In previous years I have been creating a list of books to read based on my age, but I have not always been good about actually reading those books. However, this year I have decided to not do that and instead I’m going to try to read 23 specific books since it is 2023. I’m hoping that this is a more manageable number for me, but I guess we’ll see. I’m going to list the books down below. Let me know if you have read any of them, and which ones I should prioritize.
I turned thirty on Friday, and so it’s time for another one of my reading challenges to myself. I didn’t do the best on my challenge from the previous year, but I like the challenge and I like trying to check books off of my physical TBR. I have a large personal library, and while I have read a lot of them, there’s always more to read. Below the cut you’ll find my list of 30 books I want to read before my 31st birthday.
I didn’t do a TBR in May because I had disappointed myself the previous month by not achieving all of the TBR challenge prompts I was supposed to do. I didn’t do that in May either. I technically read books that applied to all the prompts but I didn’t read all of the books I had planned for the prompts. However, I still kind of wanted to do this post because I like talking about the books that I’m going to read. So I will do so below the cut. However, I want to emphasize that I don’t plan on reading all of these, but I know I will get to a fair few of them.
After a stellar reading month in February, I’m excited to jump into the month of March and to see what books I’ll read then. I’m participating in the TBR Tackle Challenge once more, and I’m definitely excited because it’s made me check off a lot of books from my TBR even two months into the year.
February is going to be a busier month for me as my schedule changes at school and I have more courses to teach. However, I’m still hoping to get a fair amount of reading done, and I might have a somewhat ambitious TBR as a consequence. I’m going to list the books I’m planning on reading below the cut.
I’m a bit late to the game, but I have a pretty decent TBR for January. I had an excellent reading year in 2020, and while I know that I won’t surpass my reading total, I’m excited for the wide open potential of a new reading year. So I felt like it would be fun to go over my January TBR. **Disclaimer, I have already read a few of these books.
Hello friends! Inspiration has struck Kari and I again, so we are back once more with another edition of The Loyal Book-A-Thon! This time we took inspiration from everyone’s favourite time of year: back to school! (I will admit to a little bit of sarcasm there, especially in light of the current times but I digress!) Our next readathon will occur during the month of September and we really hope you’ll come along with us on this journey! 🙂
August is kind of a catch up reading month for me, because I brought home a whole bunch of books from my classroom and school library and only dipped into a couple during July. It meant that I have a whole bunch still left to read for August, so I never made a TBR post at the start of the month. However, I’ve since decided to participate in the ScallywagAThon, which is hosted by HardbackHoarder, Paper Faerie, and Read All the Books.
May’s OwlCrate was a box that I was eagerly anticipating. I definitely understand why it takes so long for the box to be sent out, and I don’t blame them for that, but I do wish it was still coming mid month. However, that didn’t change my enjoyment of the box. I’m overall quite happy with all the items that came in the box.
I’m so excited about my summer vacation even though I’m not necessarily doing all that much this summer. I do, however, plan on getting a lot of reading done this summer though and try to keep myself entertained. I’m looking forward to all my summer reads. So what am I reading in July? You’ll find it below the cut.
