You can tell which book I’m currently reading by the Goodreads widget in the sidebar.
I’m all about Kindle e-books. I’m a hard core e-book reader. I haven’t read an actual book in quite a long time and I find that when I hold an actual book, it feels large and clunky. I much prefer my Kindle e-reader than an actual book. With that said, I get all of my books from Kindle Unlimited – I rarely, if ever, spend money on a book – it all goes into the $10 dollars a month I pay for Kindle Unlimited.
So, if you’re interested in reading lesser known authors and want to save a ton of money in books, join me!
I rarely read anything lower than a four-star review on Goodreads – I’ve come to trust the reviews of Goodreads readers. I stopped reading for a long time simply because every book I read was stupid, or disappointing and ultimately, a waste of time. (I feel the same with movies – haven’t watched movies, or TV, in about a year). I’ve had great luck sticking to this philosophy and most of the books I read are pretty good.
You can see my book ratings on my Goodreads account.
My goal for 2021 is to read 55 books. Yes. My goal in 2020 was to read 100 books and I would have accomplished that goal but I participated in NaNoWriMo and that put me behind about ten books. So I cut that goal down to 90 and though I made that goal, I know that I won’t make that goal this year if I do all of the things that I have planned for this blog and our podcasts. I think 55 books is realistic for me – that’s about one book per week. I plan on reviewing more ARCS (advanced reading copies) this year, too.
Moving on, here is my January TBR stack:
- Burden of Truth by Robin James (Showcased on Reading Vlog – coming soon!)
- Flowers for Algernon by Daniel Keyes
- Trust No One by Debra Webb
- The Murder of Roger Ackroyd by Agatha Christie
- The Arrangement by Miranda Rijks
One ARC (Advanced Reading Copy from NetGalley – to be determined)
