• 2021 Reading Goals

    Hello! Since it’s a new year, I’ve set myself some new reading-related goals and also want to talk about some books I’m hoping to read this year! Goals My main goal is to read 50 books! Last year, for the first time, I read double that, but since I’ll be starting college in the fall and finishing up high school now, I don’t want to put a lot of excess pressure on myself.

  • September Wrap Up and October TBR

    Happy October! In September, I started school again and we’re doing a hybrid schedule (in one day, online the next), so with getting used to that and school work in general, I’ve had a bit of a slower reading month, but I did read five books and I really enjoyed most of them.
