Down the TBR Hole: They just keep coming!

Down the TBR Hole

Can you believe this is the eighth week I’ve done this already??? That’s insane! I mean, it’s… Kind of working… XD You can check out last week’s Down the TBR Hole here!

Down the TBR Hole is a (very) bookish meme, originally created by Lia @ Lost In A Story. She has since combed through all of her TBR (very impressive) and diminished it by quite a bit, but the meme is still open to others! How to participate:

  • Go to your Goodreads to-read shelf
  • Order by Ascending Date Added
  • Take the first 5 (or 10 if you’re feeling adventurous) books. Of course if you do this weekly, you start where you left off the last time.
  • Read the synopses of the books
  • Decide: keep it or let it go?

The Spring Cleaning Book Tag: Unhauling More Books!

Spring Cleaning Book Tag

Hey guys! (I know it’s not spring, shhh let’s just pretend shall we) As many of you may know, I (fairly recently) started doing the Down the TBR Hole meme, in which you go through 5-10 books on your TBR and decide whether to keep them or let them go. As I started with about 700 books on my TBR (and continue to add more as I go, argh), I definitely deemed this idea necessary for me. However, with 700 books to get through and only doing ten per week, I’m sure you can do the math- that’s a long time (70 weeks) and it’ll be even longer as I’ve already added extra books and I’m sure that won’t stop. So I figured, why not try to get rid of a few extra?

I also recently started to watch BooksandLala‘s channel on YouTube. I find her super entertaining and her closet unhaul videos are both genius and awesome (each month, she watches her book haul from two years prior, and any books she hasn’t already read or unhauled, she either has to read in the next month or get rid of). Although those would be pretty hard to replicate, I found out that she actually made a spring cleaning book tag/unhaul about a year ago! Not all of the topics will necessarily apply to me, as she was getting rid of physical books (including ones she’s already read), so I may adjust some of them to fit my purposes. Here goes! 🙂

(This ended up being long enough that I decided to split it into two parts, so this is part one of the tag)

1. A Book You Didn’t Like: A Book With a Cover You’re Just Not a Fan Of

(Of which you find the blurb equally disinteresting)

Down the TBR Hole: And another one bites the dust!

Down the TBR Hole

And another one bites and another one bites and another one bites the dust-ah!

Hey y’all! I know I just did one of these a couple of days ago, but my TBR hole is just pitifully deep and I can’t afford to take a week off! As long as you guys enjoy these, I’ll keep doing them. XD Anyhoo, let’s just get right into it, shall we? If you want to check out “last week’s” post, you can click here!

(P.S. Yesterday I put up my post announcing that I’m a blogger host- meaning I’m hosting a prompt one day of the week that you can join in on- in the Biannual Bibliothon and participating in the 24 in 48 readathon! Make sure to check that out here!)

I’m going to have to get used to my new age haha. I always seem to get it down right before the next one comes along! I’m super excited for the year to come, blogging-wise as well as everything else! 🙂 Anyhoo, I figured I’d just do a quick little tag!

The ultimate wrap-up of all wrap-ups!

2016 EOY Books.jpg

Hello out there! Some of you may have been thinking that I wasn’t going to do a 2016 wrap-up, as it is already almost (oh boy) a couple of weeks in to the new year. However, I still thought I would do a wrap-up survey, and then at the very end of the year, I was tagged for this! Thanks so much to Eve @ Eve Messenger’s Otherwordly Endeavors for tagging me to do this! I appreciate all the conversations and recommendations you’ve given me in this past year. You’re such a great blogging friend! Cheers to the year to come! 🙂 Alright, without further ado, I present to you the Best of 2016: Continue reading
