to getRead More →

Part of being a reader is looking for new books and authors to read. Of course, this can also quickly turn into an overwhelming large TBR. However, with the right balance of buying and reading, a reader can keep up with their TBR. I absolutely love sharing books that I have bought, and especially those that I have read. Seeing what others have recently bought is also great, as it gives me new books to add to the TBR. That’s where Top Ten Tuesday comes in.

This is it, the final day of the month and year. Though there are a few hours left to read, I am going to share the books I have read this month. To be perfectly honest, I know I won’t finish another book before the month ends. Despite being distracted by the holidays and my many goals, I actually got a decent amount of reading done. True, I wish I had have read more, but I am very happy with how much I got done.

Books are one of my favorite gifts to give and receive. In fact, most years when anyone asks me what I want, whether it’s for the holidays or my birthday, the immediate answer I give is books. Whether it’s graphic novels, non-fiction tomes, quick to read middle-grade or high fantasy, there are books for everyone. Though I have cut back on buying books, mostly so that I can tackle my large, yet ever-shrinking TBR, there are plenty of books I still want to own and read. This week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic is books I hope to find under my tree. Top Ten Tuesday isRead More →

Winter has been around for a while now, despite what the calendars say. Winter is one of the best times to read, especially since it’s often too cold to go outside. So why not curl up with a good book or two? Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly bookish post run by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s topic: books on my winter TBR. I don’t tend to stick to TBR piles, though I do pick out books I want to read on a monthly basis. Truth is, I do my best to read what I pick out, but sometimes you just need to pickRead More →

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.

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.

September’s 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.
