TBR Tuesday: Reading All the Things!

Hello Everyone,

I’m now going to post my tbrs on Tuesday and my weekly check-ins on Friday. I hope to stick to the schedule but with my scattered mind we’ll see. Here’s what I’m working on!


Current Reads

ITS FINALLY HERE!!! My library copy of Babel has come in! I hope to start reading it tonight!

I’m in a fantasy heavy mood, and I’m also reading some classics off the banned book lists, and some old fantasy and sci-fi books that I missed out on. My reading is all over the place as I attempt to cram in all I can before the end of the year.

I have a few things to tackle such as Banned Books, Newberry Awards, Women Authors, Goodreads Nominees, and Read Your Own Bookshelf. I hope to get through these and I’m at 15 books for the month already! I’m crossing my fingers that I can keep up the momentum into the new year and start off strong. Are you reading any of these? Let me know in the comments!

Until next time,

Current Reads: I’ve Already Read 12 Books So Far!

Hello Everyone,

Another current reads where I talk about what I’ve read so far this month. And I’m impressed with myself, I managed twelve (and a half!) books already! ☺️👏 Now granted I’m not anywhere near my Netgalley goal. I’ve read four Netgalley books (I’m working on the forth as we speak!) and I haven’t increased my percentage at all. But it’s still early. Let’s talk about what I’ve read!


Books Read:

I hate to say it. But I dnf’d this book and series. It just didn’t work for me. I didn’t like the characters, I didn’t like the plot and I just gave it up. This was my second attempt and I’m calling it quits. Sorry for all the fans out there but this just wasn’t my cup of tea. 2 ⭐.

Immediately after that I read this and y’all. The hype is worth it! This was beautiful and five gorgeous ⭐! I highly recommend it especially for the Halloween season!

Then a few Netgalley books were read, a really cute graphic novel that I gave five stars to, and also a short story by Madeline Miller that I sadly gave two point five stars. I’m not going to be reading Circe or Song of Achilles any time soon. Sorry!


Current Reads:

I started a few things that aren’t on my kindle because I’m trying to power through and get them finished before the end of the year. Here’s what I’m working on:

Tigana is one that I’m eager for. Next year I plan on catching up with all of Guy Gavrial Kay and I have heard so many good things about his books.

Mask of Mirrors I have book two as a Netgalley Arc so I want to crush both of them this month. Considering their epic page count? I hope to be successful.

The Cloud Roads is by a top ten favorite author of mine. As I’ve caught up with Murderbot aside from the last book, I’m going to her fantasy series next!

The City We Became is a NK Jemesin masterpiece…or so trusted friends have said. I’m leery but excited at the same time.


Next Up:

I have a stack waiting for after I finish the ones above. These are shorter so hopefully I can finish them faster!

And that’s what I’ve been working on! What are you currently reading? Let me know in the comments!

Until next time,

Netgalley November 2022 TBR: Random, Popular, and Overdue Books

Hello Everyone,

I’m participating in Netgalley November, and I have a vague tbr in mind. I’m not doing the photos and challenges and all that, I’m just reading and plowing through as many arcs as I can, whilst uploading my reviews too. I’m two books in already so that’s a good start!

My dream is to get my feedback ratio from 14% to 45%. I’m crossing my fingers and hoping that I can see those numbers steadily rise (apart from those I’ve been approved for lol). I’d really love getting back to 80% but unless I work hard on it, it’s not going to happen. So. This month I’m working on making it my goal to read, read, read. No social media. No games. I’m holding myself accountable and I will get this goal met. Or die trying. Too dramatic? Maybe but I’m tired of those numbers staring at me in the face.

Just Finished Reading:

I finished this yesterday. In that I dnf’d because I was not by 40% of the book. RTC soon. (Also sorry about the cover size that’s the only one I could find!)

I’m about ten percent of the way through this. It’s starting off strong and most books published by Angry Robot I adore so why I haven’t read this yet I don’t know. Plus this cover feels just right with snow just around the corner! Inspired by Slavic Folklore? Yes please, sign me up!


