I have no idea who originally created this tag, but every time I see someone do it on their youtube channel or blog I just really want to do it myself, so that’s what I’ll be doing today! This book tag was created around the idea of people giving the disclaimer that everything is their own opinion, and just because they hated (or liked!) a book that you don’t it doesn’t mean that your opinion is invalid. Personally, I think it’s kind of obvious that everyone will have different opinions and to each their own, but oh well. So let’s just get into the tag and find out what some of my opinions are, with no disclaimer!
I mentioned a few times recently on Twitter that I’ve been in a reading slump lately, and my wrap up really proves that point! I also said that the break I took away from blogging was to do more reading, and while I technically did read, I never finished anything. It’s gonna be a pretty short post today, so let’s just hop right in!
I honestly didn’t think I bought this many books in November! From here on out, I am officially on a book buying ban. I will not place any more Book Outlet orders or books from Amazon with the exception of my preorders. We’ll see how this goes, but I’m going to try really hard! But you don’t want to know about that, you want to see the books I got!
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.
