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.

Monthly Wrap-Up: March 2022

Hello, everyone! We have reached the end of March and the end of the first quarter of 2022. Where has the time gone? Personally, I’m happy to see this month go. It’s just been a weird one with lots of random stuff happening. It has just left me feeling out of sorts, especially this week. I had oral surgery on Tuesday, and I’ve felt pretty horrible since. I’m on a soft food diet, which is the bane of my existence, but I’m sticking to it because chewing is out of the question due to the pain. On a brighter note, I read A LOT this month, and most of it was really great. How great? Read on to find out more!

TBR: March 2022 (Trope-ical Readathon Edition)

Hello, everyone! This month’s TBR post is going to be focused on the books I plan to read for the Trope-ical Readathon. For this readathon, I’ve picked books corresponding to 15 different prompts (or their alternates), which are based on common tropes found in fiction. I decided to join Team Fantasy again this time because I was most interested in reading its team book and liked the team challenges. You can find out all about the readathon here, and you can still sign up through March 6th. So, if it sounds like something you’d be interested in, go sign up!

Here are all of the common challenges/prompts:

Monthly Wrap-Up: August 2021

This has been a roller coaster of a month. Between my health stuff and hurricanes, I’m actually astounded at all I got done. I loved participating in Trope-ical Readathon and was actually on track to complete all the challenges before the hurricane drama of the past few days. My partner and I have been housing some of her family, who evacuated for hurricane Ida, which made it difficult to focus on reading these last few days of the month. I’m grateful to have been able to help them and be a safe place for them to go, but I’m also looking forward to things getting a little more back to normal again. I’ve made significant progress on my annual reading challenge and read a lot of great books this month, which you’ll see below.

Trope-ical Readathon: Update #2

This readathon is almost halfway over, and I’m actually on track! I’ve finished a little over half of my TBR. I finished another four books this past week and started on a fifth. I completed four challenges (Historical Figure, Multiple POV, Found Family, and Post-Apocalyptic). I also started my book for the ‘Published Before 2000’ challenge and read a little more of Blood Animus, which also counted toward my overall word count/points total even though it is not part of my TBR. So far, I’ve accumulated 3481 points since the readathon began. I plan to complete the two team fantasy challenges this week and finish the book I’ve already started for the ‘Published Before 2000’ challenge. I’m going to try to read a fourth book, as well, but I’m not sure I’ll be able to since both of the books I picked for the fantasy challenges are pretty big chonkers.

TBR: August 2021 (Trope-ical Readathon Edition)

Hello, everyone! This month’s TBR post is going to be quite different from previous ones because I am participating in the Trope-ical Readathon. For this readathon, I’ve picked books corresponding to 15 different prompts (or their alternates), which are based on common tropes found in fiction. I decided to join Team Fantasy this time because I love the genre and plan to read mostly fantasy this month. The team book also caught my eye, which clenched the decision and rounded out my TBR with 16 total books. You can find out all about the readathon here, and you can still sign up through August 8th. So, if it sounds like something you’d be interested in, go sign up!
