September 2018 Wrap-Up

I’ll admit it. This past couple months I’ve been slacking on posts. It’s to the point that I’ve forgotten to do a wrap-up for… I don’t even know how many months I skipped. In fact, I don’t remember the last time I did a wrap up. It’s been that long.

This month, I decided I really needed to step up my post game and made a goal to post at least once a week. Because of that, I actually have enough posts to do a wrap up!

June 2018 TBR

Summer has officially started for me, and since I’m so behind on my reading schedule, I decided to make a little TBR to encourage myself to get backing into reading.

Plus, I have so many books I need to catch up on that I need to force myself to start reading them or I will forever be behind.

January 2018 Wrap-Up | What’s New?

The first month of 2018 is at it’s end and boy, am I glad it’s over. Let’s just say I had a rough start of the new year. I had to take finals, then went through the grueling process of trying to change one of my classes for the new semester. This semester I’m taking most of my hard classes so I’m struggling to keep up with everything.

All that being said, I haven’t had the time to read… (which is nothing new at this point).

Let’s just say I need a fresh start and I’m glad February is right around the corner.

2018 Bookish (and Non-Bookish) Goals

The new year brings new resolutions, and that means it’s time for me to make new goals for myself. I don’t really like calling them resolutions because the definition sounds restrictive.

Just for reference, the definition I read of “resolution” on the internet was this:

a firm decision to do or not to do something

I don’t know about you, but that sounds like an ultimatum to me. It’s like I have to decide whether or not I want to proceed with a certain habit and it will be a life or death decision. In reality, it’s not that big of a deal, but it’s still rather important. That’s why I’m going to refer to my “resolutions” as “goals” instead. It sounds more achievable and more forgiving.

Day 868 – Happy New Year!

Folks, we finally made it! It is the New Year! Happy New Year everybody! I hope everyone is having a great first day of 2018!

2017 was an eventful year with its ups and downs, so I’m super glad that it’s finally 2018.

*celebratory dance*

I hope everyone else had a wonderful 2017, and are will have an even better 2018!

My only New Year Resolution is to try new things, so I decided to make an Instagram book account! My username is @theawkwardbookblogger (wow, creative username, I know), if any of you guys want to check me out (I haven’t posted anything yet at the time I’m writing this post…). Just a warning: I’m not that great at photography, so my account will probably not be as artsy as a lot of other bookstagram-ers. In fact, I might not even consider my account to be a bookstagram, but more of a place that I talk/rant/fangirl about books. Only time will tell…

Here’s to another great year filled with reading, blogging, and community! (Can I get any cheesier? XD) Stay awesome, everyone!

It’s 2018, and a new year means a whole new load of books to be excited for!

I’ve decided to compile a list of my most anticipated releases of 2018 because I normally don’t do monthly anticipated releases.

(All the synopses in this point are taken directly from Goodreads.)

(There are some spoilers as some of these books are part of a series. I put spoiler warnings before their synopses and provided a drop down so the summaries are hidden unless you click on the drop down.)
