This year was an amazing one for me, with a lot of changes in my life and on the blog. I had to stop doing the Waiting on Wednesday posts at some point during the year simply because I was so busy working and volunteering and dating that I wasn’t leaving myself any time to look forward to any books. I switched to posted my Stacking the Shelves posts once a month because it was taking up a lot of time and I was shopping for books less and less. These changes were really beneficial for me just in terms of saving time and stress for myself. I’ve reviewed a lot of exciting books this year, and read some others that didn’t get reviews on the blog (especially comics), so I feel like the blog has been filled with content that I feel quite proud of.
So I saw this over at The Readingdesk Reviews and decided I’d also do it. Basically the idea is to pick the 10 books you really want to read in the new year. I have at least 100 books in storage here that I haven’t read so this is a great way to reflect on my book purchases and remind myself of some of the ones I really want to read.
This week I’ll once again be taking part in Stacking the Shelves hosted by Tynga’s Reviews. The idea of for Stacking the Shelves is to talk about the books you’ve bought, borrowed, etc. and show off and talk about your purchases and borrows. This is basically the perfect feature for me because I buy way more books, and read way more books, than I’ll ever be able to review. I’ll most likely talk about the stores I bought the books at as well, especially if they’re independent stores.
This week I purchased 6 books, received 1 book on Goodreads First Reads, and received 3 books on Edelweiss. Check it out below!
