MY AUGUST TBR // Using a tbr wheel for the first time!

Hi everyone, welcome back to my blog! Today I’m coming to you with my August tbr, a little bit late, but better late than never, I guess? This month I’m trying something new and using a tbr wheel with a whole bunch of prompts! I’ve never done one of these before but I wanted to change things up and hopefully make my tbr more exciting and randomised!

You can find my tbr wheel here if you also want to give it a go!

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!

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!

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!

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!
