July TBR!

If you read yesterday’s post you know that I didn’t do so well with structured reading in June. I’ve been having some rough mental health days and took a step back from reading. For July, I’d like to get back into it because reading always makes me feel better. Also, I’m going on a week vacation so I’m sure I’ll be able to do lots of reading!

For July, I’m taking part in #fournationsreadathon, an Avatar the Last Airbender themed readathon! I’m going to read in honor of the Water Nation, so some of my planned books will be going towards that readathon, and that will be denoted in the list. If you’re interested – visit instagram @fournationsreadation.

What are you reading this month?

Happy reading, folks!

June TBR!

Happy (or frankly, not so happy as the protests continue) June! I am filled with hope for this month. I hope for freedoms to be given and change to be in the air. I hope for lives to be spared and differences to be made for POC across the world. In less serious terms, I also hope I read another ridiculously large stack of books.

For this month, I have planned 22 books to be read. This is indeed fewer than I read last month for those of you who are playing along at home. However, I feel like last month was largely a fluke and won’t be replicated for another hundred years. So, I will continue to prioritize my Netgalley list and continue working on getting those numbers down. I’m currently at ~87% ratio, and have many books planned for this month!

May TBR!

Happy May!! Yesterday, I scheduled a time to go donate blood plasma in Delaware to help those sick with COVID-19 since I am already recovered! I’m not necessarily looking forward to it, but at least I know I will be helping people!

My May TBR is going to look a little different than normal, I’m trying something new out! I will only be planning my ebook and eARC reads because I had such a hard time getting into physical books last month. So instead of stressing myself, I will plan my library and Netgalley books and just leisurely read physical books without the pressure to read all of them! It’s just a test for this month, so we’ll see how this goes in like 31 days!

April TBR!

Happy April folks! I wish I could say this month would be better than March, but I’m not sure that’s going to be true… So I’m hoping to get a lot done this month in order to help ignore the fact that life is so different than usual! I started spring cleaning my house this past weekend, and I’m working on adding housework to my daily routine so it can stay that way. I also want to get a bunch of wedding planning done this month, even though we can’t have in person meetings. Those are just a few of my goals for this month, non reading wise.

In terms of reading goals, I planned to read an astronomical amount of books again this month, that I likely won’t follow because of who I am as a person!! But, it makes me happy to aim high (I know that’s backwards). I like striving towards higher goals. So, see below for the books I hope to read in April.
