How I did on my winter TBR

SO… I made a TBR (to be read) list of ten books back in December, and now that it’s officially spring, I thought I’d see how I did! And this is a short introduction paragraph, but I really don’t care, so, moving on now…

WWW Wednesday 22

Hi there! I am finally now reading non-OBOB books. The reason is sad though, the state competition was canceled because of the coronavirus. So was basically everything else, including school which has been canceled for me the 28th. Of April. The one good side to that however is that I am having a lot of time to read and to write, so that is good great amazingly fantastic. Anyways, here is my weekly reading update, WWW Wednesday! WWW Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Sam @ Taking On a World of Words, and how it works is each week I answer three questions:

Top Ten Tuesday: Recent additions to my bookshelf

Hello and happy Tuesday! Right now where I live it is extremely rainy, which is great because I like the rain! Anyways, my first OBOB battle (Oregon battle of the books, a competition where teams battle to answer questions about 16 chosen books) is tomorrow, so I’ve been squeezing in as much reading as I can. Anyways, right now it’s time for this week’s Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by Jana @ That Artsy Reader Girl, and this week’s topic is the 10 most recent additions to my bookshelf.

This is kind of hard because I have gotten a lot of books in the last few months and I don’t actually remember the order, but I’ll try, so without further ado, my most recent-ish additions to my bookshelf.

1 It Ain’t So Awful, Falafel, by Firoozeh Dumas

2 The Teacher’s Funeral, by Richard Peck

3 Ordinary Girls, by Blair Thornbush

Ok. So I got all three of those over winter break. I’m sure of that.

But before that was my birthday and my bat mitzvah, and because every one I know knows I love to read, I got a lot of books. Which is definitely not a bad thing. It is definitely a very very good thing. However, I don’t know the order in which I received the books, so I’m just going to list some more books that have recently-ish made their way onto my bookshelf.

4 The Alchemist, by Paulo Coelho

5 The Wolf Wilder, by Katherine Rundell

6 Before We Were Free, by Julia Alvarez

7 Giant Pumpkin Suite, by Melanie Heusier Hill

8 The Sun is Also a Star, by Nicola Yoon

9 Everything, Everything, by Nicola Yoon

X The Book Thief, by Marcus Zusak

Ahhhh… formatting in WordPress is hard sometimes.

What are some of your recent additions to your bookshelf? Have you read any of the books I’ve mentioned? Do you also think that Nicola Yoon’s book covers are really really pretty? Chat with me in the comments below!

WWW Wednesday 14

Happy new year, everybody! I can’t believe that it’s 2020! A whole new decade! Anyways, for now, it’s time for WWW Wednesday, my weekly reading update! WWW Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Sam @ Taking On a World of Words, and how it works is each week I answer three questions:

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

What are you currently reading?

I am currently reading The Astonishing Life of Octavian Nothing: Volume 1, The Pox Party, by M. T. Anderson and Port Chicago 50, by Steve Sheinkin, and I’m currently listening to The Girl who Drank the Moon, by Kelly Barnhill. I’m rereading The Girl who Drank the Moon, and Port Chicago 50, but both are very good, and so far, I’m really enjoying The Pox Party.

What did you recently finish reading?

I recently finished rereading It Ain’t So Awful, Falafel, by Firoozeh Dumas and The Wolf Wilder by Katherine Rundell, and I recently finished listening to one of the 39 clues books, but I forgot which one. (It’s not the maze of bones, and it’s by a different author, but it’s the same series!)

What do you think you’ll read next?

Next, I want to read Before We Were Free, by Julia Alvarez, The Alchemist, by Paulo Coelho, and Turtle in Paradise by Jennifer L. Holm.

I’ll also probably reread The Teacher’s Funeral, by Richard Peck!

Happy New Year, and Happy Reading!
