I know I keep saying that this ridiculous run I'm on with my reading challenge is going to end soon but this month has been another scarily awesome month for books. Not only did I read the eight books I've been averaging a month so far this year but I actually ended up reading….13? Granted… Continue reading Memo Pad: April Wrap-up
The last two weeks I've been talking part in an amazing readathon hosted by Kitty. Her blog post about the readathon is here but it's mostly been hosted over on Twitter under the @AspecApril. There are lots of discussions over there and also author interviews over on her blog. The readathon spanned two weeks, the… Continue reading Aspec April Readathon Wrap Up
I'm late with my monthly wrap up. Oops. It's April already. Luckily I am currently still a European citizen so things could have gone worse (although there's still time!). I read a lot of books in March which is the main reason this post is late. While I haven't found it difficult to fit reading… Continue reading Memo Pad: March Wrap Up
Or the one in which Liz from Travel in Retrospect called me out by tagging me. The tag was originally created by Booksnest. And I have way too many books I should have read by now so feel like maybe they made it with me in mind! Rules: Thank the person who tagged you and… Continue reading I should have read that Book Tag
Somehow I'm keeping up the amazing reading record I started last month. I thought reading 7 books in one month was a one off but I've actually bested it this month, even though it was shorter! I could say this had something to do with the fact I went on holiday for a week and… Continue reading Memo Pad: February Wrap up
I'm back from my holidays, which were lovely and warm (I'm so sad I'm back in the cold), I read some great books but today I'm going to talk about a bunch of my favourite books that are criminally underrated. Top Ten Tuesdays is a book meme currently hosted by The Artsy Reader Girl. It… Continue reading Top 10 Tuesdays: Underrated books I loved
I've had an excellent start to my reading year this month. I finished a whole 6 books and that's only because I made myself stop reading towards the end of the month so I wouldn't have too many reviews to write! Four of them were five star reads although towards the end of the month… Continue reading Memo Pad: January Wrap up
There are SO MANY amazing books coming out this year (my goodreads shelf has 82 books that sound amazing) but I managed to narrow it down to a top 37. This list has a mix of YA & Adult books, the majority of which are queer and it features a mic of genres. Something for everyone!
So 68 books read. An average rating of 4.1 stars, 23 of which were 5 star reads. All this means that my Best Books of the Year list was even harder to narrow down than usual but I did it. Here are my favourites of the year....
I kind of hate resolutions. Especially the ones that say to do something different. New year new you. Those never work for me but I do like seeing goals. Things I want to achieve which are normally a continuation of what I'm already doing. I guess my biggest struggle is to keep doing things not start (anyone who knows me know I start too many things!!). And goals help to keep me motivated and not give in.
