NOVEMBER TBR

I don’t have massively high hopes for my reading this month. I’m working a lot and uni is starting up again so I really don’t think I’ll be reading much for the rest of the year, but if I do get to any books they’ll probably be on this list!

MY OCTOBER TBR | I’m going Christmas crazy! πŸŽ…πŸŽ„

Hi everyone, welcome back to my blog! Today I’m showing you all my tbr for this coming month! In September I hit a bit of a snag and got into a reading slump but I’m on my way out of it now and excited to get reading. I’m very much trying to distract myself with the thought that Christmas is coming soon so yes, I do know we haven’t had Halloween yet but we don’t actually celebrate that in Australia, so I’m moving right on to the December festivities! Don’t be suprised if there are a lot of Xmas books and movies in my wrap up!

Also, just a reminder that The Hoemance Book Club is reading A Pizza My Heart this month and I can’t wait to read it with you all! We had an absolute blast reading The Heart Principle last month!

I also wanted to mention that since I don’t do book recommendation posts quite as much on my blog anymore I have started doing them over on the Hoemance Book Club instagram account and I have some really cool posts planned for over there! You can also find us here on Twitter.

MY SEPTEMBER TBR

Hi everyone, welcome back to my blog! Today I’m showing you all my tbr for September! In August I tried out a tbr wheel and loved it but this month I’m just focusing on reading graphic novels and reading the things I’m really excited for. I’ll be doing a lot of mood reading this month!

September is also the first month when we’re kickstarting the Hoemance Book Club with The Heart Principle and I cannot wait to read it with you all!

SECOND HALF OF 2021 TBR

Hey everyone, welcome back to my blog! Today I’m in the mood to talk books so I’m going to go through the top 10 books on my tbr for the rest of 2021 since somehow August is almost over? Also, I’m listening to the Guardians of the Galaxy in vol 1 soundtrack so it’s put me in a really really happy mood. If you’re listening to anything right now, let me know in the comments so I can add it to my Spotify playlist.

July tbr | THE OLYMPIC GAMES READATHON + TRYING TO READ 31 BOOKS IN 31 DAYS πŸ™ˆ

Hi everyone, welcome to my blog! Today I’m bringing you my July tbr and this month I am getting AMBITIOUS! Last month I participated in and hosted the Graphicsathon which got me into a really positive and motivated reading mood so now all I want to do is read! So, I’m challenging myself in July to read a book everyday and to also participate in the Olympic Games readathon which is based around the Percy Jackson series (which you don’t have to have read to participate in the readathon!)

*If you’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!

MY GRAPHICSATHON ROUND 4 TBR (JUNE 21ST-27TH) πŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œ

Hi everyone, welcome back to my blog! I’m just ducking in here quickly to go through my Graphicsathon tbr and all the prompts for the readathon for anyone who missed the announcement earlier this month! I’m super excited about this round because I’ve finally manage to set it at a time where I don’t have assessments due so now I can read as much as I want without having to worry about other things!

You can find the StoryGraph reading challenge for this specifc round here. It’s a lot of fun seeing what everyone is adding to each prompt and I can’t wait to go through it after the readathon to see what everyone read! The google doc for this round should also be done in the next day or two so that will be linked on the Twitter!

ALL THE BOOKS ON MY JUNE TBR // Happy Pride! πŸŒˆπŸŒˆπŸŒˆ

Hi everyone, welcome to my blog! Today I’m bringing you my June tbr and it’s FULL of queer new releases and some fun backlist book that I’ve been meaning to get to for ages! I read A LOT of books in May so I’m hoping to really keep that momentum going for Pride and to also continue my amazing reading streak with the Graphicsathon later this month! I’m not going to lie, I’ve already read two books this month and I’m currently stuck into my third, but it’s only day 2 of the month so I’m trying not to get too far ahead of myself and I’m desperately trying not to get too cocky because then I’ll immediately get into a reading slump! Let me know if there are any books on my tbr that you’re also planning on picking up or if there are any I should avoid!

*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!

MAY TBR | 🀞🀞 Classics and 2021 Releases! (will i finally rate something above 2.5 stars?)

Hi friends, welcome to my blog! So, March and April were a bit messy and I didn’t read many books that I rated above 2.5 stars but it’s a new month and I have faith that I’m going to read some truly fantastic books! I have a few buddy reads lined up with Rebecca that I’m really excited for and I also have some older titles that I’ve been meaning to pick up for YEARS so I have my fingers crossed that I’ll enjoy them!
