My November + December Favorites, and My January TBR

I know, it’s been a while since I’ve done a TBR and Favorites post. December (and early January for that matter) was insane, and I was mostly prioritizing end of year posts and reviews. I wanted to have this posted last week, but I was in Disney, and the WordPress app hates me so I couldn’t get it up on time. So, despite the month being almost over, I still want to share my January TBR.

Also, since I missed my November favorites wrap up, I thought I’d combine it with my December favorites here. Yeah, I got quite a bit to talk about today, so let’s get to it!

September Favorites + October TBR

September Favorites + My October TBR!

September was a rough month. The semester started, I picked up more work hours, and I was trying to make two new cosplays for NYCC. That said, I still reached my quota of 10 books! (Barely, but it counts).

Hopefully, things will calm down a little now that the convention is over and the semester is in full swing. Although I did just get cast in a play, so maybe more free time isn’t exactly a realistic goal?

Either way, I wanted to talk about some of my favorite books that helped me survive the insanity that was September, and some of the books I plan to get to this month.

Disney-A-Thon Wrap Up!

Disney is kinda my brand (outside of books, that is). I’m known at work as the girl who always wears Disney dresses, I cosplay as Disney Princesses, I’m a Disney Vacation Club Member and I visit Disney World almost every year, and my house was literally designed after Disney.

Needless to say, I was excited to do this Disney-A-Thon.

Especially because I was going to Disney this month.

However, I’m awful at sticking to TBRs, and readathons scare me, so I knew this would definitely be a challenge. Not to mention, I set up pretty high goals for myself for the month.

If you haven’t seen my Disney-A-Thon TBR, here’s a link to catch up!

Read more to see if I actually managed to reach those goals, or if I crumbled under pressure!

August Favorites + My September TBR!

I had a busy month is August, but despite that, I managed to read 10 books! I focused a lot on the Disney-A-Thon in August, (I even did some of my reading is Disney World!), so while I’ll talk about some of my favorites now, I’ll be posting a full Disney-A-Thon wrap up soon!

I started August off strong, but I definitely fell behind on my goals. That said, I’m still happy to have read 10 books. Hopefully I’ll keep the momentum going in September!

July Favorites, Reading Rush Wrap Up, + My August TBR!

I think I finally did it. I think I beat my reading slump.

It only took me… five months. But I did it!!!

July was a surprisingly good month for me. At this point, I had given up all hope and thought that I would never regain the motivation to read like I had, but then came The Reading Rush.

Readathons scare me. A lot. So I had never done one before. I never liked the idea of pushing myself to read as much as possible, because I thought it would inevitably cause me to burn myself out.

Looks like I was wrong.
