March Reads in Review

Hello April! I have to say, I am really glad you are here as March was pretty rubbish. My daughter caught Covid, then my dad and my mom. And, while none of them were that badly affected (thankfully), it did add a complexity to the month (home-schooling, double-shopping) that I found difficult for some reason to bounce back from and why I didn’t do much blogging – though, here the fact that I struggled to find books that I enjoyed – also didn’t help.

Top Ten Tuesday: Spring TBR

I’m joining in with Top Ten Tuesday again this week, sharing some of the books I’m planning to read now Spring is here.

When it comes to reading, I’m not the most organised. It’s why I have given up on things like Good Reads and why my many attempts at starting a reading journal have failed. I never know what I’m going to read until I pick the book up – well, for the most part. There are books that I prioritise, either because they are ARCs or they are library books. Beyond that, though, I read as the mood takes me. Which means I don’t have a Spring TBR, just a list of books that I have to read, or think I might fancy….

So I fear this may be a standard refrain on my monthly round-ups – where did February go? After the last two years going sooooo slooooowly, here we are rushing through February – time to round-up of books I’ve read, and what I thought about them…

January Reads in Review

How are we already at the end of January? 2022 seems to be going as fast as 2020 and 2021 went slowly. I have a to do list as long as my arm (the things I want to accomplish!) and am already feeling stressed that I will run out of time. Thankfully, the new year’s resolution to re-invigorate my blog is going to plan – not only have I read some great books, I’ve managed to review everything I’ve read (click on the covers to find out more)….

Cleaning Up The TBR #5

Back in November last year, I did my first “Cleaning Up the TBR” post, something I first saw over on Fictionophile, who had seen it on Lost in a Story, and thought it was a really good idea. I know I’m not the only one who thought the same as I was seeing it everywhere so I am glad to jump on the bandwagon. Hopefully no one will mind 🙂

The idea is you take your Goodreads TBR list, sort by ascending date added, and look at the oldest five to ten items on your list. If you haven’t read them by now, are you likely to? Why or why not? If you want to keep them, make the case. This is my fifth visit to the list so far, with the last one in May. Here’s what’s next on the list…Read More »
