I will fully admit that I am incredibly behind on all of my blog stuff but I am here to finally catch up. First on the docket is my November haul and wrap up. November was a busy month for me because it was report card time and I was also taking a course which really took up a lot of my extra time. So let’s just get into it.
October was a really good reading month. I read more than I thought I would get to, and the overall quality of the things that I read was really great. I enjoyed reading some spooky things for October. It felt very seasonally appropriate. It was also an exciting month for book buying because I ended up doing a Book Outlet order and treated myself a little bit.
April wasn’t my best reading month. I had a lot going on with report cards and also starting my second teacher librarian course. It meant that I didn’t have as much free time as I wanted to read, but I did read a few good things. Let’s just jump into it!
In July I read 23 books. I felt a little bit slumpy this month, but it’s still a pretty good amount of books read. I read some pretty good books too so I can’t complain. You’ll find everything I read and hauled this month below the cut.
March was a good month. I ended up reading a bunch and I enjoyed almost all of the things that I read. I picked up some exciting books and I’m feeling really good about how things went!
January marked the start of a brand new reading year. I’m excited for a fresh start and to read some really good books. I’m hoping to be able to tick more books off of my physical TBR, so I’ve joined a TBR challenge through bookstagram. Five of the books I read this month are from that.
I turn 29 on Thursday and honestly I can’t believe it’s already here. I thought it would be cool to wrap up my challenge to myself of the 28 Books I Want to Read in my 28th Year. I did a six month check in, which you can find here.
Without further ado, let’s jump into the books I read and didn’t read from the remaining books on my list.
November has been a weird month. I’ve been really stressed out with work and the general world, but I’ve had books to escape into which has been great. I have also officially beaten my reading record for 2019! In November, I read 28 books.
**Disclaimer: I received a free advanced reader’s copy of Harrow Lake by Kat Ellis through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you to NetGalley and the publishers for this opportunity.
Harrow Lake by Kat Ellis is a stand-alone novel. It’s classified as a young adult horror novel and deals with some rather sensitive topics, so readers beware. It’s about a girl named Lola who is learning more about her family history in a rather spooky small town. Harrow Lake, according to NetGalley, is set to be published on August 25th, 2020. I gave it five stars on Goodreads.
May marked another month of me working from home, so it meant that I listened to a lot of audiobooks again. However, I also got to read some physical books, and I checked some of the beefier reads off my TBR. Overall, it was a really good reading month and I felt like I really enjoyed a lot of the things that I read. Everything that I read can be found below the cut!
