February 2019 TBR // feat. a List Inspired by F/F February and #SapphicAThon, and YARC2019

Hello! I’m back!

Just so you know, my silence for the last couple of days is because I read King of Scars. And I loved it!!

Liked it?? I originally gave it a 5-star rating, but I’m probably going to be bumping it down to 4 because in retrospect, there were a few problems with pacing and the plot was kind of…not focused. BUT THAT ENDING. WOWOWOW. I need the next book, ASAP.

Anyway, let’s get to the actual topic of the post: my February TBR! This is a tentative TBR – definitely not set in stone – but they’re books I’d like to read this month. And they’re based off a couple challenges taking place!

I’ve already announced that I’m participating in #YARC2019 and set a goal to get the Bengali tiger (read 50+ books by Asian authors), but I found other interesting challenges: F/F February and #SapphicAThon.

Down the TBR Hole #4

I’m back! With another Down the TBR Hole post. I’m going to try to turn this into a weekly thing, so that I can steadily try to decrease my TBR, but we’ll see. Hopefully I remember and it happens.

ALSO KING OF SCARS BY LEIGH BARDUGO COMES OUT TOMORROW AND I’M SCREAMING WITH JOY AHHHHH.

Well, not tomorrow for me. (I’m being responsible and writing this post on Sunday!) But it comes out in TWO DAYS people.

I’m already planning on clearing my Tuesday evening of all homework so I can stay up late and read everything. And I’m not reading the Grishaverse series. (Sorry, but can’t force myself through that. Nope nope nope.)

Anyway –> Back on track!

Down the TBR Hole was created by Lia @ Lost in a Story to help decrease the size of our TBRs.

HOW IT WORKS:

  • Go to your Goodreads to-read shelf.
  • Order on ascending date added.
  • Take the first 5 (or 10 if you’re feeling adventurous) books
  • Read the synopses of the books
  • Decide: keep it or should it go?

Year of the Asian Reading Challenge // In Which I Get…Kind of Personal and Set Impossible Goals for Myself

I stumbled across this challenge the other day on May’s blog and my excitement grew the longer I read her post. A challenge that had you reading as many books by Asian authors as you could? That the entire book community could participate in? AND YOU CAN GET BADGES?! Sign me up!

The 2019 Releases I Can’t Wait to Read // Books I am Willing to Fight People For

I saw a lot of people making lists like this, so I decided to do one too! And honestly, I need to do one. A list like this will remind me of the releases I’m hoping to read this year, so I actually, you know, read them.

You guys. There are so many new books coming out this year! And a lot of them sound so amazing! I look at them and I start salivating because I’m weird but also because my fingers are itching to grab a hold of them and I NEED THEM NOW PLEASE GIMME.

Me @ time: Hurry up so my books can be here already and I can buy them!

Also me @ myself: Uh, you know you got no money, right?

The perpetual conflict between me, money, and the clock continues. Of course, the books always win in the end, which depresses my wallet, but what can you do?

Right. You can always make a list of more books you want and depress your wallet even further. Which is what I’ll be doing! Continue reading “The 2019 Releases I Can’t Wait to Read // Books I am Willing to Fight People For”

Down the TBR Hole #3

Hello all you lovely people! I’m back! Again! Hehe…whoops, I keep taking hiatuses.

Alright, so I really need to try not to break my New Year resolutions in January, so I’m going to start posting! As of now, I will get back on my blogging schedule! So there. And what better way to start things off than with an extremely easy-to-do feature/tag-thingy?

Me? Lazy? Nooooooooo.

Okay, fine. I’m lazy. I’m kind of embarrassed of myself now. But moving on!

2019 New Year’s Resolutions // My Reading, Writing, Blog, and Life Goals

IT’S OFFICIALLY THE NEW YEAR!!

Happy New Year everyone! I hope this year is the year things happen for all of you! And I hope all of your resolutions come to pass (if you made any)!

Speaking of resolutions, I have a few of my own because I actually bothered to do them this year! And I’m actually planning on sticking to them! (Isn’t the last part shocking?) So I thought I’d share them with you all, that way I would be more motivated to stick to them since I wouldn’t want to suffer from the shame that comes from publicly announcing you’re going to do something but never actually doing it.

Hehe. Yeah.

So time to awkwardly transition into my list of resolutions for this year now. Continue reading “2019 New Year’s Resolutions // My Reading, Writing, Blog, and Life Goals”

2018 Wrap Up // My Year in Books + a List of Favorites + Writing Progress

UUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHGHHHHHHHHHH.

UGGGGHHHHHH.

UUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUGGGGGGGGHHHHHH.

This year is over.

*cheers like a maniac* YEEESSS.

Okay so I’m slightly melodramatic but I feel like this is deserved? Because this year. Is over. And exams. Are over. All those UGHs don’t cover even half of the PAIN this last month entailed.

Alright now I KNOW I’m being overdramatic, I’m not even in college yet. So I have no right to complain. So feel free to just ignore these last few sentences (paragraphs?).

And uh…sorry about the month long hiatus? *sweatdrops* I didn’t mean for it to happen, it just kind of did? So I apologize. And I hope the holidays have been happy for everyone!

Since it’s the end of the year now so I crawled out of the hole I’ve been dying in (I can’t stop me self from being overdramatic soMEONE SEND HELP) to do this post. Yay. SO LET’S GET STARTED. Break down this year one brick at a time. Woo-hoo. Continue reading “2018 Wrap Up // My Year in Books + a List of Favorites + Writing Progress”
