June TBR | Sims-a-thon

I wasn’t planning on doing any readathons over the summer but there was no way that I could resist this perfect Sims-a-thon! Readathons have always been a great way to encourage me to read and I feel that now is a great time to take advantage of that motivation given my YALC (July) and Hugo Awards (August) reading lists. What better way to tackle these reading lists than combining my goals and my love of reading with my love for the Sims?!

May ‘TBR’ | Moody May!

By now I’m sure most of you are aware that I’m taking part in Moody May as my enthusiasm over mood reading has led me to mention it at almost every available moment in my recent blogs! I had initially planned to take part in another readathon but I really need a break from structured TBR as well as the pressure of keeping up with reviews. I’ve noticed that the combined constraints of my TBR and stress of ARC reviews were leading me to read much slower than I otherwise would, leading me into reading slumps and all around sadness. Plus, sometimes books that had been patiently waiting on my long-term TBR list would one day call out to me only for their pleas to be read to go ignored…

No longer! Moody May is here to save the day and help me take a much needed, more relaxed approach to reading. As part of Moody May is to be free from TBR’s this post isn’t so much of a TBR as a “Moody May sign-up and list of books I might like to read” post.

April TBR | Bringing back the O.W.Ls again

I had not been intending to join in with the O.W.Ls readathon again this year, in fact, I had entirely forgotten about it until I saw Alexa’s readathon TBR post. I deliberated whether I would take part or not as I already had other plans but I was convinced by the amazing new set up of the readathon, particularly the introduction of the Wizarding Careers booklet which you can check out here! Major props to the creator, Book Roast, for creating such a brilliant event that successfully drew me back.

Down the TBR Hole |#5

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

Hey friendies, welcome back to our normal Down the TBR Hole service. Last time, we took a little diversion from the usual format of Down the TBR Hole to use the KonMarie method on my physical book shelves. ICYMI you can find the post here! It turned out to be a super successful way to sort through all of my books and my house (and bookshelves) feel a lot nicer. I’ve also been making some progress on my first Down the TBR Hole deadlines which I’ll be sharing in a progress post soon.

For now though, let’s crack on with our normal service and keep tackling that pesky Goodreads shelf.

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?

March TBR | The Month of the ARCs (again)

Hey panda pops!

February turned out to be an absolutely terrible reading month for me with only 2 books read and I have a lot of new release ARCs that I need to read for this month so I am praying that March turns out to be a much better reading month for me. I’ve already managed to finish one ARC – You Asked for Perfect by Laura Silverman – which I absolutely adored and I’m onto my second ARC so fingers crossed the rest of the month goes as smoothly.
