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.

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.

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.

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 →

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.

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.
