    December Reads :D

    Hiya! Welcome to 2021!! Here’s a wrap up of the books I read in December. πŸ˜€ Full reading stats for the previous year below. ^_^ 54: Every Heart A Doorway Author: Seanan McGuire Genre: Fantasy, Novella Rating: 5 stars I wasn’t sure about this near the beginning. The main POV character was a smidge dumb at first. But this moved quickly, and it was surprising and a lot of fun! It’s about these kids at a boarding school for people who went through portal worlds and are struggling to readjust to the real world. This serves more as an introduction to the series as a whole, introducing a lot of…

    November 2020 Reading Wrap

    Hi, hi. ^_^ Reading goal met!! CUE CONFETTI CANYONS! πŸ˜€ That said, there’s still a month left and more reading to do, but it feels really good to meet a goal. Maybe that’s the best part of setting goals! 53 books seems to be a good goal for me. It’s achievable, yet challenging, and something I can strive for without stressing myself out. So, I’m going to stick with this same goal for next year. πŸ™‚ I didn’t read a ton this month. One of the books I’m currently reading is super good and fast paced and fun, but the main character is just getting on my nerves, so I…

    Mini Reading Challenges

    I’m thinking of doing themed reading challenges next year. I think it’ll be fun. I wanted to do that this year, but I didn’t take the time to figure out how I actually wanted to do it. I watched these videos over the weekend of someone picking their TBR out of a jar. Basically, she would have something like, “a blue book” or “a book on someone else’s TBR” and use those prompts to help her narrow down which books she wants to read each month. I don’t want to do that with each book, but I think I’m going to take a cue from her and put themes in…
