August wasn’t my best reading month. I did read some interesting books, but I felt like I was in a bit of a reading slump for a good part of the month. It couldn’t be helped. I was also busy and had a lot of course work. I did end up reading 20 books, and I hauled one. You’ll find them below the cut.
**Disclaimer: I recieved a free teaser eARC of But I Live by Miriam Libicki through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thanks to the publishers and NetGalley for this opportunity.
But I Live: Three Stories of Child Survivors of the Holocaust by Miriam Libicki is a collection of graphic novellas about children who survived the Holocaust. The eARC is read was a sneak peak that contained just the first novella. I rated it four stars on Goodreads. It is set to be published on May 24th, 2022.
I had a pretty good reading month in March. I’m really satisfied with the things that I read, though I do wish that I had been able to read even more since I was off for spring break. I had wanted to do a 24 hour readathon on my own, but I never got around to it. Things just got a bit too busy. Oh well. Let’s jump into everything I hauled and read in March!
November was a really interesting month for me. I read a lot of books, but I also didn’t have nearly as much time for reading as I usually do as I started a course on becoming a teacher librarian. It’s really interesting, but with that on top of teaching full time, I didn’t get as much reading as I wanted to done. However, I’m still happy with what I read. Let’s jump into it.
June didn’t have a good feeling reading month wise for me. I read a good amount of books, but I just felt a lot less productive reading wise than I usually do. It was also end of the school year wrap up time so that added a bit of stress to the plate and made it so I had less time to read than usual. There was a lot that piled up this month on my to do list.
It’s been just about six months since my birthday, so I thought it would be a good time to do a quick update on how many books from my 29 Reads for My 29th Year post. If I have read it, I’ll give it a quick review.
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!
I honestly can’t believe that December is coming to a close and that 2020 is wrapping up. This has been a hard year, but it’s also had some good moments for me personally. That being said, I am glad that it’s coming to an end and am hoping for even better things in 2021. I had a pretty decent reading month this month, and I hauled a few books. I’m just going to jump into those now, but you’ll find them below the cut.
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.
