May ’21 TBR

Another month, another TBR! May seems to be the moving month for me and while I want to get ahead of my TBR, I need to be realistic. So this month, while I’m setting a goal to read certain books, I’m also anticipating I might read nothing. So here are some books I want to read this month and I’m going to try to get through all of them! Wish me luck.

Mar ’21 Mid-Month Update

I feel like this year is just flying by. We’re already almost three months into the year, we’ve hit the 1 year mark since the pandemic began (for my state), and it’s already the middle of March! Time is absolutely flying. So to slow things down a little, here’s a mid-month update on what I read, what I’m reading, and what I want to read for the rest of March!

Mar ‘21 TBR

It feels so weird to post my TBR for next month on the 26th, but since there’s only two more days of February, I think it has to go up early. 

I’m so proud of how much I read last month, I almost got caught up on my ARC TBR (which is the first time I can say this in months) so not much is being carried over into March thankfully. Here’s what I plan to read in March 2021.

Goodreads Books I Recently Added to My Shelf

I love looking through books on Goodreads to add to my Want To Read shelf – especially since I’ll occasionally go through it and just put books in my cart from there to buy. And with so many books being published and announced each week, it’s so hard to remember which ones I was interested in.

So here are some books I recently added to my Goodreads shelf!

February ’21 Releases I’m DYING to Read!

It’s almost February (which is unreal to me because I still feel like it’s March 2020) so it’s time to show off the February releases I’m DYING to read!

There are so many books coming out in February, so I had to choose the ones I’m DYING for – so if you don’t see your most anticipated read, it’s probably on my list! But feel free to let me know which book you’re most excited for!

NetGalley Update: January 2021

It’s been a while since I’ve done a NetGalley update and since I’m working on getting through all of these reviews, I thought it would be good motivation to show how behind I am and maybe I’ll kick myself into action!

Most of these books I did request, though some are for blog tours and others were offered by the publisher or through a giveaway.

Underrated Books You Should Read Now

There are so many amazing books in the world and a few of them are not getting the recognition they deserve. I feel like some books are over recommended over sometimes even overhyped, while other titles are pushed to the sidelines.

So, here are some books I think are underrated and if you haven’t read them, you should read them now! All current reviews will be linked too if you want to check them out!

Exploring My Kindle TBR

Every so often I go on my kindle and cry at how many free books i’ve downloaded, whether through NetGalley or Amazon sales, that I haven’t read! Plus all the ones that I did pay for and also haven’t read.

Someone needs to take my credit card away from me because I clearly have no self control. I guess the only thing I can do is expose myself as the addict I am – so let’s explore my kindle TBR!

Currently Reading & Watching: Part III

October has been a crazy month and while I’ve been reading a lot, I’m also doing a lot of work on the book tours, my actual job, and other adult things. You know, like cooking, cleaning, crying because I’m stressed – the usual!

Anyways, I wanted something light to post today, so here’s what I’m currently reading and watching!

August 2020 Mid-Month Update

I love doing mid-month updates because it allows me to not only see my progress, but think back on the books I read that month. I still can’t believe I’ve read as much as I have and I think I might actually finish my TBR this month! I keep surprising myself every time I set a high TBR, thinking I couldn’t possibly finish all those books.

August and September are my crazy months due to all of the ARCs I received from publishers, giveaways, and what I just currently had. I’m hoping things calm down quickly so I can read books that I have been dying to read (like Kingdom of Copper!) but just don’t have the time right now. Anyways, here’s what I’ve read, what I’m currently reading, and what I plan to read next!

May 2020 Book Haul

This month, I wanted to do my part to help indie bookstores so I ordered a couple of books from my somewhat local indie store, One More Page Books. I’m not sure I’ll be able to order physical books for the future, but I will probably keep my eye out for any good kindle book deals (so pass them along if you have them!).

For May, I not only ordered books, but I also received some! I happened to win a Twitter giveaway (which NEVER happens for me) so I have FIVE books currently on the way! I did include them in this post because I won them in May, but I don’t know if they’ll actually arrive before the end of the month.

Okay, moving on! Here’s what I purchased and received in May 2020!
