It’s almost the end of August and that means it’s time to think about what I want to read next month. Of course, I have some group/buddy reads planned, there are some ARCs and a few books I just really hope to get to. My August TBR didn’t quite go to plan, but I never expect it to. It’s just an idea of what I want to read that’s almost always changes. So if you want to know what I hope to read in September, keep on reading!
Lately Candyce has been showing her Netgalley Backlist in an effort to put those books back on her radar. While we both are quite lucky with getting amazing eARC’s our ratio’s aren’t that great… At the moment mine is 37% and I really want to get it towards 45% by the end of the year. Over two years ago I wrote a blogpost about a part of my backlist and I want to continue that. I’ll warn you now, there will be some older releases in here ;). Let’s take a look!

If you’ve been following the blog for some time now you know I really want to increase my Netgalley feedback ratio. It’s been one of my reading goals for the last few years and I haven’t done a very good job. So I really want to do more of these Netgalley Backlist posts, because it’s reminds me of what I have and hopefully I can get some advice about what I should read first. My last Netgalley Backlist post was in February, so it’s definitely time. Let’s take a look at the next 8 books!
It’s time for another Bookish Beginnings. The last one was in February, so it’s been a while, haha. This meme was created by Rose City Reader. The idea is to post the first sentence or so of the book you’re currently reading. After that you talk about your initial thoughts about the sentence, book or anything to do with that. We both got an eARC of All of Us Villains last week and wanted to start reading it right away! Today we’ll share our first thoughts, let’s get into it!

There’s only a few days left in July, so it’s time to talk about what I want to read in August. To be honest, I don’t always follow this list of books, but they are the ones I’m really hoping to all complete. Once again I’m very ambitious, so it may be a challenge to get all of them done, haha. Keep on reading to find out what books are on my August TBR!
When you’re reading this I have been in France for two days but I’m writing this while I’m still at home haha. I’m going to France for a week and of course I am bringing some books with me. This is always such a hard part of packing my bag. While I also have my ebooks and audiobooks, I need some physical books and I you have to leave the rest at home… Interested to see which ones I decided to bring? Let’s take a look!

As usual, Isabelle and I set up some reading goals ever year. We’re over halfway through the year, so it’s time for a mid year reading goals update. Isabelle posted her update last week, so it’s my turn now! Earlier this year I did a little update, so let’s see how I’ve gotten on since then.
Last week Candyce shared her part of the Mid Year Book Awards. It’s a bit like the Mid Year Freak Out Book Tag but we came up with our own prompts/questions. We enjoyed coming up with these questions and we hope you’ll enjoy our answers. Let’s jump in!

Before 2021 started both Candyce and I set ourselves some reading goals. 2020 was not a great reading year for me so I didn’t do great on those goals. But I did set some goals for 2021 again. And since we’re half way through the year I thought it would be great to take a look and see how I’m doing so far. To be honest, I’m not completely sure which goals I set for myself so this is also a good reminder. But I do have an inkling and you could say I’m worried haha. Let’s take a look! Continue reading “Bookish Item | Reading Goals 2021 Mid Year Update”
It’s now July and we’re halfway through 2021. We normally do the mid year freakout tag (I think that’s what it’s called), but we decided to take a different road this year. We decided to create our own mid year book awards. What books have we been loving? What books surprised us? And a few other categories as well. This week I’ll talk about my favorites and Isabelle will next week. Keep on reading to find out what books get my awards!
