Everything I read and bought in March!
Since finishing A Court of Silver Flames, I've been thinking about what I want from the rest of the series. There are projected to be two more full length novels and possibly another novella (at least). I wouldn't say these are predictions necessarily, so they won't be backed up with facts from the series, but these are just some things I would like to see. As I was writing these points out, it really started to sound like I am dragging this series...which I'm totally not! It is still one of my favorites and SJM is one of my favorite writers, but no series is perfect.
I never do readathons, mostly because I find them stressful and I'm a mood reader, but this one is a whole month and most of the books I already want to read fit the categories! Also, it is hosted by one of my faves, Elliot Brooks, so I'm in. Check out her announcement video here!
I have been doing an absolutely awful job at keeping up with reviews and posts that I want to write. I've missed 5 or 6 reviews over the past couple months, so I am going to do a mini review post, including all of those. That way, I don't have to stress myself out that they still aren't done, and I can move onto reviews that are fresh in my mind! I want to keep on top of my writing schedule better, so I think this will help.
I want to shout out some books that I don't see enough people talk about and think deserve more attention! "Underrated" is such a loose definition, so I chose books with less than 4,000 ratings on Goodreads. Also, if you're tired of me recommending Laura Wood and Akemi Dawn Bowman, prepare yourself 🙂
Everything I read and bought in January 2021!
I see so many books compared to other books, authors, or franchises in order to market them, so I thought it would be fun to take a look at those and see if the comparisons actually made sense! I've definitely read books where the comparisons I've seen make no sense.
As a note, these comparisons are pulled directly from reviews on the book. This means that people who just pick a book solely based on what they read about it on the book will see these comparisons as well.
Happy 2021! I have some updated goals for this year to share! I'm going to kind of keep these a little relaxed because I don't want to put too much pressure on myself and as 2020 showed us, you never know what is going to happen. I just want these to guide me, not confine me.
It's time for my book awards!! I had so much fun doing this last year, so I was really looking forward to doing it again this year! These are all based on my opinions and my overall thoughts on each book. Here's how I broke things up into categories: 1. 2020 releases 2. Best of each Genre 3. Miscellaneous awards (like saddest book)
Happy 2021!! I love doing end of the year/beginning of the year posts, and yearly stats are so interesting for me! I love a look into how and what I read. Here are all the books I read:
