Hi guys! Today I’m starting a new monthly thing that I’ll be doing which is sharing with you the books I’ve added to my TBR every month. I suppose you could call this my version of a book haul. I don’t really do book hauls because I rarely buy books. I get my books from the library and via ebooks. I don’t do a library haul because I just get the books that I’m going to read that month anyway so it would be quite repetitive to do a monthly TBR and a monthly library haul. Instead, I decided to do a post where I talk about the books I added to my TBR each month! These might be more interesting and less repetitive because I might not get to these books until years later! The number of books I add to my TBR every month also varies greatly so I’m not sure if I’ll even have enough to talk about in certain months. We’ll see how it goes! For now, here are the books I added to my TBR in August!
August was my best reading month in terms of quantity because I managed to read 10 books! I don’t think I’ve ever read that many books in a month before! Quality-wise, the majority of the books was mediocre and I had an average rating of 3.60, which is not bad but also not that great either. Since I’ve got 10 books to go through, let’s not waste any more time!
September is coming and it’s time to share what I’m going to be reading this month! September is going to be a pretty exciting month because my friend is getting married and I’ll also be going to Phuket for a weekend! I’m sure I’ll still have time to read though and I’ve got quite a lot on my TBR so let’s get started.
AceReader tagged me in this tag awhile ago and I’m sorry it’s taken me so long to get to it! I’m so excited to do this tag because it’s the first time I’ve ever been actually tagged to do a tag! Tagtagtagtag! That word has lost all meaning for me after that sentence. This tag was originally created by BooksNest and it’s about books on my TBR, which are actually some of my favorite kinds of tags to do. On to the tag!
For today’s throwback Top 5 Wednesday, I decided to do this topic from two years ago, which is about our favorite books from before we joined Booktube/Bookstagram/Book Blogging/platform of choice. I created my blog at the beginning of 2018 but I was a silent part of the online book community for a pretty long time before that! I think I discovered Booktube and the general online book community in 2016 and I haven’t looked back since! Since then, I’ve been getting so many book recommendations and now 98% of the books I read, I heard about from the book community or were recommended to me from there. It’s been a very long time since I discovered a book on my own. I wouldn’t trade the plethora of book recommendations and awareness of all the books out there that I’ve gotten from the online book community for anything but I think it’ll be fun to look back at some of my favorites that I’ve discovered more or less on my own, before I found the wild and wonderful world of the online book community. Here are 5 of them!
Today I come to you with a subscription box unboxing! I’ve unboxed NerdyPost before when they did their Hamilton special edition box and I loved it! It’s a really great subscription box for prints and stickers and other things like that. If you’re ever looking to decorate your space with fandom things, this is the subscription box for you! I was really excited when I heard that this month’s theme was Disney Princesses because the princesses are like my second favorite thing about Disney (after the songs). I purchased this box with my own money so all my thoughts are my own. Here’s what’s inside the box!
July was an absolutely incredible month for me because I had my trip to Europe! If you recall from my July TBR, I planned to read books set in the countries I was visiting, and that was definitely a special experience. It was cool to know exactly where the story was taking place and to see familiar street names and landmarks in the story. I definitely recommend doing it if you’re traveling anywhere! The stories themselves were pretty average but I really enjoyed the immersive reading experience I had created for myself. In July, I read 9 books with an average rating of 3.72. Here’s what I read!
