Reading Wrap Up: May

Literature

Images taken from my personal bookstagram account Here we are, almost at the midpoint of 2017, and I’m enjoying reading just as much as I did at the beginning of the year. Not to jinx it, but I’ve successfully avoided reading slumps and I’m ahead of my challenge which means I can now pick up heavier books. That being said, I do love an occasional adult romance novel these days, so there will be few of them mentioned here and…

Reading Wrap Up: January & February

Literature

Well, 2017 has gotten the best of me. Just two months into the year and I’ve already fallen behind with my reading wrap ups. BUT, I do have a legitimate reason for this little combined wrap up .. I wanted to revamp these posts but realised I didn’t have the time to do so, and by the time I realised I should have posted my January reading wrap up, it was mid-February and it made more sense to combine these…

Reading Wrap Up: November

Literature

In the month of November I met my 2016 reading challenge – I’ve read 60 books, and by now I’ve hit 64 books. Only 2 of the books I’ve added into my reading challenge this year have been DNF’s (Did Not Finish), which I think is pretty good. Come to think of it, I rarely put books down, but when I do, I have many reasons to do so. But that being said, here are the books I read in the…

Reading Wrap Up: October

Literature

Little late with this wrap up but hey, better late than never. So anyway, this month I improved from last month… a bit. The beginning was promising and then I was in a slump for a week and a half. By the end though, I read five books and mostly because at the end of the month I picked up two very light LGBT books.…

Reading Wrap Up: September

Literature

Three is the smallest number of books I’ve read in a month this year. I’ve read four books, and thought myself successful because one of those books was massive, but September was not a successful month. Somewhere in the middle I just stopped reading, and when I picked up a book in the beginning of this week, I didn’t understand why I had stopped! I finished two books this week and started a third one, so yes, most of this…

Reading Wrap Up: August

Literature

The beginning of August was definitely where I excelled this month. Then my vacation started, and I picked up a horrible book that put me in a slump… I’m still trying to recover from that one, which is why I’m afraid September is going to be the shortest wrap up this year. Maybe the fear of that will keep me reading… But enough about that, here are the seven books I read in August!…

April Reading Wrap Up

Literature

April was a great month for many reasons and reading 10 books this month was definitely one of the high lights. But before you think I’m insane, and read instead of sleeping, no worries, some of these books are quick reads, and one in particular is a little one. And besides, now I’m finally so on top of my reading challenge (currently 50% completed) that I’m willing to pick up a massive book from my TBR pile in May!…

March Reading Wrap Up

Literature

As promised, I kind of picked up a little heavier books this month but instead of reading the first two Stormlight Archive books by Brandon Sanderson, I read just the first one. Then I picked up lighter books, more tearful books and definitely a little less serious books at the end of the month. All in all, despite my plans to go all out and read only big books this month, I still went for the light reading and therefore…

February Reading Wrap Up

Literature

Behold, another successful reading month has passed and I’m now ready to pick up heavier reads in March because I’m ahead of schedule! Meaning, I’m on track to read 60 books in 2016 (oh yeah!). So, anyways, in the month of February, I finished seven books in total: one was a quick read, one a re-read, and one a little heavier read among the much lighter books I picked up this month.…
