And just like that…December and 2021 are over! I’m going to focus this post solely on December as I plan to do a separate post for a 2021 year in review.
December was not the best reading month for me, which I expected as it has my birthday and the holidays, plus I was traveling and spending time with my family and that means less reading time. In December, I managed to read 7 books, which is more than I thought!
Let’s dive into what the last reads of the year were!
How are we in the last month of 2021?? This year has been a rollercoaster of a ride, but I’m so grateful I’ve been able to get back into the book community! I’ve truly missed it and I feel like I’ve made so many great connections since I relaunched the blog and my Instagram in March.
I’m keeping my TBR pretty small for December as I want to leave room to find some fun holiday romances to read. I need to do some digging for some good holiday romances so if you have some recs, please drop them in the comments!
Here are the four books I hope to definitely get to this month:
October was a bit of a lackluster reading month for me, but I’m hoping I can make up for it in November, especially I’m not traveling for Thanksgiving. I’m also so close to hitting my reading goal for the year so let’s see if we can hit it in November!
I feel like I’ll continue to be a bit of a moody reader this month, but a lot of these books fit with the current reading mood. Here’s what’s on my to be read list:
Happy Halloween! Hard to believe it, but we’re at the end of another month. This year is just flying by.
I’ll be honest, October was a tough month for me. Work was super busy and I felt like I was in a bit of a reading rut. However, I did manage to binge-watch about 6 seasons of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, so that’s something, right?
October 2021 Reads
As I was in a reading rut this month, I only finished 6 books, which is probably the fewest books I’ve read in one month this whole year. I had purposefully kept my October TBR small as I could tell I was feeling very moody. Despite the fact I only had 5 books on my October TBR, I only read 2 of them and am in the middle of a third one!
I’m still in denial that today is September 1. Let’s just pretend it is August 32nd.
September is going to be crazy for me because of work and I’m currently not really sure WHAT I want to read this month. I’m feeling like September is going to be quite a mood reading month, but do have a few things on my September TBR!
Anyone else feel overwhelmed by all the books you want to read and not enough time to read them? That’s how I’ve been feeling yesterday. There are SO MANY books I want to read right now, but have no idea where to start and not enough time to read them all.
Making a TBR list can help, but as a mood reader it can also cause stress if I deviate too much. I try not to put too much press on myself to stick to the TBR to alleviate that.
Given that there are so many books I want to read at the moment, here’s what I’ve thrown on my TBR for the month of August:
Happy June! Hard to believe summer is almost here!
I don’t think I’ve ever posted a TBR list before on my blog. I’m more of a mood reader than anything else, but I’ve been trying to pull together a TBR each month to give myself a little structure. I definitely don’t stick to it all the time though.
For June though I have high hopes of reading all of the books on my TBR! First off, half of them are part of the “But Do They Bang?” readalong of Tessa Dare’s books. Am I ever going to get tired of saying the name of that readalong? No. I have a library book, an ARC and a new release on here as well that I’m feeling confident about as well.
