Happy Tuesday! I’m very excited because, if you saw on Twitter, I’m slowly creeping up on my reading goal for 2017!!!! I set my goal at 25 books in January after failing to accomplish my goal last year… womp. BUT I’m right on track with 12 books read as of right now! If you can do math (I barely can), that means I pretty much need to read 2 books every month. I’ve been pretty swamped with school and grad school applications but SOMEHOW I’m still on track. It’s a miracle, folks. I read a few (actually, 12) books since I last did one of these so let’s chat about what I read recently and I’ll tell ya which books I’d recommend! Why Not Me? by Mindy Kaling I read this book on the plane to Florida back in January! Ryan and I went to Fort Myers and I tried not to pack 8,000 books for the trip (it was very hard… I love reading books on the beach). This one was a super quick read. I love Mindy Kaling from The Office but I don’t know much about her other work. I haven’t seen the Mindy Project and, of course, she… View Post
I’ve been buying and receiving so many books recently! Since I have now graduated and it’s officially summer, I’m really excited to be able to read more (hopefully). However, I just landed a summer job working 60 hours every week so who knows if I’ll really have that much time to get through my list! If you follow me on Goodreads, these books might look and sound familiar to you but this is the official list of books I hope to get through this summer. My goal for this year is 25 books total and right now I’m at 8. I was quite a few short of my goal last year but I’m on track to make it now! I don’t know if I’ll have any time to read while I’m in grad school so I’m hoping to get a lot of reading done these next few months so I can make it to 25! Here’s what I have on my summer TBR list… Since We Fell by Dennis Lehane I’m currently reading this one! I received it as my Book of the Month in my BOTM box.… View Post
It has been a while since I wrote a book post so I figured I’d let you know what books I’ve been wanting to read lately! I’ve been on a thriller kick, everything that sounds the most interesting to me lately classifies as a thriller. The first thriller book I can remember reading and loving was YOU by Caroline Kepnes and since then I’ve read HIDDEN BODIES (the sequel) and loved it just as much. I’m currently reading THE WOMAN IN CABIN 10 and I’m hoping to finish it veryyy soon. If you’re into thrillers, I recommend checking out YOU and HIDDEN BODIES but I won’t be talking about them because I’ve already read them and this post is about books on my TBR! For this list, I’m sharing the synopsis shown on Goodreads. Since I haven’t read the books yet, it’s hard for me to talk about them but I can share with you what caught my eye about each book. In a Dark, Dark Wood by Ruth Ware This book is by the same author of THE WOMAN IN CABIN 10 and I’ve heard some really good things about it! “In a dark, dark wood Nora hasn’t seen… View Post
Over the past few years I’ve started using Goodreads more and making reading goals for myself to try to complete. I made it my goal to read 25 books in 2016. In 2015, I finished a whopping 20 and figured I could read 5 more. Well, that seemed to be a little bit harder for me to accomplish this time around! I ended up finishing 2016 having read a total of 17 books and 5,310 pages. Not too shabby, but obviously I was a little discouraged I didn’t reach my goal. I’m trying again to read 25 books in 2017, and so far at 6 days into the new year, I’ve read 2! I always read a lot over winter break (typically because Ryan and I do a lot of beach travel and I loveeee to read on the beach!) so this year was no exception.
This post contains Amazon Affiliate links. Happy second day of fall! Today I’m sharing my fall reading list. One of my favorite things to do is share my current TBR list with you guys. I always love seeing what people are reading and it motivates me to read more and add more books to my ever-growing list! If you love books and aren’t on Goodreads yet, you’re missing out. I know I talk about it in almost every book post, but I just love that site so much. It’s a great way to meet some bibliophiles and catch up with what books are popular and what books others are reading! Plus, it’s fun and rewarding to update your status that you finished a book or see your progress in the yearly reading challenge (side note: my goal is to read 25 books this year and I’m only at 12… #help). Anyway, I have a long list of books that I hope to read soon but I’m only going to share a few of them right now. I’m currently applying to grad school (and taking the GRE in a few weeks…) so I’m not planning to get a TON of reading done… View Post
