What I’ve Been Reading: March Update

Posted by 0 Comments

It seems like 2018 is now shaping up to be a pretty shitty year for me so like, I’ve been behind on everything and not in the mood to do anything except sit around and mope. I would say something more optimistic but like I am not an optimistic person in general, lol. But I’ve been rewatched old favs as a pick-me-up which has been helping a little. March was a decent month for reading and I REALLY hit my backlist TBR hard.

Only four sequels this month but I technically finished two series so HELL YEAH.


It was really great revisiting a series I read back in the day and this time, the books really lived up to my expectations. However, with time comes awareness and I also realized some of the problematic nature of the books and wrote to the author about it, lol. Beneath the Sugar Sky was technically the last book in the series but now we’re getting MORE BOOKS SO YAY.

I read 8 books, 8 WHOLE BOOKS off of my backlist tbr. Where is my medal?



My favorite out of all of these was The Only Thing Worse Than Me Is You. I couldn’t stop reading and am sad it is over but I guess that means I get to read more books by the author!!! Brown Girl Dreaming was also noteworthy and I really really really want a sequel, which is definitely not something I say a lot about non-fic books. The nice thing is that unlike my previous backlist reading ventures, I actually like 7/8 of these books???? WHICH IS A LOT.

These are published (and recently published) books I’ve read this year that have under 200 ratings on Goodreads and deserve more love!


The Night Diary is the only book I’ve rated five stars this year, I think?? SO. YES. READ IT. To be fair, I’ve done a could 4.5 stars but The Night Diary means the WORLD to me and I want people to read it.

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

What I’ve Been Reading: February Update

Posted by on 03/01/2018 • 5 Comments

January kind of flew by but I feel like February has felt like it has gone on forever. I did get a lot of reading done but at the same time, I haven’t really wanted to read in the same way I wanted to last month. That might be in part due to the fact that I’ve been stressed out all month and just need something to let up so I can breathe and read. For this upcoming month, I do hope that I will be able to go back to unhauling my backlist TBR.

I read 5 sequels in February (technically more but I am sticking to old series that I started instead of new books.) That’s one less than last month but hey February has less days so…

What I’ve Been Reading: January Update

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.
