Simone Read What? – January ’19

Simone Read What? – January ’19

For 2019, I’ve set my Goodreads Reading Challenge to 48 books, up by 12 from last year. I have faith in myself that I can do it, but it still seems like a lot to read—to me at least!

While end of the year round-ups are fun, I figured I’d do monthly ones too. So if you’re interested in seeing what I’ve read this month and what I thought about them, please do read on!

My Physical TBR List

My Physical TBR List

Here’s the deal: I like books. I really like books. I like books so much that I keep buying them. 

Unfortunately, I don’t read them all in a very timely manner. No, there are books on my shelves that I bought years ago and still haven’t cracked open just yet. It’s not that I don’t want to read them—I do, I really do—it’s just that the stack has grown so large that I feel like I’ll never get through them all.

(Of course, I don’t make my life any easier by buying more books every single month, both physical and ebooks, but that’s a story for another day!)

One of my goals for this year is to try to tackle this ever-growing TBR pile, and I figured the best way to hold myself accountable (and generally help myself stay organized) was to list them all here.

So if you want to know what’s in my physical TBR pile, read on!

Favorite Books of 2018

Favorite Books of 2018

Once upon a time, I had lofty dreams of being a book blogger. I wanted to read hundreds of books a year, take pretty pictures of them, and carefully analyze their messages.

But, uh… I am not capable of that. I’m lazy, crappy at taking photographs, and I don’t have the vocabulary to truly describe a book past I loved it!!! It’s taken some time, but I’ve finally come to terms with those facts—although that doesn’t mean I won’t be posting about some of my favorite books.

So now that 2018 is drawing to a close, I can share my favorite reads of the year!
