🎵 Girls, Girls, Girls 🎵: All the Girls That Are On My TBR

Hello Everyone,

I have a lot of books on my tbr and I thought that I’d do a fun thing of “books with girls in the title”. This isn’t by all means all of them. It’s just a handful of them I thought I’d share. I’m not going to tag any descriptions for now as that would take ages. But here’s the books with “girls” in the title:

I have a few that I’m eager to get to and some that have been on my tbr for ages (Wilder Girls was an arc oops) and I know there’s loads more to find with ‘girls’ in the title. Do you recognize any of these? Let me know in the comments.

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,

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,

April Mid-month Check In: 20 Books Read(!)

Hello Everyone,

As I’ve begun increasing my read tbr by the month I decided I needed to get to do mid month wrap ups. I’m trying hard to keep up my reading pace, but also not forcing myself into a slump by not wanting to read. Thanks to the holiday weekend, I’ve managed to read a bit more than usual and I’m surprisingly keeping the slump back by reading small things here and there. I’ve managed 20 books! And it’s only mid April! I’ve read a lot of really good books this month. A handful I want to buy they were that good! Let’s dive in shall we?

Look at me, reading huge 900+ page books! I’m going to hopefully manage to get another big batch of books before the end of the month. I couldn’t get images for every book I read, unfortunately. But I did get the biggest ones.

My favorite books of the month? You’ve Lost a Lot of Blood, These Silent Woods, and Traitors Blade.

My least favorite books? The Best of All Possible Worlds, Hunting Game, and The Circus Infinite.

Biggest Book Read? Shadowmarch by Tad Williams 900 pages

Smallest Book Read: You’ve Lost a Lot of Blood

Discussion: Quitting Social Media For a Month(!)

Hello Everyone,

Lately it feels like I’ve not been reading as much as I have been. And my blog (not to mention Netgalley) is suffering from it. I’ve been on YouTube, Twitter, Instagram-doing everything BUT reading and it shows. I barely managed to read 22 books and at least eight of them I dnf’d!

This brings me to my idea. A month where I put my phone down and read. I don’t really watch a lot of tv-mostly just YouTube. I’m going to avoid all that, and ignore my laptop too. At the end of each week, I can have my laptop for a day. But my phone stays on my bookshelf to be ignored.

My goal is to read 50 books in a month. Normally I average about 20. I really want to double that number at the very least. Starting tomorrow at the beginning of March, bye-bye social media. My exceptions for my phone? Phone calls from family, checking on my buddy reads on Twitter (briefly!) and using my laptop to write a review when I finish reading the book. That’s it.

That means no games. No YouTube. No Twitter. I have Hoopla on my phone and I will read the books that I have on it. Otherwise? I’m to avoid my phone 24/7.

Then, when April rolls around (how can April be here already?!?) I take a look at my stats and see how I did. If I reach my goal…well, I’m still thinking about rewards. Ideas would be welcomed.

Hopefully this whole plan works. Otherwise I’m going to scream into the abyss lol.

So. I’ll be posting more reviews. And that’s about all I’m allowed. (And WWW Wednesday of course.) Otherwise. I’m going quiet y’all. Wish me luck! 🤞

Until next time,

March 2022 TBR: Can I Read 50 Books In A Month?

Hello Everyone,

So I’ve got a big goal for March. I’m already behind on my Goodreads tbr goal. Not badly, maybe 15 books behind schedule. But this month? I’m issuing a challenge to myself to read 50 books. What books might those be? Well, the last tbr is still on my “must reads” but I have other new ones added. Sit back, relax, and prepare for scrolling through my stack of books!

Such an ambitious pile, as always but I think that this is my biggest yet! (I could be wrong lol.) I’m definitely looking forward to The Poppy War, Vita Nostra, Light From Uncommon Stars, and Brandon Sanderson Way of Kings. Many of these look so good! Tell me which ones you think I should prioritize because I could definitely use the help! 😆

I hope everyone else has a great month in March. Stay safe out there everyone!

Until next time,

WWW Wednesday: What’s New, What’s Old, What’s Read

Hello Everyone,

I skipped last week’s www because I hadn’t read but one book and I was in a hefty slump. Cue after that me picking up all the books and reading a lot over last week and actually posting reviews too! I know, right, who am I? Anyway. Let’s dive in shall we?

What did I finish reading?

I read so many good things last week! It’s nice to actually see more than just one or two finished books! My top favorites are The Border Keeper and Across the Green Grass Fields. My least favorite and perhaps biggest disappoinment tied between Moon of the Crusted Snow and Avalon. I was most surprised by Kanada which had me sobbing my eyes out but it was so beautifully written! The Cat and the Monk is an award winner and has such a lovely artwork and story in it. Overall a successful reading week!

What am I currently reading?:

I have all these as my physical books, and I am finally starting Children of Time which is easily 600+ pages. Hopefully it’ll be a fast read! I also have these on my kindle that I’m fixing to read too:

A buddy read, a couple arcs and a library loan on my kindle. I’m hoping to get through these as well as the others this next week too.

