October Wrap Up!

Good evening, friends! I’m back to discuss all the lovely books I was able to read in the month of October, and it was A LOT! I’m so surprised I read this many because it didn’t even feel like a good reading month for me! But I read a total of 19 books – eARC and physical books combined! I did not get to all the eARC’s or physical books I initially had on my October TBR, but I enjoy the fact that I get to mood read. I re-assessed my strategy for conquering all my Netgalley eARC’s and I’m very pleased with it.

PHYSICAL BOOKS

  1. The Girl the Sea Gave Back – Adrienne Young – 4/5 stars
  2. The Wren Hunt – Mary Watson – 3/5 stars
  3. Stealing Home – Becky Wallace – 4/5 stars
  4. Alex, Approximately – Jenn Bennett – 4/5 stars
  5. The Unhoneymooners – Christina Lauren – 5/5 stars
  6. Passengers – Alexandra Bracken – 4.5/5 stars

EBOOKS

  1. The Throne of the Five Winds – S. C. Emmett – 3/5 stars
  2. A Midnight Clear – Sam Hooker, et al. – 3/5 stars
  3. Coral – Sara Ella – 3.75/5 stars
  4. A Violet Fire – Kelsey Quick – 4/5 stars
  5. Safe Harbour – Christina Kilbourne – 3/5 stars
  6. All That’s Bright and Gone – Eliza Nellums – 4.25/5 stars
  7. Good Girls Lie – J. T. Ellison – 4.25/5 stars
  8. Hearts, Strings, and Other Breakable Things – Jacqueline Firkins – 4/5 stars
  9. Don’t Read the Comments – Eric Smith – 4/5 stars
  10. The Perfect Catch – Maggie Dallen – 4/5 stars
  11. The Perfect Match – Maggie Dallen – 4/5 stars
  12. The Perfect Score – Maggie Dallen – 4/5 stars
  13. The Weaver – Heather Kindt – 4/5 stars

I was able to balance more physical books with the ebooks this month, which was really my goal. I was getting sad not being able to work through some books on my TBR cart, so I have a much better plan of attack now. I look forward to a more balanced reading goal next month!

How many books were you able to read this month?

Happy reading, bookish friends! 🙂

September Wrap Up!

I definitely did not get to all the books I planned to this month, but I’m okay with that. I signed up for soooo many Netgalley ARC’s that I feel buried underneath them, so I took some time off reading and read some things that I’ve just been meaning to for awhile. I still have plenty of time to get my ARC’s read before they’re released, so it will all be okay 🙂

  1. Sorcery of Thorns – Margaret Rogerson – 5/5 stars
  2. The Kingdom – Jess Rothenberg – 4/5 stars
  3. The Crowns of Croswald – D. E. Night – 4/5 stars

August Wrap Up!

Happy last day of August! Where oh where did this month go? I feel like I was just typing July’s Wrap Up post yesterday! This month I got a good deal of reading done, including every single book that was on my TBR for August! I don’t think that has happened since I started keeping track, so I’m very impressed and happy with myself!

PHYSICAL BOOKS

So I definitely read a lot fewer physical books because I wanted to really crack down on my Netgalley TBR. I really missed reading physicals books though, so September will at least be more balanced between physical and ebooks, if not more.

  1. Strange the Dreamer (Strange the Dreamer #1) – Laini Taylor – 5/5 stars
  2. A Curse So Dark and Lonely (Cursebreakers #1) – Brigid Kemmerer – 5/5 stars
  3. Ignite the Stars (Ignite the Stars #1) – Maura Milan – 5/5 stars
  4. Fix Her Up (Hot & Hammered #1) – Tessa Bailey – 5/5 stars

EBOOKS

I managed to get my Netgalley ratio up to 50% this month by reading a bunch of the eARC’s! It would have been higher but I was also approved for more during the month 🙂

  1. Midnight Beauties (Grim Lovelies #2) – Megan Shepherd – 4/5 stars
  2. The Murder List – Hank Phillippi Ryan – 5/5 stars
  3. Eclipse the Skies (Ignite the Stars #2) – Maura Milan – 4/5 stars
  4. Realm of Knights (Knights of the Realm #1) – Jennifer Anne Davis – 4/5 stars
  5. The Weight of a Soul – Elizabeth Tammi – 4/5 stars
  6. Crown of Coral and Pearl (Crown of Coral and Pearl #1) – Mara Rutherford – 5/5 stars
  7. Tweet Cute – Emma Lord – 5/5 stars
  8. The Lady Rogue – Jenn Bennett – 3/5 stars

As you can see I managed to get a lot of really good reading done, of which I am super happy for. I’m also looking forward to what the next month will bring!

Come talk with me about your wrap up!

Happy reading, bookish friends 🙂
