Today I bring you the books I’m going to be reading in February. February is a short month but hopefully I’ll be able to get to my 5 books. Hopefully, the Chinese New Year holiday will be helpful and will let me read more! Also, once I submit my revision for my Master Thesis proposal on the 12th (and hopefully not fail), I should have more time to read. Anyway, here we go!
January has been a pretty good reading month for me! I read 7 books and had an average rating of 4 stars which is pretty decent! Way to start off the year on a high note. This is my first monthly wrap-up and I’m not sure how much I’m going to ramble so we better get started.
The Unpopular Opinions Book Tag is like my favorite thing ever about the book community and it’s always the first thing I go to when I discover a new blog or Booktube channel. This tag was created by The Book Archer. Somehow, I think that it’s easier to figure out if someone has the same tastes as you by knowing what they hate rather than what they love. So since my blog is relatively new (or at least me posting regularly is new), I figured I should do this very fundamental staple of any book community member. Get ready for some unpopular opinions.
Today will be my first contribution to Top 5 Wednesday, which is a Goodreads group run by Sam from Thoughts on Tomes. I don’t think I will be doing this every week, maybe just once a month for the topic that intrigues me the most. The topic for today is forgettable books, which are just books where, for the life of you, you can’t remember what happened in them. I thought this was a pretty interesting topic because these are books you’ll probably never talk about otherwise since you can’t even remember them. I’m going to have to pull up my Goodreads page for this so here we go!
It’s time for my absolute favorite post to make – my list of top ten favorite reads of 2017! I absolutely love seeing people’s lists and I can’t wait to share mine! These are the books that I read in 2017 but they may not have necessarily come out in 2017. These are also the books I read for the first time in 2017 so it doesn’t include rereads. It’s been a really fun reading year and it was difficult to narrow it down to just 10 from the 91 books I read but I managed to do it. Without further ado, here is my list, from number 10 to number 1!
It’s the start of a new year and the start of me doing regular bookish posts on my blog. That includes TBRs and wrap-ups and stuff like that, so I’m bringing you my January TBR for today! I know it’s a bit late and tbh, I’ve already read some of these books in the first week of January already but better late than never! I think it’ll also be fun to share the reading challenges that I’ve chosen for the month (which I mentioned in my 2018 Bookish Goals post) and the books that correspond with them. So without further ado, these are the books I’m going to read in January.
The year of 2017 has been an incredible reading year for me. I would have read 91 books by the end of the year, which is definitely the most I’ve read in a year in a long long time. It’s taken me years to get back into the groove of reading and now that I have, I’m not about to stop anytime soon. With that said, I’ve set myself some reading goals for 2018 to hopefully improve my reading quality and keep up this streak. So here are those reading goals!
