Down the TBR Hole #11

Comments 10 Standard

Hey everyone, it’s good to be back! I remember being so excited to post Down the TBR Hole #10 and then literally not doing another one for weeks, but that ends now. I’m back and I’m better y’all.

So the way I go through my TBR is by fixing my Goodreads Want to Read section in descending order. I have it fitted to twenty books per page. Now, I’m finally up to page two! That means I’ve removed over twenty books from my TBR. Is it just me or do y’all smell progress?

The Rules

  • 1. Go to your Goodreads to-read shelf.
  •  2. Order on ascending date added.
  •  3. Take the first 5 (or 10 if you’re feeling adventurous) books.
  •  4. Read the synopsis of the books.
  •  5. Time to Decide: keep it or should it go

I'm Joining the Out of your Comfort Zone Reading Challenge 2020

Comments 5 Standard

I thought I wasn’t going to try any reading challenges this year, but here we are.

So, I was reading Marie’s December Wrap-up on Drizzle and Hurricane Books. Towards the end of these posts, she always includes a little blogger shout out. This particular one led me to Caro’s blog, The Bookcheshire Cat, and her Out of Your Comfort Zone Reading Challenge for 2020. I’m not the biggest with challenges, but I have faith that I’ll actually be able to commit to this one.

Down the TBR Hole #10

Comments 7 Standard

We hit double digits! That also means that today will mark fifty books that have been put to the test. Let’s see how they fair.

This week, we’re tackling the rest of the classics that I hadn’t gotten to. In all honesty, I haven’t read that many classics. Of the ones I have read, my personal favorite classics are To Kill a Mockingbird, Things Fall Apart, and Animal Farm.

The Rules

  •  1. Go to your Goodreads to-read shelf.
  •  2. Order on ascending date added.
  •  3. Take the first 5 (or 10 if you’re feeling adventurous) books.
  •  4. Read the synopsis of the books.

Top 5 Tuesday | Fall Reading Recommendations

Comments 4 Standard

Hey y’all, this week has been a weird one. I haven’t had as much time for typing up blog posts, hence the lack of Down the TBR Hole yesterday. Classes are in full swing, exams are happening, essays are due, and I honestly get overwhelmed with it all at times.

I’ve been taking a break from social media this week to give myself some extra time to recuperate, but I will do my best with maintaining Rae’s Reads and Reviews. Now enough about me, let’s get into what you came here for.

Top 5 Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by Shanah of the Bionic Book Worm. I’ve been following her blog for a while and you probably should, too. She’s a great book blogger and super sweet.

This week’s theme is 5 Fall reading recommendations, which I was honestly a bit iffy about. Then I started to think of what fall meant to me, seeing as I am from Florida and we don’t have any real seasons. I tried my best, enjoy.

I was tagged by the lovely Hanna of Hanna Reads several months ago. I was looking through my drafts and realized I never finished this. There’s no time like the present, after all. I don’t actually know the origins of this tag, but if you do, comment them down below.

Thank you Hanna for nominating me!
