What I’m Planning on Reading in 2023

What I’m Planning on Reading in 2023

Alright, in all seriousness, this is not everything I'm planning on reading. I'm no doubt going to read a lot on Kindle Unlimited, and a bunch of other things. But these are more the physical books on my bookshelf that I never got to for one reason or another that I plan on attempting to read in 2023. I also don't have a set reading goal, I'm just going to read whatever I'm going to read. Setting a number of books will either lead to stress or I'll be vastly wrong. Every year I've read more and more, but I also can't predict if anything is going to come up in the future that will change my reading habits. If I try to match 2022, I'll be wrong as I was unemployed for several months and I had limitless time to read. So, using that as a benchmark is going to be inaccurate. This is why I'm just stating some of the books I plan on reading for sure.…

Taylor Swift Midnights Book Tag

Taylor Swift Midnights Book Tag

It's been a hot minute since I did a book tag, and considering Taylor Swift just released a new album called Midnights, I knew several people were probably going to end up making book tags related to it. I really like this one from Star Is All Booked Up, so check out their blog to see the original. But these are the ones I came up with for each of the prompts based on the song titles.…

Trope I’m Tired of Seeing: Sacrificing Power

Trope I’m Tired of Seeing: Sacrificing Power

Sometimes I don't mind seeing particular tropes in books. Other times, I set the book off to the side and go: "Seriously? We're doing this again?" This is one of those tropes. I was debating on talking about multiple tropes, but honestly, I feel like this just needs a post of its own. What is that trope you might ask? The lead character losing all of their powers at the end of the book, especially if they were near god-like in the amount of power they had.…

I Have No Idea Where to Start My Book TBR

I Have No Idea Where to Start My Book TBR

In a recent post, I mentioned how I did a massive book haul. That's a bit of an understatement. So, I decided to pull every book off my shelf that I want to read. And honestly, I have no idea where I even want to start with tackling this pile. Granted, I already started it last month and have posted reviews on every book that I read. This is not even everything if I'm being 100% honest. There are some books I got last year that should be in here as well, but considering how many books this already is I didn't go back to grab those. Maybe I'll end up reading those before some of these, but I thought this would be a fun post to do while I debate on what to read next. Hell, you guys might help me pick which one to start with.…

The 20 Question Book Tag

The 20 Question Book Tag

I saw this tag on Ellie's blog, Read to Ramble, and she was tagged by Sabrina over at Sabrina’s Booktails, who found this tag on Prutha’s blog, The Confessions of A Music and Book Addict, and after searching through loads of other posts... I can't find the original author of this tag nor could Ellie. If you know it, please share in the comments. But I wanted to do this tag since it looked interesting and I need something to blog about during the stretches between books. Since I don't have time to read long books in one sitting at the moment.…

12 Days of Christmas Book Tag

I wasn't tagged to do the 12 Days of Christmas Book Tag, but I really liked the concept after seeing it on Ellie's blog (Read to Ramble). So, I'm going to do it as well. This tag was originally created by Lizzie Loves Books.…

My Thoughts While Reading Ruin and Rising (Shadow and Bone Series #3) by Leigh Bardugo

My Thoughts While Reading Ruin and Rising (Shadow and Bone Series #3) by Leigh Bardugo

Ruin and Rising by Leigh Bardugo is the conclusion of Shadow and Bone series. If you haven't seen my posts on Shadow and Bone or Siege and Storm I would recommend checking out those first before reading my thoughts on the final book in the series. As there will be spoilers. If you want spoiler free, go to the OVERALL THOUGHTS section as I'll be wrapping up my thoughts there without any of the plot points.…

My Thoughts While Reading Siege and Storm (Shadow and Bone Series #2) by Leigh Bardugo

Time for the next book in the Shadow and Bone series by Leigh Bardugo, which is Siege and Storm. If you have not read Shadow and Bone first, or my thoughts while reading that book I would recommend it prior to continuing on with this post. As I'm going to be sharing my thoughts on Siege and Storm in this post along with my overall thoughts of the book (spoiler free in that section).…
