Hey everyone, welcome or welcome back to my blog! Today I’m coming to you with a new week-long challenge post and this time I read only 2022 releases for a week! There have been some really fantastic books published this year but I still have so many books on my 2022 tbr. I know I did this back in July already but I loved it so much that I’m doing it again!

i read popular booktok books for a week | the cruel prince, it ends with us, shatter me + electric idol
Hey everyone, welcome or welcome back to my blog! If you’ve been on my blog lately you’ve probably noticed me doing some of these week-long reading challenges and this is my latest one! Today I’m letting you in on my recent challenge of reading popular books that BookTok (bookish TikTok) has recommended. Some of these really surprised me, I won’t lie, I was expecting to see more new releases and was hoping for more diverse authors and characters but, so many of the books that BookTok seems to recommend seem to be written by and for white and straight audiences and also seems to focus on very popular backlist books that I feel did the rounds on Bookstagram and BookTube years ago (*coughs* the cruel prince). So, I had to do quite a bit of searching, but I tried to make a tbr that would work more for me as a reader while also working for this experiment, since I was going off of other people’s recommendations.
Also, I used a spin wheel that I found randomly on google and I put my tbr into it and basically just spun and read whatever won each round! I wanted to use this method to try and make the books I was reading more ‘fair’ and try to lessen myself reading just one ‘type’ of book throughout the week.Continue reading “i read popular booktok books for a week | the cruel prince, it ends with us, shatter me + electric idol”
a tbr jar chose what i read for 4 days and i ended up in a reading slump 🤦♀️ ~ wolfsong, a lesson in thorns, a not so meet cute, today tonight tomorrow
Hi everyone, welcome or welcome back to my blog! At the start of the month, I decided to do something a bit different that I never usually do since I’m a mood reader, I let a tbr jar decide what I read! This was originally meant to be a week-long challenge but I ended the week in a reading slump so you’re just seeing the first 4 days lol. I really enjoyed this experiment and I got some VERY mixed results!
Also, on my notes that I put in the jar, I also put quick explanations of what I already knew about each book along with the length of the audiobook, which is what you’re seeing next to the book covers whenever I talk about the books in this post! Some I definitely knew more about than others! 😂
