February Wrap Up, Haul, & Update!

I have been doing an absolutely awful job at keeping up with reviews and posts that I want to write. I’ve missed 5 or 6 reviews over the past couple months, so I am going to do a mini review post, including all of those. That way, I don’t have to stress myself out that they still aren’t done, and I can move onto reviews that are fresh in my mind! I want to keep on top of my writing schedule better, so I think this will help.

Book Haul

A lot of these books (actually…maybe all of them) were left over from Christmas that just didn’t arrive in time. I bought most of the 2020 releases that I hadn’t gotten to yet, so I haven’t actually bought more this month. It’s definitely going to take me a little bit to get through these!

July Wrap Up & Haul!

Everything I read, bought, and posted in July!

Books I Read

*I had originally said multiple times that I would be interested in reading the sequel for this, but I started listening to it and realized that is has multiple POVs, instead of just the one from the first book. This immediately turned me off, so I don’t know now if I will be continuing this series.

Haul

Thankfully, I kept my haul really small this month!

  • Crave by Tracy Wolff (sent to me by Entangled Teen)
  • Heartstopper vol. 3 by Alice Oseman
  • Ember Queen (Ash Princess Trilogy #3) by Laura Sebastian
  • A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder by Holly Jackson

This was a weird reading month for me. I didn’t absolutely love any of the novels I read and I was stuck in Arcanum Unbounded, a collection of short stories for a long time.

What did you read this month? What book did you buy that you are looking forward to reading the most?

January Wrap Up & Haul!

Everything I read and bought in January!

Wrap Up

Other Posts I Made

Haul

I started a new “program” this month: I have to go to the gym five times in order to earn the right to buy one book. This is going to help me with a number of things: going to the gym more and buying less books. Since starting this, I’ve realized it’s making me critically think about which books I want to buy, instead of just buying any book that catches my eye. I’ve also realized that it will help me reread more, because I’m buying way less books, so I’ll have a much smaller TBR.

Some of these, I bought last year and they didn’t arrive until January and the rest are book club books. I am excluding book club books from my program because I know I will read them and I don’t want to be stopped from buying them because I haven’t gone to the gym enough.

  • The Bone Season (The Bone Season #1) by Samantha Shannon
  • Loveboat, Taipei by Abigail Hing Wen
