After a disastrous start to the year, I’m beginning to think that I’m now slowly getting my reading mojo back, if my recent reads are anything to go by. I found a couple of favorites, one of which I’ve been raving about almost everywhere, mostly in my Favorite Authors and the Mid Year Book Freakout Tag videos. I’m still going to be a little cautious, though, because I don’t want to jinx it in any way or form. I know what could happen and I’m super wary of it.
In today’s blog post, I’ll be talking about my May 2022 and June 2022 reading wrap ups. I read 9 books in each of these months and given how I’ve given up on TBRs and also on bothering about the number of books I need to read, it went pretty well. Buckle up for a LONG blog post!
Ever since I started my BookTube channel, I’ve been pretty consistent with posting wrap up videos. But due to what’s been going on in my life this year, I missed out on posting wrap up videos and blog posts for the first three months. To make up for it, in today’s Recent Reads blog post, I will be talking (in short) about the books I read in the month of January, February, and March 2022 – a consolidated wrap up post of sorts.
Welcome to the last in my 2021 wrap up videos in which I talk about the books that I wasn’t happy with in 2021. There are 10 books in here, in chronological order as and when I read them. Let me know in the comments what you think of them and if this post helps you decide whether to pick them or stay away from them. Let’s go!
Hello and welcome to part 2 of my favorite books of 2021 blog post! I split this into two parts because there are about 25 books on this list. Since I don’t like to keep things hanging, here we go with part 2. There are 11 books in here, and some of these are just *chef’s kiss*. If you haven’t read them already, I’d highly recommend you do because they’re some of the most amazing books I’ve read in 2021 as well as of all time! Let’s go!
Next in my 2021 wrap up blog posts is my favorite books of 2021 list. This is one list that I usually have too much fun making but also am so conflicted by because I just can’t seem to choose. But last year, I adopted a practice where every time I loved a book, I’d automatically add it to a ‘Best Books of 2021’ worksheet in my book list workbook. It’s another matter altogether that end of the year me kind of cussed my past self out for putting the burden on her, but we ended up here. So that’s good, I think? 😛
2022 has had a pretty meh start in terms of life in itself, while my reading has been going great. I’ve finished 2 books so far, both cracklingly amazing! But 2021 had some damp squibs and some that I just couldn’t get through. In today’s blog post, I will be talking about the books I DNFed (Did Not Finish) and the books that I found to be the strangest. This second section doesn’t necessarily mean the books are bad. They were just weird as hell!
Hello hello! I’m here today with the second part of my November 2021 wrap up. There was a small delay because I went on a vacation (a hectic pilgrimage of sorts, more like) and wasn’t able to keep updating the blog. I had posted the first part a few days ago and even the video for my November 2021 wrap up is now live on my YouTube channel. I had contemplated not writing this blog post but I didn’t like the thought of leaving it unfinished. So here I am!
Whatever else it was, I must say that November 2021 was an amazing reading month for me. I smashed my previous personal record of 17 books in a month and read 20 books, and I couldn’t be happier with it! This is why I’m doing my November 2021 Wrap Up in 2 parts. The first part will have the first 10 books and the second will have the remaining 10 books that I read in November 2021. I’m super excited to share all of these with you because there are some absolute gems in there.
Another book list, hey! And today, it’s time for my October 2021 wrap up, in which I share with you all the books that I read in October 2021. I read 12 books, I think, including some for the Scaredy Cat Readathon, which I failed miserably at. But I’m pretty happy with that number, especially because it came during a horrid month that went all shades of bad to worse. But never mind that. November is going GREAT and I couldn’t be happier with my present reading month.
My September 2021 reading wasn’t as great as my August reading, but I’m pretty happy with it. Reason being, I got to a majority of the books on my September 2021 TBR, if not got through all of them. And that, I think, is pretty nice. I spoke about all the books I read in September in my September 2021 Reading Wrap Up video that went up yesterday on my YouTube channel. I read 10 books in September 2021. While some were BAD, some were books that I absolutely enjoyed and became the month’s favorites. Basically, my September reading, as you’ll see was a mixed bag that I completely enjoyed rattling around and reading.
