MY APRIL TBR // The month where I WILL rate something higher than 2 stars

Hi friends, welcome back to my blog! 2021 so far has been completely crazy and very rocky in terms of reading, especially now that I’m back at uni. March was a pretty good reading month in terms of pages and quanitity but, most of them were 2 star reads so overall it was a bit of a mess and aletdown BUT I have higher hopes for April!

Fingers crossed I get to at least some of the books on my tbr, and that I rate them higher than 2 stars!

*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!

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!

FEBRUARY TBR ⇀ Attempting 28 in 28 πŸ“š

In January I read a riduclous amount of books so guess who’s trying to make lightining strike twice! πŸ˜‚πŸ™ˆ I have to go back to Uni in March so I’m trying to fit in as much reading as I can before I am forced to really slow down and focus on other things. I will be going back to working two jobs this month so I have literally no idea how reading a book every day will go for me but I’m hoping I can catch up on the weekends.

Also, a fun update for my reading throughout this year. My tbrs have always been more of a guide for my reading and a show of the mood I’m in at the beginning of the month, but I’ve decided this year that I’m going stop forcing myself to read off my tbr if I’m not in the mood for the books. 2021 is about getting through out and being realistic. 2021 is the year of the mood read.
*If you’re interested to know my thoughts on a particular book though, please do still tell me because that will definitely give me extra motivation to pick it up!

JANUARY TBR ⇀ Kicking off 2021! βœ¨πŸ“šπŸŒ»

January is more about getting to know what kind of a reader and blogger and in general, human I want to be in 2021. So, I’m mostly planning on getting my blog schedule sorted and reading as much as I can, since last month I tried to watch a movie every day. I have a few buddy reads planned for this month but apart from that I’m really hoping to just relax, listen to a bunch of audiobooks and play animal crossing.

I haven’t added the comics, maga of graphic novels on my tbr to this post because I’ll have a seperate blog post for those. But, I thought I’d mention here that a mini round of Graphicsathon is happening again from the 16th of January to the 19th in your time zone!

🌻 – Buddy read ⇀ 🎧 – Audiobook ⇀ πŸ“š – Library book ⇀ πŸ’» – Ebook/Kindle
πŸ” – Re-read ⇀ 🌈 – LGBTQIA+ rep ⇀ ❀ – 2021 release

DECEMBER TBR // finally taking time off and getting back to reading!

Long time no see! I know I said I was going to get back into blogging and at the time I was telling thr truth but then a whole lot happened all at once and (again) I’ve been working 3 jobs and really haven’t had time to think let alone write a blog post. But, I finish up 2 of my jobs within the next week so I’ll have a bunch of time to get back to a normal life schedule sooner than later! Trust me, no one is more excited about the school holidays then I am (did I mention I’m a teacher?).

As for my actual plans for the month, I don’t have many because I prefer to wind down at the end of the year. But, I would like to continue watching Criminal Minds and My Hero Academia and possibly maybe read some books????

I’m not aiming to read a book a day because I already know that’s an irresponsible and impossible goal for me this month but I do want to try my hardest to read as much as I can since I haven’t read a whole lot in the last few months, so I’ll be reading some comics and manga (hopefully) and catching up on some of the books I missed out on earlier this year.

THE TOP 20 BOOKS I WANT TO READ BY THE END OF 2020

It’s officially November! We only have 2 more months left in 2020 which kind of baffles me because I feel like 2020 has been 3x longer than it should have been! So, since we only have two months left in the year, I figured I’d make a quick list of the top 20 books I’d like to read before the end of the year, and fun fact I’ve already read one of these!

NOVEMBER TBR // Too Ambitious???

Hi friends, welcome back to my blog! It’s been a while since I’ve been properly blogging but I’m officially back in the groove now that uni is over for the year and I’m fully prepared to start writing full blog posts again, starting with my tbr for the month!

So, I don’t think I read a single thing from my tbr last month because I ended up only having a few days out of the month to actually read but this month I have a bunch of books and comics out from the library that I’m super excited to get to asap!

This month I will also be trying to watch a movie every day, if you want to see what movies I’ll be watching!

OCTOBER TBR… Almost no plans but excited to be here all the same! πŸ™ˆπŸ˜‚β€πŸ‘»

Hey friends,welcome back to my blog! I’m sorry I haven’t been around as much lately, I’ve been swamped with school work but I’m hoping that will change in the next few weeks!

I don’t have any crazy plans for the month unfortunately! I still have school for the next week and then I dive straight into the GraphicsAthon! So, if I’m honest, most of my plans just consist of goingg as nuts as I possibly can and reading as many graphic novels as I can until I can’t read anymore and the readathon ends!#

My GraphicsAthon tbr πŸ’•πŸ“šβœ¨πŸ’¬ | 35 books… 9 days… I’m fine. It’s fine.

It’s that time of year folks! Uni is just about finished for the term (until I go back at the end of the month…) so you know what that means! It’s time to read as much as humanly possible in the short time frame made available to me by the Higher Education Overlords!

And if you have no idea what I’m talking about – Destiny, Rebecca and I have brought back the GraphicsAthon for a second round and to say that I’m excited would be an understatement! I tried to really branch out with some of my tbr choices for this round, but in doing so I may have doomed myself because I officially have 36 reads in my tbr stack sitting on my desk… whoops?

You can find my announcement post for the readathon here, and you can follow the official Twitter for the readathon here.
