I have been seeing this come up on my FYP for TikTok for the last week or so. Mainly from Barnes & Noble employees. One of them goes up to their co-workers with slips of paper, and whatever is on that slip the employee has to recommend a book. So, I thought I would do the same thing. Only instead of asking co-workers, I asked those on my Discord server. I might make this a series, so leave your “tropes” or “topics” in the comments and they might get featured in the next one of these.
2020 was a tough year for a lot of us. I know I already talked a bit about this in my Happy New Year and Goals for January 2021 posts, but I thought I would make a dedicated post for going over the books that I read last year and if any of my thoughts have changed in regards to them. Since this last year really got me back into reading, as before other than Shadowhunters Chronicles which was the majority of my reading in 2019 I pretty much never read. But in 2020, I read at least six to eight books a month. If not, more as I often end up reading several books multiple times or re-reading various chapters repeatedly.
Time for another WWW Wednesday. I didn’t do one the previous week as I didn’t honestly get around to reading much. I tried getting as much progress as possible done on my book for NaNoWriMo, currently I’m at 28K out of 50K words. But my laptop battery exploded, so I have to put that on hold until my new computer arrives and I get everything transferred over to that. At least it’s forcing me to spend that time reading.
A few months ago, I shared that I’ve spent a lot of time on Discord, which is still true. The number of servers I’m on has doubled in that time, but one thing that has not changed. I’m still in a writers’ Discord by Rebecca Mix called Chaos Sprinters and every month we’re having a book club through there. October’s book was Cemetery Boys by Aiden Thomas, which I didn’t get around to until now.
I saw this post type first over on Ellie’s blog (Read to Ramble) and loved the concept. Since, I often end up re-reading the same books I haven’t been super active on here with new posts. I’m also doing a million things behind the scenes and participating in NaNoWriMo (a goal of writing 50K words during the month of November). I don’t know if I’m going to do a WWW Wednesday every single week, but I’ll try to post them every few at the very least.
