November TBR (A Buddy TBR)

Hyello, babushkas! How’s it going?

So I’ve been struggling with picking up a book and actually sticking to it for months now. I have so many books on hold just because I started reading them, got 100 pages in and then decided I’m not in the mood for them anymore. It’s very annoying. I’ve tried doing small TBRs but of course that never worked out because I can never stick to TBRs too.

But this time it’s different. I think. I hope. Louisa @thereadingsloth_ and I came up with this brilliant idea of a buddy TBR. We’re both tired of reading only fantasy (for me) and trashy contemporaries (for her) so we wanted to make this TBR diverse when it comes to genres. So we decided we want these 11 different genres and we picked one young adult book for each and every genre.

Why is this TBR different from what I’ve done in the past? Well, there are rules. Of course we both won’t get to all 11 books. But if we for example read Stalking Jack the Ripper instead of Jackaby (aka our pick for this TBR) and they’re both historical fiction, we have to buy the other something (note: we’re both lowkey broke and have to be careful with how we’re spending our money so I’m pretty positive this will actually work lol). That doesn’t mean we can’t read other books in historical fiction if we’re in the mood for it; we can read it AFTER we read Jackaby (we can only do that once, though. We still have to read other books on this TBR hehe).

This made so much more sense in our heads lol.

So without further ado, here’s my and Louisa’s TBR for November:

My Bookstagram Feed #2 (February -March Theme + some photos that were meant to be posted but weren’t)

I have a Bookstagram if you didn’t know. But Instagram likes to mess with the quality of my pictures. It basically RUINS THEM AND I CRY AFTERWARDS. So I thought why not post one of my themes on here so you peeps can see them in much better quality. So without further ado, here is my theme I had from February until March, plus some photos I never posted in their full glory. Note: it’s better if you look at these photos on your phone.

Disney Readathon TBR

Louisa @booksandteagirl101, Serena @theradiantreader, Fleur @feline.reader, Anna @libraryofmylife and I spontaneously decided to host a READATHON! And it’s DISNEY INSPIRED *excited dance* I had so much fun organising this readathon with my friends and we’d all be so happy if you joined us!

The rules are quite simple; it starts on July 18th at midnight (in your timezone) and ends on July 25th at midnight (again, in your timezone). You can overlap challenges if you want (for example; you can read a book that has a colorful cover and also takes place in summertime). When talking about Disney Readathon, Please use #disneyreadathon2018 if you’re on bookstagram so we can see your posts and share them in our stories and talk about your progress and such.

Each host also has a host pick for “the 7th challenge” so make sure you check others’ bookstagram posts out to see what their pick is and if it’s something you’ve been meaning to read and this is just a perfect excuse to finally read it. Of course, reading a host pick is not required, it’s just for fun. The whole readathon is Fun with a capital F. Anyways, my host pick is *drum roll* BRING ME THEIR HEARTS by Sara Wolf. So if you’re interested in that book, you can read it with me and we can have a lil book club together.

If you have any questions, please don’t hestitate to ask either me or any of the other hosts. I hope you guys will join us; the more the merrier!

I’m a bit late to this party (5 months late, to be exact) but better late than never? I always forgot which books I’m really excited for are coming out this year so writing this post will hopefully help me remember lol. Some of the books on this list are a part of a series I haven’t even started yet oops but they’re still my most anticipated reads because I just know I’m gonna love the first book(/s) and I know I’ll want the next books asap. I’m sure I forgot a few books because again, I can’t remember them lol but without further ado, here are my most anticipated 2018 releases:

Down The TBR Hole [#2]

Hi!

Most of you probably know this feeling, your Goodreads TBR pile keeps growing and growing and it seems like there is no light at the end of the tunnel. You keep adding, but you add more than you actually read. And then when you’re scrolling through your list, you realize that you have no idea what half the books are about and why you added them. Well that’s going to change! Down the TBR hole was created by Lia at Lost in a Story and the goal of this meme is to organize your TBR pile and get rid of books you no longer have any interest in reading.

THE RULES:

  1. Go to your Goodreads To-Read shelf.
  2. Order on ascending date added.
  3. Take the first 5 (or 10 if you’re feeling adventurous) books
  4. Read the synopses of the books
  5. Decide: keep it or should it go?
  6. Repeat every week until the entire list has been filtered.