My TBR:

These are the ten I hope to get to read this coming week. I’m hoping for a book a day, maybe two if I’m lucky. I’ve tried picking ones I’m truly interested in and hopefully I will manage to make a dent in my large tbr.

Until next time,

November 2022 TBR: Assorted Books I Meant to Read For the Year

Hello Everyone,

I’m a little late posting this, but here I am still close enough to the start of the month to count! I have a hefty batch of books that I’d like to get to, but we’ll see how it goes! Anyway. Here’s my ambitious as usual list!

80 is ambitious. Hugely ambitious but I’m nothing if not optimistic and bored, lol. Are any of these books that I should prioritize? Let me know in the comments!

October 2022 TBR: Ambitious And Atmospheric Reads

Hello Everyone,

I’m skipping the September wrap up and I also am skipping the week long readathon. Blogging lately has been a challenge and I apologize for missing posts. I have a few ideas saved but I’m just not in the blogging mood. Instead I have great news.

MY READING SLUMP IS GONE!!!!!!

Now I’m cautious about my tbr for October. I’m heavily a mood reader at this point and I’m attempting to knock out books that have been on my tbr backlist for ages. I have split things into categories and I hope it makes this post easier to read.

Spooky Vibes:

Horror Reads:

Most Likely To Read:

Backlist Hopefuls:

Extras I Might Get To:


Those are all my hopefuls with a few I’m definitely getting to this month! Its currently October 9th and I have only read 4 books (my lowest amount for a while) and I’m hoping today that I can cram in a few more books. I have a large amount that I very much want to get to, as usual. I hope everyone has an enjoyable reading month and happy holidays!

Until next time,

Day 1 of 7: Week Long Reading 24/7 Challenge

Hello Everyone,

It is currently 8:28 am and I’m up, I’m dressed, and making myself a cup of tea. I’ve handled a few needed things (feed cats, get bkfast), and I have a few books that I’m going to start reading. I’m not documenting this beyond checking in via posting. Anyway, here’s what I hope to read today:

I posted about this yesterday and I’m very excited to dive into this intriguing and beautiful book!

This is an old historical romance that I’ve had forever and a day. Mass market paperbacks usually go quick for me so this should be a breeze.

And a brand new release. I have this out from the library so I definitely need to read it!


And that’s what I hope to read today. Later tonight I’ll check in at ten and showcase what all I read. I’m hoping to get more than three books done but we’ll see.

Until next time,

September TBR 2022: A Month of Reading All the Things!

Hello Everyone,

This month is the month of strict reading! No computer except for reviewing only! No tv. I’m behind on my Goodreads goal by 60 books. I’m hoping to seriously catch up. I have read one short ebook this far (five stars!) and hope to get more reading on tonight. Here’s my excessive tbr that I hope to stick with:

These are my kindle books that I’ve chosen to work on. I’m hoping to cram as many as I can into this month. I’m also hoping to post more reviews on my blog as I go.


For my physical books, I’ll be focusing on my my massive nightstand collection and thinning it down as much as I can.

The First Binding is massive and will take a chunk of my time. I hope to get to it soon. I’m also prioritizing Juniper and Thorn as I have an arc for that on Netgalley (oops!), a few others are on my stack and I shall have a bunch more added for my September tbr. I’m hoping to get back into reading and not be so busy this month!

And these are my other hopefuls! I really want to read Master of Sorrows and The Diamond Eye as I hope to get to more Kate Quinn. Her writing is excellent. I’m also behind on reading things like Priory of the Orange Tree, Gideon, and Cinderella is Dead.

I know I’m not getting to all these. Not hardly. My goal is to read at least 40 of them, but I rather doubt it. I’ve been ina bit of a slump. I hope to seriously avoid the slump and catch up with my Goodreads goal this month. How’s your tbr looking? Let me know in the comments if you’ve read any of these.

Until next time,

Currently Reading Updates: Been a Bit Since I Posted!

