I just closed my eyes for a hot second and December 2021 is already here. Wow! But okay. We’ll work with what we get, and this time, I’m taking it easy reading-wise in December because I know how hectic the month is going to get. By easy, I mean adding 10 books to my December 2021 TBR and hope that the books I brought in from November actually get read. So it’s a total of 12 books on my December 2021 TBR that I WON’T be freaking out over. Nuh-uh.
There’s something to be said for one month going atrociously bad in terms of reading and then the next one going splendidly fabulous, even if the other facets of life are still hanging by a thread. This is what happened with me. While October 2021 was bad on so many levels including my reading and my life, November 2021 has started off with a bang that I never could have anticipated in my wildest dreams. It’s just the 14th, but I’ve already completed 10 books and I’m the middle of 1 other, a carry-over from September. And I’m staring at the list in awe as I write this blog post detailing my November 2021 reading plans.
October always has me experiencing a burst of hyperactively enthusiastic energy that makes me go, “Oh, I’m going to get so much done before the year ends!” This time, too, despite being unwell and despite not being in the best frame of mind, I’m holding out hope and I made a list of 15 books that I want to read before the end of 2021. I might finish them, or I might not. And though I will celebrate if I finish these books, I won’t beat myself up if I don’t. It will be okay.
October is here, it’s officially spooky season, and it’s time to talk about my October 2021 reading plans! I never usually read horror before. Not by a long shot because I’m a HUGE scaredy cat. I jump at the littlest of things and reading or watching horror would have spooked me out to no end. But something that I found out very recently is that apparently I do have a stomach for horror books. This realization came about after reading Stephen King’s The Shining for the Bookbound Club that we host on YouTube. And now, a whole new genre has opened up to me!
In today’s blog post, I talk about how bad 2021 has been so far and the books I want to read in April 2021. There are a couple of books that I brought in from March that I will finish before I start on the other books, but okay. I’m hoping to make April a better reading month than the sorry excuse of March was!
Every bookworm and book hoarder’s problem is that our to-be-read pile never seems to end. What’s more, we keep adding to these piles and then lament that we have nothing to read. Is it our fault? Absolutely not! Is it anybody else’s fault? Absolutely not! It’s just fate. Destiny. It’s written in the stars. That’s all.
So it is with this “knowledge” that I list out all the 470+ books on my TBR in this post. Hope you like it!
It’s already March! And I’m hyperventilating about this fact because 2 months have already gone by and I’ve done close to nothing! Productivity is out the window, mental health is languishing, physical health is no better, and work is piling up to the point where I’ve become a trekker trying to scale Mount Everest. Every single day.
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. 😛
