#IMWAYR ~ 7/27/20

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? a place to meet up and share what you have been, and are about to be reading over the week. It’s a great post to organise yourself. It’s an opportunity to visit and comment and er… add to your groaning TBR pile! So welcome in everyone. This meme started on J Kaye’s blog and then was hosted by Sheila from Book Journey. Sheila then passed it on to Kathryn at The Book Date. Jen Vincent, Teach Mentor Texts, and Kellee of Unleashing Readers decided to give It’s Monday! a kidlit focus. If you read and review books in children’s literature – picture books, chapter books, middle grade novels, young adult novels or anything in those genres – join them.

July 2020 TBR

I’ll be participating in Jane Austen July this month, but of course I won’t ONLY be reading Austen and Austen inspired books this month. So, I still decided to put together a TBR for this month. Some of these are books I’m hoping to get to as part of the New-to-Me Author Challenge I’m participating in right now, too. But, as always, this list is just for fun. Who knows how many I’ll actually get to.

April 2020 Monthly Wrap-Up

As I already mentioned, I didn’t do so great with my April TBR. But, that’s just fine with me! I still made my way through quite a stack of books!

WWW Wednesday ~ 4/8/20

Welcome to WWW Wednesday! This meme is hosted by Taking on a World of Words.

The Three Ws are:

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

So, I have finished 3 books since Monday, which is good. But, you can see from all the books I have going that I’m still struggling with finding the right books to suit my mood here lately. It’s really rather weird, too. I have been totally content staying at home and quarantining with my family. Actually, I’ve been feeling blessed to be getting all of this time with my oldest, who is hardly home between work and college. But, I suppose even with that my body is still feeling the stress of what’s going on in the world.

Welcome to WWW Wednesday! This meme is hosted by Taking on a World of Words.

The Three Ws are:

What are you currently reading?

What do you think you’ll read next?

Happy Wednesday! How are y’all doing today? My family and I are all doing well. We’re doing our best to thrive in this mess, and honestly I’m just really feeling grateful for all the family time we’re getting! And it didn’t rain yesterday, nor has it rained today. Bonus!! I’ve been enjoying lots of board games with the kiddos, and other games that we made up ourselves. One we played last night revolved around music. We take turns playing 2 songs each. Points go to the first person that can name the title, artist, and album – one point each. We’ve played this a lot over the years on all our car rides. Living out in the country means even a trip to the closest Walmart is 20 minutes. But, I can say that my kids have a rather large music appreciation from it.

April 2020 TBR

At the beginning of March I was looking forward to vacation and some rare family time – especially with my oldest in college. Little did I know that a couple weeks later we’d start our journey of having more family time than I ever imagined possible again. So, I’ve been doing my best to focus on appreciating that.

But, I still love my reading, too, and let’s face it, it’s a great escape – especially if you can find the right books! I’m really looking forward to completing my O.W.L.s in April, but I’m looking forward to a lot of other books, too. Here’s what I have planned ~ all very subject to change depending on my moods. LOL! But, I’m a list maker….

My Goodreads TBR Must Reads for 2020

It’s time for me to share another of my 2020 reading goals! I am feeling so good about getting all my goals mapped out. I might be a little anal… But that’s okay because it’s all fun for me! So, without further ado, the next goal I want to share with y’all is 12 books I’m determined to read in 2020 that are sitting on my Goodreads TBR. I’ll have a separate post with TBR books that are sitting on my actual bookshelf.

Here’s my BuJo page ~
