January Wrap Up and February TBR


I’m not dead. Just dying. There’s not even that much work to do or tasks to complete for the day—I blame it all on Tumblr. It clutched me in its sharp claws and stole my soul. All those half-sleepless nights spent finishing work at midnight because only then had the devil called Tumblr released me from its grasp, are for naught.

I don’t even want to do a wrap-up. Only three books, albeit great ones.

JANUARY WRAP UP

    

★★★★ 4 stars              ★★★★★ 5 stars           ★★½  2.5 stars

FEBRUARY TBR

In school, we have so many days off this month. I think all four weeks are four school days only! Of course this means more time to read.

    

I’ll leave the rest (if possible haha) on my mood. I might read another fantasy or take a break from it and pick up some contemporary.

Hopefully some reviews will be coming soon 🙂
Happy reading everyone x

November Wrap Up | December TBR


Can you even believe how fast this year went by? It’s so hard to take in! I still think it’s only been a few months since 2015 started. They say that flies by faster when you’re having fun, but it goes by even faster when your teachers torture you with enormous amounts of homework and ridiculous projects that bend your brain every which way.

November was quite stressful for me, but December is going to be such a big relief, thanks to the winter break. I will probably have a lot more time to read!

CURRENTLY READING

I’m 25% through Throne of Glass, and I am loving it already! It’s so hard to choose between Dorian and Chaol—I was originally Team Dorian but I’m starting to really like Chaol too. Ahh, why must Sarah J. Maas toy with my heart like this?

DECEMBER TBR

    

All of these books sound so good! I don’t even know how I’m going to pick one to read first. I didn’t pick any holiday reads, simply because I’m not much of a romance person and a lot of holiday books do focus on it quite a bit. Do you guys have any recommendations?

October Wrap Up and November TBR | The Most Pathetic of Them All


hipsterlogogenerator_1446521101611

Updates

  • I am so bad at finishing ARCs! My NetGalley ratio is currently 50%, but I’ve been trying to get it up to 80% for so long! I’m trying again this month and reading a few of those unread books.
  • Is anyone taking part in NaNoWriMo? I’m usually a Pantser, but I’m trying to become a Planner so this month I won’t be writing as much as planning. And then I might write the novel during winter break in December and January. So far it’s looking good 🙂
  • I have read 47 out of 50 books for my Goodreads challenge! That’s 10 more than last year, so big improvement. I’m hoping to get it up to 60 books for this year.

Interesting posts this month:

OCTOBER WRAP-UP 

I read two of the books from my said TBR last month, and I’m currently reading the third.

I only read 3 books in total this month, but I’m not disappointed, because I’m currently reading three books and I did have school work to do first. I didn’t post a wrap-up for the readathon I did either because I didn’t read anything

NOVEMBER TBR

         

This is probably the latest wrap up and TBR ever written. But I’m actually happy with myself for getting it posted because I’ve been cringing every time I see this. I barely read 4 books last month! Let’s hope I read more this time 🙂

Have a great day!

September Wrap-Up | October (and Halloween) TBR


hipsterlogogenerator_1443837802461

Fall has started, and I’m already in a better mood. I love summer, but the excitement of it starts to fade when summer does and school starts. But with October in swing now, and Halloween just around the corner, I feel like I can run a marathon!

Updates

  • Ooh, I tried to change up the colors for the logo thingy above, and I think it looks pretty cool with the Halloween traditional shades. What do you guys think?
  • I’m still on the NetGalley ban, and I have about 4 e-ARCS left before I can request another one. No! Time flies by so fast, but sometimes it seems so slow…
  • Are you participating in YASH? It’s a scavenger hunt with book authors and there’s EIGHT teams! Each team has its own signed book prizes, so go check it out! The giveaway and hunt end on October 4, I believe. Click here.

SEPTEMBER WRAP-UP 

I read two of the books from my said TBR last month, and I’m currently reading the third.

I only read 3 books in total this month, but I’m not disappointed, because I’m currently reading three books and I did have school work to do first. I didn’t post a wrap-up for the readathon I did either because I didn’t read anything 🙂

A Tale of Two Besties: A Hello Giggles Novel  Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo  What You Left Behind by Jessica Verdi

       ★★  2 stars                ★★★★   4 stars                 ★★★  3 stars

OCTOBER TBR

I’m currently reading 3 books, so I want to finish those this month first.

    

I want to read some Halloween-ish books this month too, so I tried adding together some ARC’s that I have, because I do have some “creepy” ones.

    

What are your reads for Halloween? I know I will celebrate the day by eating candy all day long and reading and staying under the blankets. I might even go trick-or-treating with my little sister.

August Wrap-Up | September TBR


hipsterlogogenerator_1440897030060

Summer has come to an end! My school starts in a week and this year, I’m going to be in grade 10 and this will be my third year of high school. I’m just so excited!

Updates

  • First of all, let’s start with the top! How do you guys like the little logo image up there? I think it looks cute, although I could have really improved the colours. But I’m lazy, so this will have to do for now.
  • I’ve put myself on a NetGalley ARC requesting ban. Yes, it’s a thing now, and I must do whatever I can to stop myself from clicking the ‘Request’ button because most of the time, it does not end well. I’ve decided that as of today, I will read and review at least 5 E-ARCS before I request another one. Wow, talk about self-control!

SEPTEMBER TBR

This month’s TBR will be very tentative, partly because school is starting, and partly because I’ve decided not to make myself read a book if I don’t want to. I might feel like reading something right now, but if I can’t pick it up later, then I’ll just leave it alone for a while.

This month will be a lot of ARCs because those have been sitting neglected on my e-shelves and it’s about time I pay due respect to the publishers and authors who have so kindly approved my requests and given me a copy of their books 🙂

      The Winner's Crime (The Winner's Trilogy, #2)  A Tale of Two Besties: A Hello Giggles Novel

I’m keeping my TBR pretty open as of now. What are you guys planning on reading this month? Are you going back to school/college in a few days too? Please tell me I’m not the only one who’s this excited to be confined to the four walls of a classroom again.

July Wrap-Up | August TBR


One month of summer down, one more to go. I don’t know how I will live when it’s September (I love school, but I love summer more!). I loved the month of July, but not a lot of interesting things happened, save for the #TBR Takedown 2.0 Readathon and just assignments for a summer course.

Updates

I ONLY HAVE ONE MORE MONTH TO READ AS MUCH I CAN 😦 Next year is going to be much tougher because I’ve decided to only focus on my studies. I will probably be reading less, but I think I will definitely finish my Goodreads challenge. Okay, by reading less I mean read 5 books a month. That’s normal for me 🙂

JULY WRAP-UP (click on books for reviews)

So many books! I don’t think I’ve ever read this much in my entire life in only ONE month! I read 9 books! And for the first time EVER I actually read the books I mentioned in last month’s TBR. My wrap-up for the readathon is also below.

AUGUST TBR

I should really only list books that I am 90% sure I will read—’cause 100% won’t happen 😉

I will be participating in the Booktubeathon, so the TBR for that will come soon 🙂
