I joined the Netgalley & Edelweiss Challenge hosted by Bookish Things and More.  This is my update for September.

 

It looks like the Bookish Things & More blog isn’t there anymore.  Does anyone know if someone else took over this challenge?  I haven’t been able to add my links.  But I’m still going to keep posting these.

September 2018 Blog Stats

 

September was a really rough month for my blog.  Luckily it seams that it’s just a slow month for bloggers in general and wasn’t just me.  My numbers all went down except for followers which went up a little bit.  I hope that October will be better for everyone.

September 2018 Wrap Up

 

September wasn’t my best reading month, but I did read a lot of books that I ended up loving.  I was sick for awhile and for some reason, I don’t want to read much.  I think I just get too tired.

 

Here is what I ended up reading/listening to:

 

 

Ms Marvel Volume 5   144 pages   5 stars

Scream All Night   audibook (reread)  5 stars

What If It’s Us (arc)   448 pages  5 stars

Down the TBR Hole #49

 

Down The TBR Hole is a meme created by lost in a story that revolves around cleansing your TBR of all those books you’re never going to read and sort through it all to know what’s actually on there.

Most of you probably know this feeling, your Goodreads TBR pile keeps growing and growing and it seems like there is no light at the end of the tunnel. You keep adding, but you add more than you actually read. And then when youre scrolling through your list, you realize that you have no idea what half the books are about and why you added them. Well thats going to change!

It works like this:

  • Go to your goodreads to-read shelf.
  • Order on ascending date added.
  • Take the first 5 (or 10 (or even more!) if youre feeling adventurous) books. Of course, if you do this weekly, you start where you left off the last time.
  • Read the synopses of the books
  • Decide: keep it or should it go

 

I’m going to start doing these a little differently to save picture space/time.  I’ll still list all 15-20 books, but I’m only going to add a few pictures.  It will likely be the books I’m keeping unless there are none for the week.  Then I’ll add a few random ones so it’s not super boring.
