MY END OF YEAR TBR | can i read 31 books in 31 days??? ๐Ÿ˜ง๐Ÿ˜“

Hey everyone, welcome or welcome back to my blog! I originally had an entire tbr set out and scheduled day by day but we’re 2 days into the month and I can already tell you that my plans are absolutely not going to work out and I’m going to have to change things up already. I have high hopes of reading 31 books in 31 days this month but mostly I’m just hoping I finish the year out with a bang and that I read books that I actually really enjoy!

Here’s a quick reminder that Graphicsathon round 7 is currently going on and you still have time to join!

*If youโ€™re interested to know my thoughts on a particular book, please do tell me because that will definitely give me extra motivation to pick it up!

How To Read Mariana Zapataโ€™s Books | Publication Order vs Chronological Order | Updated 2022

Hey everyone, welcome to or welcome back to my blog! Today I’m going through how to read Mariana Zapata’s books. Mariana Zapata is one of my favourite authors of all time and definitely my favourite romance author. her books can all be read as standalone but a lot of the later ones included cameos with other characters so today I’m writing up a quick summary of which books are connected and how you should read them.

Honestly, I started with The Wall of Winnipeg and Me and then went from there and I think it’s fine to just pick and choose whatever most interests you and then go on from there. The cameos rarely impact the plot in any major way and you can treat all of MZ’s books as standalones, but if you want to read in either publication or chronological (from what I can guess) order, that’s what I’m going through today!

If you’re looking for a quick graphic to save to your phone I highly recommend this one I found on Pinterest.

my ebook, netgalley + kindle unlimited tbr (nov 2022)

Hey everyone, welcome to or welcome back to my blog! I’m trying my hardest to start writing blog posts in advance of when I actually have them scheduled to come out while also trying to balance my mood-writing tendencies. So, today I’m really in the mood to talk about all of the ebooks on my tbr so I’m going to go through my Kindle and Netgalley apps and tell you all of the unread books I have on my tbr! (*spoiler: there’s a lot, but I won’t lie, I thought there would be a tonne more than there actually is)

I’ve been getting into the habit of reading books on my kindle app lately before bed and whenever I’m on my lunch breaks at work and it’s honestly making me feel so accomplished! I’ve read some real bangers but I’ve also unfortunately read some absolute flops so I can’t wait to see what I think of *all the books that I currently have on my owned tbr + my kindle unlimited tbr!

*not including my graphic novels, comics or manga

i read the entire kingdom of the wicked trilogy in 12 hours lol i’m unhinged

Hey everyone, welcome to or welcome back to my blog! I’m in the mood for some romance today and I have the day off from work so I’ve decided to take advantage of my reading motivation! It’s 11am and since today is the only day this week that I’m not busy so I’m dedicating the entire day to reading the Kingdom of the Wicked trilogy by Kerry Mainsalco. The last book in the trilogy came out in late September and I’ve been waiting for a free day to binge the trilogy and today is finally that day!

I have read book 1 before but I haven’t read the other books so I’m excited to see where this trilogy goes, especially since I don’t really remember what happens in book 1!
