What I’ve Been Reading: May Edition

Posted by 2 Comments

Wow. Can you believe it’s June already?? I certainly cannot. If you’ve been following along with my roundups, you’ll know 2018 hasn’t been the best year for me (neither was 2017 for that matter) but I think May has been going a little better at least emotionally? Hopefully I HAVEN’T JINXED MY 2018. May was also a fruitful reading month and I read 29 books. SO A LOT.

So not as much backlist sequel reading this month but I did finish a series! Neither of these really lived up to what I remember of the first books and I actually decided to give up on the Weather Warden series but at least I got these off of my TBR!!!!

I REALLLLLY hit the backlist hard this month and I am proud of it! I’ve been wanting to read Bud, Not Buddy since fourth grade so I am glad I finally did. There is not a single book I can say I regretted reading but now that I feel like I am actually making some noteworthy progress on my tbr (I have only 10 books from 2012 left I think!!!), I am starting to worry I am going to run out of books to read. Keep in mind I still have 1045 on my list :’)


This month, I am not really using any particular criteria for what counts as an underrated read but they all have less ratings than they deserve.

Before the Bomb Drops is particularly noteworthy from these three and a really crucial read, IMHO.

What have you been reading this month? Anything you loved I should definitely check out?


What I’ve Been Reading: January Update

Posted by on 02/01/2018 • 3 Comments

I’ve never done a roundup. But, if you’ve been following along, you’ll know that I challenged myself to read more sequels and more backlist books this year. I started 2018 by doing a cleanse of my Goodreads TBR shelf. I got rid of 300 books on there and it’s still a work in progress. I’ve also realized that for me to truly catch up on all the sequels, I need to SERIES so I’ll have to work on that this year too!

I read 6 sequels in January!!! There are still 139 more to go (plus even more as I add more sequels) BUT at this pace, I might read around 60 sequels in total this year which is NOT BAD AT ALL.
