I was packing for a vacation recently and I had such a hard time deciding which books to bring with me. What if I didn't want to read any of the books I brought? Then it hit me that this is such a mood reader problem! I am totally a mood reader and a lot of the time, it annoys me because I love schedules and order, but when it comes to reading, all bets are off. Here are some of the things I go through as a mood reader.
I wasn't tagged in this and it isn't really the end of the year, but I'm seeing this tag everywhere and I want to join the bandwagon! This tag was created by Ariel on Youtube.
I made a super informal list in a random notebook near the beginning of this year outlining my reading goals for the year. Since we have just about two months left of the year, I wanted to check in and see what goals I have reached and which I can try to do better on by the end of the year! Most of these are not super quantifiable, but I think I have a pretty good feeling on whether or not I think I could do better.
There are definitely a few books that I associate with the Halloween season, or autumn in general, even if they don't necessarily take place around that time. Here are my recommendations for books that have that spooky vibes, including witches, fae, and ghosts.
I know "don't judge a book by it's cover" is an age old saying, but I will be the first to admit that I do judge books by their covers. Honestly, this hasn't turned out too badly for me! As I browse Instagram, Twitter, Goodreads, WordPress, ect. all the time, I am pretty up to date with popular books. Even if I don't really know what they are about, I've at least seen them around. This makes it super exciting when I go to the bookstore and pick up a book that I have never seen before.
I was listening to a book podcast recently and they were talking about books they had to read for high school, or in the case of one of the hosts, didn't read. I was absolutely terrible at actually reading assigned books in high school and Sparknotes was my best friend! It's just a little ironic to me that someone who read so few of assigned books in school is such an avid reader now!
