Top 5 Tuesday – Top 5 Books I Meant to Read in 2022

Hello, everyone! I’m actually participating in Top 5 Tuesday for TWO WEEKS IN A ROW. This is quite the accomplishment for my lazy self. lol. Meeghan is coming out of the gate swinging this month with the brutal topic first. I guess it is best to rip the bandaid off quick so we can move on to more happy year-end topics. 🙂 This week’s topic is top 5 books I meant to read in 2022. The actual answer is probably ALL OF THEM (or close to it), but I was able to pick out 5 that I’m disappointed the most about punting to 2023. Stay tuned after these five letdowns for a special treat that will hopefully lighten the mood! Top 5 Tuesday was created by Shanah @ Bionic Book Worm, and is now being hosted at Meeghan Reads!

Top 5 Tuesday – Top 5 Books with Swords

Hello, everyone! I’m really horrible at keeping up with this meme even though I always love participating. This week’s prompt was a freebie. So, I chose to dig through the topics I missed and do one of those. I never did any of the scavenger hunt prompts, and it seemed like fun. Therefore, this week’s topic is top 5 books with swords. I chose this particular scavenger hunt because it seemed doable given how much fantasy I read, but it was actually harder than I thought because many of the books that first came to mind didn’t actually have a sword on the cover. I got to five in the end, though, and they were all 4 or 5 star reads for me. Top 5 Tuesday was created by Shanah @ Bionic Book Worm, and is now being hosted at Meeghan Reads!

Monthly TBR – November 2022

Hello, everyone! Today I’m sharing my hopefuls for the month of November. I’ve got quite a few ARCs of books releasing this month, and I’m also going to try to catch up on some overdue ARCs from the last couple months that I didn’t get to read yet. I also plan to work on some of my larger 2022 goals by continuing a couple of series I want to finish before the end of the year. I can’t believe 2022 will already be over next month. This year has just flown by. I’m sure there will be some mood reading as well, and at some point I need to fit in my BBNYA finalists… The list goes on and on, but I’ll consider it a successful month if I can manage to make it through these 10 books:

Top 5 Tuesday – Top 5 Anticipated Reads for Oct-Dec 2022

Hello everyone! It’s been way too long since I’ve participated in Top 5 Tuesday. What can I say? I’ve been super lazy when it comes to blog posts that aren’t reviews or wrap-ups. I’m still feeling lazy, but this is a pretty easy topic. So, I thought I’d hop on board for at least this week with my top 5 anticipated reads for this last quarter of 2022. Strangely enough, the first two actually released TODAY, and I’ll be making a trip to B&N to snatch them up. 🙂 Top 5 Tuesday was created by Shanah @ Bionic Book Worm, and is now being hosted at Meeghan Reads!

Monthly TBR – October 2022

Hello, everyone! I don’t have very many ARCs this month. So, I’m going to try to catch up on the ones where I missed the release date and then get a head start on some of November’s releases. I’ll also be doing a bit of mood reading beyond these selections. I just got a ton of new audiobooks from the Audible sale last month, and I’m dying to get to some of them. I’ve also got some library books that aren’t listed here. So, stay tuned to see what they are when I get to them over the next couple weeks. 🙂 I hope you all have a great month and are enjoying the start of spooky season!

Monthly TBR – September 2022

Hello, everyone! This is going to be another busy month. I’ve got lots of ARCs to read, including some I didn’t get to last month, and I’m participating in a read-a-long for the first time. I decided to skip participating in this month’s Mythothon round because I’m a bit burnt out on readathons after the two I did last month. I will (hopefully) be posting a wrap-up for them tomorrow, and I’m excited to say I did really well in both of them. I’m hoping to keep the momentum going through September because I have a lot of great stuff to read, and this TBR barely scratches the surface…

Monthly TBR – August 2022

This is going to be a REALLY busy month! There are so many book releases happening, and I have so many ARCs to get through. On top of that, I’ve decided to participate in two readathons this month. I’m beginning to think I just like torturing myself with stress. It has been a couple of months since I’ve had a super structured TBR. So, I’m not sure how this is going to go after doing so much mood reading in June and July.

Mid-Month NetGalley Check-In – July 2022

I’ve fallen a bit behind this month because of all the library books I’ve been reading… I only reviewed three NetGalley books this month, and I’ve been approved for five new books. You can see where I was last month in my most recent check-in post. My feedback ratio dipped one percent to 71%, which means it is moving in the WRONG direction. lol. I’ve completed 65 ARC reviews out of the total 91 for which I have been approved. I now have 26 books available to review on my shelf, which is a slight increase from where I was this time last month. This next month and a half is super daunting because almost half of the books on my NetGalley shelf will be published by the end of August. I really didn’t plan these requests very well…
