WWW Wednesday | 16th January 2019

WWW Wednesday is hosted by Sam @ Taking on a World of Words! All you have to do is answers the following three questions:

What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next?

I’ve recently become interested in the idea of WWW Wednesday after seeing a couple of posts from new blogging friends and decided to join in with the fun. It’s a nice way to give you a little weekly snapshot of my reading progress (as well as hold myself accountable haha).

How to hype your favourite reads

It’s been quite a long time since I’ve done a discussion post and today I wanted to discuss with you all different ways that we can hype and support our favourite reads outside of reviews.

Down the TBR Hole was originally created by Lia @ Lost in a Story

Over the past year I’ve seen many of my friends join in with this meme but never felt to urge to myself. However, as the new year approaches, I’ve been spending reflecting on my reading and blogging for 2019 which led me to finally pay attention to the fact that I still have books from 2012 (when I first made my Goodreads) on my TBR shelf. As I want to actually tackle my backlist books in a more structured way next year I decided it would be a great time to actually join in with Down the TBR Hole to control that pesky, ever-growing TBR!

How it works:

  • Go to your goodreads to-read shelf.
  • Order on ascending date added.
  • Take the first 5 (or 10 books)
  • Read the synopses of the books
  • Decide: keep it or should it go?
