2019 Anticipated Releases | July and August

I totally fell off the wagon with these posts after the first one for January and February! Honestly, this year there haven’t been as many books that I am super pumped about. I was really excited for BEA and BookCon posts from the bloggers and booktubers lucky enough to go, but even they admitted there were less hyped books this year than in the past.

Book List | Ten Books I Want to Read This Summer

Next week, I take my test for National Board certification and then summer really begins for me! I can’t wait to get back to reading. Last summer I read about 20 books. I don’t know if I will get to that many this year, but I know of at least ten books I for sure want to finally read. I was not able to give many synopses for these books because they are either the second book in a series or a mystery/thriller/horror book, which I prefer to go in to blind.

**Sidenote: You may have noticed my May Wrap Up post is missing. I only finished one book in May, so I will be combining May and June in one wrap up post!

Book List | Down the TBR Hole #6

Hello, readers! I just got home from a long weekend getaway and it is officially summer vacation! I have nine weeks of fun, sun, and lots of reading! I am working on another post and needed to clean up my TBR, so I thought, “Why not do a ‘Down the TBR Hole’ post since I haven’t done one in a couple of months?”


So basically the idea is to clean up your Goodreads TBR because we are all guilty of adding books to Goodreads and before you know it, there are 200 books on your list and you don’t even remember what a third of them are about!

How it works:

  • Go to your Goodreads want-to-read shelf.
  • Order on ascending date added.
  • Take the first 5 (or 10 if you’re feeling adventurous) books
  • Read the synopses of the books
  • Decide: keep it or should it go?

Book List | Books I Want to See Adapted

Welcome back, fellow readers! Today I was catching up on YouTube videos and I was inspired by a video about movie sequels/remakes to create a post about books I want to see adapted to movies or TV series. I will admit to being a total couch potato at times and binging Netflix like a pro some days. I love to read, but honestly, I still struggle with choosing to read a book over watching TV sometimes. In any case, I have read many books in the past year that I would love to see adapted.

Book List | Down the TBR Hole #3

Back to cleaning up my Goodreads account! I briefly considered deleting my entire account and starting fresh, but they seemed like a lot of work, plus I would have to follow everyone again. Too much. Instead, I decided to do another Down the TBR Hole post and keep chipping away at the books on my TBR list. Today I will be choosing 10 books instead of the standard 5 books.
