September Reading Plans

20200921_104406_0000

Hello, everyone! You may or may not have noticed that I do not post monthly TBRs on my blog and on Instagram (if you’re following me there, too). I have always been a mood reader, so following monthly TBRs just doesn’t work for me as much as it does for everyone else. I tried setting monthly to-be-reads back in 2013 when I still have a separate blog for books, but I really had a hard time following it.

This month, though, I will be setting a monthly reading plan for myself because, seriously, there are so many unread books on my physical TBR that I really need to get to. So I figured that there is nothing wrong in trying again. Besides, 2013 was a long time ago and I am not the same person anymore. Haha It might work for me this time. *crossed fingers* Continue reading

Best Books of 2020 So Far

Hi, everyone! I hope you are all doing okay and you are all able to cope up with the events happening worldwide recently. It’s been a tough year, generally speaking, but to get my mind off all the cruel things happening around us, I turned to my books for solace. Just like what I used to do when I was kid and so 2020 instantly became a great reading year for me so far. My Goodreads goal is to read 30 books this year and I’ve already read 22 books (so I will probably adjust my reading challenge to 40 or 50).

This “tag” is an annual bookish thing that has been going on around the bookish community which, to be honest, I haven’t done in a while. Since I did read a lot of books so far this year, I decided to do it again. Wow, I can’t even remember the last time I did this (and I can’t even remember if that particular post still exists in my blog since I migrated to WordPress from Tumblr just last year).

Book List: My 2020 Anticipated Books

20200921_104006_0000

Today, I will list my top 10 most anticipated books for the year 2020! And, yes, maybe this post is (again) a little too late because we are already four months into 2020. As I mentioned in my previous posts, I have more time to write and work on some blog posts (and read books) these days because of the lockdown. So I’m using the time I have to do posts I didn’t have to time to work on a couple of months back.

There are a lot of books I am excited about that will be released this year, but I was able to narrow them down to just 10. Some of the books I’ve listed below were already released earlier this month, but I still don’t have a copy of any of them. Continue reading
