January To-Be-Read Stack

Guess what?

I met my Goodreads goal! I read 55 books this year. I wanted to read more, but I also wanted time to do other things, which I didn’t do because I was brain dead most nights after work, but I met my goal and that’s all that matters, I guess.

I plan on making my goal 55 books again in 2022. I can definitely read one book a week, and those weeks I’m on vacation, I’ll read a bit more.

I really want to leave myself time to work on other projects this year and I REALLY want to figure out how to do that while working full time. I’m planning on taking more days off this year because life is too short to work it away, you know?

Anyway, I’m feeling pretty good about meeting my reading goals this year.

The big question is – did YOU meet your reading goal for 2021? What is your reading goal for 2022?

As always, thanks for hanging out with me. You’re the best.

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 55 books out of 55. (!!)

December To-Be-Read Stack

Once in a while, I get an itch. An itch to start writing book reviews again.

But here’s my problem – I’m lazy. No, no, we can say it. When it comes to actually putting my thoughts to paper, computer, Internet, whatever, I poop out and watch YouTube videos instead. Why? Because it’s easier! Because I don’t have to think. Because I’ve used up all of my brain cells at work and sleeping is the only thing that will replenish my brain cells.

But I have dreams. I have goals. I’m just not sure when I will actually achieve my goals.

So who knows? Maybe I’ll post book reviews, maybe this is just another pipe dream, but if you care to subscribe and follow along on my real, or imagined, writing journey, you just may find out.

Also – I made an account on Kindle Vella. WHO KNOWS WHAT 2022 WILL BRING!

November To-Be-Read Stack

Didn’t read as much as I wanted to this month, but I knocked some rocks loose and my brain short circuited so I had a good excuse. I should still meet my ultimate goal of 55 books by the end of December assuming I don’t have any other mishaps between now and then.

God willing.

September To-Be-Read Stack

I thought July was eventful.

August has been an emotional roller coaster. I’ve been too tired and emotionally drained to post much. I’ve been busy wrapping my brain around the fact that my life is going to look very different in October, maybe even as soon as September, I’m keeping my options open. 

But I’ll get to that, soon. I recorded a podcast last week but never posted it. I’m creating a podcast today and will post both soon. I’m working with Kevin on editing the videos because yes, I made videos for both podcasts as well. I really want to document this time period because I’m at the famous crossroads that we all come to at various points in our lives and I’m undecided on which road to take. But now I know, I WILL be forced to take one such road – there’s no retracing my steps.

Stay tuned, it’s about to get a little bumpy up in here. 

In the meantime, here is a list of books I’m working through for September…

August To-Be-Read Stack

AugustTBR

I didn’t read as much as I wanted to this month. I was so distracted with this whole experimental injectable mandate and whole lose my job thing. 

*sigh*

Anyway. I’m hoping to catch up a bit as I have some time off, (thank God), and we’re going camping to get away to relax and de-stress so … 

I sincerely hope your summer is going better than mine.

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?
