With 2020 still in the rear-view and 51 weeks ahead of us, it’s time to take one last look back at the challenges I laid out for myself over the past year and see how I did. I’ll also be looking forward into 2021, talking about what I’d like to be doing a bit differently going forward. Priorities need some revising, as is often the case.Read More »
Well would you look at that, 2020 is nearly gone forever. Not that the year actually had anything to do with what’s gone on, but there’s a weird catharsis anyway, I suppose. How did the holidays pass by already? Madness. I hope you all enjoyed yourselves as safely as you could.
On to the last new books of the year!Read More »
November was yet another month where I could’ve sworn I got more books than I end up writing about. I think the main reason for that is I’m still waiting on a book my friend ordered me for my birthday. The shop she ordered it from is taking its time shipping it, and I guess I kept assuming I’d have it soon. I’ve been expecting to include it in one of these posts since October. Oh well, it’ll be along sometime.
Enough about the book I’m still waiting for, on to the new books!Read More »
Over October I once again took part in Frighteningly Good Reads, hosted by Molly at Silver Button Books. Be sure to check out all of her FGR reviews too!
There aren’t strict guidelines to the event as of yet, so I presented myself with a selection of books I was determined to read through before Halloween. Let’s see how I did!Read More »
I’m beside myself with how quickly October has passed. It’s been a more eventful month than normal with a number of birthdays, Thanksgiving, and general Halloween fun, with more to come, so in a way it has felt long. I guess I just want more time. Who doesn’t?
Enough wistful thinking, on to the books!Read More »
Well, I’m rather late getting this up, aren’t I? This honestly slipped my mind the first week of the month, and then I was busy for nearly another week. It’s really dispiriting how fast October has gone by. I had some hot cider for the first time, which was nice, but I haven’t stomped through a pumpkin patch yet or even fought a ghost yet.
Anyway, it’s the final stretch of 2020, and with that I’ve got less than three months to make good on my reading challenges for the year. Let’s see how I’m doing, shall we?Read More »
Once again, during the month of October I’m going to be participating in Frighteningly Good Reads, hosted by Molly over at Silver Button Books. There are no strict guidelines to it, it’s just a way for people to share and discuss the spooky books they’re reading for the Halloween season.
As I did last year, my plan is to share the books I want to read for the month here, review them as I do normally throughout October, and then put up another post around Halloween looking back at how I did.
Be sure to check out Molly’s blog if you’d like to participate.Read More »
So here’s September come and gone already (pretty much). It’s been another lowkey sort of month for new books—not sure the last time that’s happened—but I suppose it’s a welcome change for the moment. I keep feeling like I bought more, but it’s only because I meant to if they were in the shop, but they weren’t, so I didn’t. You follow?
Enough meandering. On to the books!Read More »
Though I cannot work from home due to the nature of my job, I saw this tag completed by Sammie over at The Bookwyrm’s Den and decided to take her up on her open invitation for others to participate. I’d like to thank her for sharing her post, be sure to check out hers as well.
I may not be stuck at home as much as others, but the fact is we can’t really go out and do whatever we wish like the way we used to until the pandemic is over, so it feels an appropriate tag to fill out nonetheless.
Hard to believe how quickly August has flown by. It really is the Sunday of summer. I suppose I got up to a bit more back in July though. That can certainly make a month feel longer. I’ll be happy if we don’t have any more heat waves, though. I can’t stand the humidity… Oh yeah, this is about books.