Hello Everyone,

I know, I know. I dropped off the face of the earth, but I’m currently on my way to NYC!!! 🥰 An early birthday present to me! But as I’m traveling I’m also reading. Here’s what I’ve read recently and what I’m currently reading:

What I’ve Read:

I’ve been reading a lot of smut and romance because it’s easy and quick. However I also finally read a Kate Quinn piece and gave it 5 ⭐. It was so good!!! I read Goliath by Tochi Onyebuchi and gave it 5 ⭐ too. There’s a few that I haven’t shared. It’s just a lot of things to add.

Currently Reading:

First let’s get the romances out of the way…

Rescuing Rayne by Susan Stoker

Three Weeks to Wed by Ella Quinn

Tempt Me With Diamonds by Jane Feather

Secrets of a Summer Night by Lisa Kleypas

Now for the fantasy books:

I’m rereading Way of Kings to prep for book two. I’m enjoying it again and I am only 200 pages in.

Other books I’m reading:

And I hope to finish these by the end of the trip. I doubt that I’m going to finish Way of Kings, but the others are mostly romances so I should fly right through them. After these are done, I’m going to start earnestly making a dent in my tbr of books that I’ve put off reading. But until then…

Until next time,

August 2022 TBR: Goals, Plans, and Hope To Beat the Reading Slump!

Hello Everyone,

I’m posting this early, I know, but I am crossing my fingers that next month is going to be a huge reading month for me! I have so many books that I have put off reading that I’m going to read these. I just have a few plans in place.


My Plans:

Basically read, lol. I’m going to try to read two books a day of I can, and hope life doesn’t get in the way again.

Limited computer + phone. Now, I do use ebooks on my phone so that’s an exception. And I’m posting from my phone to my blog so another exception. Otherwise, nope.

Read my tbr, STICK to my tbr. Often I’m a mood reader but I’m going to see if I can actually stick with a tbr and see if that helps!


My TBR:

All of these have been on my tbr at least once or twice, however Iron Widow + The Traitor Baru Cormorant are rereads in preparation for the the sequels as I plan on catch up on finishing series that I’ve started.


Now if I read all those and somehow stick with my planned tbr, here’s another set that I hope to get through!

These are high on my wishlist but I don’t think I’ll be able to get a few of them as some are brand new. I’m really hoping to make good headway into my reading for this coming month. Let me know what all your tbrs look like and if there’s any recs you want to share based on my tbr. I hope everyone has an enjoyable reading month ahead!

Until next time,

July TBR 2022: A Hefty Batch of New and Old Titles

Hello Everyone,

I’m feeling ambitious as usual but I figured out how to lock my computer so I can get off that and read more, mwahaha. As I don’t watch tv, I’m setting a challenge to read 50 books (again) and I’m determined to actually do it this time! Last time I managed exactly half. This time I’m aiming for a successful month to read all I can. Big or small, I’m eager to get through this hefty tbr! Let’s get to it shall we?

I know, I know. Many of you are probably screaming at me that I haven’t read any of these. I’ve put them off and put them off. Well no more! This isn’t the whole pile, fyi. I’ve a crapton of Kindle books I hope to get to also. And a few of these have been on my tbr again and again. I hope this is the last time, I really do.

My plan:

  • Three books a day unless it’s over 500+ pages
  • Write those reviews as soon as I finish reading
  • If I can’t stand the book, dnf at 100 pages
  • Read at least three hours a day (I’m a fast reader)
  • No computer, no tv until I finish a book, with exception of the news at nine pm as I catch the weather there.
  • If I successfully do this I earn an expensive $50 book of my choosing as a reward!

And that’s my goal for the month of July. It’s already July fifth and I’m currently reading Kaikeyi and loving it. It’s well over 500+ pages so it is a bit dense and taking me a bit to get through. Plus I had to pause for a family get together though we weren’t celebrating much in all honesty we were just talking about the future and enjoying good food. So. Fingers crossed that this works.

Are y’all reading anything this month that’s on my list? Let me know! I’d love to chat about it with you!

Until next time,
