July To-Be-Read Stack

July-TBR

I have a bonus book listed this month: How to Write a Novella in 24 hours by one of my favorite authors right now, Andrew Mayne. 

But let’s be honest – I don’t know if I’ll get to it this month because it’s also July Camp NaNoWriMo. I plan on participating in the writing challenge but don’t hold your breath – if I had a dollar for every time I INTENDED to participate in the camps …

However, reading this book might inspire me to write a novella for Camp. So … we’ll see. In the meantime, it’s summer and I’m loving life. Nothing like placing a cherry on top of your summer with good books. 

What are you reading?

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.

I have currently read 26 books out of 55.

Moving on, here is my July TBR stack:

  1. Drift (Rachel Hatch Book 1) by L.T. Ryan
  2. The Passenger by Daniel Hurst
  3. Luna and the Lie by Mariana Zapata
  4. Renegades by Marissa Meyer
  5. American Assassin: A Thriller (Mitch Rapp Book 1) by Vince Flynn

BONUS: How to Write a Novella in 24 Hours by Andrew Mayne

Happy Reading!

June To-Be-Read Stack

One of the questions that Kevin and I talked about in our podcast, (coming tomorrow), was how do you deal with stress? One of my answers was, I physically remove myself from the situation, whether that’s hiding in the bathroom for a few moments to deep breathe or take a walk around the hospital because …. people. Ugh.

But another big thing for me is reading. I read to escape my reality, to temporarily shove my thoughts and problems into a closet allowing more space and energy for my imagination to freely roam.  

If I could read for a living, I would, in a heartbeat. If anyone knows of any book reviewer jobs let me know! (I may be looking for a new job, very, very soon). 

Also – IT’S JUNE, YA’LL! Twenty-twenty one is nearly halfway over!

WHAT?!?

May To-Be-Read Stack

Guys, it’s Spring!

Can you believe we’re going on five months in to 2021?? I just got back from getting my salon appointment and the stylist was telling me about a young woman that was going out with her husband to celebrate their vaccinations (i.e. experimental injectable) and them leaving their house for the first time in a year.

WHAT?!

Are there really people out there that have not left their house for the past year?!? I just find that so sad. So, in essence, people have lost a year of their lives by NOT living. I find that incredibly sad, don’t you?

I, for one, will not be that person. We’re all going to die at some point in our lives, we might as well live our best lives while we’re here.

Wow, that got dark fast, didn’t it. Anyway, here are my five books for May. I don’t know if I’ll read all five, but that’s my goal.

I mean, I haven’t done a great job of keeping my goals so far for this year, why pretend I’ll start now?

Hello readers!

*SNIFFFFF* Can you smell the fresh air? Oh look! I see some green out there! The world is slowly waking up and I’M READY.

To read some more …

I’m not reading for the rest of the month. I’m “caught” up on my goals, according to Goodreads and I want to take this time to work on my blog and Patreon AND the April Camp NaNoWriMo.

More on that very soon!

February To-Be-Read Stack

Hello readers!

I didn’t get as much reading in January as I would have liked, but four books is on course for my 55 book goal this year, so I shouldn’t be too disappointed. It’s nothing like the eight books a month average I had last year, but if you couldn’t tell, I’ve been blogging more and that definitely takes more of my time and I want to devote more of time to writing so I shouldn’t be as disappointed in myself.

(I feel like I just talked myself into a corner there).

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:

  1. Burden of Truth by Robin James (Showcased on Reading Vlog – coming soon!)
  2. Flowers for Algernon by Daniel Keyes
  3. Trust No One by Debra Webb
  4. The Murder of Roger Ackroyd by Agatha Christie
  5. The Arrangement by Miranda Rijks
