WWW Wednesday | 11.25.2020

WWW Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Sam @Taking on a World of Words. The aim is to give an update on what you’ve read and what you plan on reading in the future. As always, I’m not very consistent with this weekly meme being that I don’t always finish reading a book inContinue reading “WWW Wednesday | 11.25.2020”

We’re at the point in the year where you’re either way ahead in your Goodreads goals or scrambling to catch up before the end of December.

Currently Reading | 11.16.2020

I decided to take today to talk about the book that I’m currently reading. Because I’m actually physically reading a book (well, it’s an ebook, but I’m not listening to it)! Which I know is still reading, but I really want to try to get back into taking time out of my day to actuallyContinue reading “Currently Reading | 11.16.2020”

Books I’ve Recently Added to my TBR | 11.13.2020

I know a lot of people are trying to get they’re TBRs down, especially with the end of the year right around the corner and so many new books being published.

Goodreads Monday | 11.9.2020

I feel like I’m not that consistent with these types of posts; I tend to do them once a month (if that). But I enjoy doing them. With these types of posts, I’m able to determine if the book I discuss is one that I want to keep on my TBR. Goodreads Monday is aContinue reading “Goodreads Monday | 11.9.2020”

Currently Reading | 11.6.2020

The title of this post should probably be ‘Currently Not Reading’ because that’s what I’ve been doing. Not reading. I have a couple books that I started, and by started I mean I read maybe the first 20 pages of each. So I’m not far into them. And I can make excuses left and rightContinue reading “Currently Reading | 11.6.2020”
