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 13

Happy anything and everything, you guys! WordPress sent me a notification saying that I have so far written 50 posts! That is crazy, and so exciting! Anyways, here’s my weekly reading update, WWW Wednesday which is a weekly meme hosted by  Sam @ Taking On A World of Words. How it works is I answer 3 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 still currently reading The Book Thief, by Marcus Zusak. The Book Thief is a really good book! I just don’t know if its good for me. Some books I cannot put down and have to finish in one day. This book isn’t really like that. It’s a very compelling story, but it just isn’t making me want to sit down for a few hours and read it.

I’m also rereading It Ain’t so Awful, Falafel, by Firoozeh Dumas. As always, this book is amazing!

What did you recently finish reading?

I know that I have recently finished reading something, but I really can’t remember what it is!

What do you think you’ll read next?

Next, I want to read Girl on a Wire, by Gwenda Bond.

What are you reading right now? Have you read the book thief? Chat with me in the comments below!

Happy Reading!

November Wrap Up

Hey! I can’t believe it’s already December; the season of holidays and snow! (haha it doesn’t snow in Eugene in December) I am so excited for winter break, and fun fact: Hanukkah falls right over Christmas this year!

Anyways, November has been a crazy month, but I actually managed to read quite a few books, so here’s my hopefully mostly complete list of the books I read in the past month, and by TBR (to be read) for the next month.

Books I read:

My TBR:

In December, I’m going to continue to reread the OBOB (Oregon Battle of the Books) books, but I there are also some books I’ve been wanting to read for a long time. I actually either own or borrowed from the library all of the books on my TBR, so here’s a picture of them, and a list of the titles:

  • The Book Thief, by Marcus Zusak
  • Sarah’s Key, by Tatiana de Rosnay
  • The Pox Party, The Astonishing Life of Octavian Nothing #1, by M. T. Anderson
  • The Giant Pumpkin Suite, by Melanie Heuisier Hill
  • Girl on a Wire, by Gwenda Bond
  • The Wolf Wilder, by Katherine Rundell
  • For Black Girls Like me, by Mariama J. Lockington
  • All the Answers, by Kate Messner
  • Orange for the Sunsets, by Tina Athaide

That TBR and rereading the OBOB books is a lot, but I am going to try!

Posts I want to Write:

This month, I want to write:

  • 3: Top Ten Tuesday
  • 4: WWW Wednesday
  • 3 4: Let’s Talk Bookish
  • 4: Book Reviews

That’s 15 posts, which is a lot, but I really want to post more, especially book reviews, because even though they are the hardest posts to write, they are still really fun, and I enjoy it a lot!

So, that pretty much wraps up my month in books, so I hope you all have an amazing December!

Happy Reading!
