Reading is one of those equal opportunity hobbies. You don’t need to schedule it; you can just fit it in whenever you want, and whenever you have time. Personally, I like to read in every free second I can find.
Today, I have the Beverage Book Tag for you! It’s very important to stay hydrated, so grab yourself a glass of water and settle in for today’s post!
I have a whole bunch of book tags that I meant to do on Bookstagram, but I never really got around to them, which is too bad. I thought that it might be fun to share them here, and Kari agreed, because it’s always nice to have different kinds of things to post. So we’re going to start a Tag Tuesday series here on the blog!
I saw this tag on someone else’s blog, and even though no one has tagged me to do it, I need to. It’s a book tag based off of Taylor Swift songs, and I love Taylor Swift and I love books so this is perfect for me!
Today is my half-birthday! I am officially 27.5 years old, and in honour of this I want to take you back to a post I made on my 27th birthday: 27 Books to Read in My 27th Year. In that post I wrote about 27 books that I wanted to read before my next birthday. Since half a year has passed, I thought it might be fun to check back in and see where I am at in this special TBR of mine.
After May, where I ended up throwing most of my TBR out the window and reading whatever I want, I’m going to try and keep things light this month. I am going to hope to get to a couple of different things, but I’m just going to let myself mood read for the most part. It’s going to be a hectic month, so I don’t want to put too much pressure on myself. So without further ado, here are my reading plans for June:
I am a bit embarrassed about how big my May haul is. I promise that I didn’t really do all that much book shopping this month except for one or two things, but so many things that I had ordered in previous month came in and so it makes it look like I went absolutely crazy with my shopping. So I guess, technically, I did go crazy in the past months. Just know that I was actually pretty reasonable this month, it’s just that all of my previous crazy ended up coming to my mail box in various shipments this month. Pretend that I’ve inserted the See No Evil Monkey emoji here, because I’m definitely a little bit embarrassed.
**Disclaimer: I received a free copy of Please Send Help for review purposes from NetGalley. Thank you to the publishers for this opportunity.
Please Send Help by Alison Raskin and Gaby Dunn is the follow up novel to I Hate Everyone But You. It takes place three or four years after the initial story, and continues to tell us Gen and Ava’s story. Gen and Ava are best friends and have been since high school. They went to different colleges and so their friendship became long distance and both books are told through text messages and emails. The first is their first year of separation, and Please Send Help is the story of them being fresh out of college and working their first jobs. The girls are older and wiser, sort of, and navigating the world of adulthood.
I’ve decided to do something a little different with my reading plans in May. I’ve just come off of April where I completed two different readathons, during which I read some books which have been sitting on my TBR for a rather long time. It felt really good to check those off of my list, so I decided to dedicate May to knocking some of the books I have been putting off, off my list. However, I decided I am going to focus a little bit on fantasy books in particular.
