Happy Tuesday, folks! I can’t do them every week, but I’m back with another installment of Top Ten Tuesday!
This is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. And this week’s topic? All About Books You Read Because of Recommendations.
Now, if you are a bookworm, you tend to have bookworm friends. I do. And from them, as well as any from fellow bloggers/bookish community members, I have created my list of 10. (Past and present book people.)
I forgot this month was ending until I got on here today and saw wrap-up posts… So lost in figuring school stuff out, I forgot to write a recap post!
But September has ended, folks!
My book escapades were in spurts. I had time to read and I didn’t, I made time to read and I couldn’t… Also, I think they were all M/M novels?? Wait, no, there was a young adult one. Y’all will see below. (I think it’s the convenience of my M/M ones being portable ebooks, which is not so for my YA…)
Time is just flyin’! August is already finished, too!
Since school started, I lost time to read freely what I want…lots of school reading…
BUT I ALSO HIT A SLUMP. A small one and I’m hoping to get out of it soon. I had planned some books for August, but nope. Seemed to have only affected young adult books… Like, I still read a few m/m novels, but I was still picky even with those. I think it’s partially because I had so much time to read over the summer.
I still read 9 books again, though! (6 being M/M)
Maybe it seems like less because I made less reviews this month, too… Lots of relaxing reads. Who knows if a couple of these will turn into full reviews *shrugs*
And I’m still determined to complete my reading challenge!
:: OK, this is gonna be shorter than normal TTT posts for me. School just started, so I didn’t have time to finish any other posts I had planned, so this is a quick one. But I still wanted to participate a little… ::
TOP TEN TUESDAY is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish! Today’s theme is in the title: do I have books still unread since before blogging??
I’m sure 90% of the bookworm bloggers do…
But I kind of cheated on this one! I also have a terrible memory and I only just made a Goodreads account several months ago, so I only just started keeping track of my TBR and whatnot.
I definitely bought these just before blogging, though, and still haven’t read them:
I was tagged by Anna @ My Bookish Dream (check her out, yo) to do this fun one! But a quick note:
PINGBACKS FROM OTHER BLOGS AREN’T WORKING FOR ME??
I checked, and the box to get pingbacks IS CHECKED. However, pingbacks for some of my pages unchecked themselves… This is the second tag I’ve come across that didn’t alert me. NO WONDER I’VE BEEN MISSING THE FUN OF TAGS. *cries*
Seriously, though, I don’t know what happened. I think I fixed it. So if you have tagged me in anything for the past 2 months or so, I didn’t know and I’m sorry!*sighs sadly*
It’s very rarely that I actually DNF a book. Like, I’ve DNF-ed 2 books in the past that were in the middle of a series, but only recently DNF-ed 2 more – one being a standalone, the other a starter to a series. But I know some people really know to a T what they like and DNF way more often. Either way is totally fine!
OMG, I WISH I DID HAVE A FULLY LOADED GIFT CARD *breathes heavily*
I currently have a $20 one and am still trying to decide what to buy… I also worry I won’t like new ones after I’ve bought them…
The title says it all, folks. Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by the Broke and the Bookish wherein us bloggers discuss the themed topic!
This is one I think EVERY bookworm can do, yeah?
I wish I was wealthy for the sole purpose of buying books. But most of us must fight our way to money made for purchasing beautiful blocks of paper and words (that we can sniff to our heart’s content).
Without further ado… (the pictures are linked to Goodreads)
I still have only read the first 3 of TMI and I own TID, but that’s my TBR for August… So I’m behind. But I love the shadowhunting world and cannot wait to continue exploring. I’ve been seeing some amazing reviews and comments for it. Sounds like it has so superb characters, too.
I’ve been having headaches and possibly sinus issues(?) that make it difficult to read. This has actually been going on for several months, but I’ve been pushing through for books! Don’t worry, I’m meeting my doctor.
But anyway, I made it through 9 (almost 10) books this July! *more confetti* Seems to be the same for every month… May and June had 9 books listed, too! (Excluding short, short ones I read.) And that also means 61/80 books for the Goodreads challenge!
There’s not much in the way of life – just enjoying my last month before school starts and I have to worry about packing up and moving. Still trying to find a car, too. I’m so nervous about this semester, though, because I’m doing a CAPSTONE. If you don’t know what that it, it’s death pretending to be a class. I’ve heard it’s 3x harder and 3x more work than normal. And I’m not ready. Then, I also had my big family reunion this weekend!
I…have been neglectful. More like unprepared. Due to living in my parent’s house until school starts and not wanting them to really know I take pictures of books (they’ll ask too many questions) AND having no props – I suck. I have infrequent posts. Sorry to those who might follow me. When I move and get better props, I’ll have more photos up! Continue reading July 2016 RECAP // Books and Not Really any Life Updates…→
