2021 Love/Hate Challenge ⇀ Content Out of My Comfort Zone! πŸ€”β‰πŸ“šπŸŽ¬

Hi everyone, welcome back to my blog and welcome to my challenge wrap up for February! If you don’t already know, Rebecca and I are doing a year-long challenge where we pick 2 books and 2 movies for the other person to read and we have to review them ourselves and also decide which we think the other person loved and which one they hated.

This month we picked content that was out of the other person’s comfort zone and oh boy did Rebecca succeed! πŸ˜‚ I’m not gonna lie, when I saw the books she chose for me I got a little scared!

Make sure to check out Rebecca’s wrap up to read her thoughts on this month’s theme!

MY MARCH TBR + THE BOOKS ON MY RADAR (+ The Backlist Readathon)

Hi friends, welcome back to my blog! In January I read 44 books and in February I read 29 so you could say that I’ve been reading intensely high above my usual rate per month so far in 2021. But, for March I’m going back to uni as well as working so I’ll be busy almost every day. So yeah, I think it’s safe to say that my days of reading and finishing a book every day are over. It was fun while it lasted but now I’m going to focus on bigger books and just mood reading whatever’s on my tbr from the library

I’m actually really excited for March because I’m hoping that because of my long bus trips to school I’ll be able to listen to some longer books and maybe even read some 2021 releases since I know I’ve been missing out on some great new releases lately.

All in all, March is about chilling out and reading whatever I’m in the mood for, whether it’s a quick novella or a 900-page book!

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

February Statistics Wrap Up! ⇀ 2021 Stats πŸ˜

Hi friends, welcome back to my blog! Last month I had a blast going through my January reading stats with you all so I figured why not keep this going for the rest of the year? I think this will be an interesting experiement, especially during uni terms!

So far, 2021 is going really well reading-wise and I’ve already read 73 books πŸ˜‚πŸ˜¬. So yeah, I hope you enjoy this post… let’s get to talkin’ stats!

You can find my February wrap up here. I always go through all of the books I read throughout the month, as well as the tv and movies I watched.

FEBRUARY WRAP UP ⇀ 29 books in 28 days! Desperately trying to evade a reading slump πŸ˜‚πŸ“šβ€

Hi friends, welcome back to my blog! Today I’m coming to you with my (shorter than last month’s, but still pretty long) February wrap up! I’ve decided that this year I want to do my wrap ups differently and that they’ll be spread across 3 different blog posts so expect my Love/’Hate challenge wrap up , my Feb stats and my tbr to be coming your way in the next few days!

So… Feburary… How was the shortest month of the year also the longest??? I worked a whole lot and I started prepping for uni and I got very stressed and then I got too relaxed and then I got anxious about not being stressed and then I started getting into a reading slump and then I *just* barely escaped a slump and then I almost got into another one and now we’re here.

So, it’s been a long month but I read something every day and I genuinely enjoyed what I read so I’m super excited for March even though I know I will be even busier than I’ve been in months. Heads up, there won’t be any crazy challenge for March because I’ll be starting uni so no more 31 books in 31 days posts because I’ll be lucky if I finish even two books.

WWW Wednesday // 24.02.2021 | Starting to slow down! Falling into a reading bubble?

Hi friends, welcome back to my blog! Today I’m coming at you with an update for how my reading has been going for the last week, and what I’ll be reading over the next weeks!

As you may or may not know if you frequent my blog, I’m currently doing 28 in 28 for all of February. So, I’m aiming to read 28 books in February and so far I’ve read 26! I’m also well ahead of my StoryGraph and Goodreads goals which is really exciting! I’m definitely going to slow my roll in March though, because it’s suprisingly exhausitnf reading a book a day… Also, genre-wise I think I’m falling in a reading safe space which you’d think would be a good thing but actually it just means I’m not branching out with my reading, so I’m hoping that in March I’ll be able to read more diversely than I have been this month.

EVERYTHING I CURRENTLY HAVE ON HOLD AT THE LIBRARY | aka. a glimpse at my march tbr

Hi everyone, welcome back to my blog and welcome to the newest addition to my library updates series! I did a few of these last year and really enjoyed talking about the books on my immediate tbr, so I figured why not carry that rhgouth into 2021?

I have 14… Yes, 14 books on this list so grab a drink and a snack! I pretty much always have 5+ books on my holds list at all times because I’m notorious for putting books with long wait times on my holds list (this isn’t even talking about my Libby holds which I’d be happy to do a post about!) because I find that I tend to put a lot of new releases on my holds list in advance for my next month’s tbr! This systems works for me because I find that having the books physically in my room always reminds me to read them and gives me structure for my reading month! (especially since I typically read exclusively via audiobooks so i can often get lost down the rabbit hole but, having the books in my line of vision really helps me stay “on track”.)

WWW Wednesday 17.02.2021 | Falling into a reading slump??? πŸ˜°πŸ˜«πŸ˜¬

Hi friends, welcome back to my blog! Today I’m coming at you with an update for how my reading has been going for the last week, and what I’ll be reading over the next weeks!

As you may or may not know if you frequent my blog, I’m currently doing 28 in 28 for all of February. So, I’m aiming to read 28 books in February and so far I’ve read 18! I’m also well ahead of my StoryGraph and Goodreads goals which makes me very happy. I do think it’ll be interesting to see how my reading goes in March though because I really think if I don’t slow down I might fall into a reading slump which would be really unfortunate since I’ve been really loving reading lately.

That being said, I am falling into a re-read focused mood so I wouldn’t be suprised if, for the rest of the month you just see me reading regency romances and re-reads. We’ll see!

The TBR Tag // TAG MONDAY

Hi friends, welcome back to my blog and welcome to Tag Monday! This is a new feature on my blog that I’m hoping to keep up with for the whole of 2021. I’ve been a bit slack with posting over the last year so I’m hoping that having a dedicated day to write up some tag answers will give me the motivation to also write other posts and talk with all of you!

Today I’m doing the TBR Tag because I’ve been going through my Goodreads tbr a lot lately to try and transfer it over to the StoryGraph, so I figured why not do the tag to go with the activity?!

The original tag was created by A Perfection Called Books and you can find it here.

WWW Wednesday 10.02.2021 | Trying to avoid a slump!

Hi friends, welcome back to my blog! Today I’m coming at you with an update for how my reading has been going for the last week, and what I’ll be reading over the next weeks!

I’m currently doing 28 in 28 for February and so far it’s going pretty okay for me! So far I’m on track for reading a book a day but I think if I’m not careful I’m going to get into a reading slump. I’ve got my fingers crossed I read some great books this week!
