I’m here today with the weekly roundup edition of my updates for you related to my BookTube channel. I had previously posted a February roundup blog post where I spoke about the videos that I uploaded to my BookTube in February. But this, I intend to do weekly, so that you are up to date about my content as and when I post them rather than a month after I do. 🙂
I’m starting this new series on my blog where I talk about the videos I post to my BookTube channel because I feel like you guys should also know what I’m doing in life when I’m not blogging. And this even more so when BookTube is such a huge part of my life and a huge part of who I am right now. If you'd like to stay updated with my videos, do subscribe to my channel - The Melodramatic Bookworm.
This post was supposed to have gone up on Valentine’s Day, just like the video I made, where I talk about some romance books and recommend them to you. But as always, I got sidetracked by a number of issues, and here I am, putting this up eons after it was supposed to have gone up. It is, I think, fitting enough that I talk about some amazing love stories that have touched me, made me cry, and sent dinosaur-sized butterflies rampaging through my stomach. Not all of the love stories are the mainstay of the books mentioned. Some of them could be subplots, but the pull these stories had for me was undeniable.
Oh hello, hello! I’m quite a few days late in posting this wrap up for January, but better late than never, right? That’s what I tell myself and until there’s something else that I come across that will assuage my guilt for being absent here, that’s how it’s going to be. XD I read 10 books in January – far fewer than what I wanted to. What’s more, I started and ended the month with disappointments. Not a big fan of constantly doing this but all the other books, I loved, so I guess I can’t really complain. 😀
It’s been a hot minute since I’ve talked about anything here and I love that this time, ‘hot minute’ doesn’t mean months. 😛 Today, I’d like to talk to you about my reading plans for February. These plans include books for Black History Month, a readathon I’m taking part in, the subscriber pick for the month, pending books from the earlier month/year, and a book for a blog tour that I am part of.
Another list that I should have published at the beginning of the year, but the first month of the year isn’t yet over, so I’m going to consider it a win. But it’s my blog and I think it goes without saying that I can post whatever I want, whenever I want without bothering about anything in the whole wide world. No? Just what I feel? Okay then. 😛
I have the habit of sitting at the Starbucks closest to home for two reasons: amazing coffee, and decent Wi-Fi. I lose track of time when I work here and get so much done that I’m usually euphoric when I start back for home. So it was that I decided to go there on November 27, 2017 for what I hoped would be yet another period of fruitful work. But no. Tumult of the mind was coming my way!
Look who’s here with a super late blog post about goal setting for 2021! It meeee! See, technically, this blog post should have gone up in the first week of January. But I was so busy with posting videos to BookTube (I posted a goals video as well) that I didn’t pay heed to what was supposed to go up on the blog. But hey! We’re still in January! There’s hope yet. Right? Please tell me there is or I might break down. 🙂
I discovered Suanne Laqueur in 2018, when I requested an ARC of A Charm of Finches, the second in the Venery series. And boy, oh, boy, how I fell in love with that book and the characters! Javier, Alex, and Val became so close to my heart, I don’t even know where to start! But I realized that it was the second in the series a tad bit too late, just as I realized that you could read it on its own too. Reading the first one only gave you extra insight into the minds of the characters. When I saw that the third in this series, A Scarcity of Condors, was available for request, I immediately snapped it up. And what a wise decision it was!
Hellow hellow! A very Happy New Year to every single one of you reading this! Hope you’re doing well and staying safe and happy, and I hope that 2021 is a better year for you all! Lots of love! I know I’m 2 weeks late but it’s become a personality trait, this Houdini act of … Continue reading Reading Update: What I’m Currently Reading + January 2021 TBR
