The Anti-TBR Tag

Dustypromises.com (1)

Hi! Hello! I came across this tag on Peruse Project on booktube and it seemed really fun and interesting. It’s a tag originally created by Nicole & Her Books, also on booktube. I kind of contemplated if I really want to do this because it’s quite controversial to talk about popular books in this manner, but hey, as readers, we all have different reading styles and tastes, so let’s not judge each other based on the books that interests us and the books that we dislike. So without further ado, let’s dive right into the questions:

2022 Mid-Year Book Freak Out Tag

Hi, everyone! I’m doing the Mid-Year Book Freak Out Tag a little bit late this year because I’ve been busy with personal stuff in the past three weeks or so. So this tag was created in 2016 by Ely and Chami on BookTube and it has been an ongoing tag around the book community to help bookish people wrap up the first half of their reading year. I have to admit that I haven’t been religiously doing this throughout the years, but here I am this year!

As you all know, I got married this year which is why, at the start of the year, I decided to just set 12 books for my Goodreads reading challenge. I knew for a fact that I wouldn’t have a lot of reading time this year given that I have a lot of adjusting to do. But as of writing, I’ve already completed my goal of 12 books, so I decided to adjust it to 20 books! It’s not much compared to others’ 50+ books a year, but I’m happy that I got past my initial goal early on. Continue reading

Most Anticipated Releases in April

20211123_111009_0000

Happy hump day! ♡ I haven’t updated this section of my blog in a while because of all the wedding preparations last year and, now, adjusting and finding my own rhythm in my new environment. There’s so many new and incredible things I’ve done during the first quarter of this year that I never thought I’d be able to do, but that’s for a different post. I’m happy that I finally had the chance to catch up with all things bookish which resulted in collating these new book titles coming out this month! With that, here’s a list of my most anticipated books for the month of April: Continue reading

Book Tag: ‘Goodreads Was Wrong’ Tag

20210527_151046_0000

I’ve been a Goodreads member since 2011 and through the years, it has been my #1 source of book recommendations and new releases. I also use it to track my annual reading goals and number of read books in my lifetime. Aside from that, I also use it to organize titles by genre, author, etc. I know Goodreads may sometimes feel like a “temptation” when it comes to adding new titles to our TBRs, but it has really been helpful when it comes to organizing my books, both virtually and physically.

I’ve been tagged by Angele and Rovie to do the ‘Goodreads Was Wrong’ book tag! It’s been a while since I did a tag on my blog and I’m so hyped to answer these questions.

End of the Year in Books

Hi, everyone! We’re now down to the last month of the year and, wow, did time fly way too fast. At this point, I’m not even sure if that’s a good thing because it sure felt like I’ve lost a year of my life at home. Haha But despite this year being a pain in the arse, it sure as heck been one of the greatest reading year I’ve had since 2017. 2017 was a very challenging year for me, and one thing I realized now is that I do turn to books for comfort whenever life becomes too hard for me to bear.

So today, I’m doing the End of the Year Book Tag which I’ve been seeing around the booktube community and saw that one of my bookish friends here in the internet did it on her blog, too. I remember doing a similar post to this one at the first half of the year, so I decided to do it now, too: Continue reading
