Bookish Item | The Big Books of 2024 According to Goodreads Part 1

I came across a list on Goodreads about the big books for 2024. Apparently these are the books that have been added the most. I thought it would be fun to take a look at some of the categories and see if I’m interested in them. This will be a multiple parter because there are like 64 books on the whole list haha.

Bookish Item | Goodreads Choice Awards Nominees I’ve Read

It’s that time of the year again! This past week we could vote in the opening round of the 2023 Goodreads Choice Awards. It looks like they changed a couple of things and Tuesday the final round started. That one goes until this Sunday, so December 3th. I had a pretty hard time this year as I have read even less of the nominees compared to the previous years. But I thought it would be fun to take a look at which nominees I did read. So let’s dive in! Continue reading “Bookish Item | Goodreads Choice Awards Nominees I’ve Read”

Bookish Item | Have I Read the Goodreads Choice Awards 2022 Fantasy Nominees?

It’s that time again! The opening round of the Goodreads Choice Awards has been opened and of course I voted. This is not a great contest in setup in my opinion but it’s still fun. And we also thought it would be fun to take a look at some of the categories and see if we’ve read the books. Today I will be taking a look at the fantasy nominees. Let’s jump in!

Bookish Item | End of the Year TBR

Merry Christmas! Just a couple of days left in 2020! What a year it has been. And while some people have been reading more than ever, I can’t really say the same haha. I’m still 5 books away from reaching my Goodreads reading goal so I want to try and read or even finish these books before the end of the year. Let’s take a look!

Down the TBR Hole #42

Again, I’m writing my next Down the TBR Hole pretty close to my previous one. So, I don’t expect any wild changes, but I hope to get my want to read list on Goodreads to start shrinking!

Down the TBR Hole was originally created over at Lost in a Story. It looked like a fun and productive way to finally make a dent in that Goodreads TBR. I went through my want-to-read shelf a little while ago but I think I was still to kind on a lot of books. Let’s see what I’ll make of it this time around. I decided to go with 10 books at a time so lets get started!

Down the TBR Hole #2

Down the TBR Hole was originally created over at Lost in a Story, and I found it over at Howling Libraries. It looked like a fun and productive way to finally make a dent in that Goodreads TBR. My Goodreads TBR isn’t as big as Isabelle’s, but I also wanted to see if I could make a dent in mine. I’m sure there are plenty of books on there that I don’t even remember adding! Let’s see what I’ll make of it this time around. I decided to go with 10 books at a time so lets get started! I chose 10, because my TBR isn’t that big on Goodreads, so I don’t want to be done too quickly, haha.

Down the TBR Hole #1

Down the TBR Hole was originally created over at Lost in a Story, and I found it over at Howling Libraries. It looked like a fun and productive way to finally make a dent in that Goodreads TBR. I went through my want-to-read shelf a little while ago but I think I was still to kind on a lot of books. Let’s see what I’ll make of it this time around. I decided to go with 15 books at a time so lets get started!

It works like this:

  • Go to your goodreads to-read shelf.
  • Order on ascending date added.
  • Take the first 5 (or 10 or 15 or 20, if you’re feeling adventurous) books
  • Read the synopses of the books
  • Decide: keep it or should it go?
  • Keep track of where you left off so you can pick up there next week!

Current “to-read” shelf: 1.017

Bookish Item| Reading Goals 2018

Wow, we can’t believe it’s almost the ends of 2017. With a little less than two weeks left in the year, we thought it was time to start thinking about our reading goals. What do we want to read next year? How much do we want to read? We may want to participate in some reading challenges. To see what we thought of, keep on reading.
