Blackoweenathon Wrap Up

Image

Okay, October didn’t go as I wanted to in terms of a lot of things and definitely in terms of reading. It wasn’t bad and I did get to a lot of books that I’ve been meaning to for a while and I had a good time with them. But I strayed off the prompts a bit and some books had to double up to fit all the prompts. However, I really liked and enjoyed all the books I’ve wrapped up here and so I consider it a good readathon!

October Wrap Up

When I first wrote started this post, it was in the first week of October and I wrote how much more relaxed the month was turning out to be. Then the end of October hit and it was absolutely not relaxing in the slightest. I had a huge work thing going on, as well as a new kid on my caseload and the whole thing was stressful and kept me busy. I managed to get some things read in bursts but I was very distracted for most of the month.

November TBR

Oh I really do love November. I never used to when I was at school but now it’s near the end of the year but it’s not as busy as December. Exciting but yet calmer and slower than December. It’s also Nanowrimo month and Non-fiction November so that’s the focus of this month’s reading, as well as looking at getting some more books from my 2022 TBR checked off.

Clear Your Shit Readathon

Image

It’s that time of year again! The time when you look at your life and choices and decide that maybe you have to read some of the books you own. Or maybe that’s just me. But anyway, the Clear Your Shit Readathon (website here, twitter here, schedule here, Storygraph challenge here) is focused on books you already own. There are storylines, characters, a narrator who frankly only cares whether or not they get paid, and it’s just a good time.

Okay I found it! So week one has three prompts and this year I’m really going to try and stay on target (and actually read books I own, not just library books!). The write up of the first week is here.

WWW Wednesday 05/10

My first WWW Wednesday post! This is a weekly theme by Taking on a World of Words and it’s about the three W’s. I almost forgot it was Wednesday (thank you night shifts) but I remembered in time to get this post out. It’s the start of the month, which generally means I’m reading nothing or reading everything. Thankfully, this month it’s the latter.

  • What are you currently reading?
  • What did you recently finish reading?
  • What do you think you’ll read next?

October TBR

October is a pretty fun month for me! I love it when the weather gets colder and the days get darker (I’m a night shifter worker so I definitely sleep better) and after not reading much in September due to work, I’m ready to jump back into things. I have a vague plan of listening to 31 audiobooks in the month of October (Chandler Ainsley did it once and I thought that sounded like an idea I would both enjoy and regret) so we shall see. I have ambitious plans so we’ll see whether they go anywhere.
