February 2019 Reading Tracker

Books I Read:

  1. Windwitch by Susan Dennard
  2. Sightwitch by Susan Dennard
  3. Bloodwitch by Susan Dennard
  4. Truly Devious by Maureen Johnson
  5. The Vanishing Stair by Maureen Johnson

February is almost always a bad reading month for me (at least since I started tracking this stuff) so I’m not surprised by these results. Consider the number of things I had going on at work and things that I had to read that weren’t books, I’m not that upset by these results.

Happy February! 📚 Here are all the books I need to read this month. Have you read any of them? 📚 I’m very excited to start Truly Devious (a birthday gift from @thebookbandit!) But now that I’ve gained momentum on Windwitch (soooooooo much better than Truthwitch) I’m trying to ride that through the rest of the series before I tackle anything else. 📚 You can also see my newest Narwhal succulent. It’s doing well so far! And I’m taking name suggestions :) 📚 #instabooks #currentlyreading #amreading #instareads #bookgram #susandennard #bookblogging #bookblogger #bookstagrammer #sarahporter #maureenjohnson #bookphotography #instabook #reading #reader #booktography #bookstagram #mayamotayne #booksofinstagram #goodreads #nevercontentedthings #bookish #trulydevious #nocturna #truthwitch #readersofinstagram #unitedbookstagram #bookstack #whattoread #toberead

New month, new TBR. New year, new resolutions. 📚 Sometimes I get very serious about resolutions but this year I’m keeping it simple. I’m continuing to grow my blog and Instagram. I’m prioritizing reading books I already own, cutting down book buying (and reading), and trying to make more time to creat eBay and Etsy listings to sell things I want to get rid of and things I have made. I’m also working really hard to let this year be the year I just believe it when I receive a compliment—something I always struggle with. 📚 These are the books I’m reading this month. It’s a big stack but I have already finished two so I think I can make it. Where should I start? 📚 Special thanks to @thatsostelle for the nifty letter board she got me for Christmas! 📚 #instabooks #currentlyreading #amreading #instareads #bookgram #bookworm #bookblogging #bookblogger #bookstagrammer #bibliophile #booklove #bookphotography #instabook #reading #reader #booktography #bookstagram #beautifulbooks #booksofinstagram #goodreads #bookaholic #bookish #bookishfeature #bookstafeatures #bookstagramfeature #readersofinstagram #unitedbookstagram #toread #whattoreadnext #toberead

I got to everything but Newt’s Emerald which I keep trying to do on audio even though I know it will be better if I just read it. Also I was totally slammed with things to read toward mid-January so that one had to be set aside for more pressing reads.

December:

  • Read:
  • Bought: 1
  • ARCs: 3

Yearly Totals:

  • Read: 166
  • Bought: 23
  • ARCs: 68

Details:

Books read jives with what I expected from my Goodreads challenge (which always skews higher because I count picture books I read for work).

Here’s the breakdown for the ARCs I received–I was very bad at tracking ARCs this year so I’m not sure it’s 100% accurate:

  • Requested: 29
  • Amazon Vine: 8
  • Not requested: 32

Last year I received 49 arcs. This year I received 68 which is a lot more. That’s partly because I’ve been requesting FierceReads blogger packages which includes a set number of ARCs (some of which I know I won’t read since they’re sequels or something) including some that I counted as requested since I will probably read them.

Happy Saturday! It’s officially December which means my #cruelprincereadalong has started. This week we’re reading the first 7 chapters of the book. 📚 I hope you’ll join me in reading the book this month whether it’s your first time or a reread. 📚 Last week @perpetualpageturner talked about choosing her December to read stack very deliberately to decide what books to read before the end of the year. I love that idea and tried to take it to heart with this stack. 📚 I’ve also been reading a ton to decide which books I could donate happily. That paid off and I dropped off 30 books for Toys for Tots—they accept new books and ARCs which are great gifts for older kids and teens! 📚 Have you read any of these? Where should I start? 📚 #instabooks #currentlyreading #amreading #instareads #bookgram #bookworm #bookblogging #bookblogger #bookstagrammer #bibliophile #booklove #bookphotography #instabook #reading #reader #booktography #bookstagram #beautifulbooks #booksofinstagram #goodreads #bookaholic #bookish #bookishfeature #bookstafeatures #bookstagramfeature #readersofinstagram #unitedbookstagram #stacksaturday #tbrstack

Happy November! What do you have in store this month? What’s one book you will absolutely be reading? 📚 I can’t believe it’s November! This is a big month for me with Thanksgiving, my mom’s birthday, and decorating for Christmas.

(I’ll tag some friends in a comment but feel free to join in with your own post or in my comments!) 📖Next Read: City of Ghosts by Victoria Schwab 📖Current Read: Save the Date by Morgan Matson 📖Latest Book You Want to Buy: None—it’s the time of year where I stop buying books until after my birthday in January 📖Last Read: Devils Unto Dust by Emma Berquist 📖Book With a White Cover: Sadie by Courtney Summers 📚 #instabooks #currentlyreading #amreading #instareads #bookgram #bookworm #bookblogging #bookblogger #bookstagrammer #bibliophile #booklove #bookphotography #instabook #reading #reader #booktography #bookstagram #kimmersbooks #booksofinstagram #goodreads #bookaholic #bookish #bookishfeature #bookstafeatures #bookstagramfeature #readersofinstagram #unitedbookstagram
