It’s Monday, What Are You Reading? #IMWAYR

Happy Monday and Happy Memorial Day if you live in the United States! Hope everyone had a good week. I’ve been trucking along on my Goodreads 2020 challenge – I’m at 35 books of 75. Doing Monday updates has been a good way to keep me accountable to my reading goals. Until I started posting on my blog with weekly reading updates, I never gave much thought to planning my reading. Though I always have an insurmountable TBR, I always end up reading what appeals to me in the moment. I still struggle with that and sometimes books take precedent if they are an ARC (Advanced Reader Copy) for review or a library book with a return date, but it’s kind of cool to dedicate time to a book in advance.

Hello again! Hope everyone had a great weekend! I’ve been back at work, so I’ve had a bit less time to read, but I’m enjoying socializing with my coworkers and customers again. I can be a very introverted person and the time off has been a gift in some ways – for me to pause and get back to the things that bring me joy.

Alas, Zoom meetings just don’t hit the same…

The Unpopular Opinions Book Tag.

Saw this book tag over at Emer’s A Little Haze Book Blog, who got the tag from First Line Reader’s blog.

Now, as a writer myself, I know how difficult it can be to pen a novel. And I know it will always be harder and braver to create than to criticize. Whether or not I liked a book, I always give the authors kudos for this huge undertaking. But as a reader and a Gemini, I’ve got to say I love to read the tea (gossip) on books people didn’t like and I hope you do too 😉 I mean no personal offense to any of the authors and my opinions are just that and should be taken with a grain of salt.

Happy Monday! Hope everyone’s doing well! I’m back at work as of last week, so it’s been a bit harder to post as much, but I’m going to try my best. Once again, I’m a mood reader, so I didn’t read what I planned on reading this week…

It’s May! The sun’s (presumably) shining. Trees are in frothy flower. Everything is just a little bit sweeter. What better time to dive into a good fantasy read?

It’s Monday, What Are You Reading? #IMWAYR

Hope everyone had a great weekend! It was rainy here, so I spent a lot of time catching up on reading. Had a mix of good reads and disappointing ones, but I’m excited for a new week. I return to work on May 4th, so this is officially my last week in quarantine! (I’m going to make another post about that.)
