How are we in the middle of 2020 already? It’s simultaneously been the longest and the shortest year, and the time distortion is really throwing me off. However, I want to shift the focus from this mind-boggling fact and celebrate the highs and lows of the first half of the year with you all today. I challenged myself to pick a different book for each of the questions, changed some of the wordings and added one at the beginning to round it out to 15. I really hope you like my answers to the mid-year book freak out tag and find some interesting books to add to your TBR in 2020!Read More »Mid-Year Book Freak Out Tag 2020
I want to make it clear that this post is geared towards people who want to genuinely expand their reading horizons. If you think diversity is some sort of fad you want in on, this isn’t for you.

This tag felt perfect to me because I didn’t want to do another picking books kind of tag. I feel like my answers have become repetitive for those and I wanted to freshen things up. Without further ado, let’s get on to the questions!Read More »The Finished Books Tag
Time may be only an illusion but it did fly by this January. 2020 has been off to an interesting start so far. Going into it, I was less prepared than I would have liked to be – pages on the blog were still under construction, not a single post was scheduled and I had a ton of things that I hadn’t planned out. How did that pan out for me? Let’s nosedive into my January 2020 wrap-up to find out!Read More »January 2020 Wrap-Up: The Big Bang!
Whenever I mention reading to my friends and acquaintances in real life, most people seem to be firmly divided into two categories – those who want to read but can’t seem to find the time and those who think reading is a boring habit. I do appreciate the honesty of the second group but if you are reading this, you probably already know reading is good for you. This guide is for the first group of people who want to build a reading habit but can’t seem to for a variety of reasons.Read More »How to Build a Regular Reading Habit
