    July TBR List

    It’s that time of the month again! Since I started creating to-be-read lists, I have been reading more and more. Sometimes I sway from the list, but all-in-all, my reading has never been any better. I’ve read more in the last two months that I did January through March. That being said, I did forgo some of the books on my May and June list, so I’m keeping my July list short in hopes that I can get to those books too. Let’s get started with what I hope to be reading this coming month! Image from Amazon 1. Sweet Forgiveness by Lori Nelson Spielman My mother gave me Sweet Forgiveness years…

    June TBR List

    Happy almost June! It feels like I’m jumping the gun since there are still 9 days until the end of the month, but I’m already excited about the books I’m going to be flipping through in the next month. The first time I made a TBR list for myself was last month, and I’ve got to say I was a lot more motivated to read knowing I wanted to finish certain books in the month. I haven’t finished them all yet, but it was the best month for reading I have had in a while. Let’s jump into my June TBR list! Image from Goodreads 1. “A Darker Shade of…

    May TBR

    I have recently fallen into the world of Booktube, and I’d be lying if I said I haven’t loved every minute of it. Some of my favorite videos to watch are TBR (to be read) lists, and I’ve been inspired to start creating monthly (possibly seasonally) TBR lists myself. I think this will be a fantastic way to read the books that have been on my list (and shelves) for years without blindly reaching for a new book after I’ve finished what I’m currently reading. Let’s get started! Image from Goodreads 1. “All the Light We Cannot See” by Anthony Doerr My mom gave me this book over the summer…

    5 Books to Read this Spring

    Spring has finally sprung! With spring officially having started on March 20, I’m still waiting for it to feel like spring in Nashville. With the promise of 65 degree weather for the coming weekend, my hopes are high. I can’t wait to pop open a new book on my deck and enjoy the breeze while flipping pages. I’ve compiled a list of books that came out in March or are going to be released in April that I think will make fantastic spring reads. Let’s get started!

    Top 5 Daunting Books to Read in 2018

    Do you ever find yourself shying away from books that seem like they’ll take up way too much of your time? No…? Just me? Well, that’s okay. Personally, I get a little book-shy when I know I’m going to have to commit a lot of time to one book (I have commitment issues, are we surprised?). I’m worried it’s going to derail me from my overall  reading goals even though I know the read will be totally worth it. I’m trying to face that fear, and I’ve given myself the task of tackling these five daunting books in 2018 that have lived on my shelf for far too long. Let’s…
