Sept ’21 Mid-Month Update

Hey everyone! It’s the middle of September and life has been crazy for me.

There are a lot of Jewish holidays in September and we’ve already made it through Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur already, so the big two are done! I’m actually heading up to Queens to visit some of my in-laws for another holiday, Sukkot, this weekend and I’m really excited. I know it’s going to be a good time, I’m just a little stressed to leave my two kitties at home alone.

In terms of reading, this month has been going pretty smoothly. I haven’t blown through books like I wish I could, but I don’t think I’m falling behind. I’m right where I’m supposed to be – I think. Anyways, here’s what I’ve read, what I’m reading, and what I want to read for the rest of September!

WWW Wednesday (9/8/21)

Hey everyone! Happy Wednesday! If you weren’t aware, it was Rosh Hashanah this past Tuesday and that means I had off to celebrate the New Year! A lot of stuff happened this past weekend, including introducing my new kitten to my resident cat, Maggie, which went as well as you could expect! (Hint: it didn’t go super well)

In terms of reading, this week was awesome! And I can’t wait for all the great books I plan to read this month!

WWW Wednesday (8/25/2021)

Hi everyone! It’s been a little while since I’ve done a WWW Wednesday post, but I’m back again with another reading update! This reading week has been weird to say the least. I was surprisingly busy this past weekend and somehow managed to read on both of those days, but then on other, less busy days, I barely read anything. Make it make sense!

Anyways, to get to the point, I read books this week! Yay! And here’s what I read!

Aug ’21 Mid-Month Update

I’m a little late for my mid-month update, but oh well, I have some updates to share and it’s close enough!

I’ve somehow managed to be on track/a little ahead of my TBR and I’m actually shocked. I have been reading some really good books and trying to prevent myself from getting into a horrible slump, so I have been racing through certain books. Fingers crossed I can actually make it out of my TBR alive!

WWW Wednesday (8/4/21)

Hey everyone! Happy Wednesday!

This past week, I didn’t get a lot of reading done, but I have started my August TBR and the one book I did read, and the book I’m currently reading, are so, so good! I’ve been enjoying more paranormal thrillers and I think August is going to end up a pretty spooky month for me, but we’ll see where the books take me. If you didn’t see my August TBR post, you can check it out here!

Here’s my reading update for this week!

WWW Wednesday (7/21/21)

This week has been not great for me. A lot of sad, stressful things happened in a short amount of time and I’m still not recovered from it. On Monday morning, we woke up to find out our fish had died. I gave my fiance that fish as a present 4 years ago and he was with us through everything. He was a blood parrot cichlid named Smiley and he was so lively. He would swim up to greet you and do tricks, like flipping upside down for us. We are both so sad that he passed. And that was just the icing on the shit week I’ve been having. I won’t even go into the other stuff I’ve been dealing with, but I’ll summarize with lots of tears and lots of arguing. Not fun.

I’m going on and on about life. You’re not here for that. It’s sad because Sunday started off great and then turned for the worst and it’s just gotten more and more awful since then. But anyways, here’s my reading update for this week!

June ’21 Mid-Month Update

We’re already halfway through June and that means it’s time for a mid-month update! Time has been flying by and I feel a little behind on my TBR, but I’m hoping to have some time to catch up this week. I managed to read two books while on vacation and while I would have loved to read more, I’m pretty happy with what I’ve read honestly. It was a good balance between spending time with my family and having time to myself to relax.

With that being said, here’s what I’ve managed to read, what I’m currently reading, and what I want to read for the rest of June.

WWW Wednesday (5/19/21)

Well, I moved! I’m finally moved in and while I’m still unpacking, it’s now mostly boxes and some remaining things to get in. With moving week, I did not get any reading done. I was really hoping I could get through at least one book, but no. I got about 30% in to one book, but that was it before the chaos began. Anyways, here’s a reading update for this past week!

WWW Wednesday (4/28/21)

It’s the middle of the week and time for another round of WWW Wednesday! I didn’t get much reading done this weekend since I spent the majority of it packing my bookshelves and selling the stuff that I didn’t want to come with me. But, I managed to finish some books at least and start new ones!

WWW Wednesday (4/21/21)

Back again with another WWW Wednesday! I’m really liking these posts and it’s a lot of fun (and a little less mental work every week). Not much has happened this week, so not much of an update, although I did change my plan for what I need to read next.

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!
