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.

2018 Reading Tracker Year in Review

It’s time for my annual break down of my reading tracker posts for the year.

November:

  • Read: 24
  • Bought: 1
  • ARCs: 11

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

What are you hoping to read this September? 📚 Do you read books as they come out? 📚 Every year I tell myself I’ll be more on top of Fall releases post #BookExpo and every year this happens. So this planned to read stack is probably too ambitious. But these are the books I’ll be pulling from for the rest of the month. 📚 The Queen of Sorrow is long overdue but I’ve been nervous to see how the Queen’s of Renthia series ends! I started Everything All at Once last month but it got pushed to the wayside for my book a day challenge. 📚 #instabooks #currentlyreading #amreading #instareads #bookgram #bookworm #bookblogging #bookblogger #bookstagrammer #bibliophile #booklove #bookphotography #instabook #reading #reader #booktography #bookstagram #igreads #booksofinstagram #goodreads #bookaholic #bookish #bookishfeature #bookstafeatures #bookstagramfeature #readersofinstagram #unitedbookstagram #toread #shelfiesunday

What books are you excited to read this month? 📚 Happy August! Last night I made some time to take book photos for the first time in about two weeks (basically all my posts for the second half of July were taken on the fly—it was very stressful). And you know what? It was really fun! I enjoyed picking out new angles and experimenting with props. 📚 These are the books I’m planning to read this month. I think it might be a little ambitious, especially with my first #missprintbookaday challenge coming up on the 25th but some are really fast contemporaries so I’m optimistic! 📚 I was tagged by @deadtossedwaves to do the #fivebooktag: 📖Last Book Purchase: The Darkest Legacy by Alexandra Bracken 📖Second to Last Gift: Silver in the Blood by Jessica Day George 📖Third Book in a Series: The Demon’s Surrender by Sarah Rhys Brennan 📖Second Book Read in 2018: Reign the Earth by A. C. Gaughen 📖First Favorite Book: Saving Francesca by Melina Marchetta I tagged some friends but consider yourself tagged if you want to join the fun! 📚 #instabooks #currentlyreading #amreading #instareads #bookgram #bookworm #bookblogging #bookblogger #bookstagrammer #bibliophile #booklove #bookphotography #instabook #reading #reader #booktography #bookstagram #igreads #booksofinstagram #goodreads #bookaholic #bookish #bookishfeature #bookstafeatures #bookstagramfeature #readersofinstagram #unitedbookstagram #toread
