I would consider June a successful reading month for me! I read 6 full length novels and one graphic novel. I also found two new favorite books, which was very unexpected. Some of this I didn’t write a review for on Goodreads/Blog, but I did write a review for on Instagram. If you are interested, go ahead and check them out!

I know this is a little late, but I haven’t been able to sit down and write it. Better late than never. I read 6 whole books, and finished one on March 1st. Most of the books I read this month were ARCs, and not recent ones. I finally sort of caught up on Netgalley, and then I requested more. Anyway, here is what I read:
Skyward by Brandon Sanderson ⭐⭐⭐ .5
An Anonymous Girl by Sarah Pekkanen and Greer Hendricks ⭐⭐⭐
Dig by A.S. King ⭐⭐⭐⭐
Birthday Girl by Penelope Douglas ⭐⭐⭐⭐.5
So Much Life Left Over by Louis de Bernieres ⭐⭐⭐⭐
Red, White & Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston ⭐⭐⭐⭐
I Stop Somewhere by T.E. Carter ⭐⭐⭐

This month was not as successful as January, but who is actually surprised? This month has been rough for me in terms of mental health, and I truly apologize…AGAIN for not posting as much as I should. This month I finished three books, and over half of another.
The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller – ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
One True Loves by Taylor Jenkins Reid – ⭐⭐⭐⭐
The Female Persuasion by Meg Wolitzer – ⭐⭐ 1/2
Skyward by Brandon Sanderson – 70% complete.
I know this was quite short, and sweet, but I figured I would let you all in on the progress I have made. Hopefully March will treat me a little bit better. I’m going to try my hardest to read more. I definitely want to, that’s for sure.

I have finally participated in the Booktubeathon! This is my wrap up (it’s a little messy). Booktubeathon took place from July 30-August 5. If you don’t know the rules then check out the Booktubeathon social media linked below:
Come Closer by Sara Gran: 168 pages (This was technically my seventh book, but I didn’t read seven books)
The Magician’s Nephew by C.S. Lewis: 202 pages (Book with green on the cover)
Everything I Never Told You by Celeste Ng: 292 pages (Let a coin toss decide my first read)
V for Vendetta by Alan Moore and David Lloyd: 265 pages (Read and watch a book-movie adaptation.) I watched the whole movie except for maybe 10 minutes. So I guess I didn’t really complete that challenge.
The Caregiver by Samuel Park: I don’t know the page number because it’s an eARC, but I read up to about 35%. I didn’t include this in my page count.
Something in the Water by Catherine Steadman: 148 pages/339 pages
The Boy at the Door by Alex Dahl: 29 pages – 131 pages/351 pages
Pages read: 1,104 (not including my eARC)
This was my first attempt at Booktubeathon, and I loved it! I had tons of fun trying to read as much I can. It really proved that I should be reading more. Either way, I will continue participating in Booktubeathon every year from here on out. Thank you to Ariel for hosting it every year. She is doing such a great job.
If you participated in Booktubeathon I would love to see your wrap ups.

This month has been great in the quantity aspect, and not so much the quality. I read eight books total this month. I haven’t been able to do that in a long time. All of these readathons have been helping.

October is officially over! I hope everyone had a very spooky but safe Halloween. If you don’t celebrate Halloween, I hope you had a happy and safe Tuesday! I’m here to bring you my October wrap up. It’s just going to be a short post so sorry about that. It’s crazy to me that I’ve been blogging for about a month now. Thank you everyone that has followed along with me. I’m sorry I haven’t blogged in a little bit I just haven’t had the time to do anything let alone blog. I have still been reading though so no worries!

Hello everyone! So on October 21st I participated in Dewey’s 24 hour Read-a-thon. The link takes you to the website that explains when they have the read-a-thons and everything else that goes along with it. I didn’t end up sticking to my TBR just because I knew I wouldn’t finish most of those books.
I started reading Without Merit by Colleen Hoover before I started the read-a-thon. I had 155 pages left and I finished it. There is short review of it on my Goodreads. If you want to see a full review here on my blog comment down below! I would gladly write one.
After finishing that I picked up a few books.
The first book was Every Heart a Doorway by Seanan McGuire. I was going into this with high expectations considering most people love it. I haven’t been let down yet. I read 53 pages of that and I am definitely enjoying it.
I started reading Heartless by Marissa Mayer before the read-a-thon but I read 23 pages during. I’m buddy reading it with a friend on Goodreads and we can both agree that it’s not a good book. That’s all I’m going to say about it because I need to finish it.
Orbiting Jupiter by Gary D. Schmidt was the last book I picked up and I ended up reading 91 pages of that. Honestly, I was expecting to finish the book but life got in the way of that. I will definitely finish it soon though, considering how small it is and how big the font is. I’m sort of enjoying it but honestly it’s a little boring to me. Hopefully it gets better.
Overall I read 322 pages for my first read-a-thon. I was hoping to get quite a few books out of the way but I’m happy with what I read. 322 pages for me in one day is actually quite a bit. I barely hit 100 most of the time.
Let me know if you participated in Dewey’s read-a-thon or any other read-a-thon! I would like to see what all of you read and accomplished. Remember to be respectful and happy reading!
