Summer TBR

Welcome! to my latest list of unrealistic expectations – AKA my summer TBR! It’s been a while since I’ve done a legit one of these (TBH I think the last one was in video form. Awks.) and, frankly, I’ve been a terrible reader these past months. But today is a new day! July is here! The sun is out! The birds are singing! My bibliophilic hopes are soaring! And I am gonna kick some serious TBR ass.

To be fun for once, instead of repeating the same books I STILL have on my shelf that you’ve probably heard about a dozen times and I apparently think about reading more often than actually reading, I’m making this more about what I want to add to my ever-growing shelf of unread-tragedy. Three cheers for shiny new reads! Continue reading

Totally-Didn’t-Happen “TBR” 2.0

GUESS WHO’S BACK?????

Me. I am. Free from the chains and chokehold of academia to succumb to my baser bookish desires for the next 2.5 months! Though also, if y’all don’t trust me to be consistent here AGAIN, I don’t blame you. But hey, I’m a-working on it.

Aaaaaanyway, considering I not only didn’t read for a solid four months of school but I also hadn’t posted for the first 1.5 months I’ve been off for (the real world sucks, guys. Stay far far away.) I thought I’d do another shame-filled lament of everything I wanted to try but didn’t. It kinda does the double duty of what I want to read for the coming months anyway, so we’ve got a legit TBR and some teary-eyed self-deprecation all in one!

If school has taught me anything, it’s multitasking 😉 Continue reading

My Totally-Didn’t-Happen “TBR”

HELLO STRANGERS! Yes, strangers, because I’ve been gone so shamefully long I may as well be new here. Sigh. Aaaaanyway, I’ll be doing something new today: a totally-didn’t-happen TBR. Yeah, I made it up, so bear with me!

Backstory: I intended back in THE BEGINNING OF SEPTEMBER to do a Fall TBR. I was all excited, had all the books picked out, and…just never got the chance to write it. So then I thought ‘oh, I’ll just do that now!’ but, uh, no, because a) it’s DECEMBER and b) just as I’ve had no time to blog I’ve also had no time to read. Seriously. I’ve been on page 137 of Queen of Shadows since my vacation in AUGUST.

*Cries*

So instead, here is where I compile all those books that my optimistic reader self thought I’d read (until my academics-are-important self took a blow torch to that dream and watched it burn, baby, burn) with the thoughts that I like to imagine I would have reviewed for them and a hefty dose of self-deprecation. It’s a guessing game of hypotheses and sarcasm that I hope you will enjoy.

(PS. goodreads links are in the titles if you want to check anything out!) Continue reading
