Top 5 Tuesday – Top 5 Books That Changed My Life

Hello everyone! Welcome back for another Top 5 Tuesday! The prompt for today is the top 5 books that changed my life. This was a really hard one for me this week. Each of these has changed my life in different ways, and it was weird to sit and think about how much they have each impacted my life.

Mid-Month NetGalley Check-In – January 2022

It has been a very busy couple months since the last time I did a NetGalley check-in. I’ve been approved for a ton of new books, and these next few months are going to be filled with ARC reading as a result. You can see where I was two months ago in my last check-in post. My feedback ratio has dropped a bit more since then to 60%. I’ve completed 28 ARC reviews out of the total 47 for which I have been approved. I now have 18 unread books available to read on my shelf, which is the most I’ve ever had at one time. The reviews I completed in the last two months were Forging a Nightmare, Jade Legacy, Tethered Spirits, Daughter of the Moon Goddess, The Beholden, and Engines of Empire.

TBR: January 2022

Hello, everyone! It is the start of another month, which means it is time again to plan out what I want to read. I’m not participating in any readathons this month. So, I’m mostly picking these books based on what ARCs need to be reviewed and what books I’m in the mood to read.

In total, I want to read at least 10 books in January 2022 to start the year off strong. I have several ARCs to get through this month, and there are a couple new/recent releases I really want to get to, as well. I’m also going to be reading The Fifth Season by N. K. Jemisin along with other members of The Oasis Discord channel. I’ve already finished one book this month, Of Darkness and Light by Ryan Cahill, that I started prior to the end of last year. Since I’m already done with it, I’m not including it in my goal of 10 books.

My Favorite 2021 Reads

Hello, everyone! Today’s post highlights some of my favorite reads of 2021. It was so hard to pick my favorites because I’ve read so many great books this year. I decided to do something a bit different to highlight a wider range of books that I enjoyed. So, I’ve split my top 10 in two with half including books published in 2021 and half with books published prior to this year. I’ve also listed my top four 4-star and top three 3-star reads to highlight some of my favorite reads that didn’t quite reach 5-star status.

Hello, everyone! As I’m sure you’ve figured out by now if you’ve been following my blog, I love Star Wars.
