what to use instead of goodreads

I have been using Goodreads for years. Back when I first got into book tracking in 2011 I found Goodreads and immediately started adding all the books I had read and still continue to do so. I generally really do enjoy Goodreads. I love all the people that I am able to follow and get…

the best books i read this month – october 2020

The end of the month always seems to sneak up on me until I realize it is time for another book blogpost! I always enjoy looking back on my goodreads list of what I have read this month and picking out some of my favourites (and remembering some that I didn’t enjoy as much). This…

the best books i read this month – september 2020

Fall is here y’all and I am stoked. I have started turning my fireplace on and cuddling up with a blanket and hot cup of tea while I get drawn into a new book has been a real highlight of the last month. There has been a lot of 5 star read this month and…

re-reading old books

I am not a huge re-reader of books. There are very few books that I have read over and over again, mostly because there are so many new books that I want to read that I don’t have the time to go back to them. Over the past few months I found myself going back…

the best books i read this month – august 2020

August has slipped away (like a bottle of wine) and with the end of the month comes my monthly book post about the best books I read this month. This month brought back for me reading while sitting on transit which is lovely and also I read a few of my old favourite books which…

Summer has arrived! It is so nice to actually start wearing the shorts that are in my closet and also to discover that my home stays pretty cool, even on the days that go over 30 degrees. I always love starting to write these blog posts because it means I get to take a look…

the best books i read this month – june 2020

This has not been a normal month and as such this will not be a normal book blog post. I have been posting these monthly best book posts since almost the beginning of my blog life and I love posting them, but sometimes things in the world are too loud for you to ignore. Earlier…

the best books i read this month – may 2020

And just like that another month at home has passed. Not much has changed in my household, we are both still not working, my garden and plants are helping to keep me mentally sane, and I am still reading a lot. We have been able to start seeing some of our friends in a socially…

the best books i read this month – april 2020

Well what a month this has been. Everyone has had different experiences with reading at this time. There are people that are usually big readers that can’t seem to pick up a book, and others that are reading more than ever. Neither of these are wrong. If you are reading lots right now here are…
