As we have been getting closer to the end of the year, that means that everyone is rushing to reach their Goodreads goal, and that is where my discussion today comes in. The Goodreads reading challenge is a fun way to see how many books you actually read in a year and compare that with your friends, but sometimes that can hinder you more than it would help you.
I’m always talking about how I have this bad habit of buying books in series I haven’t even started yet, but I’ve never really given any examples of exactly how bad this habit is! So today I thought it would be fun to show you the series that I own at least two books of that I haven’t read yet. I’m sure that this list is going to be a doozy, so let’s just get right into it. I’ll also mention at the bottom of the list the series that I own and have only read one book (or part of one book) of so far, just to get them all in here. Wish me luck (and don’t judge me too hard)!
It’s the fifth day of the ABC book challenge for me, which means the letter this week is E! This may be a tough letter for me but hopefully I can find a few books for each category. If you are unaware, this challenge involves mentioning books that start with a certain letter that were memorable, and ones that are on your TBR. So let’s just get right into this week’s letter. And as always, each title is a link to the Goodreads page for each book.
It’s Wednesday so that means I’m doing another TBR Lows & Highs post! This series has been so much fun so far and it’s really prompted me to clear out my TBR on Goodreads so it’s not extremely long. I feel like my physical TBR is almost the size of my Goodreads TBR at this point in my life, but that’s a whole other problem.
Hey everyone! It’s been a few days since I last posted anything, mainly because I was so worn out from Blogtober that I just wanted to take a few days off before starting up again. I ended up doing 30 days of Blogtober (I only missed one day and that was because I was reading Kingdom of Ash). Because I’ve been so overwhelmed with blogging and creating posts lately, I decided that I would take it easy today with a reading update!
Today is another Top 5 Wednesday post! I’ll leave a link here to the Goodreads group if you are interested in joining. Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly meme where you are given a topic and give your top 5 answers! This week, the topic is characters you would cosplay as. Since I don’t cosplay, I’ll do this more as a Halloween costume type of post.
I didn’t read nearly as many books this month as I usually do, but that may be due to the fact that we are getting closer to the end of the year which means I’m getting closer to my Goodreads goal! I definitely think that I’ll pass that goal, but I just feel like maybe I should slow down and enjoy the books a bit more than just trying to crank them out.
Once again, I bought way too many books this month, but I’m excited for them all and the majority of them were from Book Outlet, which means that they were really cheap so I didn’t spend as much money as it looks like I did. And of course, the majority of these are fantasy books because that’s my favorite genre! So let’s just get right into it.
I had a completely different post planned today, but I just finished reading Kingdom of Ash yesterday and I just want to talk about it so badly that I decided to get my
review thoughts up today so I can chat with people about what has happened! I will be discussing things that happened in the book, so if you haven’t read KOA yet you may not want to read the rest of this post. But just know that I don’t think I will ever recover from this book.
It’s Friday, which means it’s time for another entry into the ABC Book Challenge! It’s the fourth week, which means this week the letter is D. If you aren’t up-to-date on what this challenge is, what you do is name at least one book that is on your TBR that starts with D and at least one book that starts with D that is a memorable book you’ve read. There are a lot of fantastic books this week, so make sure you check them out if you’re interested in them!