What will I be reading next?

These are my potential next reads. Nothing firm, just a few ideas that I have in mind for upcoming reviews. I’ve wanted to read Vita Nostra for forever and a day. Same for the others here. I hope everyone else is having a good reading week!

Until next time,

WWW Wednesday: Another 4 Books Read

Hello Everyone,

Last week I managed four books. I had a bit of a reading slump but also I just haven’t felt like reading. My Goodreads goal says that I’m five books behind schedule. Yikes! 😳

I hope to get some reading done today, and then there’s lots of time this weekend too. I should easily get caught up to schedule. Anyways, here’s what I have managed to read.

What have I finished reading?:

Z for Zachariah is a beloved reread, and I also learned it was a movie from Sundance. The movie did an admirable job but I still like the book better. 5/5 ⭐❤️

The Marsh Queen was a Netgalley arc, RTC to come but I wound up dnf’ing it. Beautiful writing but I was still so bored by the 50% and just decided to call it quits. 2/5 ⭐

The Ocean Was Our Sky was in relation to Moby Dick. I wanted to like it but I just had no connection to this at all. Moby Dick is a great classic and this tried but failed to capture me. I dnf’d. Beautiful artwork though! 2.5/5 ⭐

And finally. The graphic novel The Best We Could Do. I wanted to love this so much. But it started with a detailed woman giving birth and a c section was involved and it just was not what I was expecting at all. I generally don’t mind pregnancies that get complicated but I SO wasn’t in the mood for such. Gorgeous, stunning artwork. But I’m setting this aside for later. So technically not a dnf, just… not reading this now.

What am I currently reading?:

Ugh, technically nothing. I haven’t picked up a book in about four days now. But here’s where I am in my current reads. I’ll be so glad when I finally finish Jade City!

I’m setting aside Jade City. My buddy had to return her copy to the library and we got to about 200 pages. So temporarily on hold.

Then I’m also in the middle of this beast of a book:

This is almost eight hundred pages!

I’m about one hundred pages. There’s a lot to process here. It’s good writing and I’m enjoying it so far. But I’m pausing on this so that I can focus on something that’s not so hefty and I can think about this book for a while. (I still just LOVE that cover!)

Now these are what I am thinking about-for no particular reason-reading tonight:

I’m leaning most towards the Circus Rose because it’s a novel in verse. That should go by fast. And I also really really really want to read The City of Brass. I’ve put it off so long. I also want to read Red Rising to get caught up on the series but that’s a maybe. The rest are also maybes.

What am I thinking of reading next?:

Well I’ve still got Jade City and Glory Season, obviously. But there’s also these that I’m eyeing that I’ve put off for a couple years:

I’m serious about tackling my backlog. If only these stupid reading slumps would leave me alone lol. I’m hoping these will help against my reading slump. I’ve requested them from the library, now I’m just waiting for them to show up. But those are my current reading plans. Hopefully by next week I’ll be ahead on my Goodreads goal!

Until next time,

WWW Wednesday: I read 11 Books for the Start of 2022

Hello everyone,

It’s my first WWW Wednesday of this year! I’m happy to report that my reading has been going amazingly well! So many great books and already two that I think are the best books I’ve read yet! Let’s dive right into it shall we?

What did I finish reading?

This was a dnf at forty percent. I tried but I just wasn’t hooked as much as I’d hoped to be! 3 ⭐
5 ⭐! Glorious! Awe inspiring perfection! This is so far my most favorite read of the year!!! ❤️ ❤️ ❤️
I hadn’t realized this was a kids book but it had a good message and lovely artwork. 5 ⭐
5 ⭐!!! Such a cool concept and such tension! 💜
This was okay. I may need a reread to fully think my rating over. 3 ⭐
2 ⭐. Dnf. The pacing for this was weak and I didn’t much like the characters. Interesting concept for the bad guy though. Not terrible writing but definitely needs an editor. Kindle freebie I got years ago and read on a whim.
5 ⭐! This was way better than I thought it would be! I adore Scottish mysteries though the ending felt abrupt this was still quite fun!

~•~•~•~•~

What am I currently reading?

Not a lot at the moment. I still have my Jade City buddy read going. I’m at page 82 and nowhere close to halfway lol. I also have these I’m reading:

What am I reading next?

I honestly have no idea. I’m trying to get books that have been on my tbr a while, even as I mix it with new releases to keep things fresh. Aside from Jade City, I’m mood reading right now before I start seriously tackling my enormous arc pile on Netgalley! February is going to be the start of my #ArcApocalypse again I think. Still feeling things out as I don’t want to have as many slumps as I did last year. This year I plan on doing things a bit different. WWW Wednesday once a month, maybe. And more book reviews. I’m still organizing. I also got a new phone so I have been transferring everything too which is fun…so many things to do! I hope everyone has been reading well at the start of the new year.
